Practice Your Spanish

More Alcohol, Better Spanyol! Kasa De Franko’s Spanish Socials: Online Mingling while practicing your Spanish. No matter what your level is, after a glass of wine, one beer or two, we know you will speak Spanish fluently.

There is no expectation of fluency. You are welcome to use your Spanish skills just at the level you are, and limit your conversation to the vocab you have.

Think in Spanish! Speaking a new language is like being a kid again. It feels like being an actor. Let somebody else make the mistakes. Be somebody else: Speak Spanish! Alcohol may help.

Learn To Speak Spanish The Natural Way

At Kasa de Franko, we teach Spanish the way you learn your first language—by talking. This way,  KDF provides a similar environment to the one you had when learning to speak your native tongue.

Kasa De Franko, a school for Spanish and Language Studies in San Jose & the Bay Area, encourages students to embrace not just sentence structure, but a culture as well. KDF’s Tutors and Teachers have well-rounded academic and multicultural backgrounds, which allow them to immerse the students in a new culture in interesting and fun ways.

KDF offers Spanish courses for all levels of students. In KDF’s private and semi-private Spanish lessons, students get the instructors’ full attention. In KDF’s Spanish Small Group Lessons, students also get individualized attention from the teacher.

KDF creates a bridge of cultural understanding between the Spanish-speaking world and the English-speaking population: KDF also offers classes in ESL to those wanting to learn or improve their English.

Offering services in both English and Spanish, KDF can help small businesses in Silicon Valley increase their productivity by encouraging better understanding between personnel and with clients in both management and production areas.

For us at KDF, sharing the Spanish-speaking culture with our community is a privilege. Language is NOT just a communication tool. Language is also a thinking process- it is a way we see the world.

With KDF’s Spanish Instruction, students not only learn useful liguistic skills, but are also exposed to different worldviews and an enhanced way of thinking – “Don’t just SPEAK Spanish – THINK in Spanish!

Not only he is brilliant and articulate, but he also makes even difficult exercises fun and memorable. Franko provides almost miraculous motivation to complete homework and practice between lessons. He is also technically savvy, so studying over Skype is not a problem. He builds the student community by organizing events and parties where students of different levels can meet for practice and fun.

I have always been drawn to learning Spanish and had a passion to learn. Franko made learning easy and enjoyable. All of his classes were filled with valuable content that helped me to expand my understanding of the language. The biggest reason why I enjoyed it, was his ability to make his classes fun and engaging to all students.

If you want a full Spanish language immersion – look no further.
