We thank all our students for being so wonderful and the best!!! Judy Downing Roxanne Lapointe
"My two-week intensive at The Spanish Institute in Carlsbad went above
and beyond my expectations. I feel I could write this review in Spanish
now, but I want future students to read it! The instruction was
individualized, flexible, and varied. Monica the professor used the
hours to the max, allowed for creativity and individual purposes and
needs, and encouraged us with much grace and patience. I would return
for more in a heartbeat. Mil gracias!"
Its been 2 months since I started to attend Monica's spanish lessons.
She is an expert teacher and I like the small class size. Good
conversation and good vibes but she keeps us to the point. She is
patient in keeping the conversation 100% in spanish even though my
vocabulary is limited. I highly recommend Monica when considering a
class at the spanish institute.
After twelve weeks of group lessons in Monica's class, my understanding
and speaking of Spanish has greatly improved. She encouraged
conversation and corrected misused words and phrases, including
explanations about slang expressions. Her teaching style is fun and
engaging and I would highly recommend the Spanish Institute for anyone
who wants to learn the language.JacquieDaveMy wife and I had a great experience at the Spanish Institute. Our teacher was great! We highly recommend The Spanish Institute. Dave & Jacquiehiba agha
I have been wanting to learn Spanish for a while now and I found the
Spanish Institute in my neighborhood so thought I would give it a go. It
was a fantastic experience. I had Irma and she threw us right
into the Spanish speaking world. I took the six week course and I could
see improvements from week to week. We had some homework to do at home
and some materials for review. I highly recommend this class at the
Spanish Institute if you want to start learning or improve your Spanish.
I have taken Spanish
on and off over the past 10 years using a combination of self-teaching
with books and CD's, immersion classes and travel in Spanish speaking
countries, and most recently at the Spanish Institute in Carlsbad. I
have had 2 previous instructors at the intermediate/advanced level at
the institute: one focused mostly on grammar and de-emphasized
conversation, and the other did the opposite. My most recent teacher,
whom I have now had for 5 weekly 1.5 hour evening lessons, is Irma. Irma provides a refreshing blend of conversation, exercises in
speaking and pronunciation, listening comprehension and reading, and
grammar. She also adds in interesting cultural information and regional
linguistic differences about the language. She mixes things up well and
makes the class fun, and she is an advocate of getting students to relax
and just speak the language using the tools they know, rather than
memorizing words and grammar and doing endless drills in the more
traditional manner of language instruction. At first I was concerned
that I wasn't learning at the level of my last class, but in the past
couple of sessions the pace has been picked up. Irma is a really great
have been taking Spanish at the Spanish Institute for the past four
weeks. I began in March of 2015. In general, it has been a great
experience; and my teacher Irma, is very good at making the lessons fun
and interesting. Given more time, I would love to join future classes.
After a week of Spanish Immersion at The Spanish Institute, I was able
to interview for a job which required proficiency in Spanish and I got
the job! I came into the week without knowing much Spanish but needing
to learn for work. I thought it was a long shot that I would be able to
speak well after a week, but the instructors made it a reality! The best
part was that I had a wonderful time while learning. The instructors
are dynamic, skilled, attuned and incredibly supportive. Their
commitment to their students is well evident. My friends were shocked
and impressed by how much I had improved in just a week. If you want a
success story with regard to learning Spanish, go to the Spanish
Institute. You can absolutely learn Spanish without leaving the country. Joanne Del Greco
I recently completed a one-week immersion program with The Spanish
Institute in Carlsbad and my entire experience was fantastic. I took a
basic-level program with Monica as part of my preparation for traveling
to Spain to walk the Camino de Santiago and it was mi buena suerte that
Monica has walked the Camino twice. Apart from that, she quickly figured
out my strengths and (many) weaknesses with Spanish and skillfully
adapted her vocabulary to match and stretch my level. I progressed as
much in a week as in a full semester of community college classes. I’m
confident that I will be able to understand and communicate the basics.
