Dan Berges, a teacher with years of experience and a master's degree in education, founded Berges Institute LLC, a liberal arts educational center, in 2013. A native of Madrid, Dan coordinates Spanish classes at the school that are designed to enhance conversational skills. The school uses the Graf method, which focuses on building a fundamental understanding of the language rather than on rote memorization of a handle of phrases. In adult classes, the method also eschews learning games in favor of more intensive education that will help pupils actually express themselves. Those sessions are led by a staff made up largely of Spanish and Latin American expats, who put their native speaking abilities to use as teachers and translators.
