Open up your world and opportunities when you speak both Spanish and English.


Welcome to San Patricio Language Institute where your language journey begins.

Founded in 1971, our purpose is to ensure that students who graduate from the Institute step into the 21st century better equipped to express their questions, thoughts, and desires in English.

As the American linguist Benjamin Lee Whorf once wrote, “Language shapes the way we think, and determines what we can think about.” Language also frames our feelings – it fuels our existence and makes complex communications possible. Add one more language to your life and you will have expanded your world.