In addition, Carlsbad was a wonderful setting right on the Pacific Ocean
for my immersion week. Everything I needed was a short walk from my
hotel, including the Institute. While my family and friends back home in
Ohio were shoveling snow and battling single-digit weather, I was
practicing my verb conjugations while walking along the beach. Joel Allen
My wife and I have spent two weeks at the Spanish Institute and
although it is a long haul for us (coming from Tucson) it has been a
good experience. We both speak the language reasonably well but are not
completely fluent and our Instructor Monica quickly honed in on our
weaknesses. With drills mixed with conversation and continued study
outside of class we have definitely made some progress. We hope we can
make it make back for more.
I've been taking Spanish group classes since September 2012. Our
instructor has a great way of incorporating grammar, vocabulary, and
encourage conversation so that it feels fresh and fun. She is the best
teacher I have ever had and I have tried several schools in San Diego.
She identified the areas of my weaknesses and focused on those.
Overall I would rate my experience as Superior. The instructor was the
nicest teacher I ever had. She was caring and and attentive to meet each
students' needs. This has been an incredible experience as I am now
able to communicate in Spanish and it is a great feeling to be able to
understand and help others, language used to be a barrier now is a tool.
This is the best decision I have ever made in a very long time.
I will be continuing to learn Spanish so if you decide to join the
classes I will see you there.Jan Elisa Mosca
To whom it may concern, " The Spanish Institute, Carlsbad, CA"
I recently participated in the six week beginner Spanish class in
Carlsbad. Andrea B. is a creative and talented teacher and leader
for this type of instruction. The students had little or no Spanish
speaking background but she was able to adapt the lessons to include
participation by everyone. Andrea has a charming personality and in
conclusion, I am more motivated to continue to improve my ability to
speak Spanish. The text book used is a useful reference for basic
grammar and language.

I took a one week immersion course at the Spanish
Institute to improve my Spanish grammar and speaking ability. Lourdes Brewer was my teacher. I have taken many different courses on the
internet, and also attended many meet-up groups where people wanted to
maintain their Spanish speaking ability. Yet, I was stuck on a plateau.
instructor, Lourdes Brewer, was the best I have ever had. She
identified the areas of my weaknesses and focused on those. She was a
very effective teacher in that she made me think
and arrive at the correct answer on my own instead of just giving the
answer to me. She also has a delightful sense of humor and made the
class fun, especially because she would discuss the phrases used by
native speakers. She has a great format as she
would alternate between grammar, speaking, and comprehension exercises.
will be going to Puerto Vallarta soon for a vacation and am excited
about using the new expressions and vocabulary I have learned. I plan on
taking another immersion course with Lourdes
to advance more as my goal is to be fluent.
been taking Spanish lessons from Lourdes since October 2013. She has a
great way of incorporating grammar, vocabulary, and encouraging
conversation so that it feels fresh and fun. I enjoy learning all the
nuances of Spanish, particularly phrases that native speakers use
frequently. I would recommend Lourdes to anyone who is ready to start
experience at the Spanish Institute with Lourdes has been great. I've
been enjoying this course very much and gaining more enthusiasm to learn
The course material are easy to follow, yet very efficient
to learn. I will be continuing to learn Spanish with Lourdes as I
I want to thank the institute and Lourdes for this great class and staff you have.
was very good to study spanish intensively with Lourdes. I believe I
established my foundation of Spanish learning skills. I set my target
for Nov Spanish certificate test in Japan.
I will continue studying Spanish, I would like to travel to Spanish countries.
I enrolled in a two week total
immersion course with Lourdes Brewer. I had used the pimsleur Spanish
program for approximately one year. The two week course I had with
Lourdes taught me more than the one year of pimsleur. Pimsleur was
great for vocabulary but would make changes with conjugation without
teaching the reason. Lourdes helped teach me the reason for changes in
Spanish words and helped me learn the rules necessary to continue to
successfully learn Spanish. Lourdes helped customize a program for me
based on my employment and the use of Spanish related to my occupation.
I highly recommend Lourdes and The Spanish Institute.
