Student Advancement: Karen to B2!

My name is:

My name is Karen.


My new level is:

My new level is B2.⁣ ⁣


Approximately how much time do you dedicate to working on your Spanish outside of Spanish class?

I typically spend a total of perhaps one to two hours a week conversing in Spanish with patient friends, family, and coworkers. These are usually short conversations (1-30 minutes each) that add up over time.

On average, how many times per week do you take Spanish classes @ Pura Buena Onda?



What role has Pura Buena Onda played in helping you improve your Spanish & advance to the next level?⁣

Going to class regularly, and having to think in Spanish for an hour and a half straight, is extremely helpful. The classes are so much fun and are the main place where I acquire vocabulary and contemplate rules of grammar. I especially appreciate how the teachers speak at a rate of speed that is appropriate to the level, because I can understand most of what they say and hear the correct construction. I also appreciate speaking with other learners. Hearing others make the same mistakes I do, and having the teacher gently correct us, helps me to be aware of when I’m about to make them. Often I still can’t remember which way is the correct one, but asking the person I’m talking to feels better than just making the mistake and not knowing it!


What are some of your favorite resources?⁣

Linguee, and my children and friends who speak Spanish!
