        David’s support was fundamental during my Spanish learning process. Not only did he help me increase my confidence to hold solid conversations with native Spanish speakers, but he also helped me to acquire vocabulary related to my field which resulted in new career opportunities for me that include leading teams across the Americas.

        David helped grow my confidence in speaking Spanish. I could ask all the questions I needed and he would explain in a way I would understand and remember. I visited Spain following David's classes and it was amazing having conversations in Spanish! Not only did it feel like a huge accomplishment, but it also impressed my friends and family.

Hola! I'm David - Folks feel so happy when they notice you are eager to communicate in their language - it enriches the entire travel experience.

When I moved to Toronto from Bogotá 16 years ago, I spoke English and Spanish only.

Today, I speak Spanish, English, and Portuguese, and can get by in Italian, French, and German.

I'm here to share the approach I have adopted to learn languages so you acquire enough Spanish to make the most of your next travel experience.

In 10 hours, you'll hold interesting conversations, navigate cities, and order food confidently.

A couple of years ago I broke into the travel industry with zero experience thanks to my languages.

Best part? Getting paid to travel and eat! I've been running culinary tours around the world, turning strangers into families thanks to the power of food and languages.

Spanish is the keys to help a million doors worldwide.

Struggling to access those keys?

I'll help you find them.
