San Pancho Spanish School – enriching people’s lives through language, learning, and understanding. 

Come learn Spanish utilizing the famous Warren Hardy method and curriculum in San Pancho (San Francisco), Nayarit, Mexico. San Pancho is an enchanting seaside village located 25 miles north of Puerto Vallarta, nestled between jungle mountains and expansive beaches on the Pacific Ocean. The school’s Spanish classes are taught by Maestro Lander Carter, a certified instructor, having studied extensively under Warren Hardy in San Miguel de Allende. In addition, his previous Spanish studies include Stanford University, La Universidad de Salamanca, Spain, and La Universidad Autonoma de Guadalajara.  Lander’s wife, Gretchen, has also studied Spanish under Warren Hardy, as well as at The American Graduate School of International Management and La Universidad Autonoma de Guadalajara.  Her role at the San Pancho Spanish school is processing registration and administering the accounting for the school.


San Pancho’s Language School is currently offering classes in Levels 1, 2, 3 and 4.

Level 1: Introduction to Power Verbs — a basic introduction for the beginning Spanish learner to gain familiarity with over 100 verbs and a working vocabulary of 200 words, enabling the student to communicate his/her needs and wants in short sentences in present time.

Level 2: Preterite tense and Object Pronouns. Learn the simple past tense, the most important (40% of the verb frequency). You will learn the direct and indirect object pronouns and a working vocabulary of 300 words.

Level 3: Integration of the Seven Indicative Tenses

Level 4: The Subjunctive Mood

Each level takes 2 1/2 weeks to complete.

Students study 3 days a week: MWF or TThS from 9am — 12 noon

There is approximately one hour of homework for each classroom hour. You can work at home with audios that are related directly to the Workbooks.


You will be working with a partner in timed exercises called games. You never answer or perform in front of the class, only with your partner. You use flashcards and workbooks as learning tools during the games. The Warren Hardy Method uses a “cross-training” modality that recognizes the importance of left and right-brain learning to develop both reading/writing and speaking/understanding skills simultaneously.
