There are many reasons why you may want to learn Spanish with us. Allow me to list you some:
To be respectful of their time, we prefer not to have our Spanish students be interrupted just to talk about us.
You may consider instead...
Yes! We are authorized to do business with the US Government. To verify, you can do a search on SAM with our Legal name: Growing Fields LLC or our DUNS number 625193433. Payment would be done through wire transfer directly to our registered checking account on SAM (System for Award Management) or through credit card if preferred.
If in need of an accredited Spanish language school we would encourage you to register for a Spanish class at a university or college. Most language institutes are not required to be accredited. Being accredited is expensive and does little for the school. Our Spanish language school, like most language schools, relies on its tutors expertise, proven methodologies and teaching material, and record of success.
If your organization requires that you enroll in an accredited school, it may be worth requesting them to do an exception for you and rely on our track record of success in helping people achieve the level of speaking proficiency that they aim in a short period of time, all backed by our 100% satisfaction policy.
Our Spanish language school unfortunately does not sponsor F1 students and/or do not issue I-20 (form to obtain a student visa).
If in need for a student visa, try contacting a community college or a university.
Our Spanish language school is based in Washington DC although it serves many cities in the US and abroad.
Our Spanish classes take place online, or in person, when possible, at either pre-selected cafes or tutor homes.
These Spanish classes can even take place at your home or office although prices for Spanish classes on these locations may be higher to absorb commuting costs.
Our main office located in the trendy and afluent neighborhood of Dupont Circle in Washington DC houses our administrative staff and is open to some Spanish classes.
All of our native Spanish tutors teach in the areas where they live.
If interested in getting to meet your native Spanish tutor ahead of time you may want to consider purchasing a 55-minute reduced cost sample session with that tutor for only $39.
You can also contact us by phone or email. We will be happy to answer any questions you may have regarding our Spanish language program, methods, tutors and teaching material.
