What do the Students say about our Spanish School?
Julie & Glen -Boise, USA-
My husband and I have been taking Spanish zoom lessons with Wagner for over a year. We are hoping to move to Costa Rica in the next year or so. Our lessons with Wagner are fun and packed with information. Wagner has shown flexibility in that he has adopted a format to teach the two of us during the same session, which adds to the drama and the fun. It is a format that is highly comfortable for us. We have made a lot of progress, and though we are not yet fluent, we now have more confidence in using our Spanish and can understand quite a bit.
Wagner has become a friend. We were lucky to meet him on a trip last year. He is always curious about our life in the USA. One of the best aspects of this learning system is that we are learning about Costa Rican culture and tico words, idioms, and even slang.
I highly recommend this school to anyone hoping to learn Spanish.
I really enjoy working with Wagner! He has a great sense of humor and makes the lessons fun. I appreciate his flexibility and the way he adapts his method to match my learning style. We have great conversations about Costa Rica and other interesting topics. I don’t even mind the grammar (too much).
Wagner and his Spanish school are the best! All the lessons are super organized, easy to understand and well presented. Most Spanish teachers are taught what to teach and can be quite boring. Wagner has a gift and makes the class something to look forward to. I highly recommend his school!
Great option for learning the basics or improving intermediate Spanish. Instruction can be customized into a more formal program or a more conversation practice approach. I prefer a blend of the two. Starting each class with conversation but knowing my instructor has a plan for covering new topics. Highly recommended.
Wagner is a great teacher and I learned a lot taking his classes. He has a great sense of humor, which made the classes very enjoyable and fun. I enjoyed learning about the cultural aspect of Costa Rica and also meeting others virtually from all over the world. I highly recommend Wagner’s classes.
I have had many teachers during my time in Costa Rica and have never really found the right fit, until now! Wagner is amazing. He is organized and teaches with such a personal touch. I am an English teacher by profession and I finally found someone that has the same follow-up and attention to detail that I use in my classes! If you are serious about learning Spanish and want to put in the time you have found the right person! Pura Vida!!
I have been taking Spanish classes with Wagner for about 8 years. He is an excellent teacher and can teach Spanish at any level from beginner to advanced. He is also fluent in English. His classes are very professional and organized and he also makes the learning experience fun. His system of teaching makes it easy for the beginning student to start speaking in complete sentences very fast so they can actually communicate with those that speak Spanish. For more advanced students his classes are also excellent. He can explain in great detail but with great clarity why, for example, a certain verb or tense should be used in different cases. He is not just a Spanish speaker …. he is a professional Spanish teacher with students from all over the world.
I was very nervous having never been good at languages but Wagner is so personable that he very soon put me at ease. The classes are informative but also great fun. He taught me not just the language, but the differences specific to Costa Rica’s language and customs.
I strongly recommend his class, so much better than just using an app. And hoping it’s correct.
I have been taking Spanish classes with Wagner Freer since I first arrived in Costa Rica. I have learned so much (and had fun doing it). I still have lots to learn but I am so much more confident speaking Spanish than I could have imagined. I travel a lot and have had to miss some classes but Wagner has been great helping me to catch up when needed. He is great – and patient too!
Wagner is a great teacher. He cares a lot about his students and is very encouraging. I always feel relaxed and confident in his classes. He has been my teacher for 2 years so far and it’s been great working with him.
Wagner is THE BEST Spanish teacher I have ever had. Before Wagner, I only knew cómo estás, and after three months of working with him, I was fluent and able to live in a Spanish-only-speaking country. He is caring, personable, patient, and a professional at what he does.
Wagner’s classes offer so much more than just a great way to learn Costa Rican Spanish. We talk about my new culture also. I moved here in 2020 (yes). I have taken both group and personal lessons. I like Wagner’s method as it teaches a way to communicate to get thoughts across, not just vocabulary. His classes include listening, speaking, reading, and culture. This is the best class for new expats. He can work with all levels of learners. I have a much deeper level of joy that comes with interacting with the people of my new country.
My husband and I were living in Heredia two years ago. He was working, and I was there to learn Spanish. After five full weeks at a well-respected language school, I was overwhelmed by the workload and needed to try a different approach. That’s when an ex-pat friend introduced me to Wagner Freer. I signed up for private tutoring twice a week, which allowed me to learn at my own pace. A few weeks later, my husband also signed up for tutoring with Wagner. It’s been almost two years now. We’ve both made good progress and continue to study with Wagner. ¡Muchas Gracias Wagner! Jan and Paul
I have really enjoyed taking Wagner‘s Spanish classes. He is an excellent teacher and he makes learning extremely fun. I have tried other online classes and more expensive lessons here in the US and he is by far my favorite teacher. He keeps the classes fun and entertaining and keeps you captivated while also keeping things at your pace and making sure you not only understand but enjoy what you were learning. I highly recommend taking his courses and learning Spanish the Costa Rican way!!!
Working with Wagner is a real joy. Not only is he a good teacher, know his stuff and have an innovative method, he is genuinely a nice person. Our classes were always fun, full of laughter, and learning. I recommend him without reserve.
