Jaye is an excellent tutor I have been learning with her for a relatively short period and been impressed with her attention to detail, ability to adapt to my strengths and weaknesses while still continuing to keep each lesson interesting and challenging. I am more than confident in my ability to go Spain order items and ask for directions.

It allows a person to travel to other countries, which is also a great gift. Most importantly, having a common language erases borders. It allows one to put others at ease.''
