My experience with Columbus Spanish Place is that it is a wonderful place to take classes. Some of the reviews talks about the classes being in complete immersion as a negative but what is a better way to learn a language. It is the closest thing we can simulate that experience outside of moving to a Spanish speaking country.The teachers are wonderful and very patient. We work on practical skills that can apply to everyday life while challenging us to learn the grammar of the language.It is very intimidating at first since class is in 100% Spanish. However, the more effort you put in for class reaps a bigger reward.I am currently taking my 4th session after learning Spanish on my own for 3 years and this place has definitely helped me get to the next level. At this pace, I truly do believe that I can become as close to fluent as possible.
