Lessons in Spanish only: Our lessons are given entirely in Spanish, except Beginners I, where the professor is allowed to help students with just a short translations.
Group Size: There is an average of 3 students per class and a maximum of 5, resulting in a high level of individual attention and facilitating the most rapid Spanish learning.
Schedule: Rainy Season: starts in May and ends in October. The
characteristic of the Rainy Season is that it starts raining almost everyday after lunch time, between 12 and 2 p.m. So be prepared and bring your rain coat and umbrella. During Rainy Season, we schedule our lessons in the afternoon from 1 to 5 p.m., in order for students to visit the city or other sites in the morning, when it is sunny, and take classes in the afternoon when it starts raining. If it rains in the morning we have the flexibility to change this schedule.4 days of Spanish lessons costs:
