I have been taking individual lessons at ‘The Art of Spanish’ since June of this year and I am delighted with the setting, the owner, my instructor, and my progress. I would recommend them to anyone looking to learn or improve their Spanish language skills.
Initially, I was impressed by the website and the description of Javier’s philosophy of teaching. I have continued to be impressed with every step since then. I contacted Javier by email, received a response right away and was invited to come in and talk to him. After we talked a bit, Javier did a brief, but effective, assessment of my current Spanish language level. He suggested that I start with individualized lessons at the intermediate level. I was ready to learn and signed up for classes right away.
My sessions with Rosa have been great! Rosa is a delightful, interesting, and effective teacher. I feel like I was placed at the right level of the curriculum – there are parts that are review for me and parts where I am learning new things. Because these are one-on-one sessions, conducted entirely in Spanish, I have lots of opportunity to talk, to listen, and to learn exactly what I need to learn. Rosa is able to quickly assess my strengths and weaknesses during any lesson – she gives me positive feedback when I’m doing well and lots of patient help where I need it.
I am very happy with the progress that I’ve made since I started at ‘The Art of Spanish’. I look forward to my classes every week, time flies when I’m there, and when I leave I’m motivated to do the homework that I’ve been assigned. If you sign up for classes here, you will not be disappointed!
