Autumn Intensives

After an amazing first term we are ready to consolidate and practice everything we've learned.

Join us for Autumn Intensives from home, or come to our Melbourne CBD centre for two exciting weeks of study and practice.

We have something for every level!

Slang and Profanity!

Spanish speakers have invented many vibrant expressions to convey strong emotions and paint colourful pictures. Some come from religion or relate to food or body parts, while others are just plain funny or absurd.

Even if you don't plan on using slang or profanity, it sure is helpful to know what others are saying - especially in high-stress situations! It's also essential to know the strength and cultural differences of the words you're using. Google translate can't help you with this!

It's time to let loose some "tacos" (swear words)! Here is a small selection to whet your appetite our new Slang & Profanity Workshop!

New courses starting soon!

Australia's best Spanish language school, now teaching Face-to-Face, Online, and Hybrid. Learn Spanish socially - wherever you are.

Which Course or Workshop for my Level in the Summer Intensives?

¡Yupi! 2022 is the year of learning Spanish! (well, every year is ... but this year is THE year). And the Summer Intensives are an excellent way to get things started. If you're wondering whether to take a Conversation Course or are thinking about completing the next level up in two weeks, here's where to find out which options are right for you.

Summer Intensives! January 10 - 21!

Join us for our Summer Intensives (January 10-21) - an exciting two weeks of Spanish study in Northcote, Melbourne CBD or Online! This is a chance to boost your level in a way that would normally take months. Along with our first three Elementary levels (Elementary 1, 2, and 3), we offer FULL 15hr Conversation Courses where you can improve your speaking confidence!

Hints and Guidelines for Zoom classes!

We're really pleased to be able to keep our classes going during the COVID-19 period. Online (Zoom) classes are now the norm for the moment.

For the best online class experience, we've laid out a set of guidelines, from both the tech point of view - as well as best behaviours!

Here's what you think of our HYBRID classes!

Making the transition to HYRBID learning was an exciting prospect, but one we knew would be a challenge!

So how did we do? Read on to find out what our students think!

Winter Intensives! July 5 - 16
