" I've taken multiple Spanish classes through the years. I have to say that I learned more from Lake Norman Language Academy in just the few short weeks than I learned throughout my high-school and college years. If you really want to learn how to speak the language, this is the place to go."

"Abigayl, as we near the end of my first Spanish course I wanted to tell you how much I have enjoyed learning with you. At my age, I must say that I was somewhat hesitant and intimidated starting back to school. However, your style of teaching calmed me from the very first class. The learning is non-threatening and a lot of fun. I look forward continuing. Thank you for all of your help."
