At Ñ de español, we consider private classes to the best way to learn a language. Why? The reason is very simple: in private classes, you speak a lot—much, much more than in a group class, where you always have to wait your turn and you don’t always receive the necessary corrections and recommendations to continue progressing. Since private classes are a space exclusively for you, the teacher has the possibility to better concentrate on your specific needs and interests.

Sometimes studying with friends or a partner can be a very good experience. For this reason, we also offer semi-private classes for pre-arranged groups (with a maximum of 5 people).

Since private classes are much more intense than group classes, we advise you not to take more than two hours per day, as it can be very difficult to stay attentive for longer than this. However, if you are thinking of doing an intensive program, we can organize extra classes on certain days of the week to reinforce conversation or to practice with a dynamic different from that of the main classes.

The price of the classes includes the study materials that you will use with your teacher.

At Ñ we think that every student is different and that his or her way of learning is also different, so we do not have a universal formula for approaching Spanish. The material in our classes is adapted to each student and we are constantly producing and recompiling new study resources. On the other hand, we know that language is everywhere, not only in books, and we try to make the most of our students’ experiences in their contact with native speakers.

We are a team of teachers, not an institute. For this reason, there are many places where we can hold classes. In general, we teach from our homes in the neighborhoods of Villa Crespo and Almagro. Sometimes we meet students in coffee shops or cultural centers in order to visit notable places in Buenos Aires and interact with the local environment. Also, we offer the possibility of having classes in your home or office, for a small additional charge.

Sometimes we learn Spanish simply because we like the language, or because the culture interests us. Sometimes, however, there are different motivations, related to studying or work. If you need to focus on the language to resolve problems related to your profession or your specific area, we can help you with classes specifically designed for you.

At Ñ we think that, by entering in contact with the history, art and culture of a region, you are able to relate much more intimately with its language.  So we have decided to offer classes on a variety of topics about Argentina and Latin America.  Here you can find information about some of the most important classes.

Peronism
(Intermediate and advanced levels; 2 classes, 2 hours in length; materials included) 
What is Peronism?  What did Perón and Evita mean for Argentina?  If you are interested in Argentine and Latin American politics, this is a part of history that you can never stop exploring.  The class covers the most interesting figures of Peronism, whose ideas and aesthetic represented a huge (and polemic) political change in our country.  In the class, we will analyze photographs, cinematic material and texts that are going to help you comprehend why Peronism is so important to understand our past and present.

History of the dictatorship in Argentina in the 1970s
(Intermediate and advanced levels; 2 classes, 2 hours in length; materials included)
In the 1970s, Latin America underwent a dark period that left deep impressions on our identity.  Analyzing this period thoroughly can help to better comprehend regional issues and current conflicts.  In this course we will analyze the “Process of National Reorganization” that was carried out from 1976 to 1983, its political methods, and its consequences.

Argentine Cinema
(Intermediate to advanced levels; 2 classes, 2 hours in length; materials included)
Have you seen any Argentine movies?  At Ñ de español we think that cinema is an excellent way to explore language, culture and history.  Argentina has a very diverse and interesting film industry.  During this course we will cover different eras, watching and analyzing fragments of our most important films and trying to recognize their historic and cultural importance.

Tango
(Intermediate and advanced levels; 2 classes, 2 hours in length + 1 optional singing class; materials included + selected Tango songs on CD or mp3)
Surely you are already aware of the dance, but it is only one of the many aspects of this fascinating musical genre.  Throughout this class, we will analyze the lyrics and poetry of Tango, which are full of sensual and mysterious characters.  We will also cover Tango’s historical development and the genre’s most important composers and musicians.

Guaraní Culture
(Intermediate and advanced levels; 2 classes, 2 hours in length; materials included + CD or mp3 of Guaraní music)
In Argentina, many different peoples, cultures and languages live together.  Some came from Europe, but other native cultures and were present long before the arrival of Europeans.  Among these is the Guaraní culture.  Predominant in northeastern Argentina, but also strongly present in Buenos Aires, it has a richness that is worth getting to know.  In this course we will focus on the language, the mythology and the music of the Guaraní. 

Mate Class
(Beginner, intermediate and advanced levels; 2 classes, 2 hours in length; materials included)
Surely you have already tried it or seen other people drinking it, and found yourself curious.  For us, mate is more than an infusion.  It is a ritual and a way of spending time with friends and family.  And, like any ritual, it has its legends, its rules and its specific meanings.  If you want to know more about mate, learn how to prepare it and share it, surely you will enjoy this Mate Class.

If you are here to dance Tango, then possibly you would be interested in a very practical part of the language: one that helps you better understand Tango classes and better interact at milongas.  That’s why we designed this special class for Tango dancers.
