About Berges Institute
Dan Berges, a teacher with years of experience and a master's degree in education, founded Berges Institute, a liberal arts educational center, in 2013. A native of Madrid, Dan coordinates Spanish classes at the school that are designed to enhance conversational skills. The school uses the Graf method, which focuses on building a fundamental understanding of the language rather than on rote memorization of a handle of phrases. In adult classes, the method also eschews learning games in favor of more intensive education that will help pupils actually express themselves. Those sessions are led by staff made up largely of Spanish and Latin American expats, who put their native speaking abilities to use as teachers and translators.
