Our beginner class is best suited for those who are brand new to Spanish, or who have studied in the past but need to brush up their skills. 

By completing this course, you will learn how to introduce yourself, describe your family and friends, ask for directions, express your likes and dislikes, and even confidently order at your favorite Spanish restaurant.


How does it work?

Our classes are uniquely designed to be both educational and social.  We’ve developed the perfect balance of in-class lessons and group events to create a fun and immersive learning experience.

At City Speakeasy, we believe that conversation is the key to success. Our welcoming teachers will encourage the group to converse in Spanish within the first five minutes of class.

To ensure our students get direct and dedicated instruction from our teachers, we keep our average class size under 10 students.
