I began learning Spanish with Ana as a complete novice 6 months ago - and now I am ready to translate Shakespeare! Actually not quite ….. but I am ready to confidently tackle train journeys, restaurants and taxi drivers and much, much more during my upcoming extended travels in Spain. This was my goal when I started with Ana and she has got me there and well beyond. As a 50-something year old engineer I was apprehensive about taking on the challenge of learning a new language. I should not have worried at all because Ana has made it a most enjoyable and rewarding experience. I cannot recommend LSWA highly enough.
I started learning Spanish with Ana just over six months ago. From the first lesson, I was so impressed by her approach to teaching as she is extremely professional but also has a brilliant personality. Ana makes lessons fun yet she is incredibly structured and organised. She takes the time to teach grammar, word and sentence structures so that I understand how the language works. She tracks my progress each week and sets just the right amount of homework. I have learned so much in just a few months - more than I ever learned in big classroom-style Spanish courses - and I'm excited about getting better and better with Ana's help!
My experience to begin with was of a very friendly and professional approach to learn a new language at whatever level I was at. By Ana welcoming me into her home I was immediately set at ease to make a go at speaking Spanish aloud. Although she does have an uncontrollably tendency to laugh whenever the language is absolutely butchered, it was all in great fun and it went really quick ; ). As a would be traveller, the learning material focus on what I needed and I felt it was very clear and easy to learn. The rest was up to me!... After only a few classes I would like to consider her as a friend. Thank you...
I started learning Spanish with Ana in 2013 as I was doing Spanish for my HSC and my objective, at the end of year 12, was to improve my fluency and follow a conversation. With the help of Ana, I have achieved my goals and thoroughly enjoyed every fun-filled class we have had together. She is a highly committed and friendly teacher and would recommend her to anyone!!
Since January 2014, I have been learning Spanish as one of my HSC subjects. Over the last 2 years I have been having lessons with Ana in order to learn everything I needed to get through HSC. Ana has not only drastically improved my speaking ability and language skills, but has also made every lesson very interesting and enjoyable. I have loved every class that we have had together as they are always different and fun-filled. Ana is a devoted and friendly teacher, and i have been privileged to learn Spanish from her.
