The sunny and wonderful weather all year round and the infinite choices of cultural and leisure activities to do!

I recommend visiting Spain because it's a small country but it has an incredible diversity in history, geography, culture and cuisine!

What Spanish film or musical artist do you recommend students watch or listen to?
There are many wonderful Spanish shows and movies on Netflix right now! I recommend watching 'La casa de papel' and 'Los amores perros.'

What most surprises your students about Spanish?
How different it is grammatically from English and how you really need to make a switch in your brain to understand some of its nuances.

What one thing would you like your students to know about you?
I would like my students to know that I am passionate about languages, second language acquisition and grammar and that I absolutely LOVE breaking down grammatical concepts to make them more accessible to my students.

The best part about living in Los Angeles is...
The diversity of its people and the many languages we hear everywhere in LA.

Recommend a place to visit where Spanish is the native language, and tell us why you like it.
I highly recommend San Fernando City in the San Fernando Valley. Also, Plaza Olvera or 'La Placita' in Downtown (Olvera Street). One can find the very first house, church and plaza founded in Los Angeles. It has a beautiful open-air market, which offers a variety of goods from different Hispanic cultures.

What Spanish film or musical artist do you recommend students watch or listen to?
a) Serious Spanish learners should watch 'Destinos,' which is a free Spanish course in a telenovela-type format. A video course developed by the University of Illinois. b) Also, as a general practice, I'd suggest any Netflix series in Spanish. 'La Casa de las Flores' is a good one to immerse oneself in the culture.

What most surprises your students about Spanish?
They are always mesmerized by the natural rhythm of the spoken Spanish language at its natural speed.

What one thing would you like your students to know about you?
One thing about my philosophy of education: My slogan 'Soy una persona de éxito,' means that I do believe every person is capable of learning Spanish and any other language. This motto I use it at the beginning of every class and I ask everyone to repeat it just prior to the beginning of every lesson.

Meeting so many different people from so many different places under consistently beautiful skies.

Recommend a place to visit where Spanish is the native language, and tell us why you like it.
Colombia, and not just because I was born there, but because the Spanish spoken there is very standard and clear, making it much easier for beginners to understand, especially in Bogota. Colombia is also very beautiful!

What Spanish film or musical artist do you recommend students watch or listen to?
'Maria Full of Grace.'

What most surprises your students about Spanish?
I would have to say that students are always commenting on how expressive Spanish is.

What one thing would you like your students to know about you?
I love teaching and always strive to present material in the simplest way possible.

Why Learn Spanish?

Learn [LANGUAGE] in Los Angeles

As the second most popular language in the U.S., Spanish can open doors both socially and professionally.

If you are considering learning or brushing up on your Spanish language skills, you have come to the right place. The Beverly Hills Lingual Institute has been teaching Spanish classes for more than twenty years, earning an esteemed reputation in Los Angeles.

Learning a language can change your life.

Knowing how to say at least a few words in another language will break the ice at any business meeting, and will certainly make your vacation more pleasant.

You may also want to get in touch with your heritage by learning some of the language that your ancestors spoke. Language is a particularly good bridge in this regard, as it can often be a guide to the ways in which different cultures express not only ideas, but emotions. By exposing you to every aspect of the human condition, language allows you to study the past, understand the present, and ponder the future.

The Beverly Hills Lingual Institute invites you to learn Spanish at our award-winning school, where we are proud to offer Spanish and more than 35 other languages.

Our language school hires and retains exceptional Spanish teachers, eager to share their knowledge and love for their native land and the Spanish language.

Our attractive location, on-site parking and schedule all combine to facilitate your Spanish courses.

Read what our students say about us - and come experience the best Spanish courses in Los Angeles.

Why a Classroom Instead of an On-Line Course?

Clearly there are those who have been successful using on-line courses.

However, we have found that most students who are serious about learning Spanish do better in a classroom setting with native-speaking teachers, using college-level texts.

The best way to discover a new language is to immerse yourself in it. Listen to the way it sounds, concentrate on the pronunciation, and look at how it is written. Above all, speak it. By listening and repeating, you'll enter a new world of ideas and peoples. A word spoken between ten and twenty times is remembered more readily than a word seeen fifty to one hundred times.

