Spanish Language Boot Camp -- a six-week class that's fun, easy and affordable!

The average adult can speak a foreign language confidently in a relatively short time. At the Lakeshore Ethnic and Diversity Alliance Spanish Language Academy Boot Camp, you’ll see that you’re never too old to learn a second language, it doesn’t have to require a lot of time, and it can be affordable.

Boot Camps take place at the offices of the Lakeshore Ethnic Diversity Alliance, housed in the Macatawa Resource Center in Holland.

In this informal environment, you’ll quickly discover how painless and straightforward it can be to learn Spanish. You will develop confidence and Spanish competence through structured training, exercises, and verbalizing, all while having fun and making new acquaintances. All this for just $100! Sign up for two levels at the same time for only $175!

Because we want your experience to be fun and beneficial, we ask that you take 5-10 minutes to complete a short online Spanish language quiz. The instructor will review your responses and contact you by email to discuss the best boot camp for you.

Have you taken Level I, but are not sure if you're ready for Level II? Feel free to register for Level I again. 
A limited number of financial scholarships are available upon request.
