I was not sure that I could learn Spanish without talking in English at all in the beginning. At the end of level 1, I am so proud that with an excellent teacher, Carlos, I made it. Thank you, Carlos, for all your help.
I like the concept of total immersion. Carlos has original ideas for the class. The amount of information is not overwhelming. The homework in perfect for us.
"Learning Spanish for work seemed a daunting task. Luckily, we called Carlos! He has truly made class fun and memorable. Our conversations are very engaging - we act out what we read in order to truly learn the language. Very highly recommend Bilingual Communications.”

“This was a pleasant and informative experience. They have flexible hours to make it more convenient for the students, and they use practical methods. I recommend them to everyone who wants to speak Spanish, because they can do a class especially for you. To study at Bilingual Communications was a beneficial experience and gave me the success and the confidence to be a Bilingual Teacher. Many thanks to Bilingual Communications: Now I can be a Bilingual Teacher – A dream come true!

“When my oldest daughter enrolled in a Pre-AP Spanish III Class in high school, she was having difficulty with oral communication and verb conjugation. After studying with Carlos a few weeks, her grades greatly improved. She studied with him for two years, and earned A’s in Pre-AP Spanish II, as well as, in AP Spanish IV. Mr. Calderón invited me to observe a few sessions, and he utilized many real life examples instead of strictly relying on the book. He used many teaching methods, including hands-on methods. Mr. Calderón is an excellent teacher since he has great communication skills, he insures that the student has a thorough understanding of the material, is well organized, has patience, is very creative, and has great personal skills.

Señor Calderón was genuinely invested in the success of each student. He personally made me feel like family. When I became sick, he called to check on me. The class was fun and interactive as we learned how to communicate without English. I also liked that we had a small class and Señor Calderón devoted an equal amount of time to each student. I have learned more in 3 months than I did during 2 years in high school and 2 years in college Spanish. Bilingual Communications rocks!

I have taken 3 levels of Spanish with Bilingual Communications, and through these classes, my Spanish skills have grown exponentially. I have learned not only how to speak with confidence, but also how to read quickly and fluidly, and to write competently. I have only ever experienced kindness and care from both Carlos and Marcia Calderón, and it is easy to see that they are passionate about the success of their students.
One of my favorite aspects of this program is its commitment to immersion. Translating is NOT a part of any class, and because of this model, I have learned how to train my brain to think in Spanish and therefore communicate more proficiently. I also love how I have been taught Hispanic culture, traditions, and idiomatic phrases, which all serve to bring the Spanish language to life. Overall, I have LOVED my experience with Bilingual Communications and would 10/10 recommend it to anyone seeking language training.

The choice of material was perfect. The focus on using only Spanish while learning the language was very helpful. I had individual classes, so it was very beneficial to me, and it could be executed according to my place of learning and observing material. The friendly and welcoming atmosphere of the faculty and the environment was an additional positive element that encouraged coming for each class with a positive attitude
- Sister Edyta Krawcayle
Well, the first positive aspect is the full immersion. It was steady, and if we didn’t understand a word, Carlos demonstrated the word in objects or with other verbs. Second positive aspect is the enchiladas. I mean we say an English word, we have to pay up 25 cents. That was really good because we need to know a time and place to use our English or Spanish.
- Isaac Diaz
Full immersion was absolutely great. Mr. Carlos explaining the words in Spanish clearly was great, too. The class overall was amazing, and I thank God for helping Mr. Carlos with the class and teaching us right.
- Isaiah Diaz
I like that we only speak Spanish during the class, and I like the available dates and times. I like the verb cards and the picture book. I think the acting of the verbs was especially helpful.
- Page Nix
I like that we are not allowed to speak English, that we are fully immersed. I like the order of the lessons that we follow in the book. I found the materials we were given very helpful. I liked being in a small group of 3-4 people.
- Natalia Votinova
Carlos was very well informed of the language. I enjoyed the participation, and he did his best to explain words without translating. The class material was very helpful. He gave great advice on how to practice outside of class. Carlos and his wife Marcia were always very kind and understanding.
