Student comments

Rating: 4.0/5.0

4.0
Deborah : "I loved being Javier's student. I thought it was interesting, conversational and fun, while also involving grammar and vocabulary. I would have liked to have the day broken up a bit more, with shifts. We had a 20 minute break in the 4 hour day. Perhaps changing teachers for the second half of the day, or changing the room, or activity would make it more interesting. Sitting in the same classroom for 4 hours with the same teacher is a bit long and unvaried."
