After spending quite some time looking at language schools in Boston, my husband and I settled on BASE. From the second we got to the door, it was all Spanish, all the time! I love that the teachers push you to think and ask questions in Spanish and there's never a time when you feel like an idiot. The location is good (close to the T) and the rates are really reasonable, especially given the quality of instruction. Short of actually going to a Spanish-speaking country, this is a great way to get immersion and instruction in one. Would highly recommend for learners of any level!

BASE has what all schools should have: an incredible attitude towards learning.

Without exception, BASE's teachers create warm,  welcoming, encouraging environments that made me forget I knew nothing. 

They made me feel like I was smart and funny and able to learn language easily. How did they do that? I don't know exactly. When I find out, I'm going to bottle it and make a fortune.

I just finished taking Básico A and B at the Boston Area Spanish Exchange.

I could not say enough good things about this school. Bill and the teachers are just fantastic to interact with and learn from.

If you're interested in learning Spanish, do yourself a favor and sign up for a class.

Classes have a very fun vibe and you definitely focus on conversational Spanish. I promise it's something you won't regret doing.
