Spanish language classes

This “Romance language” is the 2nd most spoken language today, and is now part of the Darien elementary curriculum for our kids.  Why not take Spanish language classes yourself?

For all DCA Spanish classes, students should plan to practice a few hours a week to get the most from these classes.
