“I was looking for Spanish lessons for a very specific reason and I really wanted the lessons tailored for me. I did a google search and then contacted a number of people advertising Spanish Lessons. Alena from London Language Studio responded to me immediately. When we spoke, she asked lots of pertinent questions and seemed really interested in what I was doing. I felt immediately that I could relate to her and that we would get on well. It was very important to me that I felt comfortable with my instructor. So, I arranged to spend an hour with Alena so that she could establish what level I was at and find out more about my objectives. As I was driving to my first session, I was wondering why I was travelling for over an hour for my lesson.
But within 5 minutes of meeting Alena, I knew I had made the right decision. She is very warm and made me feel very comfortable. I told her my story of how I went to work in an orphanage in Mexico over Xmas and New Year and it had changed my life. I wanted to learn Spanish so that I can go back to Mexico and spend time with the children and I was also in the process of setting up a charity to help the under privileged children in Mexico. Alena really empathised with me, which meant a lot.
We agreed that I should start having the one to one language workshops which last for five hours. When I returned for my first workshop, Alena had spent hours preparing material tailored around me communicating with the children and terms I would need in the orphanage.
I have found the one to one tuition invaluable, I never would have learnt as much if I had gone to a normal class. And not only has the tuition been invaluable, it has been great fun, Alena has a great sense of humour and the time flies past. She never makes me feel stupid and I feel totally at ease and relaxed. I have the attention span of a gnat so it is a testament to Alena that I look forward to the lessons.
I am going back to Mexico now, much more confident because I can communicate. When I come back, I will continue with my Spanish and as Alena has made it so much fun and easy, I am also considering doing another language, you never know, maybe I’ll learn them all!!
Thanks Alena, I am so glad I found you!! You really have gone over and above and I appreciate it.”
