UPCOMING CLASSES

Immersion series are added on an ongoing basis as they become available. Aventuras 1 & 2 classes tend to  fill up quickly,

so we suggest you subscribe to our website to receive notifications of future classes.

¡Hola a todos!

We're so happy you're here and can't wait to bring you on many "aventuras" (adventures) with the Spanish language! Building language proficiency takes time, but it can be enjoyable! We are here to guide and motivate you! Our Immersion Series are designed to provide you with lots of exposure to the highest-frequency verbs in comprehensible, engaging and communicative contexts to get you comfortable communicating in Spanish!

We offer 5 levels of immersion: Aventuras 1-5. To find the right level for you, please read the student descriptors below each level. Our courses are designed to be taken as many times as needed until you feel ready to move up to the next level. Go at your own pace to experience the most success! 

The customized language exposure and interaction that we are offering you in these classes is not available for free online or even in the most expensive language-learning software programs. Please note that these are not grammar classes. Very short explanations of grammar will be given as needed in the context of communication, but we will not use class time to discuss grammar. If you are desiring grammar explanations, you can find TONS of free resources online!
