Review

I found this course to be very helpful. I took a Spanish class in college, but I learned more from this course than I did in a semester of college. My son is almost sixteen and has taken many years of Spanish, and I was able to impress him with my new knowledge. Great Job, I was honestly not expecting to come away with much from this short course. I can actually communicate with my son and others. This is awesome for all teachers. Thank you!
