"...I have been doing Rosetta Stone for a year and actually have done very well but do I know the grammar rules? No. Rosetta Stone is total immersion and it takes a lot of self discipline and lots of figuring things out for yourself. On the first day of Freestyle the light bulb switched on and I had an 'ah ha' moment. I am going to take more classes because I like my instructor so much, it is a lot of fun!"

Science-Backed, Fun, & Effective

"Freestyle actually makes speaking another language fun. (The Saturday café conversations on Saturday morning have been one of the highlights of my weekend!) Over the past four years I have taken other Spanish language classes though UT's informal Classes, Creative Language Center, Rosetta Stone, and even informally through Craigslist - you cannot beat the ambiance and the quality that Freestyle offers..."

Classes Emphasizing Culture & Conversation

"Freestyle expertly addresses one aspect of language learning that most schools in Austin totally miss… the conversation! They have so many opportunities available to practice conversation every week. If you are looking to expand your Spanish or French skills, THIS is the place!"
