Teens Speaking Spanish? You Bet!

Our Spanish classes for teenagers are an incredibly interactive experience. They will not only learn the Spanish language, but also understand and appreciate Hispanic culture. To learn the second most spoken language in the world, a teenager will acquire tools to build a multicultural network, travel unhindered by language barriers in Europe, South America, and North America, and expand academic and professional opportunities.

Helping teenagers learn to speak, understand, read & write Spanish is our GOAL! We organize small group classes based on similar levels of speaking ability. That way you get the most interactive experience possible. Our group classes are capped at a maximum of six students, which allows you to speak more frequently while receiving a high-quality and personalized instruction.
We use modern teaching methods and audio-visual resources in the classroom. Our well structured, curriculum based program is framed under the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. We prepare teens for further, advanced Spanish courses in high school, college or university.

Please take a moment to read through our upcoming course schedule and give us a call today. You’ve got questions? We have answers, options and alternatives.