Thank you Lourdes and The Spanish Institute
Dear Spanish Institute,
months ago in April I visited my brother in San Diego. Since I'm
studying Spanish here in New York I thought I would check and see if
there was a Spanish conversation class that I could take while in
California. I found the Spanish Institute on line and was fortunate to
take a two hour class one day with Lourdes Brewer. My only regret is
that it was only one two hour class.
Lourdes wrote to me to
ascertain my competency in Spanish. I responded in my best Spanglish, I
mean Spanish. I received a response in Spanish in which Lourdes
suggested some areas where we might work. I'm a retired teacher and
have to say that I was so impressed. In the class Lourdes brought in
some worksheets in areas were I needed help. We spent much time
conversing while covering the areas that were discussed. She was
incredibly organized and well-prepared and in a very non-threatening way
directed the session which really was helpful to me. We have exchanged
notes in Spanish since that session and I hope that we can work
together again when I'm in San Diego.
Obviously, I think she is gifted teacher.
Here is a review of Lourdes B.
have been attending a one and a half hour a week beginning (beg.-mid
level, not total beginner) Spanish class taught by Lourdes Brewer for
the past five months. Lourdes is an excellent teacher and is patient,
kind and fun to be with.
She encourages us and compliments us,
making it enjoyable and making us want to do learn more each week.
Lourdes writes down our responses, making the learning visual as well as
auditory. She individualizes instruction so each person is challenged
at his/her own level. The instruction is clear, purposeful, well laid
out and planned. Best of all, Lourdes personalizes the instruction
making it pertinent to our daily lives.
Her assignments help us
share, in Spanish, things that matter to us. For example, she asks us
to describe our own homes (to teach directions and names of objects),
buildings in our hometowns (to work on dates and descriptions) etc. In
conversation, we learn expressions and ways to relate to others so when
we travel we will be able to converse.
There is a nice blend of
reading, writing, conversation using texts and technology (email,
computer videos, apps etc.). The variety of modalities help accommodate
our different learning styles.
Lourdes is very nice to each of
us, in the class. She has created a warm environment for each of us to
learn and progress. I really enjoy going to the class and doing the
assignments at home and am grateful to have such a good teacher.
Also a teacher (K-6)
is a great teacher.Very patient and always catches even small mistakes
(pronunciations, wrong word, wrong gender etc.) and then politely
corrects you. Never overly critical though.
She teaches Spanish
from a worldwide prospective and does not focus on just Mexican Spanish.
This is important to me as I will be traveling to South and Central
America and possible Spain and I need to know/understand these nuances.
She avoids “Spanglish” which is important because that is something I
have been trying to eliminate from the get go. When I get to my various
destinations people will be speaking “pure” Spanish and will not
understand “Spanglish”. The fact that this teacher eliminates Spanglish
while living this close to the U.S./Mexico border is very impressive.
Lourdes has me write down various phrases that I want to learn which is great for me and gives a personal touch.
I highly recommended,
Ocean a Beach, CA
took the two week immersion course at the Spanish Institute to improve
my Spanish for my work. My instructor, Lourdes Brewer, was a fluent
Spanish speaker who worked with me to personalize my course to ensure it
met my needs. She was a very effective teacher, always taking the time
to ensure that I was truly making progress every day. She has an
organized and efficient teaching method in which she alternates hourly
lessons between grammar subjects, vocabulary, and practicing
conversational skills. Overall I was very happy with my time at the
Spanish Institute, and with Lourdes' classes in particular. - Trevor"
Hi Spanish Institute,
wanted to take a second and let you know how much I am enjoying working
with Analhi from Mexico. She is doing a great job helping me to learn
Spanish and I look forward to our sessions each week. I highly recommend
her to any of your future students.
Thank you for providing such a high caliber teacher!
Laura Hinchey, Online Classes
had a week of private lessons, four with Anamaria and one with
Monica, and found that my Spanish comprehension and speaking
improved tremendously. I had felt "stuck" with a very low level of
fluency and I now feel like I've been jump-started into moving toward
becoming truly fluent (someday!). The teaching of both of my profesoras
was excellent, very individually tailored and effective. Both are
wonderful people, very friendly, lively and engaging. Thanks so much for
a great week of Spanish!
