I worked with Noel for about 6 months learning Spanish. I had never taken any Spanish classes before meeting him, I am from Canada, and we learned French in school. Living in Houston, Texas now, I wanted to be able to be relatively fluent in Spanish, and within 6 months, I am now able to speak at a level higher than a lot of the people that grow up here. I traveled to Mexico City last month, and was able to hold conversations, ask directions, and basically get along with locals who speak no English, and I owe this ability to Noel. He is a patient teacher who can adapt to different students abilities to learn and progress at the rate of the individual.
