Aliana Summers

I LOVE this program! I find that having chats set up with my conversational partners from other countries is a real motivation for me. The chats give me a reason to do the work. Normally, knowing I’d have an in-person class would be the reason, but of course that’s impossible now. Communicating with a native speaker is such a great way to match the pronunciation of words with what they look like on paper. I highly recommend Intercambio, and I’ve found all those reviews about the excellent service to be completely true. Leslie and Rory are fantastic!

Este tipo de ayuda en hablar y escuchar el idioma que estas aprendiendo con personas nativos del idioma nos ayuda mejor y es una buena estrategia en el aprendizaje. Y los compañeros de practica son geniales en ayudar..!

José Ambrocio Xóc Díaz

El mejor programa, estoy muy feliz de pertenecer a este maravilloso grupo , esto es un reto muy grande para mi hablar con personas del idioma Inglés nativo y tenía miedo de hablar ya que yo soy principiante de habla Inglés con tan solo unas semanas poco a poco perdí el miedo y a demás nos ayudamos entre todos , yo recomiendo a todas las personas que sea parte de este maravilloso programa

Rebeca Castillo

Estoy muy feliz de esta hermosa experiencia, con el intercambio he perdido el miedo a equivocarme y hablar mucho más, con más cofianza y lo más importante pensar en inglés. Disfruto de las conversaciones con mis partners , me han ayudado muchísimo y son geniales.
Gracias por esta gran oportunidad!!!

Me encanta el programa. al principio cuando me dijeron de integrarme a Intercambio me dio un poco de susto pues hablar en ingles con personas que lo saben bien era todo un reto, Sin embargo lo acepte y pense que debia hacerlo. Intercambio me ha ayudado a superar ese miedo y a hablar sin temor a equivocarme, me ha dado mas confianza y mis partners son fantasticas y me han ayudado muchisimo, yo solo espero estar haciendo lo mismo con ellas, ayudandolas con el aprendizaje de su espanol.

I have really enjoyed my experience with Intercambio. It is a professional, valuable, flexible service that provides new avenues through which I am able to study Spanish. I have taken many good classes that have focused on Spanish grammar, reading, and writing, but this program allows me to put those skills into practice in a safe, friendly environment for all levels of Spanish and English speakers.

LeAnn Seto

The enthusiasm, creativity, and organization of the teachers is AMAZING and top quality! I look forward to each week’s lesson and the online practice, but especially the practice with my friend in person! Each week Leslie tells us to “open your mouths and make mistakes” at the end of every video lesson and I always chuckle, but that is really what is making this class such a success for me. In classroom settings it’s all about getting the right conjugations, but with Intercambio it’s about just using what you DO know and having fun with your friend and your language. I have such a better relationship with Spanish now because I’m not so afraid of mistakes any longer. I actually feel hopeful that I could truly become competent with people who only speak Spanish because of Intercambio!

Tim Dempsey

Intercambio provides a wonderful , supportive environment for all levels of Spanish/English learners. The lessons are well organized and professionally done. The opportunity to interact with other learners sets this program apart from others.

Kellly Pritchard

Well done! Very professional! Very friendly! Very effective! Worth the money!

Juliet Franklin

Intercambio is the answer to my wishes! I have been trying to learn Spanish for more years than I would like to admit, and then the ad for this program popped up in my email. It is fun, affordable, and effective. I have a conversation partner which keeps me accountable each week to study the fun and engaging materials provided by Leslie and Rory Foster. They provide many other resources, including “office hours,” which is a fun way to meet online and practice our Spanish (or English). I highly recommend this program.

This is a wonderful way to improve your Spanish speaking & listening skills. The organization of the course is outstanding. Each week focuses on a theme, and associated vocabulary and grammar topics. The vocabulary is available on the Quizlet phone app (e-flash cards), making it easy to study the vocabulary any time, any place. The lessons provide structure for the conversations with a partner, so there are no awkward pauses trying to figure out what to talk about next. And there is an emphasis on saying what you are thinking without stressing about getting it exactly right. I can sit down and write out a conjugation for many verbs, but coming up with the right form on the fly in conversation is a very different skill that I am developing now. I am very happy with this course, and wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone who wants to take their Spanish to a new level.

Intercambio has been a fun and very inexpensive way to help forward my Spanish learning. Speaking with native Spanish speakers is invaluable and the program has connected me to language partners I can skype or whatsapp with. It works with my schedule and I can practice as much or as little as I want. It reaches all types of learners – you get video instruction, written instruction, one-on-one practice with your partner(s), and group practice during “office hours” every week. You can ask questions each week and they will be answered in the group. So glad I found this program!

