Frequently Asked Questions about our Spanish Lessons
- How long is each lesson?
- How long is the whole course?
- How many hours per week is the course?
- What qualifications and experience do the teachers have?
How long is each lesson?
Face to face lessons last either 1.5 hours or 2 hours. Longer, more intensive options are available (half-day, full day) if required – please ask. Online sessions can be as short as 1 hour. The decision is yours. You will need to weigh up your budget in terms of both time and money. If the lessons are for employees, you may need to decide how long you can afford them being taken away from their work if the sessions are during work hours.
“The vast majority of our learners opt for 1.5 hour Spanish lessons each time”
How long is the whole course?
If you are paying using your own funds there is a minimum course booking.
We strongly recommend investing in your or your employees’ learning for at least a period of 6 months. With this long-term approach you are more likely to achieve the results and improvements you expect. A large number of our learners and corporate clients have ongoing weekly sessions, and have been for a number of years.
“It is strongly recommended to consider at least 6 months of Spanish lessons to begin with”
To make further progress, it is also important to consider the work being done on the language outside of the classroom. Our experience has shown that if you or your staff spend the same amount of time on your Spanish outside of lessons, you are likely to learn at least twice as fast when you are in lessons. You should think about putting aside time outside the Spanish lessons to focus on self-study.
How many hours per week is the course?
This is a question of getting the balance right. Our experience shows that most people can fit a single 1.5 hour session comfortably into their week. This enables them to do the lessons, along with any homework, and also fit in self-study and self-learning.
If you’re looking for faster progress in a shorter period of time then we can accommodate much more frequent spacing of lessons. Some of our learners do a lesson every day. It all comes down to your needs, urgency, and of course, your budget!
“A single, 1.5 hour session a week is normal for most of our learners”
What qualifications and experience do the teachers have?
All of our teachers are qualified to degree level and have at least 2 years experience teaching Spanish. We also use native-speaking teachers where possible.
Teachers with a professional teaching background are always preferred, especially if they have experience teaching in-company. Personality and engagement are also extremely important to us when we’re recruiting.
The golden question we always ask ourselves when recruiting a new teacher is: “Would we be happy for the teacher to teach me?” We will only settle if we can answer yes to this question.
“Our Spanish teachers are qualified to degree level, with significant post-qualification experience teaching Spanish”
A lot of the teachers in our network have years, or even decades worth of teaching experience.
“Whether it’s for trips to Spain, South or Central America. Or even for doing business with Spanish speakers, a private teacher can help you or your employees get the most out of Spanish. Take the next step. Organise lessons!”