Being surrounded by others who are interested in the Spanish language and culture will reinforce your interest and motivation. Learning together, with shared commitment, creates a pleasant and exciting education experience. As we're often told, acquiring a language through immersion really does feel like magic!

Research has shown time and time again that motivation is a crucial part of learner progress, and that the establishment of clear goals from the beginning will contribute to your success.

  • Regularly scheduled Spanish classes

  • Accountability from your teacher and the class

  • Individual attention to your learning style

  • Interaction with teacher and classmates

  • Continuity of teaching method at all levels

  • Stay with your classmates as you progress

Some classes are also offered during the day. See the schedule for a complete list of all classes.

We all speak one.
Some of us speak several.
A few of us know dozens.

Languages are a staple of everyday life, a necessity for getting by in the world and communicating with each other. They can help you get jobs, help you enjoy another country and culture - and even get you out of trouble.

Choose a language and begin to enjoy the extraordinary benefit of being bilingual or multilingual.

Private Classes

Some students prefer private lessons instead of a scheduled class, or occasionally take private classes to augment their existing, scheduled group course. Private classes are tailored to specific needs, and can be useful if a student's language knowledge is uneven, if a more intensified study program is needed, or if scheduling and privacy is a concern.

With our large staff of native speakers, we can schedule private lessons in most languages.

Private lessons are available in packages of eight, 80-minute sessions; or, if you are enrolled in a group class, your private lesson can be scheduled individually.

Alternative Programs

The majority of our scheduled language classes are designed for adult students who want to learn another language. We also offer the following alternative programs.

English | Accent Reduction

Classes evaluate the student's problem areas and focus on exercises designed to target and remedy those areas. Our Accent Reduction course focuses on pronunciation, stress, enunciation, diction, tonality, musicality, syntax, and articulation, through vowel and consonant exercises, work chants, tongue twisters, and readings. Individual attention is given to each student's area of difficulty.

English | Native Speaker

These classes are for those who grew up speaking English but want to improve and refine their English. Designed to give you the critical edge in English communication, they target grammar, spelling, and pronunciation.

Little Linguals

Designed for children aged 6 – 11, our "Little Lingual" classes meet once a week during the afternoon for one hour. Class content includes Alphabet, Songs, Games, Practical Words and Phrases, and Basic Dialogue. Children aged 12 and above can join our regularly scheduled adult classes.

These exciting classes are geared to get an early start on language learning while helping children enjoy and appreciate a different culture. This is the best time for them to learn a foreign language. The younger the learner, the better they are at mimicking new sounds and adopting pronunciation. The brain is open to new sounds and patterns in preadolescence.

Young children have the luxury of taking in a new language naturally. A child's brain is like a sponge, soaking up new vocabulary, sentence structure, words stress, pronunciation, and everything that makes up language quickly, easily - and, most importantly, without explicit grammatical instruction.

When you're an adult, learning a new language takes a bit more effort!

Young children have time to learn through play-like activities. Language lessons can be informal. Children's minds are not yet cluttered with facts to be stored and tested. Before children become self-conscious, they can try out their newly acquired languages without fear of embarrassment.

Children who grow up learning about languages develop empathy for others and a curiosity for different cultures and ideas. They're better prepared to take their place in a global society. In later years, career opportunities increase for those with additional languages to offer.

Studies by Harvard University confirm that learning additional languages increases critical thinking skills, creativity and flexibility of the mind in young children. Moreover, pupils who learn a foreign language outscore their non-foreign-language-learning peers in standardized verbal and math tests, indicating that learning additional language is a cognitive - and not just linguistic - activity. The brain, like any muscle, functions better with exercise. Learning a language involves memorizing rules and vocabulary, which helps strengthen that mental muscle.

Travel Classes

Our Travel Classes are designed for those who are planning a trip and want to get more out of their travel experience. These classes are held twice a week for one month. They are language classes focused on travel conversation, pronunciation, and culture.

Translating and Interpreting

With a roster of over eighty native-speaking teachers in over 30 different languages, the Beverly Hills Lingual Institute has the expertise to address many translating and interpreting challenges. This is a highly customized service. Please contact us to discuss your translating or interpreting requirements.
