Vámonos Spanish Center was founded in 2014 by its lead teacher, Amanda Reichert. With a combination of unique curriculum and the immersion method, its no wonder why Vámonos attracts so many students and continues to have waiting lists! Learning a language at any age should (and can!) be fun- during class you'll play games, sing songs, converse with peers and do skits. You will never be bored and likely be surprised at how fast time passes. Worried about "immersion"? We are skilled teachers who make the content comprehensible- but if you are lost are confused, just ask...or, have a glass of wine to relax a bit and know that it's ok to not understand everything. Slowly, you will see progression and be excited about your ability to understand more and more.. ¡Vámonos! (Let's go!)
