Our Language School

Since 2004 our language school has teached students from all over the world. We offer courses for beginners, intermediate and advanced students. All of our teachers are fantastic, patient and professional.


Our Spanish Program

At our school you can choose to learn spanish in the morning or in the afternoon. You can apply to one of our different schedules. 4hrs per day, 3hrs per day or even 5hrs for a more intensive spanish course.

All of our classes are one to one basis. Classes begin with an exploration to determine the level or knowledge of the language, focusing on the need and type of Spanish required.

You have the full attention of your teacher. Also, you do not have to worry about the "stage-fright" factor inherent in attempting to utter unfamiliar sounds and words in front of a classroom audience.

The school provides necessary materials required for your course (grammar information, homework, vocabulary).* The duration of your course depends on your needs and experience. We suggest between 4 to 8 weeks depending on our previous knowledge.*
