My family including my two teenagers spent a few days studying Spanish as Casco Antiguo. My husband and I are complete beginners and Erick was so patient and knowledgeable. He helped us learn the basics in a few short days. We are able to interact shop keepers and locals on our final day. Our teenagers had a blast, which is saying a lot for class on vacation. They are more advanced and became more confident speaking in conversation. On the last day their instructor sent them on a fun 'scavenger' hunt around Casco Viejo. They interviewed a police officer and navigated their way around the city asking the locals for help. We are definitely looking forward to returning.
