The student experience at the Edmonton Hispanic Bilingual Association includes a diverse range of curricula, extracurricular activities, and opportunities to bond as a community.
EHBA was founded in 1981 as a non-profit organization and it is recognized by Alberta Education, to teach Spanish to an English-speaking community, as well as to promote Hispanic culture in the city of Edmonton, Canada.
Our organization provides an atmosphere of friendship as an approach to Hispanic culture, not only through formal education of the language but as well through opportunities to practice the language in different social and cultural settings.
About 400 adult students each year receive Spanish instruction in our facilities. A good many have become friends and familiar faces remaining involved with us, lending their advice and companionship for years.
Almost 40 years serving thousands of students in Edmonton who attend classes once a week, during Fall, Winter, and Spring terms.
Our prices are affordable with special rates and opportunities for students and those aged 65+.
