ME AS A TEACHER AND TEACHING STYLE
I consider myself to be an easy person to talk to, patient and fun. I have experience teaching different kinds of students from kids to adults in both online and classroom setting (more than 1300 lessons online + 3 years of classroom setting experience). I have been implementing a combination of the Flipped classroom and communicative approach into the lessons and so far, I have seen great improvement in my students' ability to communicate.
TYPES OF LESSONS AND MATERIALS:
Flipped classroom programme: It'll especially boost your Speaking skills in an organised, structured and visual way. Materials will be sent every weekend (video lessons, PDFS, flashcards, grammar games...) and all skills will be covered. In class, we’ll try to practice what you learnt through speaking activities.
Flex lessons: They can be a mix of structure lesson (the one above) and flexible lessons. You can also choose practicing your Spanish through my interactive magazine (B1-B2) which includes: articles, videos, expressions ... In class we can do debates and discussions around these topics.
Conversation programme: Based on the books “Conversar en español I & II”. We’ll do lot of controlled speaking practice. The course also includes access to the Power Points , audio files and notes from the lesson.

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! 😄 I'm the cheerful Mexican teacher you've been looking for to learn Spanish!
My name is Karim and I hold a degree in Foreign Languages and a certificate as a Language Teacher from the University of Cambridge. I've been teaching Spanish since 2014 and learning languages for 10 years now. So I know what it feels like to struggle with a foreign language both as a student and as a teacher.
Generally, I'm a dynamic, joyful, and patient teacher, so there's no problem if you're a beginner and '¡Hola, amigo!' is the only phrase you tell your Hispanic friend; or if you're intermediate and you'd like to improve your level to travel or study abroad. You'll be taught by using the best teaching methods and approaches to become fluent enough to be able to speak with more than 450 million people around the globe. 🌎
Your lessons will be fully customized according to your own needs. In general, we will have conversations based on your goals and interests so that you actively learn and practice vocabulary and structure. You won't be taught too many grammar rules unless you require this.
So, what are you waiting for? Hit the "book trial" button and prepare yourself for a thrilling journey!
I very much look forward to speaking with you in a trial lesson! 😉

My name is Melina and I am from Peru. I studied foreign languages at the National University of Cajamarca in the north of Peru and I got a degree in Education – Foreign languages. I speak Spanish (native) and English (B2) very well.
I will help you to learn Spanish for you to achieve your specific goals taking into account your needs, your level and your learning process. Our lessons will include videos, everyday Spanish conversations, slides and more. We will also have cultural activities such as gastronomy, music and tourism. The four skills to learn a foreign language will be included as well: reading, writing, listening and speaking, and you will also have the grammar so that you can understand the language and produce it.
I have worked with people from different ages and levels and I have helped some of them to pass international exams. Over the last 20 years I have taught English and Spanish and I always try to do my best for my students to enjoy the lessons, have fun and above all to learn.
I like meeting people and sharing my experience with them so I hope you can be one of them. If you book a trial lesson with me you will not regret it.
See you soon,

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!

Teaching Spanish is one of my passions and I like that my students also feel passionate about learning and improving their skills every day.
I firmly believe that learning Spanish should be fun, exciting and inspiring. My main goal is for my students to learn, improve and achieve their goals.
In my classes we will focus not only on grammar, but also on your pronunciation, comprehension, interaction and writing. You will learn by speaking, reading, writing and listening. You will improve your Spanish through simple explanations and we will focus on your interests and hobbies. All my classes include: personalized study plan, audiovisual materials, assignments and tests.

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.
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.
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.
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.

There are several options for learning Spanish in Santa Monica, 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 Santa Monica 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 Santa Monica.
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.
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 Santa Monica 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 Santa Monica.
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.
Our research indicates that the average cost for private Spanish lessons in Santa Monica 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.