Intercambio is the next best thing to immersion travel to improve your Spanish skills (or even better for those of us who like to stay home!). Rory and Leslie provide a comfortable environment where it’s OK to be brave and learn by making mistakes. It’s easy to find a native Spanish speaker with whom to practice. The weekly guided lessons provide a comfortable platform for learning through conversation. Try it!

Intercambio is a fun way to chat and get to know people from other countries. It is kind of like having a pen pal to practice your language skills with!

Intercambio makes learning Spanish an exciting, intriguing, enlightening process. no matter what your entry level. Sometimes I feel as freshly inspired as my 9-year- old self did when she wrote letters to a pen-pal in Paris! In these quarantined times, I feel genuinely connected to a intercontinental community.

This intercambio program is so much more than I expected. I knew that I would have an opportunity to practice speaking Spanish each week, which I absolutely need. I was nervous! However, the weekly conversation guides, grammar focus, and office hours provide so much support. They are so well thought out and connected. My partners and I use the guide as our starting point, and then the conversation starts flowing with ease. Not only is my Spanish improving, but I feel like I have made new friends in other countries. Thank you!

The Intercambio has been a perfect way to keep up with my Spanish! It’s very tailored to my availability and ability level. A very welcoming community of no-judgement, just everyone trying to improve their language abilities! The conversation guides that Rory and Leslie provide are such a unique and vital part of this program that help guide ALL learners at all levels with their conversations. I’ve been able to connect with multiple people from multiple different countries, which is an invaluable and fantastic way for me to continuously learn and improve my Spanish as well as cultural awareness.

Leslie and Rory are doing an amazing job with this new program. The encouragement to simply start practicing rather than worrying about perfection is just what I needed. Leslie’s office hours and teaching sessions are outstanding for their clarity, energy, and specificity to each new learning task. This is an incredible opportunity to connect with Spanish speakers from literally around the world and to practice in a safe, encouraging environment. The conversational guides are thorough and helpful and serve to give structure and intentional learning to the actual conversation times. Leslie and Rory also work hard to adjust to the various needs of the students by offering relevant content. I highly recommend Intercambio if you want to advance in your Spanish conversational skills.

Thank you Intercambio! Not only is this platform creating space for me to have a weekly conversation in Spanish in a judgement-free environment which is definitely help mprove my fluency but Intercambio is facilitating connection with people in other countries in a time when connecting is difficult and CRITICAL. The guided conversations provided by Intercambio helped completely alleviate my nervousness about having a conversation in Spanish with a person I have never met – now I definitely look forward to my scheduled conversations!! Thank you!

The Intercambio program is one of the most amazing resources I have ever seen in truly growing in the language and finally having a safe, comfortable, and fun place to practice speaking! I have known and have taught the basics of Spanish for over 16 years but my deep fear of making mistakes, sounding ignorant, and being timid to speak has prevented me from growing and moving forward. The Intercambio program has been an answered prayer. The weekly teachings and conversation topics, encouraging teachers, being matched with speaking partners that are at my level, and having the opportunity to speak as often as needed- in my own home, with people from around the world is the perfect combination. The program has allowed me to jump leaps and bounds in my learning within a matter of weeks and I have gained more confidence in these first few weeks then I have in years. Intercambio has also re-ignited my passion for Spanish. I look forward to each new week in the program and can’t wait to see just how far I can grow.

Leslie, you do such a great job teaching me Spanish. I made a great choice to connect with you and the Intercambio team.

Charlotte Rivera

Hooray for Intercambio / Common Ground. This is the first time I have been successful practicing Spanish. You may practice with anyone in the class, you converse is English if you are an English learner, or In Spanish if you are Spanish language learner. The students, whonare from all over the world, partner up to practice.
The teachers, Leslie and Rory send out one lesson, so you and your partner a basis for conversation. This week talked about the pandemic.
It is well thought out and executed program. I am so excited to be practicing regularly. It is not about perfection or grades. It is about enjoying chatting with people who want to chat with you.
It is extraordinary and I love it.

I appreciate the opportunity to converse so much. I have taken many classes in Spanish where the teacher talks in English-so frustrating.. I have been looking for a way to prioritize conversation for so long!-And here’ it is! Reasonably priced, curated by professionals, and Leslie has been so attentive , encouraging & helpful-my emails are always answered promptly with the info I requested.

Thank you for helping me to speak Spanish with Intercambio. This class came at a perfect time to help me achieve my dream of learning and speaking Spanish. I am grateful that you shared the importance of getting the message across rather than getting hung up on proper grammar. Since I have never taken a Spanish class (until now), I’ve always been afraid to say anything at all. Literally anything! I have a good friend that is from Mexico, and I wouldn’t even try to say anything to her in Spanish! Now I am being brave, and it is because of you and this class that you are offering. I truly appreciate how your passion to help others has changed many lives including mine. Thank you!
