Testimonials from Students
Liz and Lucan (Sydney, Australia)
We studied Spanish with Aida for four hours a day for two weeks and learnt more than we had ever learnt in the various short courses we had undertaken before traveling to South America. Aida always prepared interesting and challenging lessons and her years of experience as a teacher made learning with her easy. She is passionate about languages and is always keen to exchange stories and ideas about other cultures and the time we spent with her each day always went by far too quickly. After two weeks of lessons with Aida our level of Spanish and our confidence improved greatly enabling us to connect with people and experience a whole other side of Latin American culture. We remember our time in Sucre fondly and can't wait to get back to see her. We can't recommend her enough!
Omar and Robbie (England)I took four-hour Spanish lessons with Aida every day for two weeks while I was on a visit to Sucre.
Aida was punctilious and professional; after the first meeting she came prepared with lessons and exercises carefully tailored to my abilities. I take the view that learning a language should be pleasurable and free of stress – in short, as a child would learn – and Aida made our meetings fun and enjoyment as well as rich learning experiences.
My intermediate Spanish improved enormously over the period – I have no hesitation in recommending Aida – she is the finest.
Anna Chan (Canada)Aida is a born teacher! She is able to explain grammar so that even the dumbest of fools can understand. As a native spanish speaker who herself studied English for many years, she knows the trials and tribulations that come with learning a new language. As a result, she is very patient and uses various methods of teaching to always keep the class new and exciting. It is easy to see she is very passionate about languages, cultures, people and teaching. Not only does she challenge her students in the classroom, but Aida takes interests in getting to know her students and involving them in everyday porteno activities, whether it be a field trip to the casa rosada or the local hot spot, outside of classroom.
I took classes with Aida for several weeks and her personality won me over. Not only is she a wonderful, creative teacher, but a fun-loving, exciting professional! I would HIGHLY recommend Aida to students of all levels.
