Frequently asked questions
How long until my child or I will become fluent?
Our beginner classes are designed to expose children (and adults!) to Spanish and teach useful words and phrases. There are many factors involved in becoming fluent and our classes are one important piece of the puzzle. If you participate in Spanish class with us once/ week, and do nothing outside of class to improve your Spanish, you will learn a lot of useful words and phrases, but you will not become fluent. Some supplemental activities that will go a long way in helping you reach your goal of becoming fluent include changing the audio on your TV to Spanish, checking out bilingual books from the library, listening to Spanish music, and engaging in simple conversations with friends or family who speak Spanish.
My schedule has changed and we need to withdraw.
We're sorry to see you go! Please click on the document below and email a copy of the form to LaPuertaFW@gmail.com by the 15th of the month prior to withdrawal.
Will there be a discount for months with holidays.
Great question! The weekly, school year classes meet 34 times over a 9 month period with tuition of $675/ year. We allow the tuition to be paid over time, in monthly installments, for those who prefer that option. There are certain months that have more classes and other with less, however the monthly payments are the same regardless of how many classes meet in that particular month.
Can I switch class day/time?
If there is availability in another class, you are welcome to switch! Please email LaPuertaFW@gmail.com to make that change.
Are there makeup classes?
Since our classes meet every week during the school year, with the exception of holidays, we can not schedule makeup classes. If your child is absent, please contact LaPuertaFW@gmail.com to discuss the possibility of attending another class that week. In the event that severe weather causes classes to be cancelled, every effort will be made to offer virtual classes for any in-person class that is affected. Please check your email for details in the event of severe weather.
Where are you located?
We teach online and on location. Many of our classes are open only to specific schools or neighborhoods, while others are open to anyone who would like to join. If you'd like your school, neighborhood, church, etc. to become a Spanish class host site, please reach out to LaPuertaFW@gmail.com for more details.
