I have been studying Spanish with Juan Carlos Ayarza for 4 years and have become quite fluent. I am certain that I would be able to get around a Spanish-speaking country without a problem. Before I found Language Interaction, I took a semester of Spanish at NYU and finished it knowing how to conjugate verbs, but my ability to speak was nonexistent, as a trip to Spain proved.
Juan Carlos makes learning fun. His method is sensible and includes grammar, conversation and writing. Only Spanish is spoken in the classes but at the student's level. It's hard to believe how he does it, but my progress has been amazing. A year after I started studying with Juan Carlos, I went to Costa Rica and spoke Spanish and was delighted at how much I knew.
I look forward to my classes. He has also begun a conversation group once a week in which we play games in Spanish, such as Scrupulous. He makes it fun but this class has helped me with my grammar while I was enjoying myself. I guess I could say that about my whole Spanish learning experience. - Susan R. New York, NY -
I was looking for a Spanish class that would get me to actually speak Spanish and this does it! I needed to learn conversational Spanish for work and, in just over a year, I am able to really have conversations in Spanish, with Spanish speakers. The classes are all conversational with a unique approach to learning grammar and vocabulary that builds on itself as you go through the class. Highly recommended! - Shally B. Manhattan, NY -
