Both of my girls are doing your classes, we live in the South of England. Best language classes ever!! Within a few weeks or a month my daughter – who is always hard on herself and thinks she’s bad at Spanish – could understand Spanish as well as I do. I took Spanish as a third language in french schools for 6 to 8 years!
The first response my 13 yr. old had to this class was a look of terror. Terror that it was immersion, and terror that she had to speak. Even during one session, this emotion began to shift as she discovered what she could rapidly accomplish. Several sessions in, she beams after class, says things like, “this is so fun” and “I love this class”, and has even been initiating Spanish study based on what is studied in class. Maestra Perla gets right to business in a kindly manner which my daughter appreciates. My daughter loves the sense of accomplishment as well as the rapid comprehension she gets from this class. I love that she gains practice with public speaking in situations out of her comfort zone in a safe and success oriented environment. Fyi, I enrolled this student in two beginning Spanish classes on Outschool at first; the other was also excellent, with a wonderful engaging teacher in a more traditional learning style. After a month, I had my daughter choose which class she would continue. She chose this immersion experience. Thank you ,Maestra Perla!
Perlea (the instructor) was smart, enthusiastic, and flexible. Beautiful visual aids.
