Frequently Asked Questions

What is El Patio?

El Patio is a place of learning. Our classes are serious and fun – one of the reasons that El Patio is Melbourne's most popular Spanish language school.

The name 'El Patio' comes from the leafy and light-filled central courtyard in a traditional Spanish home. This inner courtyard is a place to get together, it's a focal point, a place of conversation and connection

El Patio is the home of the Spanish language in Melbourne, it's somewhere where you can take your first steps in learning the language and somewhere you can return to after travels.

If you've been learning for a while, El Patio is a place to continue to grow and to keep your Spanish language skills alive.

Welcome! We hope you enjoy your studies and that you make your class your own.
