"I have been with Live Lingua for the past 1 year, learning Spanish from an amazing teacher named Ivбn Sбnchez-Gil. The transaction with Live Lingua are all through a very interactive & user friendly website, and the experience so far has been very good & transparent. My teacher Ivan Sanchez is a very qualified teacher. Apart from his expertise on the language, fantastic way of teaching, he is also extremely patient with a novice like me."

"I have been learning Spanish for some time and have reached the Intermediate standard, but I wished to be able to converse with ease with native speakers on a range of subjects. I have worked with an excellent on line course and attend an adult course led by an excellent teacher, but it became clear that to advance significantly, I needed on-to-one tuition, which is expensive. I found Live Lingua, which seemed to offer an affordable solution. The first teacher, I was introduced to, although , doubtless very competent, was not the person for me. Live Lingua connected me then with Ivan Sanchez. We have had a series of really enjoyable conversations, which have given me greater confidence. I still have a way to go. If you are serious about learning a language to a high standard, this is the way to do it."

"I've used Live Lingua for over a year. My teacher is Ivan who is a native Spanish speaker. He is always well prepared and always pushes me to achieve beyond my expectations. I have been thoroughly impressed with Live Lingua and the organisation across all areas of oral, listening, talking and comprehension. I would have no hesitation in recommending Live Lingua at all levels. ¡Buena Suerte!"

A special thanks to Ivan for his knowledge. The support stuff is also very helpful, a big thank you to Matt for making this learning experience just great."
