In this free class we will charlar (chat), hacer amigos (make friends) and build up our confianza (confidence) practicing conversational Spanish. The class will have a relaxed, comfortable and organic flow, while still having some structured activities that help to promote conversation and reinforce choice Spanish grammar and vocabulary. We will also explore the vibrant culture of the Spanish speaking world. The best way to learn is to do it, some come join us and charlamos! All ages, younger than 13 with parent, please reserve your spot.

What is your passion?
"I am passionate about new experiences. Opportunities that force us out of our comfort zone allow us to recognize and explore aspects of ourselves we might not have previously realized. This is why I adore travel and adventure; along with other places and cultures I am also getting to know myself, my fears, insecurities, and resilience through the exploration of the new and unknown."
