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.
