Learn Spanish in Chicago. We offer

online and in-person classes.

Through April 20th, all Spanish classes are offered online. Our classes will switch

to in-person once it is safe to do so. Our on-line classes are hosted on video

and mimic the experience of being in-person. 

Latin American Language Center

At Latin American Language Center (LALC) we help you learn Spanish in a fun and engaging way.  We provide a range of learning options depending on your preferences: group, private, on-line, and in-person with flexible hours. Our methodology is to engage Spanish learners in conversation and practice on day 1. In addition to our course curriculum we offer weekly meetups where you can meet fellow Spanish learners and converse with native Spanish speakers. Think,  “BOYB online” and small group events hosted by a Spanish teacher. Our mission is community-first, meaning we offer you the tools and resources you need to practice and learn Spanish with native speakers and in real-world scenarios.

Private Spanish Lessons

Start speaking spanish faster

Lessons are 1 hour long with no minimum commitment, though we do offer a full 6-week private lesson curriculum. Students have access to our course curriculum but in a more personalized manner. You also have the opportunity to participate in social events to speak with real native Spanish speakers and meet Spanish learners at your level. Our Spanish private tutors are all Spanish native speakers from Latin America. 

Small Group Classes

Learn spanish with a group

Each level is 6 weeks long – once a week for 2 hours each. We offer flexible class schedules: morning, afternoon, and night. Spanish group classes offer an affordable social experience because you get to learn Spanish with other students at your level. With immersive group classes you will start speaking and hearing Spanish on day 1, no matter your level. We provide a free in-person evaluation to determine you Spanish proficiency before placing you in class.

Events & Conversation

Practice with native spanish speakers

We host events once a week as a part of the program so you can practice Spanish in the real world. We also partner with EF International, which teaches English to people from everywhere including Latin America. Their Spanish speakers help guide Spanish conversations and they have the opportunity practice English with our students. 

Spanish Courses For Business

We offer experiences for businesses interested in enabling their employees to speak Spanish. Business vocabulary is the easiest to learn. We help your employees gain command of the language and then apply the vocabulary in real business-world scenarios.

Online Spanish Intro Course

This online Spanish course is a good start for beginners. It takes self-discipline which the in-person classes give you. It doesn’t have the social component but if you are trying apps or courses online, this could be a good start for you.

Spanish/English Language Exchange

We host various events as part of the curriculum where you can meet native Spanish speakers that come to the US to learn English.  This event helps you to speak Spanish in a real conversation. We also host wine tasting events for our students in celebration of their progress.

Native Latin American Teachers

All of our teachers are native Latin Americans who live in Chicago. Spanish is their first language.

I have taken Spanish language classes with the Latin American Language Center for the past five months. The classes are centered around speaking skills first which in turn helps you learn reading and writing. Classes are fun and very conversational.

Highly recommended if you want to learn Spanish look no further. I had to learn Spanish for my business and I have tried learning online and at another place. This was the best experience and I can actually conduct my business in Spanish without a translator. The group spanish lesson felt very personable and answered any questions that I had without feeling embarrassed to ask. Highly recommended!

I signed up for classes at LALC and instantly started progressing in my Spanish. The classes are 100% speaking and listening so you get an immersive experience for 2 hours a week. They also tell you how to best practice during the week so you can continue to learn after class.
