I have your program Spanish Course 1. And find it to be pretty much what I need to improve my language skills. I’m a US expat living in Costa Rica and wish to speak properly here.

Your course gives me the challenge and instructional level I require to improve my language skills.

I have tried a few Language learning systems over the past 2 years, but have never really made much progress. Finally I found Maestro24, and bingo things started to sink in.

I still have the enthusiasm to use the system whenever I can and am able to use enough Spanish to visit Spanish only areas and make myself understood.
