Reviews for: Oliver San Blas

I like when we learn more about each other with maps, where other classmates are from, what they do, or talking about how we are doing at the start of the class. But I enjoyed this whole week of lessons as well. Every day are little bites of learning and homework which is good. I am getting a bit overwhelmed at how much I know I have to learn though.

The structure of the lessons. Very well organized and good explanation and enough practice
The classes are really fun - all game forms are fun like Kahoot and also the break out sessions to know more about the other students using Spanish.

Oliver is really amazing with engaging with the students, best teacher I have ever met in Camino
I have a very good time with Oliver as he makes us all very comfortable even with our broken Spanish. Very patient, he gives us all an opportunity to speak as well as not do so and exit elegantly :)

Oliver is one of my favourite teachers at the school. His classes are so cool, he's always helpful, cheerful and keep explaining everything in different ways/aspects for us just to understand the essence of it. So attentive, remember everything and supports and inspires whenever you need it. :)
Oliver is an amazing teacher, he gives information very clear, the lessons are well structured and everything is easy to remember
Oliver's ability to be able to get over to us what we needed to know without difficulty. His classes were informative, fun and with just the right amount of everything to enjoy and learn a lot in the week.

Oliver gave my favourite classes so far! I really liked the lessons, the interactions, the activities! I learned and laughed a lot!
Learning different topics which enabled me to learn new spanish languages additionally practicing speaking all the time was educative as well

Oliver was my teacher for the second half of the class. The classes with him were fun and informative at the same time. Oliver is a real professional. And Oliver organized for us a very fascinating excursion through night Barcelona. I can recommend him highly enough.
