You can always contact the teacher if you have any doubts. Your progression will be analysed regularly according to the initial learning plan agreed between you and the teacher.

Other frequently asked questions
Take a trial lesson. During that lesson I will be able to assess your level of Spanish. We can also define the type of classes that are more appropriate for your needs and define your goals. Once the trial lesson is finished, you can decide if you want to contract a class package. There is no obligation whatsoever for you to take any further lessons after the trial session. To book a trial lesson go to “contact” and send me an e-mail Español a tu ritmo.
The trial lesson is completely FREE and it will last 30-45 mns. You are under absolutely no obligation to take any more lessons after the trial lesson.
The trial lesson allows me the time to get to know your level and helps to ensure that the lesson package will meet your needs and aims for the future.
If you need to change or cancel the trial lesson, it is requested that you notify me at least 24-hours notice.
Do you want to try a trial lesson?
Classes are via Zoom, Google Hangouts or Skype.
The main purpose of taking Spanish lessons with me is for you to learn in a way that is useful and meaningful to you.
I want to highlight this point since learning, in general, and the learning of a language in particular, has much to do with one’s personal interests. It will be more motivating for you if your practice and learning is related to an area that you are passionate about or if it is related to your field of interest.
That is why classes, despite having a grammatical framework that does not vary, are fully customized according to each student. The same is applied when one wishes to thoroughly work a particular area of study within the language such as speaking, writing or pronunciation, etc.
In each class, we will develop multiple skills using different tools. For example notes, documents… resources are shared simultaneously during class, real-time interaction, videos, images, articles, news, exercises, games, etc.
The reading and writing materials will usually be assigned as homework, so you can reinforce the topics studied during the class.
You can contact me when you need to. You can send me your questions and your doubts by e-mail and I will respond in less than 24-hours. Are you ready for a trial lesson?
As previously explained, you will be provided with online material, resources and documents. You do not have to buy any books. Since classes are tailored to your needs, I do not work with a specific book. I have my own material, which I will send you before, during or after each class.
If you prefer to use a book because you feel more comfortable learning from a course book and it helps you to work in a more organized way, I can suggest a suitable one for your level and work with it.
Yes, you can change the lesson time as long as I’m available.
You can cancel a class without missing it as long as you give me at least a 24 hour notice before the session. Otherwise, the class will be changed and you will miss it.
In case of connection problems, we will cancel the session and the minutes that you have not used up will be made up for at another agreed time.
Yes. All packages expire within 6 months of the day of the day of payment.
After the trial class if you decide to study Spanish with me, go to “Prices” to make a payment. Select your package and then you will be redirected to PayPal. Another option is to pay me through a bank transfer in only one payment. Make sure this is the correct package you want to buy.
