Spanish Language Classes

CoCoDA provides online Spanish language classes for delegates before or after their trip to Central America. Classes are provided via Skype by the Pajaro Flor Spanish School in Suchitoto, El Salvador. All classes are in Spanish (the teachers do not speak English), but are designed to assist even beginner students.

Classes are $11 an hour and can be scheduled nearly any day or time.

Those interested in taking these classes can contact Jim Mulholland at jim@cocoda.org to make arrangements for payment. Once payment is made, CoCoDA will help arrange a schedule of classes.
