Because of its location, León benefits from being in a part of Spain where the Spanish spoken is the standard form, free from any influence of other languages.

We do not just pay lip-service to this, we really mean it. We take pride in knowing each and every one of our students personally. Our teachers are not just instructors, but also friends who take an interest in their students outside the classroom. This is possible thanks to the family-like ambiance in our Centre and our policy of small groups, avoiding the sort of overcrowding from which some other centres teaching Spanish can suffer.
