A Spanish class that's as fun as a vacation!
Since 1994, with a group of assistant teachers from around the Spanish-speaking world, I have been teaching languages in local coffee shops. Since the pandemic of 2020, almost all teaching is happening online.
Hundreds and hundreds of successful students
With my team, I have enabled many hundreds of students to become bilingual, improving their vacations, employment opportunities and personal relationships.
No one has ever become fluent just by studying
I recognize that no one has ever studied their way to fluency. Memorizing rules is not an efficient way to become bilingual.
It's not simply about learning to speak. It's also a matter of speaking to learn. People normally learn languages by using them.
A practical path to proficiency
With each lesson, we help you make measurable, meaningful progress. We will never overwhelm you with material way beyond your level. And we won't treat you like a child. We will help you advance one manageable level at a time.
I focus on building spoken proficiency first. Afterwards, reading and writing follow easily. That is the natural order of language acquisition.
Students surprised by results
One of our students was asked by a co-worker, "What do you do every Wednesday?" She explained, "I get together with friends. I laugh for an hour. When I'm done, I can speak Spanish, and I don't know why."
