What educators are saying

Mariagrazia Spina

University of Central Florida

“I love Vista products for all my languages. The Supersite never lets you down.” 

Devon Hanahan

College of Charleston

“VHL produces excellent textbooks and even better support for faculty using them. The textbook reps are knowledgeable and always available, and the phone support lines are fast, responsive, and efficient.” 

Rhonda Case

College of the Redwoods

“Never have I been more grateful for VHL materials than now. The curriculum offers a rich and varied menu of satisfying learning options for students. The web-based materials are educational lifesavers for our students and for us, as faculty.” 

Dr. Joshua Perdomo

Director of Multilingual Programs

“With the Vista programs we are seeing our students become more active in their life. There is more participation, they’re more willing to speak, and they’re more willing to engage in conversations because we give them resources that allow them to be able to tie all the pieces together.” 

Jorge Zamora

Spanish Teacher

“The whole technology aspect of what Vista Higher Learning offers has opened so many doors for us—as collaborators, as collaborating teachers, and with the students”
