As a medical professional, not knowing a bit of Spanish, the instructor made it easy to understand and fun to follow along by using the stories of Hector and Maria.

The course was informative and useful. I feel that I was exposed to a lot of material that will help me when conversing with my Spanish speaking patients.

I enjoyed the course immensely and will take more Spanish courses. Thanks!

This course was very helpful and had a lot of useful information in it. It was very refreshing to know that the instructor didn't expect us to know everything and be able to speak fluently at the end of the course. I enjoyed her teaching style and it made reading the lessons enjoyable. I would definitely recommend this course to my co-workers!! Great job everybody!

It was very helpful in my work as an RN. Looking forward to trying out my new language on Spanish speakers to see how well they think I did!

Thank you for this excellent course! It has been extremely helpful for me. I love your style of teaching.

Thank you for this course! It was very helpful. I'm still in the early stages of Spanish learning, and your approach, "Survival Spanish", emphasizing basic grammar/sentence structure and vocabulary learning, has helped me in ways I have not seen anywhere else. By not over-emphasizing complex grammar and verb conjugations in the beginning, it's been much easier to get a start just using the language to communicate, and build up confidence first.

I really, really enjoyed Ms. Tara! The way she involved you with the virtual families was great. There were serious moments, (those verbs), fun moments with Hector, Maria, and the Acostas and so much love with Javier and Pili. Just a wonderful, wonderful learning experience and I really did learn a lot. I always thought learning Spanish would be difficult and frustrating, but Ms. Tara made is easy and fun. Thank you so very much! Ms. Tara is an excellent instructor and I would recommend her class to anyone and everyone. Thank you!

This was the best foreign language class that I have ever taken! The content was paced well and very relevant to the health care field. The summary sheets and vocabulary lists along with the suggestions for supplemental reading were invaluable resources. The patient vignettes were fun and respected cultural differences. The teacher anticipated areas of confusion and provided guidance. I would recommend this course to any health care colleague working with Spanish speaking patients.

Wonderful course! Very approachable and not too difficult. Every person working in the medical profession who interacts with Spanish speaking patients should take this course!
