"After completing Functionally Fluent!'s Beginner Spanish course, which took me just a few weeks, I took a college placement exam and placed out of the first semester of college Spanish. After the second (Intermediate) course, I placed out of two semesters. After the third (Advanced) course, I placed out of all four semesters of college Spanish. This program saved me thousands of dollars and dozens of hours of my time. Not to mention, it made me actually fluent in Spanish. I can now speak with my girlfriend's family in Peru, and have no problems when I'm there. I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have accomplished that in a few weeks of college classes!" - Patrick Rano, Senior Field Engineer "This course helped me learn more Spanish than anything I'd used before - and believe me, I'd tried everything - online programs, textbooks, apps, you name it! This is by far the best way to learn a language I've seen. I've just finished the Beginner level, and I'm excited to complete the whole series on my own." - Craig Smith, Project Manager
