They are well qualified and only speak in Spanish so it's complete immersion. The atmosphere is relaxed which makes it easy to learn. Sometimes monkeys or sloths come by... More

I spent two weeks at the Academia de Español D'Amore in January 2014. This was my first formal Spanish training since university many years ago. Each day, I spent four hours in a formal classroom setting. The classes were small (3-5 students) and adapted to our comprehension levels. Our instructor, Keilyn, is an excellent teacher and while she is very... More
