Assignee Family relocating from Germany to Chattanooga, TN

“I am very happy with my instructor! She is very patient and her teaching skills are excellent. The idea of using small videos from the internet is helpful in enforcing what we learn during the class. Instructional material is fine and is relevant to learning conversation. May be the use of flash cards or cheat sheets could be helpful that I can refer after my class. Some basic writing can be introduced so we are a little familiar.”
