Teaching Method

We use two distinctive teaching Methods. One is for teaching the grammatical foundation of Spanish and the other is for developing conversational skills.

In the Warren Hardy Method (grammar foundation) you work with a partner of matched skill level in timed exercises called games. You never answer or perform in front of the class, only to your partner. During the games, you take turns delivering and receiving cues from your partner. You use flashcards and WorkBooks as learning tools during the games. The Warren Hardy Method uses a “cross-training” modality that develops both reading/writing and speaking/understanding skills simultaneously. Warren Hardy helps you set your classroom anxiety aside. You never answer or perform in front of the class, only to your partner.

  • Each level takes 2 ½ weeks to complete
  • Students study three days a week: M, W, F or T, Th, S from 9 to 12 am
  • There is a 15 minute coffee break at 10:30
  • There is approximately one hour of homework for each classroom hour. You can work at home with audios that are recorded directly from the WorkBooks

In the Skill Development Method you learn through activities both in the classroom and in the streets of San Miguel de Allende. Take the knowledge from the Foundation course and apply it to mastering life in San Miguel. Classroom activities include role plays and guided conversations from readings.

As you move through the Conversation courses you will learn to live in Mexico with confidence, tell stories, read and discuss Mexican history,legends, literature and politics. Register early, these classes fill up in advance.
