More about our Program

Dr. Smith says: “We live in a highly diverse, multicultural society, hence, the global need for persons to become fully bilingual is imperative— especially in English and Spanish. Effective communication needs are critical from day–to-day in all spheres of life, including the workforce. Functional knowledge of these languages –Spanish and English---is now a necessity —not a luxury.

In step with modern day trends, the Academy currently specializes in online language training. Courses are user-friendly and interactive so that learners can not only acquire the skills and speak the new language that they desire, but also enjoy the journey.

Dr. Smith utilizes her recently published textbook -Spanish Fast N’ Easy,,© 2024. This text provides a comprehensive, intuitive, yet practical and exciting instructional learning system for the new student. Her methodologies were acquired from her experiences as a professional linguist in the area of bilingual education and also years during which she founded and directed Smith Institute-School of Languages--in San Juan, Puerto Rico. There she successfully trained thousands of adult students in the metro area. Most of her clients were personnel of local banks and American-based pharmaceutical companies in the island.
