Our school's student-centered teaching approach provides many benefits:
- Course material centered around a quick and clear understanding of Spanish grammar patterns, provided at no additional charge.
- Our institute has a first-class teaching staff covering different aspects of the language, including translators, Spanish teachers, literature and linguistic teachers, etc.
- As a part of our emphasis on oral practice, we offer additional hours of Spanish conversation with teachers other than the class professor, allowing students to use what they have learned in class in a more casual setting.
- Our teaching staff is proficient in a wide range of languages, including English, French, Russian, German, Portuguese, Japanese, and Mandarin Chinese.
- Group classes have a maximum of 3 students per class, making our courses much more personalized than those offered elsewhere.
- Exercises focused on everyday life experiences that have been created by our professional staff.
- A variety of audio-visual materials designed around specific subjects, including history, culture, daily interactions, etc.
- Competency tests at the beginning of each class program designed to determine each student's skill level. This allows us to create a program tailor-made to each student, maximizing their learning opportunity.
- Flexible class times that can be modified to fit each students schedule.
- Within Santiago, we offer housing with Chilean families at convenient prices. This allows students to accelerate their learning by fully immersing themselves in a Spanish speaking home.
- Students may choose specific topics or subjects on which to focus their course program.
- Our teachers are able to travel to the students home or office when needed.

Within the 100 hours of lesson time, you will progress from a Basic level, to an Advanced level. Each of the three levels, Basic, Intermediate, and Advanced taking approximately 30 hours. Each level will be divided into four sections covering grammar, conversation, vocabulary and some essential survival skills!

- Español Fácil Nivel 1(1st level): Studying from this first book you will cover basic forms of grammar, including the present, present continuous, and present perfect tenses. In this level you will also learn the “going to” future, basic idiomatic expressions and useful verb combinations. A large part of this level is also concerned with basic conversation and oral practice.

- Español Fácil Nivel 2(2nd Level): At this level you will begin to move onto harder grammar concepts such as the past simple, past imperfect, and past perfect tenses. In addition we teach you how to begin using the future, and the conditional tenses. Again conversation and listening exercises, both written and oral are an important part of this level.

- Español Fácil Nivel 3(3rd Level): Finally at the 3rd level we will spend time on reviewing all that has gone before and putting into speaking, and written practice everything you have already learnt. You will also learn the subjunctive tense. Throughout the course students are taught using a unique technique of color coordinated flashcards which allow conversation and memory to be stimulated from the very first five minutes!

Faculty Information:
Our groups are a maximum of 5 students and the sessions last 45 minutes (group classes are given in the morning and individual clsses are available morning, afternoon or evening). For students who want to improve faster, we recommend individual lessons. During the free optional assessment workshops the students study with a different teacher who can analize the students needs and reinforce weak points. We have three levels:
- Level 1, for beginners: On this level you will familiarize yourselves with the following grammar constructions: I play, I am playing, I am going to play, I have played, I have to play, I like to play, I want to play, I can play and I would like to play. It takes 40 to 55 sessions.

- Level 2, for intermediate students: For students who have already studied the beginner constructions and feel confident using them orally. On this level we include the past tenses: I played, I was playing and I had played. We also study the future and the conditional tenses. It takes 35 to 50 sessions.

- Level 3, for advanced students: This level deals with the subjunctive. It gives the students the confidence to express their emotions, wishes, feelings, desires, hopes and commands in Spanish. It takes 50 to 65 sessions.
