Dear student,

Here's a little bit about who we are, and how our wonderful team can help you.

Our mission is to go beyond merely teaching a language. That is why we have created the Goya Method for learning languages through communication.

An innovative method where grammar explanations lead to oral practice immediately and in context.

We truly believe that building a student's self-confidence goes hand in hand with teaching them a language. Therefore, we set out to create our own syllabus that includes activities aimed to build up each person’s confidence and motivation. 

We help people gain enormous confidence speaking the foreign language in public and we make sure that they have one of the most remarkable experiences of their lives. 

We look forward to welcoming you.
