Learn to Speak and Understand Spanish at Your Own Pace
Private sessions with a Spanish tutor are the most applauded by our students. Each session lasts 90 minutes and provides the optimal format to get the most out of the Natural Conversational Approach.
Your private lessons in Spanish will follow a natural, reinforcing and progressive approach. Each of our instructors has personally experienced learning a second language. Therefore, they have an understanding of how you may feel as the learner. Course work begins by instilling confidence in you as the student about your progress and mastery of increasing vocabulary. It will lead you step-by-step as your proficiency and comfort-level grow to the extent of proficient Spanish speaking and understanding.
When it comes to picking up languages our mantra is “Learning must be fun.” It is an approach that works and leads to faster progress in developing speaking and understanding skills. It is important to be part of a Spanish school that has a sense of community – extending all the way to the enjoyment and sense of accomplishment you will feel as your skills develop. A learning-by-doing approach that is consistent, well-planned and personalized will make your private Spanish lessons enjoyable and productive.
Spanish classes will help your team succeed when your company is opening new markets in Latin America or appealing to cross-cultural audiences. Your courses will be tailored to your unique needs.
Each group needs custom tailored classes in Spanish that address specific goals. Our instructors will individually design each lesson to ensure the development and advancement of each person’s communication skills both listening/understanding and speaking. Private courses include attention to vocabulary and comprehension as the group, and each individual’s skills develop. It means you’ll pick up Spanish more quickly and efficiently, and at much less than the cost of language courses at a New York City college.
Many people who have corporate projects that need to be in Spanish already have worked with us, and the roster of successful and productive students grows longer continuously. Almost all have become strong supporters of the NCA method – the Natural Conversational Approach – which helped them more easily learn Spanish. It provides a framework for developing understanding and vocabulary, continuing even after your courses with us are completed. It will be a method that you will use time and again as you increase your proficiency in the Spanish language.
