"After moving to Austin from Wisconsin three years ago, I got a job working in a local barbeque chain. About 3 hours into my new job, another employee said to me, "¿Como se llama?" At that point I knew I was in trouble.
So I started researching
Spanish classes on line. ACC? Ugh. Too boring sitting in a classroom. Been there, done that, still don't remember anything from what we studied. Then I saw Rapid Spanish and I thought I would give it a shot. I started and didn't stop. I went through all thelevels and learned sooooo much.
One day I returned to the original store where I started and was speaking (in Spanish) to some employees with whom I had never been able to communicate. One of them said " You can speak Spanish now!"
Yup, I can speak Spanish now and (as a result) have been promoted to management!
The methods Barry uses to teach are awesome. There are so many activities and fun things we do in class it just breezes by.
I have gotten more compliments on my Spanish and how it has improved than I can count. My Spanish speaking employees are impressed by how quickly I have learned. You don't even realize you are learning until one day you will say-HEY! I can speak Spanish!!"
