My son is in True North Academy Spanish for Children class. It has been such a positive experience and a blessing for our family. He has learned so much and thoroughly enjoyed the classes. I love that the classes are live and everyone can see each other. This is especially important for language study. We will definitely be taking more courses from True North Academy.
