Ian & Peggy
We would like to express our satisfaction with the Spanish Conversation Group sessions that we attended, in which we practiced the language in a relaxed atmosphere with our very knowledgeable Spanish speaking leader. It was an experience that enabled us to acquire the everyday language and expressions of native speakers. We especially appreciated the fact that in a small group setting, we could ask questions at any time and get immediate information or clarification from the instructor, something that can’t be reasonably done in a large class. Perhaps nothing improves one’s language ability more than lots of practice in speaking face-to-face with a native speaker, and we had plenty of opportunity to do that, on topics of our own or of mutual interest. Also, we were hearing and being instructed in correct pronunciation at all times, so it added to our confidence and comprehension.
