I really enjoyed the class. However, i thought it was for middle beginners,but it was for more advanced beginners. I really need an early beginners discussion to be comfortable with dialogue.

Loved the class, especially the class size (6 students + 1 instructor). Engaging and fun, and great opportunity to practice the language in conversation beyond “Como estás?”

The instructor was very good and also made the class lots of fun. However, the class was far too large (about 20 people) to allow for adequate participation by all participants. It was O.K. to get my "feet wet," but I would not want to attend a class that large on a regular basis. I would like to attend frequently, but I believe that the class should be half the size.

John is a great teacher-patient and kind. He works with you to get over your shyness that you feel comfortable making mistakes. I would definitely take a class again with them.
