How does the trial lesson work?
The trial class is designed so that the student and the teacher met each other.
The trial class will help the teacher assess your level, objectives, interests and learning style. It will also allow you to evaluate if my method meets your expectations.
There will be different questions and short exercises to complete during the test class. This will help us to determine your level.

How does online lessons work?
The goal of the class is to make you more confident and feel more secure with the use of Spanish.
I normally use two free video-conference programs: SKYPE and ZOOM, but I prefer the second one because the quality connection is better, has a virtual dashboard and we can record the lessons if you want it. But I can use Google Hangouts or WhatsApp (in the case of conversation).
The duration of the class is 50 minutes (individual and group) and 30 minutes for the conversation course.
The material will be shared during the lesson.
We will work all the skills but devote more attention to any skill with which you may have problems or that you would like to improve.
The classes are interactive, we will share documents, images, videos and audios by using Google Drive or the screen option to share on Skype or Zoom.
After class I will give you homework to reinforce and practice the topics discussed in the class, such as additional exercises, readings, listening or even watching a movie. However, the homework is not mandatory, it is entirely up to you. If you do it you can send it to me by email and I will correct it.
What do I need for classes?
All you need is an Internet connection and a Skype / Google Hangouts / Zoom / WhatsApp account.

This varies from one student to another and depends on some key factors such as previous knowledge, daily work, motivation, practice, etc.), especially the amount of time you can devote to self-study and the frequency of your Spanish classes. In general, students who have classes twice a week may level up after 8 or 12 weeks, while other students in similar circumstances may need more time.
