Whether you are learning Spanish or teaching English our educational process is a two-way street! At the Mélida Anaya Montes Language School we believe that teachers and students alike learn and teach throughout their experience. In the classroom, we focus on the students’ ability to communicate. Even beginners can hold conversations!
Using popular education methodology, our school incorporates core themes related to the social justice movement into language learning. Themes include:
-Intervention of Dominant Powers in the Developing World
-Threats to the Environment and their Effects on Life
-The Social Movement-Roots and Causes
Spanish classes are offered in the mornings for beginners to advanced speakers. Spanish teachers are Salvadorans trained in teaching Spanish as a second language. They have a variety of experience levels; some with up to 8 years of teaching experience at CIS, and most are involved in the social movement.
English classes are also available for basic to conversational level students. Many of our Spanish students are also volunteer English teachers in the evenings! Classes are offered to adults and priority is given to those involved in the social movement, women struggling for their self-determination, and individuals who are unable to attend other language schools for financial reasons.
