ALWAYS IMPROVING,

LEARNING, AND

HITING GOALS 

A. Howe, Cheltenham

I was very nervous at first as I had limited experience of learning Spanish with a teacher and was afraid of making a fool of myself. My previous learning was mainly self instruction via Duolingo and a couple of sessions with an online tutor using italki. I have found sessions with Yavanna not at all threatening and feel that we have developed a good rapport.

 

My confidence in speaking Spanish has improved considerably and I find myself thinking about words and phrases in Spanish throughout the week. I like to use metaphors. Learning Spanish with Yavanna I liken to being rescued at sea. Prior to Yavanna's sessions I was in a boat going around in circles but unsure as to which was the best direction to take. I contacted Yavanna and she came aboard, calmed me down and has taken over steering the boat. I may not be sure of where we will make port, but I am certainly enjoying the journey and learning lots on the way. I suppose for me it is about trust and I trust Yavanna to steer me in a satisfactory direction. If I have one concern it is about the learning rationale. I want to know what is the best/ most effective way of learning Spanish and I would welcome feedback on how I am progressing and how I can speed up my learning.

I would highly recommend Yav's Education Lab. I take 1:1 lessons, and I really feel that she has helped my confidence, my pronunciation and my overall knowledge to develop in a short space of time. She can tailor to your specific wants and needs, and I feel her lessons have very much achieved this. She is a wonderful teacher, encouraging and enthusiastic, and she makes you feel very comfortable, which is important when so many are paranoid about sounding silly in another language - none of that with Yavanna! .

My 1:1 tuition pays special attention to key areas of personal interest - accurate pronunciation and conversational Spanish. I highly recommend.

Yav is very friendly and very professional in her approach. Yav introduces herself in Spanish and speaks more Spanish then English during the session which I think is wondef. Yav is kind and has a warming aspect about her uses interactive tools and learns through play to begin with which engages the child a lot more.

As a beginner she has been very supportive in helping me with my pronunciation, which I really struggle with. We worked on formulating sentences both spoken and written as if I were in a formal setting meeting the person for the first time. She has also has helped me with my grammar whilst explaining how they translate into English alongside correcting my written work so it reads well. I can feel I'm growing with each lesson.
