"I was surprised how easy it was to upgrade my Spanish skills
via Skype. My instructor turned my homework sentences into interesting
conversations about my interests, my grand kids and my family. I was lucky
enough to actually meet my instructor, Candelaria, when I came to Panajachel
to do volunteer work. She gave me a tour of the town including the market
while we practiced my Spanish skills." - Gladys,
“Learning Spanish online has been a very positive experience for me. It has allowed me to learn language like youngsters learn language. They listen, repeat words, make phrases, and finally speak with sentences. Children learn tenses, vocabulary, and concepts very naturally. My online classes with have allowed me to pursue this style of learning. Thank you Candelaria!” - Ken, Canada
