We teach our individual lessons according to each student's individual need.

A typical lesson for, for example, an intermediate or AP Spanish student may consist of a verbal warm-up, a discussion of previously assigned reading homework (usually a short story), a dive into a recent news article in Spanish, a short grammar lesson on a specific concept (such as imperfect subjunctive verbs), a back-and-forth reading of a Spanish dialogue, and a quick game at the end.
