Welcome to Spanish NYCLUIS CARDOZO, DIRECTOR
"Luis Cardozo is an outstanding (Spanish) teacher. He knows how to motivate students and keep them motivated. His lessons relate the Spanish language to everyday life and to the student's own concerns and interests. Luis is also a gifted communicator with a great sense of humor; I highly recommend his school to students at any level."
- Michael R. Bloomberg, Mayor of New York
The NATURAL CONVERSATIONAL APPROACH:
IT'S ALL ABOUT YOU!
The Natural Conversational Approach - or NCA - used by SpanishNYC is the result of more than five years of research in language education and more than 25 years' teaching experience. It allows our students to achieve amazing results in a very short time.
The NCA was conceived and designed by the director of SpanishNYC, Luis Cardozo, with you, the individual learner, in mind. The NCA is totally focused on your specific background, based on the idea that everyone has unique talents, interests, strengths and challenges. The principles and techniques of the NCA allow us to intuit your needs, keep you motivated and insure that your instruction is effective.
Our students speak, write and read Spanish quickly and efficiently — and most importantly, they enjoy the whole process. Remember, it's all about you. By using the NCA, our instructors seem to read your mind and even your mood, allowing you to absorb Spanish consciously and unconsciously, just as you did when you learned your native language.
With the NCA, you hear and understand Spanish from the first moment, whatever your level is. We create a relaxed practicing environment, where learning takes place easily and pleasurably. You, the student, dictate how we should adapt to YOUR way of learning, day by day. And since every day is different, every lesson with SpanishNYC is, too.
