We continue to make improvements each year, and the quality is still the best. ¡Muchas gracias!

There are some great apps including Spanish-English dictionaries and verb conjugation tools that can be handily accessed on a smartphone or tablet, as an aid during class. We've also added a flat-panel TV that allows us to use our network and online resources to make classes better than ever.
