Spanish Classes

All classes are customized for the participants’ language level, goals, interests and specific needs, as well as learning styles.

Private lessons and semi-private lessons

These lessons are customized for each individual student, taking into account their language level, goals, interests and learning style. We focus on all 4 language skills: reading, writing, speaking and listening, as well as discussing culturally relevant topics to increase understanding about Latin American and Spanish cultures and practices.
