Beginner Spanish

Courses are focused on the Spanish sound system, basic grammar, vocabulary and cultural elements. Although emphasis is on listening and speaking, basic reading and writing skills will be developed.




Latin Dance Classes

We also offer classes in a range of Dances, including, Salsa, Merengue,Bachata and Tango.


Classes for Children

There's no better time to learn a language than when you're a child. Spanish classes are available for children from 5 to 8 years.


Our  children's courses are coming to an end but we have new Winter 2014 classes for adults and Children. See the Winter 2014 Class Schedule for details of times.






Intermediate Spanish

Courses require knowledge of Spanish pronunciation, basic vocabulary and present tense grammar. More advanced grammar, vocabulary, and cultural elements will be taught in the development of listening, speaking, reading and writing skills.


Advanced Spanish

Courses require fluency in spoken and written Spanish. Advanced grammar and vocabulary will be presented while the course concentrates on polishing the student's oral and writing skills and developing a sense of style.
