Why Boston Area Spanish Exchange?

Learn about Boston Area Spanish Exchange, offering Spanish classes with invite-a-friend-FREE in downtown Boston! 

Why BASE?  

Here are just a few reasons why to learn Spanish with BASE:

Invite-a-friend-FREE continues

By paying one tuition for Spanish classes in Boston this month, you are welcome to invite for a free course (seven weeks) someone who has never taken a Spanish course with BASE.  As far as we are concerned, you are giving a generous gift of a Spanish course.  If you prefer on your end, you can both share the tuition investment and get a 50% discount!  Feel free to ask us for an attractive gift card to invite your friend to study Spanish for free!

Free Detailed Assessments

Take BASE's commitment-free Self-Assessments, let us know how it goes on your registration or via the contact page, and follow it up with the Written Assessment.  Upon completion, a BASE coordinator will contact you to determine the right course for you!  You can also complete BASE's Registration to get started right away.

Truly Small Groups

While our tuition is already very affordable, far less than any college-credit program, we are able to maintain small groups of approximately 8 students (often there are just a handful) in your Spanish classes, unlike what you will find in other adult or continuing education programs, which can run courses with 12, 15 or 20+ students. How much will you learn to speak Spanish? That is the question. The larger the group, the more difficult it is to manage this key aspect of your goal of improving your Spanish conversation skills.

High-Quality Learning Experience with Group Compatibility

The small size of our Spanish classes allow us to focus on providing you with the opportunity to put your Spanish learning into conversation practice with Spanish teachers and classmates who have skills and interests compatible with yours. We provide detailed Spanish language assessments, to make sure you are in the right Spanish course.  If there is an erroneous placement, if you are in the wrong Spanish course for your level and skills, you or your instructor need only to bring it to the attention of the Directors, and you'll be placed in the appropriate Spanish course.  

We are local.  We are teacher-owned and teacher-run.

We are a small Boston-based business.  BASE was created in 2004 by a Colombian-American couple. The Spanish school has sustained itself by the sweat of teachers' brows in providing high-quality Spanish classes and by word of mouth among the families, friends, and colleagues of those enrolled in Spanish courses at BASE.  There have been no investors and no flash.  Just Spanish teachers getting it together to do our part to provide you with the personal and professional enrichment you seek through Spanish learning, at the same time bridging cultural and linguistic gaps in the Boston-area and beyond.
