This class focuses on learning how to say conjugate verbs using estar for 'to be' and '-ing' words. In this lesson we will revise leisurely activities such as ‘watching TV’, ‘listening to the radio’ or ‘sending messages to friends’.  We will learn the structure ‘I am doing something’ and will use it to make sentences in present progressive or continuous.  We will then make up our own sentences by using a given template. This class covers key skills in grammar which students will revisit time and time again throughout their Spanish studies, so they can continue building on the knowledge they have learnt in this lesson.
