What is CODE?

A professional group engaged since 1988 in offering a wide range of linguistic services which have been designed and structured to fit the needs and interests as may arise in professional and/or cultural fields from the contact with foreign means.          

“Code SL is a very good school, if you want to learn the basics of Spanish very fast. The classes are very small and you could, if you like, have private lessons. This means that you have a lot of attention. Further you have to speak Spanish all the time, so you’re forced to use all that you know of the language. We both liked the method of Code SL a lot, and we’ve learned a lot. We can really recommend this school, based upon our experiences.”
-Koen and Philippe, Holland

“A friend of mine who has been to B. A. this year gave me your site. He was very excited about your methods.”
-Philippe Van Leeuwen

“Quand je serai à la retraite, j’aimerais partager ma vie entre la France et l’Argentine. Pour cela je dois apprendre l’espagnol. Je suis donc venu à BA pour prendre des cours et pratiquer cette langue… J’ai commencé par rechercher des classes d’espagnol dans le centre ville. J’ai choisi Code parce que cet organisme m’a semblé très sérieux, avec un accueil chaleureux, et c’était le plus intéressant en matière de flexibilité, de qualité des professeurs et de prix. J’ai pris un cours particulier pour qu’on puisse évaluer mon niveau. J’étais un “faux debutant”. La directrice Florencia me proposa de prendre 2 heures de cours particulier par jour, 4 jours par semaine, et cela pendant 4 semaines. Mes professeurs me firent travailler la communication, la grammaire et le vocabulaire…Toutes appliquaient la meme méthode et furent excellentes. À la fin j’avais atteint un niveau “B1″. J’étais très content, sans l’ombre d’une déception. J’espère faire mon prochain voyage là-bas et continuer à prendre des cours chez Code.”
-Jean-Francois Gelamur, France.

“My sister has a friend who also lived in Buenos Aires. She had Spanish language courses at CODE. She gave me your address because she told me it was very good and she was totally convinced that it also would be a good school for me.”
-Tjerk Weidema

“Soy un amigo del Sr. Bruce Pollack. Él me ha dicho que su español mejoró mucho después de pasar tiempo con usted en sus clases.”
-Grover Thomas. USA

“From friends I have had your name. Their son has been at your school, his name is Tjerk and his mother informed me about the successful time her son spent with you.”
-Kitty Wijsman

“Hace un poco más de un año que regresamos a los EEUU de Buenos Aires. Extrañamos mucho vivir en Argentina! Quería agradecerte inmensamente por habernos brindado el servicio de Maira. Definitivamente es un genio para dar clases de español. Como verás, mi hija Isabella recibió un certificado y medalla de honor por haber sobresalido en un examen de español a nivel nacional en los Estados Unidos. Todo esto es obviamente gracias a las clases que brindó Maira. Como sabes, antes de recibir clases Isabella no entendía ni hablaba nada de español.”
– Israel Kontorosky, USA
