I am having a great time on Spaniskype with my teacher not only because of her proficiency but also because of the intriguing methods we use every time we are having classes. We play various kinds of games with Spanish words, phrases and grammar, together with interesting videos, movie cuts and placards that help me a lot on memorizing. We also met each other in real life after several classes on Skype! Ana is so adorable and so nice! She is the best Spanish teacher I ever had. Now I have more interest in learning Spanish as well as practicing in everyday life about different topics. My Spanish improves so quickly when talking with a native speaker in just two weeks. It is truly a brilliant decision to choose Spaniskype and to learn with Ana.
Working as an internet marketeer in Belgium, I like innovative ideas to learn new things. But being able to learn so much just by talking to someone on Skype wasn't one of them. While most people use Skype for online meetings, Ana knows the ins and outs of Skype for educational goals, sharing documents and screens and implementing interactive conversations and exercises. As a master in Teaching with more than 6 years of experience, she also has a particularly interesting way to keep me focussed on the material at hand. After already following a traditional Spanish language course in Belgium (that I didn't follow through, because I was a bit bored), I made a lot of progress with Spaniskype in just 10 sessions of 1 hour. Having an experienced, native, private Spanish teacher at my fingertips that I can connect with from anywhere in the world, is probably the single best way to take my Spanish language skills to the next level!A.M.

I teach undergraduate English classes at the University of Shiga Prefecture in Japan; I also run an online language and team-building project called SkypeRead (www.tensentences.com). I am British, my wife is Japanese, and we have two children aged 12 and 9.
Ana Hernandez Iranzo has taught weekly Spanish classes, via Skype, to both our children since February 2013. Since day one, she has consistently achieved results that have completely exceeded our expectations.
She developed an extremely strong rapport with both children almost immediately. This was particularly impressive because she had never met them in person, and neither of the children (especially the youngest one) had, until that time, enjoyed using Skype.
Thanks to Ana’s wonderful support and encouragement, both children have made tremendous progress with their Spanish; she has also helped them to become confident and relaxed about using the language. Again, this is particularly impressive because they have no opportunity to speak Spanish outside of their weekly Skype classes.
Ana has devised an astonishing variety of engaging activities, all of which have got the children using Spanish in a natural and effective way. For example, a joint pancake-making session (with Ana in her kitchen in Spain, and our youngest child in the kitchen here in Japan) was highly imaginative and productive.
Ana has kept me fully involved with the children’s progress through insightful feedback and recommendations. My wife and I have been very happy to ‘stand back’ and give Ana total control over the content and direction of the classes: we have 100% confidence in her.
I have no hesitation at all in recommending Ana. She is enormously professional, talented, creative, passionate, energetic and hard-working. In whatever way she chooses to use her exceptional skills, she has a very, very exciting future!Graham Kitakawa
