Instructor is very energetic and enthusiastic. Conversation is interesting, and she stops to make necessary corrections to my Spanish.

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!
