Our Spanish-language program takes a unique approach to language learning in order to help students of all levels achieve fluency. We focus on creating an environment that encourages students to feel comfortable enough to make mistakes so that they can interact with their classmates and become fluent.

A special feature of our Spanish classes is the intercambios, or exchanges, where students periodically get to interact and converse with native speakers enrolled in our English-language classes, who in turn get to practice their English too.

All Spanish-language classes take place at 2750 Buford Highway, NE, Atlanta, GA 30324.

Classes are offered during the week at noon and in the evening and on Saturday mornings. New student tuition is $250; returning student tuition is $220. We offer various beginner’s level courses, as well as various intermediate and advanced courses.

Students with some knowledge of Spanish are invited to take a FREE placement test when registering for the first time. The evaluation will help us better understand the strengths and needs of new students. Based on the results, we will recommend the course level best suited to the student’s current proficiency.
