Maria was everything I expected my Spanish teacher to be. She was friendly, pleasant, articulate and patient. Every class was interesting and I was able to understand her very well. For all these reasons I'm continuing on to Level 2. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND MARIA. Maria is easy to understand, speaks clearly and pronounces very well.

Maria is a great instructor. She was always on time, always polite, and always included everyone to participate when doing the homework assignments. She always asked if we had any questions before moving forward, and she made sure she answered any questions that was asked with thoroughness.

I was not satisfied with how the instructor taught the class for a number of reasons. Some of the conversations that the instructor initiated did not encourage students to use intermediate Spanish; many questions could be answered with one word, or the name of a book or movie. The instructor used many atypical words sometimes it seemed in every sentence which made it difficult to follow; there was no attempt to tailor the language to an intermediate level. The instructor was not good at making sure that all students had an opportunity to speak. The class always ended early.
