Our goal is to offer you the most flexible Spanish-learning experience possible.

Private Tutoring

We offer private tutoring for students who prefer a one-on-one experience. Due to the individual nature, this option is very flexible.

The fee is $22 per hour. You may begin tutoring on any weekday and schedule your classes for any number of hours per day and days per week provided that there is availability. This is a great way to learn Spanish with the personal attention of an instructor.

Enrollment Process

Our enrollment process is simple. Just complete a short form to apply to any of our Spanish programs. In four steps, you can sign up to learn a new language. We even accept payment through our secure website. It couldn’t be easier!

Daily Schedule

The daily schedule for our Spanish programs starts with classes in the morning followed by an immersive experience in the afternoon. We believe that the most effective education combines classed-based learning with practical opportunities to apply the language. This is our daily schedule:

  • 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM: The first class period begins. Students learn from a native instructor and practice reading, writing, speaking and comprehension.
  • 11:00 AM to 11:15 AM: The students take a short break. This is a perfect time to eat, refresh or just relax.
  • 11:15 AM to 1:00 PM: The second class period begins. Students continue learning all areas of Spanish fluency.
  • 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM: Students may participate in our cultural exchange experiences. This is a great opportunity to practice Spanish with native speakers in a more informal and conversational setting. This period is supervised by an instructor but is more relaxed than the classroom learning. These exchanges are included in our group Spanish programs.

Multimedia Lab

Students may also take advantage of our multimedia lab. This includes email, internet access and interactive Spanish-learning applications. The use of this lab is included with your program fees.

We encourage students to use the multimedia lab for at least an hour per day to help them further practice their Spanish. This is an effective way to further develop skills such as pronunciation, reading, writing and listening.

With one hour of multimedia lab time and five hours of instruction, the group programs last for a total of six hours per day. This makes the program 30 hours per week. Students may use the lab for longer if they choose.
