• About Us

    Every year, more than 2000 students take our Undergraduate Courses. We offer elementary, intermediate and advanced language classes, as well as intensive language courses, medical Spanish, Spanish and Portuguese languages online. Besides Spanish and Portuguese, we offer Catalan and  Quechua. We believe that the study and appreciation of the diverse and dynamic cultural heritage of the hundreds of millions of Spanish and Portuguese speakers across the world has intrinsic value and is central to a comprehensive liberal arts education.
