I am a 53 year old South African woman who is bilingual in IsiZulu and English. Spanish is a new language for me, however, Sally and tutor Alberto's passion for the language, and love for teaching, makes me look forward to my one-on-one online lessons. After learning Spanish greetings and grammar basics, I can now independently construct short sentences, attempt conversations with native speakers, and follow some conversations. I read and attempt to translate notices on the bus, shops, and office buildings. All this happened over a 2-month period. Weekly homework helps with practicing what was learnt in class. Increasing vocabulary outside class is a must, because without it, conversing or following conversations is almost impossible. ¡Muchas Gracias, Sally and Alberto, eres la mejor!

My son has just started with Sallies Spanish School and absolutely loves it. It has been a seamless process from the moment I inquired with Sallie's Spanish School. There was an immediate response and professionalism from the beginning. My son was so excited to start lessons that Sally was able to schedule him with Maestra Geri within hours of our first initial contact. My son looks forward to meeting with Maestra Geri virtually every week. She makes the content fun and interesting for him, tailoring it to things he truly loves in order to keep him engaged. After each lesson he receives study materials to practice what he has learned and prepare him for his next lesson. Finding someone who is dependable, consistent, fun and engaging has made this process so wonderful. We are so very thankful to have found Sallie's Spanish School and look forward to many years of learning.

Our son is a HS senior and is taking Spanish for the 3rd year. He is a native Mandarin speaker, so learning Spanish while studying with English as a second language was hard on him. He struggled to speak. She has been able to make Spanish fun for him, to get him speaking, and help him improve his grades. She is also very helpful and responsive, and our son enjoys his lessons.

The teachers are excellent at what they do. Sally is a total professional and she explained everything to me in a clear, personable and concise manner. She is wonderful to work with. So far, both of my teachers have earned five stars or the highest stars possible. They are exceptional and Sally's business practices and standards are at the highest quality. This is an excellent school. I would recommend the school to anyone. There is no better Spanish school than Sallie's Spanish School. I am so impressed with everyone at the school and I am learning a lot at a good pace. The prices are reasonable and the quality is excellent.
