Learning a language face-to-face with a teacher can be a fantastic experience. But if you're unable to find an affordable private Spanish teacher in Crystal Lake, you may want to consider learning online. To learn with a Spanish teacher near you in Crystal Lake, you'll have to either travel to the teacher's home, or pay more to cover their travel time; the average cost of receiving private Spanish classes for adults in Crystal Lake is over $20 per hour. Not only does learning online save travel costs, but you gain access to the best teachers from all over the world.
Whilst students sometimes prefer learning in person, the vast majority of students report being pleasantly surprised by the experience of learning with a teacher online. On LanguaTalk, lessons are taught 1-on-1 so that you receive your teacher’s full attention and can progress quickly. Lessons are taught via video call, allowing you to communicate with your teacher and share learning materials. You'll feel like you're in the same room with your teacher.

Hi! I am Victor. I offer conversational classes. One of the best ways to improve in a language is by talking. The most important thing is to be able to live Spanish as a part of your daily life. Every little detail since you wake up until you go to bed. And always immersed in things you like. So, we can talk about movies, books, history, traveling, food, sports, or any topic that is part of your life.
We can use videos, podcast, articles, music, books, newspapers, phases to start a conversation. We have endless topics. And I can help you with all mistakes you may have. If it is needed we can review grammar accordingly with your common mistakes. But do not forget that make mistakes is one of the best ways to improve. It is important for me that you feel in a safe space.
También podemos tener clases de conversación más casuales. Podemos hablar de un tema y te puedo mostrar algo de gramática de acuerdo a tus errores más comunes. La practica de conversación es lo que más ayuda para que puedas mejorar tu español.
I always adjust to your level.
*For me the best option is zoom.See Reviews From Students
Graduated in Hispanic Philology and Masters in Applied French, I have always kept up with my teaching training and have also completed a CELTA course for English teachers. This further training has provided me with the familiarity to different teaching methodologies, which have proven to be extremely useful in my classes.
I have worked as a Spanish teacher for 13 years, both in-person and online. My job duties typically include designing and delivering Spanish courses for all levels. Also a 13 year-experienced translator. I have recently worked on a project which involved developping Spanish lessons and units to be delivered online, so I am used to creating content of my own.
My teaching method is mostly conversational and based on a combination of skills. I use plenty of audiovisuals and various activities to get students to speak. My constant interest in professional training has allowed me to become familiar with techniques and tools that are essential in today´s second language learning.
My lessons are all similarly structured: a grammar point, a few exercises to get started, then controlled practice, and finally an audio or a video related to the topic.See Reviews From Students
Hi, I'm Federico and I want to guide you on the exciting journey of learning a new language.
Together we will agree where you want to go and how we will achieve it.
As each person learns in a different way, we will take advantage of your strengths and work in your weaknesses. The tutoring is designed to improve your listening, speaking, reading and writing skills. It will depend on your needs and priorities.
In the lessons we will use whatever resources are necessary to achieve our goals. We will use material of interest to you, such as websites, newspapers, songs, podcasts and videos, etc.
I prefer to speak in Spanish from the beginning (ELE Certified). But if necessary, we will use English (120 hours TESOL Certified). I have lived in Africa and on the border with Brazil for a few years, so Portuguese is another option.
Traveling is a beautiful way to discover life. So enjoy the trip!See Reviews From Students
I have been teaching Spanish for 2 years now with students from all ages and nationalities😀.
Whether you are just starting or you have been learning Spanish before I can help you develop your Spanish skills so you can communicate with people that speak Spanish from every Spanish speaking country. Do not keep waiting.😁
I like to adapting my study plan depending on the needs of the student.
Did you know that 21 countries in the world have Spanish as an official language and 31 as an unofficial one? That means that if you learn Spanish you will speak the language that 15% of the countries on the world speak.
Don't forget to book a lesson so we can start working on your Spanish skills together. 😊See Reviews From Students

