Such a fun class and by the end of 10 weeks I felt like I had not only learned a lot but really polished up my previous Spanish knowledge. I found learning the past tense preterito perfecto was really helpful in allowing me to communicate better. Sandra was such a great teacher and really encouraged us to speak as much Spanish as possible with nearly the entire class being conducted in Spanish. Highly recommend!

Замечательные курсы. Прекрасные преподаватели. Никогда не думала, что в таком возрасте можно учить третий язык и в принципе даже что-то и выучить :) теперь даже могу узнавать какие-то знакомые слова э, если кто-то говорит по испански. Осталось только вспомнить что это значит :) Хочу сказать особое спасибо преподавателям. Это было смешно, познавательно и "без напряга".

I learned basic spanish. enough to get me through Mexico and to be understood. My instructor was fantastic - very thorough, and the course is well structured. I enjoyed everything, and love it so much I am continuing. I found in Farolito just what I had been looking for. I also didn't mind travelling the distance. Very happy student - Mt Eliza.
