We will make sure that you have fun learning your language. We have specialized programs that will make sure that you practice speaking. I have been teaching languages for 35 years if you want to learn English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, or Polish. I am your guy. You will be speaking in no time. There will be a little grammar but just enough to help you understand. I accomplish this through games and activities instead of having your head stuck in a book; you will live in that language when doing a class.
