Reviews for Mariu Álvarez Gijón
I loved that Mariu didn’t have us to as much pareja work but instead utilized google drive so we could do some excercices on our own time.

I really love how much we get done in each class, I also went from believing I wasn't good at speaking to realising I knew more than I thought! Speaking only in Spanish in class made me feel way more confident and has helped a lot.

I enjoy the format of the course. Lots of student talk time. I like that we don't use a book. The handouts are excellent and the activities and conversation useful for every day conversation.

Mariu is energy and attention to detail. She also divided the study partners (during classes) very evenly, and this helps to get to know each other and practice more.

Mariu is always really nice and answers the questions of every student. I really enjoyed the lesson and the things we did were always much fun. The homeworks we got we’re very helpful to repeat the content of the lesson. I am very happy that I learned that much Spanish since I started my course.

Mariu seems really nice and wanted to help us learn. The topic for this week the prompts for the speaking activities were interesting. I really liked the game we played on the last day (the speaking board game).
