I want to learn Spanish because I am moving to Colombia and I wanted to be able to understand and talk with people who live there. My experience at Berlitz has been wonderful. The people who work there have been extremely understanding in the difficulties of learning a new language. I have been provided with very useful materials that are easy to understand.
