It Takes World Class People to Create a World Class Experience

Memorizing words without cultural context just isn’t enough if you want to have meaningful interactions in another language.

The Diáfano Method follows the Common European Framework of Reference for Language (CEFR) standards, but with a relevant twist that enables our clients to comfortably engage in conversations in the real world. We offer language learning programs that allow people to dive deep into the cultural context of the language they’re learning.

By creating language cohorts within institutions, we can help you expand your global reach, reduce churn, give your employees and company a competitive edge, and champion diversity & inclusion within your company. But it’s not just about teaching employees; it’s also about building a strong company culture through common purpose and memorable experiences.

Immersive Group Classes

Become conversational in a new language with group classes tailored to your workplace.

Impactful Individual Classes

Receive a more personalized experience with one-on-one language learning classes.

Cultural Competence

Gain a greater understanding of different cultures, people, heritage, and social identities. Increase diversity and inclusion at your organization and interact more effectively with people of diverse backgrounds.

Company Training In A Foreign Language

What People Say About Diáfano

“A skilled teacher who gives structured but fun lessons; I was quite pleased with my progress over the course of five weeks...I wanted to concentrate specifically on my reading, comprehension, and pronunciation, and I needed the attention to detail that private lessons provide. The set of language-learning tools I learned [...] gave me a great boost of confidence...I get a big kick out of being able to share books with Spanish words and phrases with children whose families come from Mexico, Peru, Puerto Rico, and, well, everywhere! "

“Both French and Spanish classes have been great experiences! In the language classes, there are students on different skill levels. Soha and Irma are great teachers. They are super patient and accommodate students at all levels. I've really enjoyed their teaching styles as well. I've learned so much and am able to speak more confidently."
