“I have been studying Spanish for several years in New York and I have had a number of different instructors in both private and group lessons. SpanishNYC is far and away the best Spanish language instruction I have received. The classes are tailored to your individual needs and are offered privately or in a small group setting at a location convenient to you. The instruction includes the right mix of grammar, vocabulary, reading and conversation and, perhaps most importantly, the instructors are excellent, personable and a lot of fun.”

Brooks Olbrys, Attorney at Law

Studying Spanish with SpanishNYC is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. No more rote memorization of vocabulary and wasted time spent falling asleep over grammar exercises. Time seems to vanish during our lessons and each one is an inspiration to find ways to use and increase my knowledge of Spanish.

Carol Martin, Artist

I have been studying Spanish with SpanishNYC for more than two years, and have gone from zero knowledge of Spanish to a point where I am reading Spanish literature comfortably with the help of a dictionary and carrying on conversations in Spanish with confidence. My private tutor has wonderful energy, and he is enormously resourceful in finding ways to engage students and getting them to speak and THINK in Spanish.

William S. Niederkorn, Culture News Department of The New York Times

My professors at SpanishNYC have the skills to address the individual needs and interests of each student in the group. They are able to create a fun and comfortable environment, which allows for natural conversation to develop. With positive support, the instructors have been so motivating that I find myself more confident to speak Spanish in my daily interactions with clients, colleagues, and people in the community.
