In doing so, we actually put you on the fast track to a deeper understanding that ultimately leads to meaningful results.

No gimmicks!

What people are saying about us


Many of our subscribers have shared their praises and thoughts on what we do. Here is just a small sample:

I found your Web site a few months ago and was so happy to find something to help with the transition from 'advanced spanish' to actual fluency. I've gone all the way through Pemsleur (twice), the State Department series (three times), and Michel Thomas, and still cannot really understand spoken Spanish. On News in Slow Spanish, I can.
I've gone back to the first episodes (for the grammar in particular) and am trying to work my way from there back to the present. I hope to catch up in a month or so. I was surprised at how useful the quizzes are -- I hate quizzes! -- but these are extremely good practice. I usually have to work through them more than once to get rid of all the red markup.
My favorite section is Explorando America Latina. I find that now when I listen to BBC's Mundo Hoy, I can follow far more than I could before. I plan to begin volunteering with the Florida Literacy Coalition, working with Spanish-speaking people here.

I really think you have the best learning format available for teaching languages. I always do my best to spread the word about your program.

I am 78 today and started to learn spanish 8 years ago when I retired from England and came to live in Spain. Since signing on with you and working through your past lessons, my spanish has at last started to integrate. Well-informed, stimulating and entertaining, your lessons work for me on every level.

After Explorando Latinoamérica, I am even making plans to travel again!

Keep it going.
