The classes I have taken with Varon have been fun, interesting and challenging.  He is a wonderful teacher who has the unique ability to appreciate the individual needs of his students and address them in creative ways.  During these past few years of taking group and private lessons, I have continued to improve in all areas of Spanish language proficiency, including conversational skills, which for me, is the most difficult.  I have enjoyed attending several great meetups recently which he has organized.  Varon is very patient, witty, sympathetic, humble and devoted to his students.  In the classroom, he often encourages students to participate in a variety of shared projects which fosters friendships and a sense of community.  Anyone interested in learning or improving their Spanish language skills would benefit from taking classes with Varon through Boulder Spanish.


“Alejandra was the most wonderful host in her home this evening. By mixing it up this time with a short movie clip in Spanish along with new vocabulary (for me) mixed with drinks and snacks – very enjoyable”!

Fue un placer conocer a gente tan linda… realmente lo pasamos a gusto, !con mucha risa! Muchas gracias a nuestros anfitriones por todo el trabajo técnico que hicieron para montar el cortometraje con subtítulos en español… !no es una cosa tan sencilla, pero…. ÉXITO! 🙂 (Y no les he de chulear.)

My level of Spanish acquisition has improved noticeably since I began studying with Varon and Boulder Spanish. I enjoy the conversations with my fellow students and the topics are interesting. Varon is an excellent instructor and facilitator. (I am a retired teacher so I have a background in sound instructional methods.) I’m in the Reading & Conversation class which builds vocabulary and reinforces grammar.
I highly recommend Boulder Spanish.


By far, the best language course I have taken yet! Not only am I learning theory, I am learning how to communicate and use my Spanish in a practical way that will be useful for my travels and in my job. Highly recommend Varon and Boulder Spanish.

Boulder spanish does a fantastic job of not only teaching the language but also teaching the culture of the many latin countries. They do this while making each class interesting and fun!

I’ve tried a lot of different Spanish language programs over the years with varying results and experiences, but I have to say that Varón Osorio is doing something unique at Boulder Spanish. Not only is the method of teaching the language first rate, but more importantly there is a tangible feeling that in his classes you are part of a community of people who really care about each other. This is probably because, for Varón, teaching Spanish seems to be so much more than a job, and rather a true vocation, which you feel every time you’re in his class. I would strongly recommend Boulder Spanish to anyone who is serious about taking their Spanish to the next level!

I have been taking weekly Spanish lessons from Varon for over a year. Sometimes in groups and more frequently one on one. Varon is not content to just teach grammar, vocabulary etc., but instead uses short stories, novels, history, games, and thought to provoke questions to expand your knowledge of both the language and culture from Tierra del Fuego to Catalonia. He has successfully brought together students who are really interested in learning Spanish, but also enjoy learning from one another. Varon is terrific!

This Spanish school is excellent. Varon makes each class interesting and challenging. We have had several guest teachers sharing their lives and passions from their native Spanish speaking countries. Varon always has the time and the patience to explain otra vez my problems with grammar and pronunciation. But most of all the classes are fun!
