At Siglo XXI we offer a wide range of studying possibilities. Whether you are looking to increase your vocabulary, improve your grammar skills and/or improve your speaking or writing abilities we have the right course for you. Our professors are experienced Spanish-native speakers professionals with years of experience teaching Spanish at US and International universities and private institutions.
At Siglo XXI we understand that people's motivation and reasons to learn a language are different, that is why we offer classes for (1) Spanish as a second language, (2) specialized classes for professionals that need Spanish for business, medicine or law, (3) classes for heritage speakers who want to feel more comfortable and polish their Spanish knowledge, and (4) classes directed to students who need to get ready for the AP exam or need help with their university midterms and finals.

Spanish for Heritage Speakers
The heritage speakers modality focuses on improving the written and spoken grammar and vocabulary of those people who grew up in a Spanish environment but have forgotten it, don't feel confident with their Spanish or tend to speak Spanglish and would like to polish their abilities and don't mix both languages.
These courses will get you ready to pass your AP exams, university or college mid-terms and finals and any other form or written evaluation. Classes would be conversational but leaning towards grammar. If your institution or job wants you to have a spoken exam we will accommodate to prepare you for your oral exam as well.
This modality is geared towards people who already have an advanced Spanish level but are afraid of losing it because of a lack of practice on a daily basis. In our conversation lab, we'll meet together to talk about current social, political and economic issues and we will assign the reading of novels that we will comment on class.and relate to current life.
