I took 6 weeks of Spanish lessons with Hola Spanish Centre prior to going on an adventure tour in Peru. It really helped me to communicate with the locals: to bond with the porters on the Inca Trail, to order in restaurants and ask for directions when I got lost. It was a great, fast-paced and engaging teaching style by our Colombian instructor, Fernando.
For the past two months, I have been taking classes (Super Intensive – Beginner & Intermediate) at Hola Spanish Centre. The lessons are well-paced and my teacher, Ms Bolivia, is great. Ahora puedo escribir esto opiníon en español. (Now I can write this review in Spanish.)
Small class sizes and excellent teachers. Made for a wonderful learning experience. I will definitely sign up for the next level with Hola Spanish!
I just completed the Beginners 2 course and was very impressed with the organization of the course and the instructor. The class size is small which is great for learning and even in this beginner’s class there was an emphasis on speaking. The pace of the course also seemed just right for the once-weekly class. The instructor made every lesson fun and non-intimidating. Overall, a great experience and I’m looking forward to using my new language skills in an upcoming trip to Mexico. I’ll definitely be taking more courses here.
I am extremely impressed with the quality of instruction at Hola Spanish. The classes are small and comfortable. Guillermo is an excellent teacher: very knowledgeable, supportive, patient and fun.
I have also had two substitute teachers who were also excellent. I highly recommend Hola Spanish.
I have been studying at Hola’s Broadway campus in a number of formats over the past two years (regular, intensive, conversation), and it has been a great experience.
I wanted a firm grounding in the language, and Hola has delivered with classes that are fun and effective.
The well-paced levels and small class sizes make for quick progress. And the format allows the instructors some freedom to add their own embellishments, and adjust each class to student needs.
The instructors are engaging, patient, and encouraging. They have a knack for keeping things challenging without being intimidating.
I’m grateful for my progress in the language, but the best part is that I leave each class with a smile and a sense of joy — regardless of how I felt on my way in!
