Our courses are oriented to those students who not only want to learn Spanish but also want to live it. Classes are combined with varied social and cultural activities that allow a complete immersion in the South American way of life.
ABLE SPANISH has combined efforts to offer the most novel and effective Spanish Courses and the most efficient professional internship programs. This is thanks to a real work project previously developed in each one of the companies that integrate this program of international learning.
On a clear day, fresh after winter showers, Santiago basks in one of the most spectacular settings of any city in the world. A glance through the downtown blocks reveals a mighty circle of mountains - the snowcapped Andean peaks to the east, and a smaller coastal range to the west - that frames the Chilean capital..
With the experience of over 15 years in teaching languages, we have developed innovative programs with a Super Holistic learning method that allows the student to know the language from inside, adapting the contents to his/her own speed of learning and needs. The programs main characteristic is it's flexibility, and this is the basis of its effectiveness and speed to assimilate the new language in a long lasting way.
Our organization is like a family that offers each student an integrating frame that facilitates immersion in the local society. Because our students are part of this family, and because the family of ABLE SPANISH is the base of our success, we invite you to take part of this adventure of learning Spanish as a South American.
