Learn Spanish Today!

The Spanish Academy is the top-rated Spanish language school in South Africa, offering rapid results and practical knowledge of the language in the shortest time frame. At the Spanish Academy, we teach an unprecedented conversational skills course to people traveling to Spain, the USA, South, and Central America.

Our clients range from school children to adults. We cover all aspects of reading, writing, and grammatical skills, placing a huge emphasis on the importance of sound conversational techniques. To be in a foreign country, be it for vacation or relocation purposes, without the proper means of communication can be a daunting prospect.

We aim to give our clients confidence in all types of situations, thus allowing quick and easy integration into the Spanish culture. Comments are always made by former students as to how their experiences were so much greater and more rewarding as they were able to speak freely and get to know the wonderful people and spirit of the different countries.

  • After meeting Slade virtually as an enigmatic lecturer, he has become a mentor and not only that has taught me to speak Spanish! A language that I can speak, understand and read, albeit a newbie, we have so much fun while learning and an added bonus that our group supports each other. Slade muchas gracias a mi fenonmenal maestro

  • My daughter convinced me I could learn Spanish in just 12 weekly 3 hour lessons. I was skeptical, until I met Slade, the proprietor of the Spanish Academy. Eccentric, flamboyant and mysteriously delightful is how I would describe him; but I daresay, I still am not doing justice to his brilliance... Before we left the first lesson we could understand whole passages he read to us in Spanish; it was freaky. Well needless to say, the rest of the course lived up to its promise and after 12 weeks, if not completely conversant, we could fully understand virtually anything he wanted to discuss in Spanish.

  • Slade Frank is my language-God! I never in a million years thought I would learn a new language in my fifties, but I am, thanks so this genius who has made it easy and fun, yet challenging. The Spanish Academy is the only way to go. Thank you.

  • I have studied Spanish at university level and could not speak the language. I started studying with Slade at the Spanish academy and have learnt more studying with Slade than I ever did studying 3 years of university Spanish. Slade has a unique style of teaching Spanish. He understands the method of teaching a language to English speaking students and his passion and enthusiasm is clearly felt in his classes. You will be speaking Spanish in a few short weeks if you follow his technique. If you are thinking about studying Spanish, then this is the place to be. I highly recommend Slade and The Spanish Academy

  • I recommend The Spanish Academy wholeheartedly! We really were able to speak Spanish with confidence after the first lesson, never mind after the first course with Slade, and enjoyed it so much that we continued with his Advanced course! To anyone thinking its difficult to learn a new language, Slade has you covered! Gracias Slade!

  • Excellent way to learn if you want to learn Spanish fast and in a very exciting way! I tried apps and various other ways but the way we have been taught really embeds the structure of Spanish in ones mind. I am now onto my second course. The founder (Slade) is a passion-filled master of his trade has gone out of his way to make the learning process simultaneously entertaining and educational! I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THE SPANISH ACADEMY SA! Muchas gracias! 🙂
