I was in SMA for a short time and wanted to brush up on my Spansh skills. I was very pleased with the one on one instruction I received. Only wish I could've done more!

I attended AHA for a week with my daughter. It accepts credit card payment and offers hot coffee and purified water. In addition to grammar and conversation, the school offers history and other classes in Spanish, as well as dancing and cooking.
