The most comfortable way to learn Spanish

Travelling to a Spanish speaking country soon? Do you have friends or relatives who speak Spanish?
It is difficult to learn Spanish on your own, we get it. There are thousands of free resources on the internet but, how do you know it is good? It is really difficult to sort through the good and the bad materials. That’s why we have decided to bring all of our experience, teachers and effective methods to online teaching. Our native teachers will help you achieve fluency fast. Improve your cv and land that job you are looking for, make your trip to Latin America easier, talk to that friend in Spanish. Whatever the reason, we’ve got you covered.

Why taking Spanish lessons online?

Learning Spanish is a must in today’s world. With more than 400 million native speakers and more than 100 million students, it is no wonder why so many companies and jobs regard this language as a huge plus. On the other hand, if you ever feel like experiencing the true culture of Latin America or Spain and you are planning a trip to a Spanish speaking country, you definitely need to speak Spanish to make your trip easier. 

The problem is that many of us have our schedules full and it is difficult to personally go to a school, that’s why we have brought our school to you, wherever you are and whenever you want.

Frequently Asked Questions

Each class can be either 1 or 2 hours long, any day at your own pace.

There is no minimum hours you have to take. You are free to choose and pay for only 1 hour or choose a full course (+50 hours)

You can pay using paypal or credit card (through transferwise)

Given that all of our teachers also work at our school, at the moment we can only offer lessons from 8 am to 8 pm (CST) from Monday to Saturday

Depending on your current understanding of the language, a full level is at least 50 hours of lessons, eg. If you are a total beginner, it will take you 40 hours to successfully pass A1 level. If you are an advanced learner, say starting B2, it will take you more than 100 hours to reach C1 level. In either case, if you decide to go for a full level, you need to pay in advance for the course at the rate of $13/hour. Any extra hour that you need or subsequent level that you decide to take will be charged at the $13/hour rate of the “full level” package.

Unlike our normal courses, there is no registration fee for the online lessons. You just pay for the amount of lessons you want to take and that’s it, you are good to start.
