His site contains information about the Spanish language, its use in business and elsewhere, dialects, how quickly you can learn it, Spanish culture, which courses you can find at a typical language school in Spain, visa requirements -- and particular emphasis on how to find a good school. This is an excellent resource for anyone thinking of studying a language abroad.
