Better Business Bureau

If in need of an accredited Spanish language school, or in need of a course that gives you credits towards advanced education, we would encourage you to register for a Spanish class at a university or college. Most language institutes are not required to be accredited. Being accredited is expensive and does little for the school. Our Spanish language school, like most language schools, relies on its tutors expertise, proven methodologies and teaching material, and record of success.

If your organization requires that you enroll in an accredited school or that you earn credits, it may be worth requesting them to do an exception for you and rely on our track record of success in helping people achieve the level of speaking proficiency that they aim in a short period of time, all backed by our A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau and our 100% satisfaction policy.

Our Spanish language school unfortunately does not sponsor F1 students and/or do not issue I-20 (form to obtain a student visa).

If in need of a student visa, try contacting a community college or a university.

Our Spanish language school is based in Washington DC although it serves many cities in the US and abroad.

Our Spanish classes take place online, or in person, when possible, at either pre-selected cafes or tutor homes.

These Spanish classes can even take place at your home or office although prices for Spanish classes in these locations may be higher to absorb commuting costs.

Our main office located in the trendy and affluent neighborhood of Dupont Circle in Washington DC houses our administrative staff and is not open to the public.

All of our native Spanish tutors teach from their homes or at pre-selected public venues in the cities where they live.
