We employ an interactive approach to language teaching where students begin speaking Spanish from day one. We also try to make the learning process as enjoyable as possible by including games, debates and student presentations in our course programs. We keep our classes small (generally between 5-8 students) to ensure personalized attention, and we offer 6 distinct class levels to keep students at similar levels of Spanish proficiency together and boost learning potential.
