English schools in Latin America
The school was founded in 1980 by its present Swiss owner. It offers instruction in a wide range of modern languages such as Spanish, English, French, German, Portuguese, Mandarin and Russian. The Spanish language program is one of the finest offered in Chile. Many courses are offered on a year round basis. All of the Academy's language instructors are highly qualified and experienced native Spanish speakers and knowledgeable in a variety of language teaching methods. They are also well aware of the differences between Spanish spoken in Spain, Mexico and other countries in South America.
Private courses are geared towards one to three students and group courses for 4 to 8 students. They have been designed to totally immerse the student in the Spanish language and can also be tailored to suit any special business or professional needs.
Over the years students have come to study Spanish at the academy from many countries such as Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, China, Denmark, Egypt, France, Germany, Great Britain, Holland, Hungary, India, Italy, Korea, Lebanon, New Zealand, Norway, Switzerland, and Taiwan. They have all enjoyed and benefitted from our "Spanish-only" environment.
