“I really enjoy my German classes with Natalie at the Santa Cruz Language Institute. They are fun, very effective, and well tailored to my level and to what I want to work on. Natalie is an amazing teacher. I also really enjoy working with the textbook she recommended. The institute is very responsive and easy to plan with.” Elise Fournier-Bidoz
