ason Fritze’s classes are one part stand-up comedy, one part drama class. In story after story Jason entertains his students while at the same time bringing a vast knowledge of methods that guarantee successful language acquisition. It’s hard to believe you’re in a class at all. Jason has lived in Spain and travelled extensively and brings culture and language to life when he teaches.
