I’ve been a student at speakeasy for a month and a half now, and it’s been going even better than I could’ve expected. We started learning practical Spanish from day 1 and by the end of the first week I was already able to have basic conversations with cashiers, friends, and people I met while out and about. There’s no better motivation than being able to use the words and phrases you learn in class to immediately connect with people. Of course the quality of learning also stems from the quality of teaching, and I can’t speak highly enough of my professor at the school, Cristina Revenga. In addition to a varied pedagogical approach (which keeps the whole class engaged for 4 hours at a time) and an endless amount of enthusiasm for the subject, she’s also a great source of knowledge about Spanish culture. She’s constantly recommending songs, books, food, festivals and other ways to engage with the language and culture outside of class. My classmates also bring a diverse range of backgrounds to the classroom. It’s great learning about Camino de Santiago with an architect in class who can talk about the history of Romanesque architecture in Spain, or learning about linguistic similarities between Spanish and Swedish, Dutch or German from students from those countries. Basically, if you’re interested in learning Spanish and are curious about taking an immersive approach, you can’t go wrong with this academy.