My name is Samuel and I live in Madrid. In 2013 I got my Spanish teacher Certificate and since then I have been teaching Spanish in many language schools -in person and the last two years mainly online due to the pandemic. I have also taught group classes and individual one to one classes in companies. I have also helped many students to pass DELE exams.
I have a Philosophy Degree as well from Universidad Complutense. Madrid. I also really love to talk about a wide range of topics. I enjoy listening and learning from my students. Everyone has interesting things to say. With me, you will be talking about things you like without noticing you are doing it in Spanish.
I can share with you many books, videos, infographics, newspaper articles etc in pdf format so that we have always fresh and juicy material to discuss. These last ones are a fantastic complement because sometimes the standard books for learning might be designed –what is fine- for generic purposes. Pdf files are included in the price.
I have taught students from every corner of the world and from very different backgrounds. I love learning from my students while I am teaching them.
I speak very fluent English so even if your knowledge of Spanish is 0 don’t be afraid. You will always be comfortable in my classes. I am also learning French so I haven’t forgotten how does it feel to be a beginner ;)
I hope to see you soon!

Hello dear students!
My name is Cristina and I’m a Spanish / Catalan native speaker from Valencia (Spain).
If you find yourself thinking...
- I‘m stuck even after studying Spanish since childhood
- I‘m afraid others won‘t understand my pronunciation
- I can‘t think in Spanish, I have to translate everything
If that‘s how you feel, I can change that. Here‘s how I know:
- I hold a BA degree in Translation Studies from Valencia University and a MA degree in Legal Translation (University of Alicante). I have also a postgraduate certificate in Modern Foreign Languages Teaching from Canterbury Christ Church University. Apart from my degrees from university, I hold certificates in teaching Spanish as a foreign language and in professional proofreading from European University of Madrid. And if that is not enough for you I am also an examiner for the Cervantes Institute, and that means that I perfectly know how DELE exam works ;).
- I have 4 years of experience in teaching Spanish as a second language in a secondary school and a private company in Italy and another year of teaching experience in two Secondary schools in England. I also have 3 years of experience teaching adults in online platforms (+1300 hours taught).
- I use a communicative methodology. That is, I analyse your needs to create tailored and challenging lessons with the best resources to communicate and write clearly and effectively.
- I can guarantee a friendly and supportive environment during our lessons.
And lesson after lesson you‘ll get the strategies, practice and support to get unstuck, speak clearly and sound natural. You‘ll definitely be able to participate in discussions, feel in control when you speak and organise your thoughts in Spanish.
I have been studying and teaching languages most of my life and I understand the difficulties of learning a new language. So worry not and let‘s start this adventure together!

