It was a great intro into Spanish and the course materials/assignments were super helpful

The course was excellent. I studied French for many years, but had no formal instruction in Spanish. I knew some words and phrases that I had learned from friends or from using apps and online self-study programs. The course pulled everything together by helping me to understand the grammar and have confidence that I was saying things correctly. I saw a huge improvement in my ability to read and understand Spanish. I also enjoyed the learning environment. Even though the course was online, I enjoyed the interaction with fellow students. I highly recommend this course.

The Beginners Spanish course is very well designed. The rules of grammar are presented in a very focused way which allows for easing into conversational Spanish. Looking forward to Level 2.

Eva actually taught this course, because Nelson was out on family leave. She was friendly, clear, and very encouraging and helpful.

I enjoyed this Level 1 class. It was exactly where I needed to start and felt the pace of the class was perfect.

The course was great as far as materials and the instructor. I just found 90 minutes to be a very long time to commit on a weekly basis. I’d prefer an hour long course.

Julia is great. The curriculum works well. I would have valued a bit more learning around everyday phrases and some basic aids to communicating, such as what I believe is a very commonly used verb quierer and tips like tener que. I am now learning about these in a different format that I am trying, which is more about learning to speak and comprehend, quickly. I suggest including the key verbs --- with reflexives, of course, we need llarmarse and levantarse, but do we really need to prioritize verbs for shaving and putting on makeup? Nonetheless, I am using what I learned with Julia a lot, and I would recommend to anyone the foundational benefits provided by Berges and Julia.

I was in a class with some great students and we had a very wonderful and patient instructor Alan Z. He made learning Spanish fun and interesting.
