That is how they came up with the idea and founded a school of their own, to make the dream of an institution, that teaches its students differently become reality.   What is so different about SMS Spanish Experience? With all due respect to other schools and their methodology – our aim is, to break away from the system of language classes, that is heavy on theory, impersonal, unflexibel, antique and yet present in many places.
