    Thank you Paul and Linda! These have been great basic lessons and I have saved them all to work on. Not only were they great for the knowledge factor but they were super entertaining the way you presented them. I would definitely give you the Best Actor Oscar Paul and to Linda, Best supporting Actress Oscar. Mucho gracias to both of you for what you do.

    Thank you so much for these lessons!! I am 68 and the memory is tough for me. But I practice every day with your videos. I have purchased a casa in the Yucatan and love it. I will love it more when I can communicate in Spanish with my wonderful yucatan neighbors!!

  7. Hi Paul,
    It is incredible! I am taking my private lessons for an almost a year. My teacher who is native and amazing. She teaches at Warren Hardy school. My passive vocabulary is much bigger than my active one. Understanding natives and speaking are two things that is still problematic:). Your lessons are unique…I am learning great techniques and tips that have already helped me tremendously! Love your story…it is amazing. Looking forward to many more lessons. Thanks for sharing your knowledge and experiences. Kind regards, Irina
