How long will it take me to learn to speak Spanish?
Like learning to play an instrument, a sport, or any worthwhile endeavor, it depends on each individual and his/her commitment and individual ability. Most of our students stay with us for a long time as they see their progress. It also depends on each person’s goals.

Books and materials are included in our programs.
How can I find out when specific classes meet?

How many classes in a week?
Most groups meet once per week for 1 hour and 15 minutes.
Are the instructors native Spanish speakers?
All of our instructors are native Spanish speakers from different Spanish-speaking countries.
We understand that making every group class may not always be possible. Therefore, you are welcome to make up two group classes per series. You may attend a make-up class the week of or after your absence with a different group. Please check with us regarding the schedule of available classes and times.
What is different from other Spanish learning programs?
Our methodology is based on conversations in a relaxed and fun environment. Conversations are the natural way we all learn our native language. By speaking, listening, reading, and writing in Spanish we start hearing, speaking, and listening to other Spanish speakers, and reading and writing in Spanish. Our small group sessions are fun and productive. Students help and learn from each other. We feel that by making the journey of learning Spanish enjoyable, everybody benefits.
What do we think about software language training?
We feel like it cannot hurt but like learning to play a sport or an instrument, it falls short. Would you learn to play golf or tennis with software?
Is there a placement test?
No. Students new to Spanish need to join the Beginner’s class. Those with previous experience may try out any of our ongoing groups.
Is there free parking?
Free parking is available behind the building.
