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.

¡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! 😉

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 Gloria. I was born in Barcelona but nowadays I live in a quiet place not far from the city. I am bilingual in Spanish and Catalan and I also speak English and French.
I have been teaching Spanish as a second language online since January 2015 and I have been teaching private classes in other topics to teenagers for about 15 years. Before teaching I had jobs related to my Higher Technical Certificate in Administration.
I know how hard is to learn a language, I know it because I earned two certificates in languages, my First Certificate in English at the Polytechnic of Central London and a Certificat de la Langue Française à l’ l’Alliance Française de Paris.
But what about my lessons? if you book lessons with me, we are not going to do only grammar. We are going to speak!
I will plan lessons according to your needs, level and desires and I’ll correct your mistakes throughout the lesson. I can help you with your pronunciation, vocabulary, expressions and grammar and we’ll focus on your needs based on our conversations.
Speaking is the most difficult goal to achieve and you’ll talk with me without any pressure. Step by step, we'll improve your ability to speak naturally.
If you have time to study on your own I’ll give you homework after the class.
But before you make a decision, you can book a trial lesson to find out if I am the right person to help you learn Spanish.See Reviews From Students
Hola a todos, me llamo Luis y vivo en Cáceres, España. I live between Madrid and Seville, so my accent is in the middle of these two. I am a methodic teacher, I use "The Thinking Method", combining Transferrable words from English and the most common words in Spanish to build up those sentences to achieve better communication. I also love history and culture (film, music, literature, geography) ¡Nos vemos en clase!See Reviews From Students
Passionate about languages and intercultural exchanges, I have taught English and Spanish as foreign languages for over 15 years in Puerto Rico, France, and online. I have had the opportunity to teach a wide variety of students from various backgrounds, integrating multicultural teaching resources to diversify learning styles. I happen to believe that there is not one and only way of teaching or learning a foreign language. Therefore, I adapt my lessons and methods to the students’ objectives, needs and interests. My goal is always to offer an open, honest, communicative and supportive environment in which every student can feel motivated and appropriately challenged.See Reviews From Students
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!

I offer conversation practice and structured courses, from absolute beginner to C1, grammar drills and homework if you wish. Wide experience with adults and senior students. I will provide you with notes and examples from our lessons, during the lesson in Google Docs, or after the lesson, via e-mail. You don't need to decide in advance if you prefer Latin American Spanish or European Spanish, I can teach you the main differences and help you decide.
In our first lesson or trial we will figure out how your learning plan will be, depending on your individual needs, learning style and goals. If it's your first online lesson, there's no need to stress, I'm very understanding and patient.
Oh and to tell you a little about me...I love animals, languages, reading and traveling.See Reviews From Students
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,

The beauty of taking lessons online is that you can learn anytime, anywhere. When you choose a tutor, just check their calendar to make sure that they have available times that fit your schedule. Some tutors have limited availability as they already have a lot of students.
The vast majority of students take 55-minute lessons. But some tutors also provide the option of 30-minute lessons. If they do, you’ll see this noted on their profile (below their pricing and above the ‘Buy Lessons’ button).
55-minute lessons are recommended for most students. In general, we only suggest considering 30-minute lessons if they’re for your child, or you have an intermediate level and only want conversation practice.
New to LanguaTalk? We'll give you a credit for a free trial session. Many, but not all, tutors offer these for free. If they do not, the price will be just 30 percent of their full lesson price, so you can still try a session at minimal cost.
Trial sessions last 30 minutes. They allow you to assess whether the tutor is a good fit for you, and get a feel for learning online. The tutor will assess your level and aim to understand your needs and interests so that they can customise any lessons you decide to take. You'll be encouraged to speak in Spanish as much as possible, but of course you can speak in English too!
If, after your trial session, you don't feel that the tutor is quite right for you, you can book a trial with another tutor for just 30 percent of their full lesson price.
Lessons are taught 1-on-1 so that you receive your tutor’s full attention and can make fast progress. Communicating via video call, you’ll be able to talk to your tutor and share learning materials as if you were in the same room.
The tutors vary in terms of their teaching methods, resources, experiences, and personalities. So we suggest you look at several profiles to choose the best tutor for you. Whichever Spanish tutor you pick, they'll aim to tailor the lessons to your individual needs.
On LanguaTalk, you can find exceptional tutors for 1-on-1 Spanish lessons tailored to your goals and learning preferences. Here’s how to try it for yourself:
1 - Find your ideal tutor by browsing videos, reviews, pricing and availability.
2 - Book a trial. Many tutors offer a 30-minute trial for free; others charge a discounted price.
3 - Take personalised lessons with your new tutor via video call. Or try someone else.
No card is required to book a free trial session. Please only book if you're considering taking lessons. Pricing varies by tutor and you can use the filter to find someone who fits your budget. You can pay one lesson at a time, or buy in bulk for a discount (open a tutor's profile to see their pricing options).
We’re confident you’ll love learning via LanguaTalk. We're trusted by students all over the world because we're transparent. We ask students to rate each lesson, and we display reviews on tutors’ profiles.
99.8% of lesson ratings are 5 stars. Why? Because unlike other platforms, we accept only the top 10% of tutor applications.

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 tutor.
Once you start a video call with your chosen tutor, you’ll be able to communicate with them as if you were in the same room. The tutor 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.
Whether you live in the city centre or the suburbs of Irvine, there are many options for learning Spanish. You could use an app or a software program if you're looking to pick up basic vocabulary and learn some grammar rules. Alternatively, you could attend group lessons with Spanish tutors in Irvine if you're keen for a social experience. Or, you could take 1-on-1 lessons with a private tutor. This isn't the cheapest way to learn a language but it's possibly the most effective, assuming you have a good tutor. Learning online rather than face-to-face may make private tutors a more affordable option. Check the tutor profiles above to see how much it's likely to cost. Prices vary a lot depending on the tutor, but will usually be cheaper than learning with a Spanish tutor in Irvine, face-to-face.
If you're really not keen on learning with a teacher via video call, LanguaTalk isn't going to be the right choice for you. You can instead search for a tutor on a local service listing website, or put up an advert in your local area. We do encourage you to give it a try learning online though - you've got nothing to lose as you can book a free trial session. Most people find the experience is as good as learning face-to-face, but with the benefit of having access to better tutors at a lower cost.
Our research suggests that the average cost for private Spanish lessons in Irvine is somewhere between $25-$35 per hour. As online tutors do not need to travel to you and they often live in countries with a lower cost of living, the hourly cost tends to be significantly lower.
Tutors on LanguaTalk sometimes provide lessons locally, but most only provide online lessons as it is more convenient and allows them to work from home. In addition, most tutors are not teaching Spanish in Irvine because they're living elsewhere in the world. If you decide to book with a tutor, you should assume that they can only teach you online.
