Practice Your Spanish

More Alcohol, Better Spanyol! KDF’s Spanish Socials: Online Mingling to practice your Spanish. No matter what your level is, after a glass of wine, one beer or two, you’ll speak Spanish fluently.

No expectations of fluency. You can use your Spanish skills just at the level you are, and limit your conversation to the vocab you have. Think in Spanish! Be a kid again. Be an actor. Be someone else! Let someone else make the mistakes. Speak Spanish! Alcohol may help.

Be on the look out for our monthly Free Spanish Lessons. Yes! We love to give back to our community by organizing free events. Enjoy learning a new language for free while being someone else!

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 took classes with Franko back at USF as part of a conversational component with our Spanish classes that varied from 1 to 2 times per week.

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. I highly recommend Franko if you’re interested in learning Spanish and want to do so in a fun environment!

His experience in the field allows him to deliver quality results for seasoned Spanish speakers and novices alike. Along with delivering the material concisely and effusively, Franko is very friendly and available to provide learning opportunities outside of the classroom – even being a tour guide for some of his students on a trip to his native Peru. If you want a full Spanish language immersion – look no further.
