I met Erica when I moved to Madrid and started my PhD. Since I have been working many hours per day I did not have enough time to participate at scheduled spanish language courses. That is why I found the idea of online spanish classes very brilliant and useful for me! This method is very flexible, entertaining and very efficient. I truly recommend Erica as a spanish teacher and the learning method she offers! Good luck Erica and thanks for your classes!
Conocí a Erica cuando me mudé a Madrid y empecé mi doctorado. No tenía mucho tiempo para participar en clases de español. Por este motivo, me gusto mucho la idea de aprender español online. Es un método muy flexible, entretenido y eficiente! Recomiendo mucho Erica como profesora y le deseo mucha suerte en su trabajo! Además de ser una excelente profesora, es una chica muy encantadora! Abrazos!
I've had a lot of fun learning with Erica! I've improved and learnt a lot about Spanish culture that only a native can tell you and that's been really helpful, such as expressions and the exact way to say things despite what I was taught before.
I've never been bored in her classes and found this way of learning much better than being in class.
