Intermediate Spanish Discussion SIG

This group is designed for Osher members who have an intermediate knowledge of Spanish and wish to improve their conversational and listening skills. The group focuses upon speaking, listening, and reading, with emphasis on building vocabulary, sharpening knowledge of everyday usage and idioms, and improving grammatical usage, through directed conversation, readings, and grammar exercises. 

All members of the group take turns on a weekly basis developing lessons, relying upon the books (designated below) of readings, grammar and vocabulary exercises, and internet resources. People registering for this group should have these books on the first day of class: — “101 Conversations in Intermediate Spanish: Short Natural Dialogues to Improve Your Spoken Spanish” (Spanish Edition) by Olly Richards — is available for Kindle for $3.99 or in paperback for $14.99. “The Ultimate Spanish Review and Practice” book available from Amazon for $20. It’s a good investment and will serve for many years to come as we continue this group. It’s a very helpful reference book. Questions may be directed to Harvey Kurtz at

Dates and locations to be announced.
