"Taking what could have been complex and making it simple. Separating the lessons or information into manageable 'chunks' that within each lesson items related and 'used' each other. The lessons were all relevant to what would/will realistically be used while visiting Portugal."
"I like the course materials. There are lots of written exercises which helped me to reinforce what I’ve learned. The Read Along and CDs also help to facilitate my progress."
"The workbook and CDs are great! Excellent tools I take the CDs with me while driving (long commute) to keep me learning Spanish."
"I thought the CDs were very good. The cards that accompany the CDs are very helpful. I carry them with me everywhere I go."
"These materials make all the difference in getting the right pronunciation practice and review or what we are learning in class. My books are well used and coffee stained. They travel with me everywhere."
"The workbooks/cds/website and classes have all been very helpful. My confidence is truly building and I am beginning to feel more comfortable communicating in this great language. I am very grateful for Maria's classes and I reccomend her to anyone who is thinking of learning the language for the first time or thinking of returning to learning the language."
