We understand that many people are ambivalent about signing up for online Spanish lessons. What if you don’t get your money’s worth?
In this article, we talk to Alix Braverman, a Value Consultant in Google’s New York office. Alix has studied Spanish before, but she reached out to Dynamo Spanish for lessons to keep her skills fresh while living in New York. At the time of our conversation, Alix had been studying with Dynamo Spanish for seven weeks, so we sat down to see what she thinks of her experiences working with us.
