Our start

When I first started to learn Spanish many years ago, I wasn’t very good. At one point, once I had fulfilled my school’s language requirement, my teacher recommended that I stop taking her Spanish class. She felt that I didn’t have the ability to succeed and become truly fluent. I didn’t take her advice and I continued on.

The following year, something in me ‘clicked’. I became obsessed with Spanish and I started watching tons interviews of Shakira and other Spanish clips on Youtube or on Netflix. What changed was that the language suddenly became fun. I started to understand more and more and the feeling of wonder and amazement it gave me was insatiable (meaning I couldn’t get enough!).

By the end of the year, I had gone from being the worst in the class to the best in the class. I later went on to date a Spanish speaker and live in Spain for 2 years.

Learning Spanish completely changed the course of my life. It opened new doors, opportunities and relationships I never would have found if I didn’t know the language. Every day, I am grateful for the wonder and curiosity I have for languages. My goal is to help you improve your English so that more opportunities and beautiful experiences open up to you like they did for me.

Sincerely,

Courtney