Thank you for
referring one of your tutors to us. Always reliable and punctual, he
worked patiently with my son on his Spanish. Not only was his knowledge
of the subject matter excellent, he was able to explain concepts in a
way that my son could easily grasp. I would enthusiastically recommend
The Spanish Institute to anybody. Mrs. Brunner.Very friendly
tutor, very clear and patient explanations. I am very happy with the
results, my son is now back on track and his grades are great. Thank you
Spanish Institute. Mike Anderson.
I just wanted to let you know that my last trip to Central
America was very successful. I was able to speak, read, and comprehend
Spanish for the first time. It made me feel good and also made the
people that I was dealing with appreciate the effort that I have been
making to learn their language. I don't know it all yet, but they really
did like the effort that I was making.
Thanks to you, I am learning
Spanish in a comfortable environment at my own pace. I have never
studied Spanish in school before so I was very apprehensive to try. I am
glad that I started and I think that I have improved greatly.
again for having the patience to help me on the road to achieving my
goal. I hope to be working with you until I am a qualified fluent
Spanish speaker! Thanks, Bruce Endres
My daughter has learned a lot of
reading, writing and algo spelling in Spanish. I am very pleased with
her accomplishments and her desire to learn. We hope parents will let
their children have the opportunity and let them spread their wings in
the classroom. Marina B.
is a great teacher with infinite patience and a genuine sense of humor.
She has been instrumental to the improvement I have made in both
speaking and understanding Spanish. She is also a kind and caring
person who has been willing to talk to me as a friend." West Marrin
es Roberto Mónaco y estoy estudiando con la maestra Mónica desde hace 5
meses, mi español ha mejorado un 300% por ciento. Ahora puedo hablar y
también hacer seminarios en español. ¡El Spanish Institute es el mejor!
Actualmente estoy tomando las clases vía skype y estoy aprendiendo
mucho. ¡Yo recomiendo tomar clases con el Spanish Institute, es la mejor
inversión que puede hacer en su vida!
I have just completed my second year at the Spanish Institute with
Monica as my instructor. I began at the Institute unable to complete a
full sentence in Spanish. Now I can communicate with people using 5
different tenses and have a substantial vocabulary. I have traveled 3
times to Costa Rica and Mexico and can speak with the native people
about many different subjects. I speak to people in restaurants, stores,
any place I see Latino people. If you want to learn Spanish and have
the desire to do so, I encourage you to enroll with the Institute. The
classes are very small and if you want you can have private sessions
also. You can customize how you want to do it, Monica is very
accommodating. el daniel
The Spanish Institute is a very effective
and efficient translation service. We use them for all of our
translations needs. No matter the dead line they are always able to get
the job done. We continue to use them time after time. I would recommend
them to anyone in need to this type of service! Tom W. APC
I love my tutor, he is very positive and
very helpful. He is able to answer all of my questions and I don't
struggle any more with my Spanish. The Spanish Institute holds the top
tutors in San Diego, they are native speakers, certified and with
credentials. The best place to learn Spanish!!!! Betty Ward. Student.
Thank you for your prompt and
professional service. My client and I are impressed with the speed and
accuracy of the translation service you provided. Patrick J.

and I are moving to Costa Rica in December and took a series of classes
from Monica to make our transition a little easier. It was a wonderful
experience! She really spends time concentrating on each student's
individual needs. Monica has been very patient with us (it has been 30
years since I had taken Spanish in college and my husband has never
studied a foreign language.) I am truly amazed at our comprehension
level after 13 weeks of her superb instruction! Granted, we're
certainly not fluent, but we will be able to at least communicate our
basic needs once we move. She has given us the confidence to go forth
and conduct our daily business in Spanish and the desire to make this a
life-long learning adventure. Monica, you are truly a gem! Linda C. and Joe W., Carlsbad
I would like
to say how impressed we were with Diane who tutored our daughter with
her Spanish. Although Diane only worked with Alison for 12 weeks, her
marks improved a lot and we feel that she genuinely cared about Alison
reaching her goals. Thank you. Deb M. Parent.
is a highly skilled and disciplined teacher. She knows how to motivate
her students. She's not a "clock watcher". She's generous with both her
time and her concern for each individual in her class. I've recommended
her to friends and will continue to do so. Arlen T. San Marcos.
let Maria know how much I appreciated her help! She will be happy to
hear Tim got an "A" in Spanish last semester. Marianne H. Parent.
