Terrible experience. Couldn't connect online, 20 minutes after start time called him and he tried to assist, but ended up doing a "phone lesson" which consisted of a question and answer time where I had to come up with my own questions. To conclude we were told to go out and take some pictures on our own and learn from experimenting on our own taking pictures of all kinds of things. We could then download them, send to him, and he could critique.
Not what I expected. Not necessarily his fault, but Going to ask for refund

when I made an appointment, I asked if Sergey was familiar with my camera and they said yes. It seemed new to him. But after talking about my fijifilm x100F, I am returning the camera. So overall I did like Sergey and look forward to my next Hour

"Thank you Gregorio, I finally had the experience of not being in the dark. You are shedding light on my singular path to learn Spanish. Your understanding of what I need to progress is very quick and intuitive. The way you explain grammar is so helpful, in a short time I was able to get past years of confusion from reading books and listening to videos!
One slight problem is that, While Takelessons.com is doing a fantastic job of using digital communication, There are still some technical issues that have made it difficult to learn how to connect. What seems to be missing is more tutorials for people like me to get familiar with social media.
Otherwise it was just what I needed! Thank you."

10 Must-Know German Expressions for Traveling Abroad

Do you have a trip planned to Germany? Traveling abroad is an exciting adventure as it can open your eyes to new customs, cultures, and people. While the experience is often amazing, there's one thing many people don't think about before they go—the language barrier. You'll find that there are many English-speaking people in Germany, but you won't always be able to identify them. Instead, it's best to have a few German expressions memorized or written down before you go. That way, if you …
