Esperanza Education is a collaboration between language specialists who share a common educational vision that emphasizes language learning for intercultural communication and understanding. We believe that language learning is about much more than acquiring skills – it is about learning to understand other cultural perspectives and working together with others. We work together to develop resources for progressive language education and we work with our students to develop learning plans that best suit their needs. Through this approach, we have found that it is possible to teach and learn languages while fostering individual growth, cross-cultural cooperation, and social change.
