Beginner’s Spanish class

I have just arrived in Cuenca and I know almost no Spanish. I would like to find a class rather than study 1-1 with someone. Can someone direct me to such a class for the absolute beginner.

Gas subsidies are going bye-bye

Propane, LP and gasoline subsidies are all going bye bye. Moreno is sticking to his guns. He impresses me with this news and the axing of the 75% capital gains tax on extraordinary profits and here I thought he was hand-picked by what’s his face. Pro Growth policies always win. It will beinteresting on how this pans out with all the protesting. I been saying all along, prices are going up.

Recommendation for Dr. Jenny Karim Meza, Have pain? Travel to Dr. Jenny

I had a diagnosis of a bulging disc in my lower back causing me tremendous pain. I couldn’t sleep, walk or sit comfortably. Three weeks ago I went to Dr. Jenny, a physician from Venezuela who specializes in Bioenergetic/Holistic Neuralgic Therapy. She used acupuncture, massage, injections, drugs and other modalities to help me. Within two weeks, I was feeling much better and after three weeks I was back to my usual activities and sleeping without pain. Dr. Jenny is sometimes funny but always professional. She is passionate about her work and helping people is her mission. She speaks English very well. If you have pain, I highly recommend that you call Dr. Jenny and arrange an appointment. You won’t be sorry.
