we do the work for you!

What we do is evaluate and select the very best Spanish language schools in Latin America and Spain. It is our policy to personally visit and evaluate each school we represent. These schools are called our Affiliate Spanish Language Schools (ASLS).

In addition to a comprehensive tour of all campus facilities and in-depth interviews of key faculty and staff, Spanish Por Favor (SPF) actually takes the classes offered to ensure that the company's elevated standards are upheld. A formal review and evaluation of all homestay accomodations is also undertaken.

But learning a new language with SPF requires more than adequate educational and superior institutional facilities. Equally vital is the culture. To help make certain of a well-rounded cultural experience, SPF thoroughly evaluates the surrounding neighborhoods, local attractions, and essential supplementary opportunities.

We do all the work for you. You will save time and money by allowing Spanish Por favor to customize a language travel experience that meets your needs, personality, preferences, and budget. Whatever your language travel needs might be SPF has the perfect immersion experience for you.

Our evaluation includes a tour of the facility, the surrounding neighborhood and local attractions, as well as a formal assessment of the homestay accommodations.

1. Experience and expertise of Spanish language teachers.

2. Quality of Spanish language courses, content, and the diversity of specialty language courses.

3. Location, technology, aesthetics, space, facility, and overall impression/feel.

All three criteria must score in the 95th percentile, and have high overall standards to be selected as a Affiliate Spanish Language School.

Excursions and Cultural Experiences

The excursions are a great opportunity to practice the language you are learning, learn more about the city and culture, and to visit areas of the country that you may not discover on your own.

The evenings are shared with your host family and/or discovering the city's nightlife with your fellow students.

Each ASLS has a plethora of resources for day and weekend excursions. The staff love to share their knowledge and make reservations for these excursions and cultural experiences.

The majority of the Spanish language teachers have earned bachelors degrees and some hold Master's degrees in education. All teachers receive ongoing teacher training throughout the year.

All of the teachers have over two years experience teaching Spanish as a second language and most have over ten years experience.

Teachers may be rotated weekly, but students can choose to stay with the same teacher. Spanish Por Favor recommends that students change at least once every two to three weeks to increase their exposure to different teaching styles and teachers.

All Affiliate Spanish Language Schools teachers are formally reevaluated by the Spanish school every 12 months to ensure a superior level of teaching is maintained.

For example, Spanish for teens and kids, Law Enforcement, Flight Attendant, Artist, Health Professionals, Lawyers, Educators, and others.

We value the diverse offerings of language courses and cultural activities and work to meet the individual needs of all of our clients.
