Short courses

Short courses? One on one tuition?

Thinking about doing a short holiday Spanish course, or some one on one tuition?

We do not offer a drop in and out holiday lesson service or one on one private lessons, instead we offer a much better alternative that allows you to spend more holiday time on Spanish beaches or in beachside cafes and enjoy a much better command of the Spanish language than you might otherwise.

Many English speakers planning to holiday in Spain or even move here, do our on line online course at speed, doing even two lessons a day

The average online lesson length is 45 minutes, that equates to over an hour in the classroom, as there can be more examples online, as there is no whiteboard scribbling from, and no notes being written up by students.

We cover all the points that you need to be conversational in Spanish in just 50 lessons.

You can watch each video as often as you like. So, if you are midway through the course, when you are ready to enjoy the Spanish sunshine, you can re-watch lessons while you take a break from the beach or pool.

We do not offer a beginner’s, intermediate or advanced course, instead of a class that starts from zero and teaches you all you need to know to be able to say anything you want in Spanish. In this course, I provide a simple strategy that allows you to progress at speed.

If you’ve been learning Spanish already, you will no doubt have a head start on vocabulary, and that means you will be able to progress confidently.

We have many students who start with us who did Spanish at school or night school, or consumed textbooks, gone to countless coffee mornings, or doing online courses but are not fluent.

The sentence construction methods I teach in the first 50 lessons, unlock their potential and they very much enjoy the shift to spoken/hearing Spanish in the following course blocks, learning to converse at ever-increasing speed over time.

But at the same time, many of our students have never had a Spanish lesson in their life thrive with the simplified methods I teach and all the extra support they have available.

At my lessons we don’t talk about adverb, adjectives or imperfect tense etc., we cover all of these but we don’t give them the posh grammatical names, mainly because most of the people I teach don’t have a clue what these things are! You don’t need a knowledge of grammar to do my course.

Students can learn via our online course anywhere in the world, from home, with streaming videos and study notes delivered remotely.

With online tests confirming progress, this initial 50 lesson course can be completed with as much speed or leisure as you wish. We have some online students completing this course in two months or less ahead of Spanish holidays or a move there, but others aim to complete the course in a year or more.

The average online lesson length is 45 minutes, that equates to over an hour in the classroom, as there can be more examples online, as there is no whiteboard scribbling from, and no notes being written up by students.

Each block of 10 lessons includes the coursework in both PDF and word format for easy printing. For active students, the lessons can be re-watched as many times as you like, there is no time limit for them.

The course curriculum and index are provided with the lesson blocks. The index allows you to hone on subjects in past lessons for revision.

The videos are streamed to you, so they take up zero space on your internet device so you don’t need the 250 gigs of hard drive space they occupy, but you can still replay them time after time.

To study remotely, you need reasonable broadband speed and a 10-inch tablet or a computer ideally, although some of our students watch the streaming video lessons on their smartphones.

A printer to output the downloadable notes is handy, although some students prefer to handwrite the notes, as part of their learning routine.

Online lessons cost €5 each in packs of ten or €225 (less than £200 at current rates) for the 50-lesson online course paid in advance.

You can pay with a credit or debit card, on the website for your first pack, and you can watch the intro video inside 24 hours.

If you want to speed your journey towards Spanish fluency online , you can order course lesson blocks, either the first ten lessons or the 50 lesson block.
