Gracias a su confianza, he conseguido trabajo en Barcelona :) Se lo recomiendo a todo el mundo. ¡Hasta pronto, equipazo!'

And José Mª Franco Reverte: 'Gracias por la organización del curso. ¡Tenéis una valoración excelente! El curso realmente es muy práctico y útil, ahora me veo capaz de dar clase a alumnos de cualquier nivel, desde los que empiezan de cero hasta los más avanzados. Podéis contar conmigo para ser parte del equipo.'

My experience here was better

My experience here was better than I could have expected a Spanish class to be - the teacher, the material and the atmosphere.
I love the people and the weather!
I liked watching and discussing video, playing board games that tested our use of the correct tense, and doing worksheets.
I wish I had more time to take classes but I definitly learned exactly what I was looking to learn in 12 weeks.
