Loved the instructor! I honestly wasn’t expecting much for an hour and a half course, so I’m not totally disappointed. However, I felt majority of the class was improvised on the spot based on attendee answers/questions, rather than a more structured plan of need-to-know scenarios for travelers. The resource guide that was provided outlines a lot of this, but would have been nice to go through more of it together for more context. Still helpful though! Grazie!

I enjoyed the class very much. The instructor Dmitri was of course very knowledgeable about the language, and also is a good teacher. He was well-organized, moved the class at an appropriate pace, and added interesting and useful information that is not in textbooks. The venue was comfortable and the class size was perfect. The course description accurately reflected the level of the class.

It's a rolling admission, so the high beginners really have to catch up on some of the basics. Half of the class was conversation-focused, and the other half more grammar and reading. Very convenient combination, and the pace is good too. The room was really cold though.

A fantastic class! The instructor was patient, articulate, creative in her approach, and hilarious. Her approach to the class was unique and she balanced teaching with wit and made me laugh at myself when I simply could not pronounce something. Refreshing to be in a class were curiosity and laughter are used as tools for learning. Will take again for sure.

The class was more advanced than I anticipated, all the more underscored by the number of sessions that this class already had together. That said, the instructor was quite pleasant and the class by and large had reached a level in which they could interact well with the lessons and the teacher. So.....I will take the Beginner II class which I think should prove reasonable. If there are materials/homework that was assigned at last meeting that could be emailed to me, I would review them. At first impression, the organization appears a combination of very good qualities: friendly, capable, earnest and professional. Thank you. See you on July 7. Let me know if you need anything else from me at this juncture. Joe Olha

I thought this was great. There was only one other student in my class so the teacher made the lesson very personalized to where we were traveling. Only criticism was that the materials provided during class could use some revisions and it would be helpful to receive additional information on topics that couldn’t be covered during class time. Overall, definitely recommend this class for someone traveling to a non-English-speaking country and hoping to learn a few key words or phrases to help them get by.

The class itself is great! The 4 star instead of 5 is for coursehorse giving me a confusing schedule of 9am to 8pm. I waited outside the ABC language office from 9am to 9:30am only to find out that the first class is at around 10: 30am! The class itself is only one and a half hour long.
