Command Spanish Online Courses

"The Command Spanish course has given me the ability to communicate with my Spanish-speaking families. Before this course I did not have the confidence to converse in Spanish. Now I know important phrases that I can use in a variety of settings. I was very satisfied with the knowledge of the instructor and the ease in which she taught the course."
- Makayla S., Belle Ryan Elementary