I've been attending the Spanish Institute in Carlsbad for about 8 weeks
now and I'm learning to speak, read and write Spanish faster than I
ever thought possible. I've used Rosetta Stone and it works but it's
very very slow going and it won't get your conversational unless maybe
you're willing to invest a couple years. It's too slow. The class
sizes are small, the instructor is patient and fun and the teaching
methods are engaging and fun.
I took two years of Spanish in High School and we never learned as much
in two years as I've learned in two months. The best is yet to come,
it's totally affordable. If you're even considering learning Spanish
then I highly recommend you give TSI a call. Try and get Monica as your
instructor, she's a great teacher. Go check out a class for free and
see if it's for you, that's what I did.
you for all your help with our Spanish translation project. It's so
nice to work with a professional and competent organization. We
appreciate your friendliness as well, and that any concerns we had were
addressed promptly and completely. We look forward to future
collaboration with you. James B. Production Manager.
daughter's tutor was absolutely excellent. She recognized the issues
and addressed each one. My daughter's confidence and interest in Spanish
has improved significantly. She really enjoyed and looked forward to
her tutoring sessions. Thank you, thank you! Susan D. Parent.
I have been
in Monica's conversation class for 5 months. Prior to that I had not
practiced any Spanish for over 2 years and was nervous about the
prospect of speaking in front of others. These classes have been quite a
boom for my self confidence as Monica makes the experience not only
instructional but very relaxing and supportive. It is also wonderful to
converse with other students. She is an excellent teacher and human

We would like to thank you for providing
such a wonderful tutor to help our son with his Spanish. We have now

her services. Thank you once again for finding such a pleasant and
helpful person for us. Mr. & Mrs. King. Parents.

extremely helpful. Jenna T. Parent.
Excellent Spanish classes and I will
recommend it to friends. It helped me in speaking, writing and
understanding Spanish. The teacher is great, responsive, patient and
very flexible. I have learned so much Spanish since I started. The
lessons were diverse and interesting and she explained grammar in a way
that made it very easy for us to understand. Kelly C., Doctor, Encinitas

with The Spanish Institute. If you want to learn Spanish fast and with
confidence this is the place! Thank you Monica for all your wise words!

from me again. Lisa A. Director of Marketing. La Jolla

encouraging. My daughter's grades are now "A"s. This has been
the greatest decision, she is now so confident and happy and I am very
happy with her progress. Lisa.
absolutely loved this place and overall language experience. The classes
were lively, and my teacher was amazing. Always willing to help at
whatever cost! It was the first time I actually enjoyed learning
Spanish. I encourage everyone thinking about learning Spanish. I would
do this again in a second. I am now traveling to Puerto Rico and I
am feeling very confident and able to communicate in Spanish. Thank you
Spanish Institute, you have changed my life, now I am looking forward
this experience and I am not longer afraid of traveling abroad!

more in the past 2 months than in 2 years of college Spanish. The
teacher is excellent, very patient, great energy, and adjusting well to
the different abilities of the students. Paul B. student, Del Mar
I started I learned tremendous amount and had a lot of fun. Overall I
think this program is superior by far than others. I can't wait for my
next Spanish class! Mark G. Business owner, Carlsbad
is an excellent Spanish teacher. She is fluent in English, and has a
comprehensive knowledge of both the grammatical structure and day-to-day
details of the language. She has obviously had a lot of experience at
teaching people Spanish and obviously enjoys it herself. Alice R.
