Please be patient with us as we transition to our new website this weekend!
  Spanish  
 

Why study Spanish? To start off it is the second most common language in the United States and third most commonly spoken language in the world. Studying Spanish helps in the understanding of culture, expands career opportunities and improves your language skills.

 
Acquiring a foreign language is not easy but that is why at first we start slowly but as the course progresses, we learn more vocabulary and develop increasingly complex communication skills. I have high expectations for my students. I expect them to do their best at all times. Daily practice and study are the true road to success in our class.
 


“You have to begin to lose your memory, if only in bits and pieces, to realize that memory is what makes our lives. Life without memory is no life at all, just as an intelligence without the possibility of expression is not really an intelligence. Our memory is our coherence, our reason, our feeling, even our action. Without it, we are nothing.” 
- Luis Buñuel quotes (Spanish Film Director, 1900-1983)
