The beginners class was perfect for someone like me, a complete beginner. Rolando is the best instructor, very patient and extremely knowledgeable in both Spanish and English. I look forward to Level 2 in the spring.
The course was a helpful introduction to Spanish. We did a lot of repetition of new words/sounds and going over homework in class. Towards the end of the course we begun practicing short dialogues and interactions, on the topics of our likes/dislikes etc.
I have used Duolingo over the years to try to learn and have picked up some decent vocab, but after taking the Level 1 class at Berges I have so much more knowledge and understand Spanish so much better. Can't wait for Level 2!
The class was impactful, The environment was respectful and I retrieved lots of knowledge.
We were pushed to memorize the vocabulary and conjugation to form statements. This was highly valuable and though hard at times, it was appreciated.
Overall the class was great. The speed was easy to follow and the booklet was super helpful.
