we are the school what were you looking for,
in which you will finally speak a second language

Perhaps you studied Spanish in high school and never really learned to speak it. Or maybe you've been using a program or mobile app to learn Spanish, but you still don't feel confident to speak fluently.

Something is wrong and you know it. 

That's where we come in!

We have created a method based on the conversation and the learning process, Not just the content itself.

No more memorized phrases or conjugation lists.

How? We use conversactions short and in real time to teach the new language. 

Just like when you learned your mother tongue, you used parts of real conversations with real speakers. We use this same method to teach you the new language – once and for all.
