Conversational Spanish Classes in the Bay Area:
Thank you Maria, for everything you’ve thought me to this point in my Spanish. Having parents who came from Mexico and a father who thought learning English was hard and who decided not to teach his children Spanish has been a tough experience for me of Mexican descent. The book and the CDs are great and exceptional. Something I can continue to use for years.
