    Liana is a great teacher. Her classes are always interesting and fun. The ways she explains the Spanish grammar is really amazing. She makes it really simple for you. Take her first FREE class and you’ll love it. I highly recommend her.

  • Irina Naydenko

    She is the best Spanish teacher I have ever had. She has a PhD in Spanish and vast experience in teaching. Her methods of teaching are awesome. She explains language grammar very simply and clearly. She created an individualized and interesting program for me so I wouldn’t be bored or overwhelmed. I like that her first lesson is free. I highly recommend her as a very experienced professional. She is the best teacher of Spanish language. Take the online class, it’s more affordable; you don’t have to deal with traffic and it’s pretty much the same class as in person.
