Great teacher, I know in some conversation classes it can be hard to keep the conversation going but the content was interesting and this rarely seemed a problem!

This is a lively class, which challenged me, but also helped my confidence in speaking to grow and I welcomed the the opportunities to share in discussions on current affairs as these really broadened my vocabulary.

Conversation classes are probably more useful once the basics of grammar have been mastered.

It’s a good way to keep your hand in to practice your Spanish but it isn’t frequent enough to really get going. The class is quite big so only limited amount of one-to-one time with the teacher.
