"Thanks to you (Pensaris) for working with me during the past 2 years while I have lived here in Argentina and came here knowing basically no Spanish at all except how to say “hello”, “goodbye”, “thank you” ! I am not fluent by any means but I can read, write, understand and speak Spanish better because of your classes." Erin S.
