Welcome to La Puerta Centro de Español!   We are Francisco (Pako) and Erika Sánchez and we have a passion for bringing hispanic culture to you.  We are primarily a Spanish langauge school but we also sell handmade Mexican textiles and artisan products, create culture experiences for you here in Fort Worth, and coordinate guided tours of Spanish speaking countries.  

For general inquiries and further information, please contact us:


Erika began learning Spanish as a freshman in high school and went on to earn her BA in Spanish from Sam Houston State University.  She has experience teaching Spanish in grades K-12 in the public school system in Texas.  Her interest in Spanish has taken her to Spain, Argentina, and Mexico.  She lived in Mexico City for 2 years where she was immersed in the language and culture as she lived with Mexican families.  She has first-hand knowledge of what it takes to learn Spanish as a second language and looks forward to sharing her experiences with you!


Pako is a native of Mexico City where he lived for the first 29 years of his life.  English is his second language, therefore he is well acquainted with the difficulties that often accompany language learning!  He has traveled extensively throughout Mexico as well as Spain.   He has experience teaching Spanish for business and looks forward to helping you achieve your language goals!
