Spring Conversation Courses!

In the 2-week break between Terms (Sept 23 - Oct 5) we're offering Conversation courses at both Melbourne and Northcote!​ Students will have a choice between a short (4.5-hr) structured course or a longer (7.5-hr) course that has both structure and time for open conversation practice.

Students say ...

  • Hace cuatro anos desde que empecé a estudiar español en el Patio. En este tiempo, he disfrutado mucho las clases y tambien he aprendido mucho. Mis favoritos cosas de las clases son las profesoras que me han ensenado y los amigos que hice. Ha sido una experienca bueniiiisima! - Kristy Underwood

  • After becoming frustrated at my lack of progress with their competitor, I recieved a recommendation for the classes at El Patio. Since enrolling I have never looked back, the teachers are knowledgeable, the students are great, the classes are fun, and my Spanish quickly improved enough to converse confidently with the locals when I arrived in Latin America - Angela Hayhurst

  • I am heading to South America … where I'll travel/volunteer for 6 months, and I'm going with a fantastic base of Spanish to build on. Thanks so much for having me in the Northcote Saturday morning classes, I've really enjoyed it. If time permits, I hope I may be able to continue some study with El Patio upon my return next year, you guys are fantastic :) - Isabelle Harding
