Start and Duration

Spanish group classes start every Monday during the whole year. Each of our 9 levels is limited to a maximum of five students. Our medium class size is 4 students. In the unlikely case where there is only one student at a level, the number of daily lessons is reduced from 4 to 3.

Our classes are quite intensive due to the limited number of students (maximum 5) per class and you will have some homework after school (depending on your dedication between 15 and 60 minutes).

Intensive course:

  • 20 group classes per week of 55 minutes each
  • Minimum course duration: 1 week
  • Schedule: 09:30 am to 01:30 pm or 2 pm to 6 pm

Superintensive course:

  • 20 group classes per week of 55 minutes each, plus 5 private lessons per week

Host family stays are the perfect way to truely learn and live the Porteño lifestyle.

The families that work with us are part of our program and know the way we work. They are prepared to receive our students and to introduce them to life in Montevideo.
