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.
