Focus on developing conversational skills through professional guidance
- Our Spanish small group sessions in Maryland will focus on developing your conversational skills, speaking and listening, while still helping you improve in all other skills of the language: reading, writing, grammar and vocabulary acquisition.
- Our group sessions will also be professionally guided so that you don't just practice speaking Spanish with native speakers but have real improvement that will take you to the next levels.
You study with others at the same level
- Sharing classes with a small group of other highly motivated students is a great way to expand your knowledge of Spanish and expand your personal network.
- Practicing in a group matched by ability can be comforting and inspirational because you see other students working through the same language challenges you are tackling. It also helps everyone to learn from each other’s mistakes. Other non-native speakers understand what you are accomplishing and have lots of patience as you speak because, believe it or not, they’re gaining just as much from listening to you as you are from practicing speaking.
Meet face-to-face on two-hour sessions once a week for 8 weeks
- You will meet face-to-face with your other classmates and your tutor at a convenient cafe or at your tutor's home without needing to commute far away from where you live.
Your sessions will start at a specific date and time and will run for 8 weeks. You will be meeting once a week on a regular two-hour session each week, on either a weeknight or a weekend class if in person; some options during daytime on weekdays may also be available for those classes meeting over Skype video.
- To take most advantage of our Spanish program, you should reserve at least another 2 hours of your own time every week to study what is covered in each session, do your suggested at-home activities with the help of our online student center accessible 24x7 at no extra cost, and prepare for your following class.
- Despite having covered all the required material, you will still need to successfully pass the next belt level examination to be granted that next belt level.
- Small group Spanish classes in Maryland are custom-designed to quickly lead you to Spanish proficiency while sharing the fun - and cost - with few other students.
- You pay about half of the price of Tailored One-on-One Spanish Instruction, but still benefit from a closely focused learning experience.

- There are no hidden registration or application fees. You will only pay the price for the class you choose to join when you are ready to secure a spot.
