My husband and I moved to Cali several months ago and have each been taking individual classes with Lingua Viva 3x/week online since the quarantine started. At first we were disappointed that we wouldn't be able to meet in-person, but now we're completely happy with the online classes and have learned a ton. Daniela teaches both of us and we love her. She's patient and easy-going, and very effective in her teaching approach. We're at different levels and she has developed tailored curricula for each of us that have allowed us to make quick progress. She's also gone out of her way to be accommodating, friendly, and helpful as we are getting accustomed to a new city during this weird time, and her classes are honestly one of the highlights of our week. We've already done 20 classes each and just bought another package. Very highly recommended!

Highly recommended! I studied at Lingua Viva for over a month pretty much full time, alternating between two teachers for private courses, and it was a really productive time. I went from about an A2 to B2, so a serious jump. The teachers are really passionate and committed, and will tailor the syllabus to your needs. For me this involved a lot of work related language. I also liked the communal atmosphere of the school - it felt like a home away from home. I also did Skype courses which worked well and helped me practice before a language exam. The price for the quality is frankly amazing value too.

I attended classes at Lingua Viva for a month while visiting Cali. The school is great and the people there are even better! The school did a great job matching me with a teacher that was a great fit for me and I enjoyed coming to the school each day. The school is also in a great location. I highly recommend anybody interested in taking Spanish classes to strongly consider Lingua Viva, whether it be online or in person. They are great!

I want to thank Lingua Viva Spanish Institute and specifically Laura Mora Echeverry for allowing me to participate in the Conversation Club - Intermediate! She is very patient and knows exactly what she has to do to help us practice and manage the Club. Congratulations! for your initiative and I hope you continue with the same spirit and will!

I've been taking online courses with Dayron this summer, and the classes have been great! Dayron has seamlessly transferred in-person lessons to the internet. He's a very flexible and encouraging teacher, and I appreciate how he adjusts to what our class needs. Thank you, Dayron!

Dayron is an incredibly patient, kind, and talented professor. He tailors all of his classes to his students' needs, and I could not feel more grateful to have him as my teacher.

The Lingua Viva Spanish Institute is a great school. My teacher was Juan and he was an incredible teacher. He was very friendly, knowledgeable, and I learned a lot. He was very helpful with my learning and also took me out of my comfortzone with doing the virtual classes. I would definitely recommend them if you are trying to learn Spanish.

I enjoyed continuing with Juan Pablo after returning to Canada. I had never studied on-line before but it was seamless & helped a great deal. I will be recommending this to other friends as they prepare to travel next year once the pandemic is over.

I had 10 online classes in Lingua Viva with Daniela. She helped me a lot with basic grammar as I’m a very beginner in Spanish. The way she explained new material worked perfect to me and I feel much more confident now. After each class I had some homework to practice. As well she gave me some recommendations how to improve listening. I’m satisfied with results. ¡Muchas gracias!
