Why learn Spanish from Conversa?
Learning Spanish can open many doors in a person's life. At Conversa, We introduce students to alternative ways of expressing themselves and communicate with other Spanish speakers, especially when traveling to Latin-American countries. Knowing a second language can also give people a competitive boost in the workforce 👍🏽
Research suggests that studying a second language for a number of years may contribute to higher SAT scores. Studies show that regardless of a student's academic level, students who learn a foreign language outperform those who do not receive such instruction 🤓
Bilingualism and multilingualism have many benefits to society. Americans who are fluent in more than one language can broaden their political and security interests and work to promote an understanding of cultural diversity 😎

Stoneybrook Christian School has been very pleased with Conversa Spanish for the last five years. In the past, it has been a challenge for our school to find a quality program with an excellent instructor at an affordable price, all of which we have discovered with Conversa.
The administrators of Conversa are responsive and great to work with, and Señor Salinas is extremely effective with our students, first through sixth grade. He maintains control of the class, provides a high level of instruction, and the kids have fun... a perfect combination for our Spanish enrichment classes. Gracias, Conversa!

Tustin Memorial Academy in the TUSD has worked hard over the years to offer its students a wide selection of after-school enrichment programs. In partnership with Conversa, TMA, arguably, has the largest and most extensive after-school foreign language program in Orange County, possibly in the state.
Conversa offers 5 different levels of Spanish (Kinder, Beginning, Continuing, Intermediate & Advanced), reaching 80 – 100 students per year on the TMA campus! This is absolutely amazing for a public elementary school!

As an International Baccalaureate World School, we are mandated to provide second language instruction for all students in grades Kindergarten through 8th. Conversa stepped in and has been our partner on this requirement for over five years.
Their terrific staff have worked hard to create a spiraling scope and sequence incorporating our Primary Years Program IB units, enabling K-5th grade students to learn foundational Spanish that builds upon skills and concepts over their six elementary years. We are very grateful for Conversa’s professionalism and commitment to second language instruction.
