We continue to make steady progress in deepening my understanding of previous material and learning new material. The dialogs and roll-playing are particularly helpful in tuning my ear to understanding and to speaking in real situations.

Thanasis and I continue to make steady progress, having completed a review of the first three chapters of level B. Our classes have had a good range of material, from easy to grasp and incorporate to challenging.

I believe we are making steady progress. I'm better able to understand the spoken word and I am grasping the new material more easily. It is good to read and write longer texts and to listen to conversations. It is challenging to invent a dialog on the spot, but I am learning.

I enjoy the lessons with Thanasis and he produces excellent materials for learning. He is patient and understands what I need. His English is very good, which makes it very easy to communicate in the lesson.
