Don't expect a traditional class setting like your high school class :). Be prepared to have fun, relax, laugh and learn! Our small - group classes allow you to have plenty of opportunities to speak in Spanish. We use different materials and tools to keep you engaged and help you to develop the different skills of the language. We embrace technology, encouraging our students to use specific apps, websites, and other resources to practice at home. Come meet new people, and enjoy our classes!

Our sessions run from 6-9 weeks, so the material covered for each level  will depend on the duration of the session and the students' needs. Our goal is not to finish a curriculum but to help you to feel confident about using the language.
