This is the best Spanish course I’ve undertaken. It’s a good balance of grammar, listening and speaking practice. The lessons are varied and the teacher is skilled.

Very good course. I feel I progressed. The course does need to be accompanied by an explanation of the grammar as the course concentrates on practicing speaking and there is no time to explain the grammar. If the most confident person says they understand it we move on.

I enjoyed the course very much. However, I think it needs to be acompanied by text on gramma as the course concentrates on speaking and little on explaining the grammar. If the most confident person says they understand the grammar, we move on.
