The course was great as far as materials and the instructor. I just found 90 minutes to be a very long time to commit on a weekly basis. I’d prefer an hour long course.
Julia is great. The curriculum works well. I would have valued a bit more learning around everyday phrases and some basic aids to communicating, such as what I believe is a very commonly used verb quierer and tips like tener que. I am now learning about these in a different format that I am trying, which is more about learning to speak and comprehend, quickly. I suggest including the key verbs --- with reflexives, of course, we need llarmarse and levantarse, but do we really need to prioritize verbs for shaving and putting on makeup? Nonetheless, I am using what I learned with Julia a lot, and I would recommend to anyone the foundational benefits provided by Berges and Julia.
I was in a class with some great students and we had a very wonderful and patient instructor Alan Z. He made learning Spanish fun and interesting.
This course was simply superb! The format is simple yet, challenging. Nick Garcia is an amazing teacher, easy going, kind, patient, and very knowledgeable.
The lesson format is cumulative. Each weeks assignment would lead to not only a comprehensive understanding of the elementary basic use of sentence structuring and beginners conversation, but also works to build confidence in the student. I was very pleased with my progress and the ease by which the course was taught. I have signed up for the 2nd session with Nick- Highly recommend!

The course was enjoyable and helpful in keeping me focused. At times it went too quickly, but Edgardo was always willing to clear up misunderstandings. I felt motivated and confident enough to register for the next level.
Course was easy to follow and taught well. Homework was just enough to understand the concepts.
