What others say.

  • Great class! And the location was also perfect! Tutor was the best! Already enrolled in the next course :)

  • I’ve learned such a lot in my three Spanish courses this year, thanks mainly to the tutor who was always well-prepared, patient and humorous and using lots of materials that weren’t in the textbook, which was great. And I also appreciated the listening exercises, which were challenging but very useful.
