After majoring in Spanish in university, plus additional study in private immersion schools in Mexico, I can confidently say that professor Sarinana’s methods and style of teaching are the best I have come across. His desire to know each student as an individual and to encourage and motivate each one is remarkable. He has a unique ability to assess the needs of a particular class and to respond accordingly with supplemental material, special exercises, etc. I heartily recommend Professor Sari?ana?s classes for any serious student of Spanish.

Foreign Television Correspondent, New York, I’ve loved learning Spanish online with the San Cristobel Language School. Living in a predominantly Latin American part of New York, I’m able to converse with my neighbours and even confuse them with my Mexican-New Zealand accent!

Nashville-based singer, songwriter, and guitarist and graduate of Berkeley College of Music.I have very much enjoyed my Skype lessons with Laura Garcia. Her knowledge of Spanish grammar is second-to-none, and she has also helped improve my conversational skills a lot since I started lessons with her several months ago.

Doctor of Physical Therapy/Master of Public Health Candidate at Emory University, Luz is a great Spanish teacher! She is very knowledgeable and does a wonderful job of personalizing each lesson to my learning needs. I notice a lot of improvement in my conversational skills and feel much more comfortable interacting with Spanish-speaking patients in clinic. I recommend Spanish with Skype to anyone looking for individualized Spanish lessons for a great price.

zasque@me.com Environmental reporter. The Statesman Journal I am extremely impressed by Luis Sarinana’s detailed knowledge of the Spanish and English anguages. As a former ESL teacher myself, it is very reassuring to know that my Spanish education is in the hands of such an authority — and such an all-round friendly person, too

davisbyline@hotmail.com The Statesman Journal Luis Sarinana’s classes opened new doors for me as a journalist. After a year of instruction I am able to interview Spanish-speaking sources, and I’m also familiar with their cultural backgrounds. I use Spanish almost every day, from restaurants to my job to casual conversations on the street

Prof. Sarinana is very skilled in presenting information in an easy-to-understand format. He is highly schooled in Language Arts in general which aids in helping students understand the structure of the Spanish language. He is “the real thing” and the constant addition of cultural information makes for very colorful and enjoyable learning. Prof. Sarinana has an impressive academic background and has taught classes in different geographic areas of North America for many years. With this combination of background he makes learning fun and you look forward to attending!

Luis’s Spanish Introduction class was a non-threatening yet highly energetic way to learn basic vocabulary and pronunciation skills. The cultural background he interweaves into his teaching gave me a useful lense to use in working with so many of our students and families.

J. Luis Sarinana-Ortiz is an excellent spanish teacher. He is very knowledgeable about his subject and has an enthusiastic and supportive teaching style. I have taken Spanish classes in the past and this is the first time I have been inspired to stick with it.”
