Sol is a VERY gifted teacher—I have studied with her for years and feel so fortunate to have had her expert instruction. She pays attention to every aspect of the dance and makes sure you get the basics while pushing you to do more. I love her choreography. She is also an extremely talented dancer.
Irene
Sol is such an amazing teacher, her classes are passionate, fun and of course educational. She also gives students the opportunity to perform with live musicians and even if you are a beginner, you feel like you are already a flamenco dancer. She is the best teacher in New York.
Patricia
Sol is a fabulous, top-notch instructor. She is very passionate about the dance and has the ability to make one feel as if they must start taking classes once they see her perform.

Esther is an excellent teacher. Patient, funny and creative. She meets you where you are. Highly recommended.
Margaret
Instructor is very energetic and enthusiastic. Conversation is interesting, and she stops to make necessary corrections to my Spanish.
Marc M.
Esther is a great teacher and I highly recommend her, especially to those who want to improve their fluency and to those (like me) who are just too afraid to start speaking Spanish. Lessons with her are always fun and interesting, and she always knows how to explain everything in a simple and understandable way!

Ra is so great. She is patient and really knows her stuff. Definitely flexible in scheduling and she is so great with teaching my daughter.
Arianna L.
I elected to choose an online Spanish teacher for my daughter Arianna who is nine years old - after unsuccessful locating a local Spanish speaking class/teacher. Haven't had any experience with online teachers, I asked Take Lessons to recommend a Spanish native speaker from Puerto Rico. I needed to find someone who understands and is very familiar with the pronunciation of the Latin dialect. Ra's focus is conversational language; however, she was more than willing to take on the challenge of starting from the beginning with the basics, such as the alphabet, number, months, etc. and building into conversational sentences with Arianna. She is extremely easy to interact with, soft-spoken, and processes a genuine love of teaching. My daughter looks forward to their weekly meetings while embracing her Latin roots. We are immensely pleased with Ra. We would highly recommend her without reservation. Sincerely, The Lopez Family

Ra is great!

Online Spanish Teacher

I have been teaching Spanish lessons to all kind of students since I came to the United States seven years ago. I was born in Estella (Spain), an hour away from San Millán de la Cogolla, where the first written words in Spanish have been found, so my Spanish is as authentic as it gets. I can teach emphasizing grammar, pronunciation or conversation, and always adapting my teaching style to students' necessities as I was taught during my psycho-pedagogy classes at Universidad de Navarra.

My lessons are fun and straight to the point. You will never run out of materials to learn, which will always be tailored to your needs. Time is of the essence and I carefully select the topics based on your weaknesses so that your improvement is fast and steady. If you have specific requests, like preparing for a test, homework or learning a tune, I develop a plan with you so that you can achieve your goals. Learning is a process that many compare to a trip, so let's meet and embark in this travel ...

"I have been taking Spanish lessons over the phone with Hilda for about seven months and I can't recommend her highly enough. She is intelligent, engaging, funny ...and she makes you work hard! She certainly inspires me to do my homework... I don't want to let her down. I couldn't speak a word of Spanish when I started with her, and now I am getting ready for a trip to Mexico and feel confident enough to guide my family around. Hilda is a joy to work with- I highly recommend."

"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."

15 Easy Ways to Practice Spanish Throughout the Day

Learning a new language shouldn't be limited to textbooks and coursework! Here, tutor Kaitlin W. shares her (easy) ideas for practicing Spanish throughout the day...  I don't come from a Spanish-speaking family, nor is my family from a country where Spanish is spoken. Yet every time I open my mouth to speak Spanish, I'm asked where I am from. I have a near-native accent that leaves little trace of my Anglo roots. I often make people guess what country I'm from, and I've heard every …
