The course was easy to access, very informative and you can work through the modules at your own pace. This really motivated me in my learning throughout the time it took me to read through the course detail and I thoroughly enjoyed this online way of gaining a qualification.

I’ve been dabbling with learning some Spanish for a while from CDs in the car to books but with the Groupon offer decided to try New Skills Academy. It’s early days but I like the format and feel I am learning conversational Spanish much better than previous methods.

I'm really enjoying this course so far. There's lots of information and the modules aren't too long. You can pick up where you left off easily and print the modules out if you wish.
