Description of service

To attend Spanish Language classes in the USA you can expect to pay between $5-25 per hour depending on the school and if you want group or private lessons.

I attended classes taught by a native Spanish speaker who did not speak English to the class. We worked verbally and in written work (especially for homework) and stuck a balance between conversation and grammar.

Review of Service

I've never found a class that was the perfect mix of academic and practical, but this class came close. We focused on individual needs within the larger class group (of 6 students), so I was able to get the vocabulary I needed along with the grammar and conversation practice that we all needed together.


I highly recommend small group or partner classes over private lessons, the quality of the classes rarely diminishes if the teacher is skilled and there's more opportunity for real conversation. I prefer to see a private tutor only a few times a month to work on especially difficult concepts or to work hard before a test.

Always supplement paid classes with as many free or cheap activities as possible. Community events, movies, intercabios (language exchanges) where you teach English in exchange for the other language.

Look for native speakers, good written material, small classes, and a study environment that works for you.
