When do I pay for your classes?
You don't have to pay for classes until you get here, check out our school and decide that you like the place.  We don't agree with the practice of requiring students to pay for classes in a school before they see it in person, in order to lock them into attending the school.  We want you to enjoy your time here with us, and we are confident that once you see the school, you will be ready to join in and Learn Spanish!
The obvious exception to this payment policy is that if you elect to use our Airport pickup or Housing services, payment will be due at the time of your arrival.

How do I get a seat reserved in your classes?
Easy, just use our course enrollment tool on the Courses and Pricing page, specifying the course type, length and start date that you want.

What is your refund policy?
Refunds for classes pre-paid at the time of enrollment but not yet realized, meaning the dates for these classes have not yet occurred, will be considered by the School Administration on a case by case basis. There are no refunds for classes paid for but not attended by the student.

We offer 6 levels of grammar and conversation classes, ranging from absolute beginner Spanish to Advanced-level grammar concepts and practices.
On your first day of class, we will consult with you on your previous Spanish studies, and ask you to take a short placement test. We'll use this information to help place you with students at the same level of Spanish as yourself.
Of course, after attending a class, you feel you need to be in a higher or lower level of class, we can usually make changes.
