ONLINE SPANISH LESSONS


Spanish is one of the most popular languages in the world, spoken natively in more than 20 countries. This also makes it quite a varied language. For example, did you know that carro, auto and automóvil mean the same thing, “car”, depending on the country? Or that , vos and usted are all variations of the same pronoun (you)? Don’t let this discourage you from learning Spanish: our native-speaking instructors will help you be fluent in a short time and be understood wherever you go with our fun, interactive online Spanish lessons!

 

What you will learn with us

If you’ve never studied Spanish before, you’ll begin your journey with our Survival course. This programme is designed for absolute beginners to start getting familiar with the pronunciation and cadence of Spanish and learn basic phrases and structures, such as greetings (hola, qué tal?), asking for forgiveness (disculpa, perdón, lo siento) or thanking others (gracias, muchas gracias, eres muy amable). We will even make sure you have a teacher who speaks the regional dialect you are most interested in knowing, so can start developing your ear and practising your conversation skills right away.

 

We take your preferences into account

Students who have at least mastered the basics will enjoy 100% tailored courses designed with your interests and goals in mind. So, if you tell your teacher the media you enjoy and how you intend to use the language in the real world, they can adapt the lessons to be of the greatest interest to you. For example, study Spanish vocabulary and culture by reading short stories written by Cortázar or Borges, listening to songs by great artists, like Maná or Shakira, or watching films, like Relatos Salvajes or El Laberinto del Fauno. The choice is yours!
