Insider tips about what future students should not miss
Ask beforehand where your teacher is from. I went all the way to Spain to get a teacher from Argentina. Recommend not taking courses/classes from the teacher. I think it would be better to take classes at a school. My teacher was not patient with me. She refused to slow down her rate of speech in order for me to better understand. She told me "nobody talks that way."
I was not very happy with my teacher from the beginning but I decided to "stick it out" because I thought it would get better as I learned the language. BIG MISTAKE! She treated me with such impatience that I couldn't believe she was really a teacher. The idea of living with your teacher was so appealing but the reality for me was a nightmare.
