Individual classesSingle individual lessons of tuition can be reserved at 40 US$. The combination of group and individual lessons is highly recommended. Individual lessons will encourage you to actively speak the foreign language and will offer you the opportunity to discuss individual problems and weaknesses.
Comments about courses:Classes are divided into two blocks: Grammar & Conversation. Lessons are designed according to the student’s skills and level; so a student who, for example, is good at speaking but not as good at writing will be placed in two different levels, with different teachers and classmates.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: Take advantage of the chances to interact with the staff and other students through the activities.
Other comments: It came as advertised. It concentrates not on dry drill but learning and USING Spanish though immersing the student in a Spanish-speaking environment. There are so many opportunities to not only learn Spanish but to use it through conversation and activities.
