Here's what some of our students say!

"I love this school! Since I have been attending, my Spanish has improved tremendously. The class sizes are small and instructors are knowledgeable and engaging as well. A big bonus is that the classes are extremely affordable compared to other schools. I will continue to attend classes here!"

-Kaira West

"Portlandia is a place to practice and improve Spanish and have a good time doing so. Walter Osorio is a generous host and provides atmosphere, refreshments, company, cultural and linguistic understanding, movies, and a diverse crowd of interesting people to converse with. We learn from Argentinians, Bolivians, Mexicans, Peruvians, Salvadoreans, and, of course, United States people from many walks of life."

-Jane and Joe Snyder

"What Portlandia offers isn't elementary conversational Spanish nor college-style text-book Spanish. Walter Osorio teaches his students how to communicate. The book he uses is based around common verbs, enough grammar and along the way adds lots of fundamental vocabulary. Outside of class, Walter has created a community of students, friends and native Spanish speakers who gather weekly for movies or open conversation where a student, beginner or advanced, can hear and practice Spanish. I can wholeheartedly recommend Portlandia School which is guaranteed to get you way beyond buenas dias (or advance your current Spanish speaking ability)."
