When the socio-political crisis in Colombia forced the founder of SpanishNYC, Luis Cardozo, to leave his home country in 1999, his two main assets to start a new life in NYC were a law degree and his passion for languages.
Luis saw that in NYC, even with several Spanish schools and native Spanish speakers, students still thought that learning this language was a difficult skill to achieve; so, he decided to create SpanishNYC, applying the method he had created, the Natural Conversational Approach, also focusing on the needs and desires of business and families. Today, SpanishNYC continues his successful mission to help students from all ages achieve their Spanish goals. And, the Law degree? Well, who needs another lawyer when tapas, mojitos and salsa and excellent students are so much fun!
