Great course structure and very nice instructor.
It was very educational. I really learned a lot. It was fun and interactive. Our teacher, Nelson, was very effective and fun. We loved him. We will be continuing our Spanish classes up till we finish Advance Conversational Course.
I had attempted to learn Spanish on my own and could not get past the verbs “Ser” and “Estar. I decided to enroll after a friend told me he was taking a class at Berges. He recommended Nelson Navarrate. I am glad that I got a place in Nelson’s Level 1 class. I am excited to taking a deeper dive into the Spanish Language because his enthusiasm, openness and humor put me at ease and made it easy for me to absorb his instructions. I’m look forward to more classes with Nelson.
Monica was very friendly and helpful. She pointed out nuances of the Spanish language when people inquired. I learned a lot of vocabulary and became comfortable speaking a new language.
This was a good beginner course, but I already knew about 1/2 of what we learned. I liked the live Q&A in class. Probably needed to have 1/2 session based on what we want reviewed before the exam.
Overall the course was well-structured and covered a lot of important topics that I'd hope to see at a beginner's level. It often moved a bit too quickly however and I found myself wishing more time was spent going through examples of concepts until we felt comfortable before moving on to new ones. Nevertheless, I did learn a lot, and for someone looking to become conversational quickly, this course does a good job of preparing for that.
