Spanish Lessons

My lessons with Nancy have been tremendous in growing my language abilities. Starting off with some basic Spanish knowledge, Nancy assessed and catered to where I was at. Our classes together flow organically and I always leave feeling more confident in my abilities.

She is great at teaching the basics of grammar and building a solid foundation. You don’t have to memorize everything either, you practice as you go and really start to pick things up just from speaking and practicing in the lessons. I have a feeling I will be very good at Spanish by the end of the year. Not fluent but I will know a lot!

Really happy with Nancy’s teaching. She does early hours with me and we have done three classes so far. I am speaking more Spanish and feel comfortable practicing with her.

I have enjoyed taking Spanish from Nacey. My friend and I go once a week and we have had a blast learning Spanish. It has been really beneficial for the both of us. We are able to understand more Spanish. She is a great teacher and works with your schedule. Her lessons are always thoroughly planned and we have learned a lot.

I just moved to Houston 2 mos ago. I new I immediately wanted to sign up for Spanish lessons. I looked at two other companies before I decided to start my learning with Nancy. I could not have made a better choice. She is very attentive and patent. I love the videos and printable worksheets. I have to hear something multiple times before it sticks. Nancy recognized this immediately and adjusted my learning to meet my needs. Estoy muy satisfecha!
