Spanish Language Center’s trained instructors guide students of all skill levels through the Cortez Method during conversational group classes. The intensive weekend class meets for three-hour sessions on Saturday and Sunday; students in the four-week course huddle up once a week for a 90-minute session. Introductory courses lay out Spanish-language basics, such as grammar, vocabulary, and how to roll an r with the confidence of an archaeologist playing Operation. The Beginners Level course delves into verb tenses and conjugations, Intermediate Level classes cover pronouns and compare preterit and imperfect tenses, and Advanced Level pupils or androids with updated software can bolster knowledge of commands and the subjunctive tense.

Each class hosts an average of 6–12 students and, like a sturdy soapbox, includes ample opportunity to practice speaking skills. In addition to providing all necessary materials, staff members equip participants with access to an online class system full of updates and information. Customers registered for classes other than the introductory level must undergo an instructor assessment to determine proper placement.

Creator of the conversational Cortez Method of Spanish lessons, Juan Guillermo Cortez started the Spanish Language Center in 2001 to expand the lessons he learned as a private Spanish teacher. With a stable of trained instructors, the school guides students of all skill levels through the intricacies of Spanish speaking during conversational group classes. Conversation-focused classes range from introductory courses that lay out Spanish-language basics, such as grammar and how to roll an r with the confidence of an archaeologist playing Operation, to advanced-level lessons on commands and the subjunctive tense. Each class hosts an average of 6–12 students and, like a sturdy soapbox, includes ample opportunity to practice speaking skills. In addition to providing all necessary materials, teachers also unlock access to an online class system full of updates and information.

Thanks! Good classes and instructors

Learning Spanish, more specifically being able to speak Spanish, has been on my wish list for many years. When I saw the Groupon offer in the fall, I made my move...and could not be happier. I have tried other programs in the past and have found the Cortez Method to be the best by far. Each lesson draws on material from the previous chapters (and previous sessions). The vocabulary is constantly reinforced and concepts are reviewed often. There really is a "method" and I find that things click into place as I move through the assignments. The order of the lessons is done in a way that as a class we were albe to speak in complete sentences and ask and answer basic questions in no time. The homework assignments (exercises in the downloadable text book) are very easy to complete in writing but are quite challenging to answer in class without looking! Being in a small group setting and working with our wonderful instructor Gladys, has helped me tremendously. Whether you are looking for a refresher or starting with no prior knowledge, I highly recommend the program.
