What a BLAST!!! Nothing compares to learning from a native speaker and a brilliant one at that.


– Karen Mercy
I was born in Mexico, but grew up in California speaking Spanish with family and friends. Taking classes with Franko has helped me to improve my Spanish as a native speaker.


– Juana Becerra
Due to Franko’s great style and approach, our son now loves learning Spanish.

Franko’s holistic approach (working with grammar, vocabulary, dialog, and pronunciation) ensures that our son is immersed in and really learns the language. Our son finds Skyping with Franko to be very effective.

I took several levels of Spanish with Franko and highly recommend his courses to anyone who is interested in learning the nuances of this beautiful language.

His classes will not only allow you to become proficient in Spanish, but also develop a much deeper appreciation for Latin American cultures. Franko makes learning easy, relevant and fun. He is really passionate about teaching and frequently adjusts the curriculum based on the specific needs of his students. Are you ready to sign up?

– Vera Fainshtein
Franko’s lesson plans are well designed and include material that makes learning fun.

He makes you feel very comfortable and progresses through the language in a very logical way. I highly recommend Franko for individual and group lessons. He will help you learn Spanish with correct pronunciations so you will sound like a native speaker.

– Rachel Young
I studied with Franko in 3 groups as well as in private lessons. Franko is a very cool teacher.

Not only he is brilliant and articulate, he 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 student community by organizing events and parties where students of different levels can meet for practice and fun.

- Liza Khodel
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!
