“I started CultureAlley series with my 13 year old daughter and we both love it! She is taking Spanish in 8th grade but she was totally confused but this series is helping her so much!”

“My Mandarin vocabulary was so blank until I discovered your lessons! Now, instead of always replying with ‘Wo hen hao’ I can reply with so much more. You make it seem like I have a pretty good Mandarin vocabulary”
