Overview

Since 2006. The school is located at Our Hotel Arca de Noe - 1 minute away from the main public dock in Santa Cruz la Laguna. Our teachers are highly qualified and flexible. Students can share different experiences with other teachers! It is possible. Our courses are individually or in a small group designed for everyone. All materials provided by the school are free. Our school includes free WIFI and a great place for coffee or just relax. Though we offer structure, we are always ready to accommodate student's particular needs and desires. Our teachers are ready to help if a student feels the need to spend more time on any phase of the learning process...

As an almost-beginner, my confidence in communicating in Spanish increased greatly after 5 half-days of instruction with Rolando. He was very supportive and encouraging and skilled at keeping the conversation going, even though I am an introvert whose default behavior is to smile and nod....More

Great little school in Santa Cruz. I stayed for a week with a lovely homestay family (with amazing food) and really enjoyed my time at the school. Professional instruction, good learning materials and a great view of the lake while you struggle through the subjunctive.
