    I like that the focus for kids's class is on fun. Best way for children to learn. My son is very interested to study Spanish when I told him that his grandfather is half-Spanish. I was asking around and was advised to check italki or Preply.com ( http://preply.com/en/spanish-by-skype ) for online lessons. I happened to come across this page and was curious about how different online schools are. I'm glad that I have more than two options. Please send me a message. Thank you!
