Because of my job as a management consultant without previous knowledge of Spanish, I could not participate in a course that took place regularly. I chose the spanish language courses that had the 3 years I could achieve the level B1 of The Common European Reference Framework . Along with the basic grammar and a general lexicon, we have combined in an intensive way current issues in economics, “Spanish for business”, Business, Vacation and Travel to Spain. Sylvia manages to share a fascination for learning of the language, through her professionalism, her personal charm, her thinking, and her prepared didactic with its varied learning content. The flexibility of the program makes it possible for me to keep my current job as Director of Acquisitions Management in the DekaBank, in order to keep the level, expand and consolidate my knowledge. The possibility of duplication of the Spanish spoken in Spain and the Latin American Spanish, the exchange of issues between the professional and private contents make classes absolutely and unconditionally recommended.

During my three month period in Frankfurt I was able to get in contact with LANGUAGES World Academy where I took a 2 week intensive German course.
I had the pleasure to take the course with another international student; this helped us both because both of us were studying German as a third language.
The course exceeded my expectations, the material used and the methods were always challenging but at the same time clear and understandable. The teacher that lead the course was 100 % focused and always in a helpful mood.
My next trip to Germany I will definitely take the second phase of the course that I started in LANGUAGES World Academy. I strongly recommend it to international students who want to or need to learn a different language: (Spanish, German, French etc).
Another important point to take is the time availability and flexible schedules the Academy offers.

In October 2009 I took 2 weeks to do a Spanish course for beginners as educational leave, “Bildungsurlaub”. I can only recommend this course in the warmest way, which has brought me a lot and has given me a good base to expand my knowledge. It has transmitted the knowledge in a very understandable way. I liked the course very much and once again I can only advise you to do the course it as educational leave (Bildungsurlaub).

My company financed my enrollment in the “Spanish for business” course, which was taught by Sylvia. Classes were held once a week for one hour and a half. The course lasted over a year (from mid-2007 to mid 2008). Sylvia was always preparing current economic issues to discuss. Actually, we talked about topics related to the economy through news and articles, which improved my speech and writing. Sylvia is an excellent teacher and she has facilitated my learning, because the lessons are very funny and interesting. When I needed special translation or invitations for my work, we also finished that during classes.
I already have recommended her on numerous occasions and have always received very positive feedback, so I highly recommend these classes.

My name is Charlotte, I am French but I have been living in Germany for 12 years. I speak German, English and, thanks to Sylvia, a little Spanish. In Frankfurt, I took 2 semesters of the “Spanish for beginners” course with Sylvia in 2007 in a . Thanks to her teaching and commitment, I have progressed rapidly. Sylvia gave us a guide to study. Despite the fact that we took the course after work, classes were not boring. In fact, I can say that she is a very dynamic teacher: she mixes grammar, vocabulary and conversation at any time. Sylvia is a qualified, friendly and relaxed person. She can motivate you and help you learn quickly. After 2 months, I visited Spain and I was very at ease when I was able to understand and speak Spanish. I work in Human Resources (training, management and development of skills). If I had to organize a course of Spanish, I wouldn´t hesitate to call her. I can only recommend Sylvia because of her intense process of learning and teaching of the Spanish language.
I took two courses of Spanish in Frankfurt and both times my teacher was Sylvia Navarrete. She is the best teacher I could wish for; her approach is modern and efficient. After one week my level of Spanish proficiency was very good. Mrs Navarrete prepared me to do my oral examination of Spanish, required by my company (Lufthansa). During the last year I learned grammar, comprehension and current issues.
Sylvia is very nice and open… it’s fun to study with her.