Business owner, Carlsbad
teacher is very flexible in structuring the lessons to my requirements,
providing relevant homework in order that the 2 hours spent with her is
as productive as possible. She is a very patient, helpful, she makes the
lessons fun and tailors them to my learning needs. I know I have
improved a lot through the exercises she assigns and through Spanish
articles we have read and discussed together. She is keen on correct
pronunciation and doesn't let me get sloppy or develop bad habits. Thank
you very much. Nora H., Oceanside
really feel like I learned an incredible amount in the last month. The
teacher is very friendly and makes me feel very comfortable in the
class. The other two students are very friendly and I feel very happy
and enjoying every minute. I'd recommend it to anyone who takes Spanish
language acquisition seriously and wants to learn in a comfortable
atmosphere. Emily B. Teacher, San Diego
is a terrific learning experience, the teacher is native and real nice.
Before I started I was self conscious about saying anything in Spanish
and my vocabulary was limited. The conversation class pushed me to speak
and the teacher correct my grammar when I need it, I am learning a lot
and very quickly. Kathleen R. Nurse, Oceanside
teacher is very smart and competent. I really enjoy my class and feel
I've come a long way. My conversation went from 0 to being able to
express myself. I've acquired great confidence. Thank you. Mary S.
Architect, PowayWow! There is
not much room for improvement when speaking specifically about the
class with Diane. I think it was stellar. If you offered the same
class, 3 days a week like Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, I would be
there. Please consider that. I think The Spanish Institute is the best
Spanish Language Institute in San Diego.
My class with Diane and my
experience when calling the school was nothing less than stellar.
Please contact me if you opt to offer a 3 days/week format. I can't do
the 4 nights/ week, it is just too much. Tom F.
tutor. He is helping me target exactly what needs improvement in my
Spanish skills (criminal law vocabulary and prepositions). I have
already been able to use the criminal law vocabulary at my work many
times, and being able to communicate with our clients in their native
language is helping me gain their trust and rapport. He has also
assigned me reading from Marquez and others, and reading that beautiful
Spanish is helping to extend my vocabulary beyond the legal terms I am
focusing on. He helps me practice translating police reports, and has a
good ear for how to make certain legal concepts most comprehensible to
Spanish speakers. Sincerely, Tom White
classes with my teacher not only help me improve my Spanish skills
tremendously, but are also fun and enjoyable. She is vivacious,
enthusiastic, and she genuinely cares about her students' progress. In
addition to reinforcing areas of strength, she helps pinpoint problems
and weaknesses, and then works with you to correct and strengthen those
weaker areas, which allows for rapid and efficient progress. She is a
native Spanish speaker who teaches excellent spoken Spanish in a 'real
world' conversational context, but she also has extensive knowledge of
professional terminology to help prepare students for special
professional contexts, such as medical, business, and legal settings.
To anyone seeking to improve their Spanish skills, I would recommend her
classes without hesitation. Regards, Julie
you for your email. I really liked the class. The book is clear and
useful, and not too expensive. Diane was able to tailor to our study
style and our needs. Class time was more focused and more intensive, and
I loved to come home thinking about all the new words and rules we had
covered. I always felt free and happy to ask questions; I found Diane to
be approachable, enthusiastic about Spanish teaching, and inspiring on
top of being very nice. Benedicte K.
a wonderful experience with my Spanish immersion class and with the
I intend on signing up for more lessons in a few weeks.

The Spanish Institute: I recently completed 10 beginner Spanish lessons
with Diane Kemp through the Spanish Institute. Over-all, I had a
wonderful learning experience. The classes were small, well-structured
and Diane made the process of learning feel very natural. She
constantly challenged me to improve my pronunciation, grammar and
vocabulary and provided guidance every step of the way with her warm,
I hope to take
additional Spanish lessons in September or October through the Spanish
Institute. While I am sad that Diane will be leaving to work in Madrid, I
wish her the best and know that she will be an asset to her new
program. Sincerely, Dr. John Impellizeri, Internal Medicine, Kaiser
