It is a pleasure to study and learn Spanish at LAE. I have been taking private conversational classes online since January 2021 and I have made so much progress with my level of confidence in using my Spanish. My teacher, Lorena, has the right mix of being nurturing, of being present and engaged, and of holding high expectations for language practice. She has created a low stress environment for me so that I feel comfortable to take risks and make mistakes. I aim to achieve a high level of Spanish and Lorena and LAE have been a vital part of helping me work towards my language learning targets. LAE, and Karmen, the business administrator, are incredibly friendly, fair, and accommodating! I cannot recommend LAE highly enough.
