Thank you to Bertha and Viva Spanish School in helping my family integrate into life in Peru! My family arrived from Australia with very little spanish and understanding of the Peruvian culture. You offered language classes tailored to our schedule and needs, as well as friendship and support during our transition to Lima. After 12 months of support, personally I feel comfortable spending my working days communicating in Spanish and my wife can easily negate day to day Lima life without language being a barrier. Equally important for us we feel we have ongoing support from Bertha and the team at Viva. Sincerely, thank you!

I have been taking on-line Spanish classes with Bertha at Viva Idiomas for 10 months! It’s a great way to learn Spanish. One to one tutoring in the privacy of your own home.
I have really improved in my conversation skills and Bertha is also very patient with me when Istruggle with the Spanish grammer!

Learning Spanish with Bertha was a great experience. I was acquiring the language from scratch and she was incredibly supportive and patient trough out. Her classes were well prepared and interesting with a good mix of oral discussion and grammar.

Speaking Spanish did not become a desire of mine until my children were getting out of high school. I had the desire to travel to Spanish speaking countries and provide medical care. Viva Escuela de Español fit into my schedule and is geared for adults leaners. I have studied with the school for 2 years and am continuing to learn. I have traveled to El Salvador and Perú, and hope to continue to serve the Spanish speaking populations around the world. The personal attention provided to students creates a safe learning environment and wonderful friendships. Thank you Bertha for being part of my mission journey.

I was very lucky to have Bertha as my teacher, I learn quickly, not only useful day to day south American Spanish, but also customs and mentality of the people here in Perú. Bertha is an inventive, talented, competent teacher, with much integrity & personality.

When i arrived to Peru i needed to learn Spanish quickly for both business and pleasure. ‘Viva Idiomas’ allowed me to do this in a friendly, convenient and professional manner. The flexibility that is offered by the language school, allowed me to tailor my learning process according to my exact daily schedule and my preferred location. The level of tuition that i received was both exceptional and thorough and was made interesting and entertaining by my teacher, encouraging my learning.
