Conversational Series


We offer semi-private lessons of 2-8 people. Classes are held in our classroom in the  West San Jose/Campbell area, or we can arrange classes on-site at a venue to be arranged.

We will assess you over the phone to determine your level.  Our classes feature the basic elements listed below and are interactive with real-life dialogues. Additionally, we provide vocabulary relevant to your job or personal interests -whether it be to close a deal in Spanish or teach arts & crafts to Mexican students.

Classes are offered in ten-hour increments. We build classes around your schedule and location.  You will really notice improvement if you continue to come and practice. Classes are usually scheduled for one hour per week  for ten weeks, but we can also work with your schedule if you have a specific need. Prerequisite for the Level 1 Class is knowledge of the 7 Basic Competencies.

We also provide assistance to native Spanish speakers (also known as Heritage Speakers), who are preparing for written tests for professional purposes. Contact us for more information.
