Each class will take you one step closer to your goal: being comfortable communicating in Spanish. For this reason, we have created a language journey with different milestones for you. Inspiring professors, a proven methodology and motivated students is our winning combination. We offer 6 language levels in accordance with the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. No matter what your level, we work to help you develop the appropriate language skills. Your language success is our success.
Start at 9am: Interactive Grammar: with our method, students take a lead role in their own learning, working in groups or pairs. By working with the professor’s instructions, students will be able to observe, analyze, discover, understand, and assimilate the grammar with the result of applying these skills to practical use (real situations that arise in daily life). Students observe, discover, and understand how the language functions instead of a gaining a shallow understanding of memorized rules. The ultimate goal is a personal ownership and agency over grammatical rules. This methodology is based on Guided Learning principles.

Start at 11am: Conversation and communication: These classes are designed to apply grammar learned earlier in the course using dynamic activities that simultaneously contribute to the development of the students’ speaking and listening skills. There is a wide variety of activities, including debates, roll playing, simulations, presentations, audio comprehension, small group or pair work, brief film clips, etc. In this way, students will learn to defeat the fear and self-consciousness of communicating in a new language within the classroom, before employing more confident language use outside of the classroom.
