I've studied Spanish with a couple of schools and various tutors and WLS is by far the best. The class sizes are small (less than 10 people) and facilitate the learning of Spanish across speaking, watching videos, reading, and learning new vocabulary. This is quite a contrast with other schools that focus solely on conversation. Conversation is great for a discussion-focused class, but when you're still learning grammar and vocabulary, it's important to teach these subjects using different techniques (e.g. videos, reading out loud as a class). Both styles of Spanish are studied (Spain and Latin America), which prepares you to speak when traveling to the motherland or any other country in the world.
As someone who worked in education as a high school teacher, I've been very impressed with the instructors. They're all talented, patient, professional, and really know how to keep everyone engaged in the class. You can tell there is a rigorous process for teacher selection as the instructors I've interacted with have been top notch (big shout out to Paula and Juan!). The director Tara is very organized and responsive. Right after signing up for a class, you receive automated calendar invites for each class session with all the logistical details. The class price is affordable and there are usually discounts for students who sign up early for future classes after enrolling.
Classes are split across two convenient locations: 9th St NW DC (a block away from the Chinatown Metro) and Washington Blvd. in Arlington. I've taken classes in both locations and getting to/from were easy with a car (parking available in Arlington) or riding Metro.
I'm now in the Upper Intermediate courses and plan to continue through the advanced levels. Whether you're a beginner or advanced speaker, I highly recommend WLS.
