DURA Automotive Systems is a global automotive supplier specializing in the design, engineering and manufacturing of solutions that drive the evolution of mobility. 

Headquartered in Rochester Hills, Michigan, Studio Espanol was brought in because of their need to help their team to become comfortable conversing in Spanish with their Spanish speaking colleagues primarily in Mexico.  

DURA’s general counselor had experienced our conversational approach and loved it. They were looking for Spanish language and cultural training for a small group twice per week. We customized a program and scheduled training at their facilities with sessions twice per week for one and a half hours per session.  We began with a single group, but after a few weeks into the program we were told that the word had spread about our very efficient and fun program and there was another new group of 15 students wanting to start.



Our company held a series of Spanish classes on-site at our office in Rochester Hills. Joaquin was our instructor and I could not say enough positive things about him and his teaching ability. He promoted a working environment where the entire class was engaged and actively participated. Since the majority of the class was introverted mechanical engineers, this was no easy feat. Please feel free to contact me direct if you have further questions. Thank You.
