"I took 3 weeks classes for 5 hours and left with the ability to function in Bolivia. I became a resident dj at one of the bars in La Paz and was able to make permanant friends (and 2 girlfriends,) in this city. My professor in EEUU is happy with my progress, and I am ready to take this skills home with me to continue learning and teaching. I found my teacher to be open to which ways work best and when I told him my focus was to understand and speak more of the sentences I need, rather than saying a few sentences perfectly, he listened. We progressed rapidly. He was both a good teacher and a fun person to be around and helped me with more than just my Spanish while I was here."