¡Hola amigo! My name is Victor and I'm from Mexico.
If you are looking for an experienced, funny and patient teacher, here I am. I've been teaching Spanish to people of different backgrounds and countries for more than 10 years.
Besides my mother tongue, Spanish, I also speak English, German, French, Italian and I am learning Portuguese. I love teaching languages, to learn about cultures and traveling, that's why I'm ready and eager to help you learn Spanish. I will make you travel through my language and the Latin culture.
Teaching on line is something I really enjoy but I have also experience teaching different languages at the University, with all this knowledge and experience I can tailor my teaching to your learning method.
Learn Spanish with me! I'll be happy to meet you and to help you!
See you soon! ¡Hasta pronto!See Reviews From Students
If you're new to LanguaTalk, we'll provide you with a credit for a free trial lesson. Many, but not all, teachers offer these for free. If they do not, the price will be reduced to 30 percent of their full lesson price, so you can still try a session at a minimal cost.
Trial lessons are 30 minutes long. They allow you to evaluate whether the teacher is a good fit for you and experience learning online. The teacher will assess your level and try to understand your needs and interests so they can customize any classes you decide to take. You will be encouraged to speak in Spanish as much as possible, but you can also speak in English if needed.
If, after your trial lesson, you don't feel that the teacher is right for you, you can schedule a trial lesson with another teacher for 30 percent of their full lesson price.
Lessons are conducted one-on-one, allowing you to receive personalized attention from your teacher. classes are conducted via video call, and you can use any device with a stable internet connection and a webcam to join the lesson.
Your teacher will create a customized lesson plan based on your goals, learning style, and current level. During the lesson, you will have the opportunity to speak, listen, and interact with your teacher in real-time. Your teacher may also provide you with additional materials, such as audio recordings or written exercises, to help you practice and consolidate your learning.
Most students take 55-minute classes. However, some teachers also offer the option of 30-minute classes. If this is available, it will be noted on their profile (below their pricing and above the 'Buy Lessons' button).
In general, we recommend 55-minute classes for most students. You may want to consider 30-minute classes only if you have an intermediate level and only want conversation practice, or if the lesson is for a child.
On LanguaTalk, you can find highly qualified tutors who offer personalized 1-on-1 Spanish classes based on your goals and learning style. Here's how it works:
1 - Search for a tutor who meets your needs by reviewing videos, ratings, prices, and availability.
2 - Schedule a trial lesson. Many tutors offer a 30-minute trial for free, while others offer a discounted price.
3 - Take your personalized classes with your chosen tutor via video call. Or, you can try a different tutor if you prefer.
You don't need to enter any payment information to book a free trial session. Please only book a trial if you are interested in taking classes. Prices vary by tutor, and you can use filters to find a tutor who fits your budget. You can pay for each lesson individually or purchase multiple lessons at a discounted rate (view a tutor's profile to see their pricing options).
We're confident you'll enjoy learning with LanguaTalk. We are trusted by students around the world because of our transparency. We ask students to rate each lesson, and we display these ratings on the tutor's profile.
99.8% of lesson ratings are 5 stars. This is because, unlike other platforms, we only accept the top 10% of tutor applications.

The advantage of taking classes online is that you can learn at any time and from any location. When you select a teacher, check their calendar to ensure that they have available slots that fit your schedule. Some teachers may have limited availability due to high demand from other students.
Some teachers on LanguaTalk may offer local classes for adults, but most only provide online classes for adults as it is more convenient and allows them to work from home. In addition, many teachers do not teach Spanish in Crystal Lake as they live elsewhere in the world. If you book a lesson with a teacher, you should assume that it will be online unless the teacher specifically states that they offer in-person classes for adults in Crystal Lake.
There are several options for learning Spanish in Crystal Lake, whether you live in the city center or the suburbs. You can use an app or software program to learn basic vocabulary and grammar. You can also join group classes for adults with Spanish teachers in Crystal Lake if you prefer a social learning experience. Alternatively, you can take one-on-one classes for adults with a private teacher, which is more expensive but may be the most effective option if you have a good teacher. Learning online may make private teachers a more affordable choice. Prices vary based on the teacher, but are generally cheaper than in-person classes for adults in Crystal Lake.
Our research indicates that the average cost for private Spanish lessons in Crystal Lake is between $25-$35 per hour. Online teachers do not need to travel to you and often live in countries with a lower cost of living, so the hourly cost is generally lower.
If you prefer not to learn online with teacher, LanguaTalk may not be the right choice for you. Instead, you can search for teacher, we recommend giving online learning a try as it is often as good as in-person learning and allows you to access better teachers at a lower cost. You can also book a free trial session to see if it is right for you.
Sometimes students tell us that they're not sure about learning Spanish online because they think it’ll be completely different to learning face-to-face. But usually when they try it, they find that the experience is almost the same and they often build a solid relationship with their teacher.
Once you start a video call with your chosen teacher, you’ll be able to communicate with them as if you were in the same room. The teacher will typically also share learning resources with you (newspaper articles, YouTube, etc.) and you’ll be able to collaborate in real-time using a tool like Google Docs or Dropbox Paper.
