Our mission at Spanish Acueducto is to provide the best possible teaching quality so that our students learn how to communicate effectively in Spanish. We at Spanish Acueducto value the time and discipline that each student takes to try to learn a foreign language. We will always be proud to contribute to their personal and professional growth.

Why Spanish Acueducto?
Inspired by her hometown’s monumental landmark, Fabiola decided to pay tribute to it by naming her school Spanish Acueducto.
The most prominent feature of Querétaro City (México) is a huge aqueduct, which nobleman and arts patron Marquis Juan Antonio de Urrutia y Arana built between 1726 and 1738. The nuns at Santa Clara Convent had requested it be built for the residents of La Cañada to have water. The aqueduct’s 74 arches are each 60 feet (20 meters) wide and are, on average, 75 feet (23 meters) high. The aqueduct itself extends 4,199 feet (1,280 meters) — or more than three-quarters of a mile.

Just as the aqueduct carries life-bringing water to people separated by space, so does language bring “life” and connection to people separated by space. The aqueduct system itself transfers water, but what the water means to the people who receive and use it is quite valuable. Like the aqueduct, language serves as a bridge to help people communicate with each other.
