At the end of B1 Level 11: I can express obligation and prohibition. I can talk about the different habits in my culture and I know different Spanish habits, gestures and social customs. I know about some Hispanic culture such as festivals and celebrations. I can use the impersonal “se” and expressions for habits “lo normal / lo habitual / lo raro…”, the verb “soler” and quantifiers “todo el mundo / la mayoría / muchos / algunos…”.

I have thoroughly enjoyed going to Spanish class and I am very fond of my teacher, she is excellent, she explains the topics well and always goes the extra mile to prepare herself for the lessons
