Couldn't ask for more!

My teacher was absolutely great at simple conversation (I was a beginner), and she made every class enjoyable and interesting. Great activities! Dance class was perfect! The faculty and staff at ESTELAR are the best! Everyone is so kind, helpful, and fun. Couldn't ask for more in a school. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

A Great Experience, Wouldn't Change a Thing!

I loved Instituto Estelar Bilingue! Each day I took four hours of classes that were really useful for me because there was a lot of conversation, games, and activities that made it easy and fun to learn. My teacher was professional and super sweet, I still keep in contact with her and she is a good friend. On top of the excellent classes, there were a bunch of extra events that were really fun - I loved dance class and cooking class but my favorite thing was Spanglish. Spanglish was an event in the middle of the week where Spanish students and English students go to a local restaurant/bar and speak for half an hour in each language. It was fun because I met new people and really got to practice conversation in a relaxed atmosphere. I really loved everything about my experience with this school and I hope to return to visit in the future!

How can this program be improved?
To be honest, the only thing I would change is the amount of time I was there. I wish I could have had another week or two!!
