About Us

This method, created by the founder, Juan Carlos Ayarza, is a direct and effective approach to adult language acquisition. You may have had language classes consisting of repetition with no application. In other words, you did not really USE the words that you were repeating and memorizing. Language Interaction- OLEHOLA is dedicated to a very particular method of Spanish language instruction, with interaction at its core. Learning a language is a natural, active process. We may observe this in children learning to speak, and to an extent, you will learn in a similar way.  However, unlike a child, an adult uses more overt logic when learning languages. In our classes you will learn Spanish through immersion and interaction, and we will reinforce your learning with a  simple explanation of grammar only in Spanish.

The mission of Language Interaction is to reach you to speak Spanish, but also to go beyond that to be the link between you and the Latin World, its community and culture. We do so with a commitment to the learner, and to building positive, productive relationships.
