I have been a student of Mile’s for a number of years. I really enjoy our classes and I learn something new in every one! She is organized and incredibly reliable, and I’d recommend her for any level of study. As a person, she is extremely kind and patient with me (which every language learner needs) so practice conversations are fun and always comfortable. The time we've spent on pronunciation, sentence structure, and word order has given me much more confidence in speaking Spanish! I feel so lucky to have found her for help with this journey, and I’m amazed at how much she has taught me. I highly endorse her!

Milena is an outstanding Spanish coach. You can hire an ok Spanish teacher, you can hire a better Spanish teacher, or you can hire the best, someone who lifts your performance in all facets, Milena. She's helped me professionally through her lessons and the return on investment from our Spanish classes has been insane.

Estoy estudiando español con Milena y ya llevo un año. Me encantan las clases. Milena es un tipo de maestra que ajusta las clases a sus estudiantes de acuerdo al nivel e intereses. Para mí las clases con ella son como conversaciones con una amiga y al mismo tiempo estoy aprendiendo la lengua. Ella corrige mis errores de manera muy amable. Siempre está de buen ánimo y crea un ambiente cordial y divertido.

I had the pleasure of having Mile as a Spanish teacher for the four weeks myself and my girlfriend were learning Spanish in Medellin. It was a great experience and really helped me build a good foundation of Spanish for our further travels in Latin America. She was flexible, accommodating, thorough and persistent and her attitude was fantastic. If you are looking to learn Spanish from any level in Medellin you really need to look no further.

Milena was an amazing Spanish teacher she quickly helped me improve my speaking skills and adapted her methods to what I wanted to achieve and also gave me helpful assignments to do in my own time outside of class which help me quickly get my Spanish speaking skills to a really solid level.

I would absolutely recommend Mile if you are looking to learn or improve on your Spanish. Her delivery of a well-organized curriculum has helped me learn quickly, thoroughly enjoying every class. Mile quickly puts you at ease and enables you to start speaking Spanish from the outset. Her approach is modern and refined, incorporating well-crafted exercises along the way which are both fun and effective. With over 80 hours of classes chalked up, I would simply say look no further. Having attempted French in the past in a more contemporary fashion, I can say with good authority that Mile’s style is so much more effective – and FUN!!

I've been working with Mile for over a year, taking multiple lessons each week via Skype. I have also done Spanish lessons via Skype with several other teachers but nobody has compared to Mile. She is far and away the BEST I've worked with. Clear and organized, easy to understand. Her lessons are fun and always customized to my needs with lots positive feedback and corrections. I can not recommend her enough to anyone looking to learn Spanish.
