    Learning with Igor was a blast. Not only did he make the course fun and practical, I was able to use everything I learned when I went on vacation to Europe. I would highly recommend his class if you want to start speaking quickly and not just translate in your head.

    We opened a new food delivery service in Baja Mexico and hired GLL to teach our staff Spanish. They were able to get everyone speaking the basics in a month and now we are able to handle orders and do business in Spanish. Not only were classes effective, but they were super fun. Muchas Gracias Igor! Michelle & Barry from Kitchen Off the Grid
