"I think the Graf Method is really very logical. It's almost like developmental milestones, things progress in a logical manner. Almost the same as crawling before walking. I have now completed Levels 2 - 5 and I am looking forward to doing Basic Conversation. I would definitely recommend this School to anyone who wants to improve or learn Spanish from scratch."

— Averil Weir, NYC

"The Graf Method for learning Spanish is excellent. I was very pleased with how the lessons were presented, the material and the way the classes moved quickly where necessary. I also was very please with a private lesson I had that covered 3 lessons I had missed. The instructor, Rolando González, moved me through the material easily and quickly. I highly recommend the Method and form of instruction."

— Dr. Louise Menlo, NYC

"I am very happy that I took this class, it totally met my expectations. The book and the method are great, everything is organized, and I appreciate the reminder emails for schedule and homework. It is very good to have the option to make up for a class on another day if one cannot attend the regular class. Víctor S. at the front desk is super helpful."

— Bettina Klein-Nau, NYC

The Berges experience

We offer both Spanish group classes and private lessons for adults in a relaxed atmosphere. We use our own teaching approach: the Graf Method. It is a logic-based system that takes advantage of the speaking skills you already have in your native language to teach you Spanish.

We show you how the language works. By taking classes with us, you will acquire a basic set of tools that will allow you to express yourself in nearly every topic and every tense in a relatively short amount of time.

Taking Spanish classes with us

We specialize in Spanish language teaching. Although our method could easily be extrapolated to other languages, we developed it with the sole purpose of effectively teaching Spanish to English-speaking adults. Our curriculum consists of five grammar levels plus several conversation courses. At the end of each level, students are required to pass an exam. Students taking conversation classes are required to do two oral presentations per course.

We can proudly say that, after taking all five levels and completing three or four conversation courses, our students are able to read, write, understand and speak Spanish with solid proficiency.
