David Davenport is a popular storyteller and his skills in this arena make him an excellent sign model for his students. More importantly, however, is David’s ability to transfer those skills to his students. His student evaluations reflect a genuine concern for his students that spawn repeated success in guiding them toward the competence in the language that they seek.

David is always approachable. I’ve had teachers whom I was afraid to ask about anything, David is the opposite. He never makes you feel stupid if you forgot a word or were wondering what the sign for something was. The best language teacher I’ve ever had.
