My online lesson was great! Carmen is excellent in setting up a study plan to speak Spanish. Two times when I practiced my Spanish with Spanish speaking individuals, I felt confident in speaking, even though I have a long way to go before I am fluent, I just did it! It was a great feeling. Thank you carmen for encouraging me to take that first step in speaking. Just do it!

Carmen was very patient as I tried to logon and she immediately got me assistance. I have only had one lesson but I think Carmen is a good fit for me

I have tried to learn Spanish for many years, and yes I learned a lot of vocabulary, grammar, and history --but I still cannot speak Spanish. When I joined takelessons and chose Carmen for my Spanish instructor, I have learned more in one week than all those classroom lectures put together. Carmen assesses my Spanish knowledge/level and is tailoring the class specifically for me. She is also patient and understanding. I look forward to my next lesson, and I amexcited to see my progress over the next several lessons!

Senora Lasten is completely committed to her students. She quickly assesses the beginning student's skill and customizes on the fly the lessons pace, while maintaining the lessons objective. She's a joy.

I have been taking lessons from Carmen for almost a year and I am truly amazed at my progress. She is a firm believer in developing conversation as a way to improve vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation skills. I am blessed ot have her as my teacher and friend. I highly recommend Carme to EVERYONE!!

I started taking classes with Carmen last year as birthday gift to myself. Boy...what a gift it has been!!! Carmen is by far the best Spanish instructors I've ever met. She's always on time, prepared and very patient. Her encouraging teaching style and care for me has been invaluable. I would not take lessons with anyone else...anywhere.

I give Carmen 5 stars for sure! I tried multiple times to learn Spanish from books and adult education classes but didn't get anywhere. I finally feel like I am making great progress with being able to read, understand, and especially speak Spanish!
Carmen is organized, very patient, and constantly encourages me while I am trying speak the language. In the last nine months I have improved beyond what I ever thought I could. I highly recommend Carmen!
