Key Benefit SpanishBlackBelt ''Adrian is very patient,observant, attentive and pleasant. He provides a session atmosphere which invites learning and curiosity. He seems to tweak the delivery of the lesson's topics in a style in which all students, regardless of the slight difference in language exposure, can absorb the information and verbally participate without fear. His flexibly teaching style allows for more emphasis on areas of confusion; however, we continue to cover each lesson to its fullest. The first few minutes of each session begins with "...tell me about your weekend" or some topic. There is no escaping this conversation for each person must answer. This zooms me into Spanish mode. It also starts my tongue to loosen. I enjoy his inclusion of sentence or paragraph reading, short videos (various accents) and class conversation to improve pronunciation, listening and comprehension skills. Adrian always asks if each topic covered was understood and he allows time review, if needed. I truly enjoy my lessons because as Adrian says, in Spanish: It's easy, [*]!''

Key Benefit SpanishBlackBelt ''I can’t say enough good things about Adrian. This was third my class with him. He explains things in a way that makes Spanish seem uncomplicated. He is patient, supportive and builds one’s confidence. I am able to understand, read and speak Spanish at a level that far exceeds my starting point. In other language classes I’ve had, I’d peter out after a certain point and thought that learning a language was not in the cards for me. These classes are formatted so you build on one element at a time and, as long as you do your homework, it’s never really difficult. β€œEs fΓ‘cil, verdad?” is a phrase that Adrian uses every week and my classmates and I always nod in agreement because Adrian makes it seem easy. Each class also builds on the previous class so you are constantly reviewing previous content. I’ll be continuing with the light blue level and am so excited to advance my Spanish abilities.''
