The teachers at the Spanish Institute do more than teach a language; they immerse students in cultures that they’ve experienced firsthand. In addition to their qualifications as educators, all instructors hail from Latin American countries. They mine their life experiences to share the Spanish language in a natural style, which helps students learn vocabulary and grammar through interactive speaking and listening exercises. Their adult courses range from beginner traveler classes designed to impart basic communication skills to intensive studies of the language aimed at fluent conversation. For kids, teachers tone down the classroom vibe with fun games, stories, and songs that impart new knowledge more subtly than pop-up periodic tables.
