This online Spanish course is different. Lessons have lots of examples and simple explanations. Audios and videos with colorful pictures make the course entertaining. I have taken lots of Spanish courses over the years. They can get into nitty gritty details that can be confusing and have little practical use in day-to-day Spanish. This is not your typical Spanish course. Worth it!Read Less

This online course was really interesting to me. I studied Spanish in the US and I did not really know much about Castilian Spanish beyond the fact that it was spoken in Spain. I had no idea Spanish from Spain could be so different! The course was very informative, well structured and with practical examples. Satisfied.Read Less

I thoroughly enjoyed The Castilian Factor course. I was especially interested in the historical background, and learned about the diverse cultures of each Spanish region. I had no idea there were so many different dialects! I discovered each region contributes to the Castilian dialect. There are fun quizzes, and helpful resources offered along the way throughout the course. Being a beginner Spanish learner, I acquired a great deal of useful and practical information I can use on my travels to Spain. I appreciated the printable worksheets, and would like to see more added along the way. I would highly recommend this course! CatherineRead Less
