''I started my last session with Claudia Concha, but moved on to most recently be working with Alvaro Llanos. I have very positive thing to say about my classes with Claudia, but this survey is in reference to Alvaro's class. Al's strength is that he doesn't take it easy on me--which I appreciate very much. I chose SpanishBlackbelt because it has been the only format where I have been able to improve my Spanish fluency without traveling to do a formal immersion program. Al is good at mirroring this experience. He speaks to me in our classes fairly directly without watering down his speech to beginner levels. When I fail to understand something he adjusts and explains in simpler Spanish, of course. But I have enjoyed this direct approach and feel it helps me progress faster. '' 2017-03-26 00:00:00
