Maybe you are wondering if online Spanish lessons are effective for you. The answer is 100% yes. Learning a language requires human interaction. You can learn some contents through apps or reading books. But a language is not just knowledge, languages are not math. Human interaction, the use of the language on top of its rules is a key element when learning a language. Human contact with a native teacher is an excellent option to learn Spanish online.
An essential advantage of Spanish lessons online is the invididual nature of the class. The student receives personalized attention from the teacher. What are the difficult topics for the student? Which topics does the student need to work more on? Other than in a group course the student invests every second of the class in learning with the pace and intensity he/she needs. If the student already understands some topics there is no need for further explanation and the teacher moves on. If there is a topic with which the student struggles a lot, the teacher prepares additional material on this specific topic so that the student overcomes personal obstacles. If the student understands the theory very good but has difficulties speaking,the teacher focus on conversation so that the students starts speaking fluently.

Read about some successful cases:
Stephan wants to consolidate his A1 level before coming to Spain
Stephan is an IT specialist from Austria that had learned Spanish by himself with well written Spanish books that wanted to do an intensive Spanish course at our school. Our level test showed that he didn't need to start from the beginning of A1 but that he also wasn't completely ready to start an A2 course. He also had some doubts since he did understand a lot of Spanish when reading but he had barely had the chance to speak. The strategy we followed was perfect. Stephan took some skype clases before coming to Spain. Our teacher specifically prepared the clases with a lot of conversation in order to repeat A1 topics while making Stephan speak a lot. He arrived in Las Palmas ready for A2 and with self-confidence when speaking. After a few weeks he managed the A2 level and is now in the beginnings of B1. Thanks to a tailor-made content he made the most out of his stay in Spain.
Thijs wants to maintain his level until the next visit to our school
Thijs did an A1 course with us last January. He enjoyed it a lot and continued with A2 in february. After two intensive months Thijs now speaks Spanish with a solid A2 level. He is retired and he wants to keep coming to Gran Canaria every winter. He knows that if he doesn't speak Spanish at all during the following 10 months he would have probably forgotten some of the contents. The A2 level is complex and students learn different past tenses with their conjugation and uses. Starting a B1 level without having a solid A2 knowledge can be counter-productive. That's why we prepared a plan. After two very intensive months we took a break and started in May with one skype class every two weeks. With a lot of conversation we go over the topics learned in January and February consolidating the knowledge and keeping the speaking practice active. Thijs will start a B1 course in January perfectly ready.
Lars goes to Argentina
Lars is a medicine student from Norway. Lars came to our school to take an A2 intensive course because he was planing to do a year abroad in Argentina two months later. In only four weeks he completed the A2 level. But since he knew that A2 might still not be enough for a year abroad in Argentina he took some skype clases after his stay in Gran Canaria to continue to learn Spanish online before moving to Argentina.
Hispanic Philology students
Studying Hispanic Philology being non-native is worthy of admiration. Students must not only speak Spanish they also have to handle the language as an expert: linguistics, syntax… University exams can be a true challenge. Sometimes the help of a native teacher a few days before the exam can be worth its weight in gold. In these skype clases the very specific topics of this particular exam are addressed to garanty success in the exam.
Which materials are used to learn Spanish online?
Good materials are essential for the success of skype classes. Teachers prepare in advace materials that they send to the students before or during the class. Students can do their homework on a word file and send it to the teacher to correct any mistakes. The teachers' prepararation of Spanish lessons online mean a relevant increase in their workload, which obviously impacts in the price of a qualitative skype class. With a good preparation skype clases work very good. And, although there are some limitations when two people don't seat in the same room, being both in front of a computer also opens the possibility of using other interactive materials online.
