I needed to learn some Spanish in less than a month as I was vacationing in Mexico City and staying with a couple who spoke virtually no English.

I had not taken any lessons or courses in many years. April was so patient and pleasant with me. She never made me feel uncomfortable or pressured. She taught me simple sentences in the present tense, greetings, and some cultural tips for the Mexican culture.

I enjoyed my lessons very much and they helped me to communicate with my hosts in Mexico City a lot easier.

I highly recommend April Beck Moreno if you need Spanish lessons or English as a second language.
