Who is Kasa De Franko?

Kasa de Franko (KDF), a well-established language institution located in the Silicon Valley, provides instruction in Spanish and other languages through both online and in-person formats. Our offerings encompass private and group lessons tailored for individuals, corporations, and students of all age groups.

Communicative Approach

At KDF, we place a strong emphasis on the Communicative Approach, fostering Spanish language acquisition within real-life contexts. Our lessons are centered around conversation, as we believe in the significance of conveying messages that resonate with the learner.

Rather than relying solely on repetition and memorization, meaningful dialogues are essential for students to connect the language skills they acquire in class to their everyday lives. Our focus is on teaching the transfer of ideas rather than mere translation of words.

Communicative & Cultural Approach!

The Kasa de Franko Method seamlessly integrates the communicative approach with a cultural perspective, providing students with an immersive experience in La Cultura while internalizing grammar structures.

We also offer non-immersive programs for students who prefer learning the basics in English before jumping into any of our immersive programs.

Our passion!

Teaching is our passion. We go beyond imparting language skills; we share our culture with you!  In essence, KDF aims to cultivate not only linguistic skills but also critical thinking, cultural awareness and independent expression in Spanish, enriching the overall language-learning experience for their students.

Our Motto!

Think in Spanish! Don’t just speak Spanish!
