    "I like everything about the course. It is interesting, varied and well structured. The personalised corrections are excellent and really helps one to learn. It is also great value for money and the daily bite sized exposure, via email to the Spanish language cannot but help to improve one’s Spanish. The book, Amantes del Español is again, very well structured with clear print and great illustrations. The question is, What is there not to like about this course?"

    "Maria's Compass Spanish arrives every day without fail, prompting me to delve into my Spanish ability. The lessons are in bite-size chunks, so don't overwhelm. There is a good variety of video, audio, and gentle prodding to master the irregular situations. The face-to-face language sessions with lovely Maria are also very helpful and she is assiduous in noting all the words (many in my case!) which the student doesn't know. It is very good value, and I highly recommend Compass Spanish"
