One of the main goals of this school is to pass this passion on to every student.
Although Kingsbrook’s classes are a balance between conversation, grammar, vocabulary and written comprehension, this school pays special attention to the conversation since the aim of this course is to let students speak Spanish in daily life as soon as possible.In order to achieve so, this course methodology is dynamic, communicative and participatory.
Teachers will not only teach you grammar rules but also a language so you can communicate.They use the “direct method” so they will teach you Spanish in Spanish, don’t be afraid, since 2001 more than 10,000 students have successfully learned Spanish At Kingsbrook school with this method.

In classes, you will learn grammar in a practical and dynamic way. Students are taught through the functional acquisition of language, in other words, the student explores and learns concepts through real situations.
