IMEC has excellent Spanish teachers whose skill matches that of the college professors I have had.

Samuel Collins

Vania is one of the Spanish teachers at IMEC whom I have been working with for a few months, and it has been very helpful for my Spanish. Vania has used a combination of conversation, grammar exercises, exploring current events, and culture to help me continue to improve my language skills. I have enjoyed the classes and I know that my Spanish is continuing to improve as I fix errors and learn new things. I would recommend Vania to anyone looking for a Spanish tutor whether someone has a beginner or advanced level of Spanish.
