Mesoamerica Institute is holding online classes using Skype, a free internet phone service that works like Yahoo, and MSN Live Messengers. Students will have the opportunity to meet and talk online. Online students can exchange files with the instructor in real time and see our lessons at the same time when needed. This will be ideal and convenient for everybody in the greater bay area! At Mesoamerica we used skype software because its audio (voice/sound) quality is a lot better than others which make online learning more effective.
We offer private classes at $30 per hour, with the first class free. Sessions are organized in 10-week basis.
Note: To help determine your appropriate class level,
refer to the following descriptions. If you are uncertain about your level,

Classes cover future and conditional tenses,the command forms and some of the
subjunctive tenses, thus building conversational fluency.

technical level. The language is analyzed, idiomatic usage is deepened and bad language
habits are corrected.
