What They're Saying...
“I have observed hundreds of language classes in the U.S. and abroad. Elissa at Express Fluency is among the best language instructors I’ve seen– she is able to teach high-quality Spanish in a way that is joyful and with immediate and powerful results. I have never seen students so engaged and making such speedy and expansive progress as in the Express Fluency workshop.”
~ Melisa Cahnmann-Taylor, PH. D, professor of language and literacy education, University of Georgia
“If you’re looking for a great way to immerse your team in an engaging and valuable experience, this is one I personally recommend. We came away able to speak more Spanish than we would have ever imagined. Somehow they combine improv comedy, the Socratic method, and theater, turning the session into an experience that has everyone on the edge of their seats and even dancing in the aisles.”
~Luke O’Neill, business consultant, Gloucester, MA
"¡Fantástico! There was absolutely no pressure, and the weekend was so much fun that most of us started participating and trying our newfound skills within minutes. Those who preferred to stay quiet learned a lot, too, because Elissa uses pantomime, props, and laughter to reinforce the learning. I so enjoyed learning something new again."
~Betsy Schmidt, professor, UMASS Amherst
"This class is extremely fun and extremely productive! I am shocked how much Spanish I have learned without the drudgery of rote memorization or boring exercises. This is the way language is meant is meant to be acquired! I have attended several weekend intensives and intend to sign up every time they come around."
~Terry Edelman, musician, Brooklyn, NY
"The course was fantástico and way beyond my expectations. I thought I would learn a few words and get some sense of the language but feel I came away with a real feeling and grasp for how the language works and tons of vocabulary that is effortless to remember. I feel well-prepared for my upcoming trip to Spain."
~Ken Manning, psychologist, Sudbury, MA

A month ago I had a powerful experience crossing the border from Ecuador to Colombia. While I was aware of the situation in Venezuela, the enormity of it struck me when I found 1000s of Venezuelans in line at that border crossing. The line wasn't moving. There were so many people-- … [Read More...] about Venezuelan Interview Project
