Claudia Moreno and her team of experienced instructors help usher kids and adults into Spanish fluency with engaging lessons that foster excitement to learn a new language. Using the principle of linguistic immersion, teachers speak in Spanish as much as possible, training neophyte speakers to think in their new tongue and to avoid mental translations back into English. Kids classes keep youngsters fully absorbed in lessons with Spanish games and songs, and adult classes eschew overly formal studies of grammar and vocabulary to instead facilitate real-time practice of words and phrases typically used in normal conversation, such as “How are you?” and “How many potatoes can you eat in one sitting?”

Many enroll in Pro Edge's fitness classes for guided workouts in a supportive environment, and some complement their regimens with personal training sessions.
