I can speak Spanish easier and I can understand conversations between two native speakers. Mi classes with my teacher were excellent because we spoke a lot. She could correct me without interrupting the conversation. She is very positive and when I feel comfortable, I learn a lot.


Patrick Perkins

I like that I was able to use what I learned and I am very glad I was here for the 1st and 2nd levels of the program. I feel that it would be substandard for me not to continue with the 2nd level. The Institute is incredibly well organized with an obviously interested and dedicated staff.

Learning Spanish at the Institute makes a lot of sense. The totality of the experience --- small class size, one on one conversation, living with a local family, the group excursion and the entire staff made my time and the Institute productive.
