Before starting the course I had dabbled in trying to learn Spanish, unfortunately because they were in group classes for beginners, but it seemed I was the only "real" beginner, it left me feeling a little deflated. The class moved at too quick a pace and I couldn´t keep up and the teacher had no time to go over things again.
I was so excited about learning with the Spanish Language Site, its different. I can learn at my own pace with very clear and concise lessons in my own home. I am now learning basic pronunciation and grammar and now can go out and practice without being embarrassed. The lessons are easy to follow and understand and you can go back over the lesson again and again until you grasp it. The tests are great for measuring your knowledge before moving on to the next one.
Overall the course is very well thought out and executed. Thank you so much for this wonderful site.
