At don Quijote the student is the protagonist. In class, students learn Spanish with interesting concepts and real life situations. They speak and communicate in Spanish from the first moment regardless of their proficiency level.

I love working with don Quijote because by being at the school and planning my courses, I am able to establish a very personal relationship with my students. They are not numbers. I have the opportunity to get to know the students and build a curriculum based on what they already know, their needs and their interests. I love that at don Quijote we take a humanistic approach, and that it’s even more flexible and open. Small class sizes also allow us to create and customize our learning path day to day.
