  • Quotes

  • Working with Lucila has been a huge help in preparing for my transfer to Puerto Rico. Her instruction style is very easy to follow. She mixes activities up to really work on reading, writing, speaking, and listening constantly. Her emphasis on verb tense has really improved my confidence in the language. Not only does she push me hard on learning the language, but she is also teaching me about the different customs and cultures among various Latin American countries. She often brings current events articles about Puerto Rico so that I can practice my reading and learn about the economy at the same time. She truly understands the value of not just the language but learning how to actually live and work in Latin America! Thanks so much! — Kern Woods
