Why Did Brita Form Futura Language Professionals?
Over many years of travel, Brita fell in love with Mexico –its light, its color, its music, and it’s gloriously warm people. She continues to return again and again to this country which forever enchants her with its charm. With hopes to find the magic in the rest of Latin America and share these treasures with the world, she formed Futura Language Professionals. This organization is her passion–language, culture, and travel. Brita and her staff are most anxious to share their enthusiasm about Spanish and its lands with you!
