Frequently Asked Questions
for English & Spanish Learners
Are the Spanish and English language classes live?
Our instructors provide live classes for individuals and small groups (up to 6). In a cloud-based virtual and interactive classroom, language materials are shared, downloaded, and completed for an optimal learning environment.
What if my first language is not English or Spanish?
Our client learners are from around the world. From Japan, Brazil, India, Italy, and Russia to name just a few, our clients speak their native language fluently and work to bring their Spanish or English Language skills to a level of equal eloquence and practical proficiency.
How long will it take to learn a second language?
Goals for each client differ so that you decide when you have achieved full competency. We can all continue to improve our communication skills. Many clients maintain a retainer with us for support as needed when delivering important communication materials or negotiating important business.
How much will it cost to improve my second language skills?
We offer discounted rates on pre-purchased bundles of 12 and 24 hours. An additional discount is available for morning scheduling. We also have a referral program. Payment forms accepted include credit card, Zelle, and check.
How much language learning time should I schedule per week?
We recommend 3 hours per week to start. This builds a foundational pace of study and attention that is important for momentum to develop at the start of the learning curve. As the process continues, you and your instructor may decide that you would benefit as well from meeting once a week.
What if my schedule or job changes? What if I move?
Life happens! We understand that you need flexibility in planning and rescheduling. Email your instructor with 24-hour notification and arrange a change for that one session. You can also discuss and arrange long-term changes for a new schedule that suits your new environment.
Do I have to buy books and materials for my Spanish/English classes?
Our clients are responsible for their books and materials. The instructor will provide supplemental materials from time to time. In addition, clients are asked to bring in relevant material from work and home. This improves outcomes by increasing the use of newly learned language skills; they are more quickly internalized.
What English or Spanish language topics will we cover?
Your curriculum will be individualized for your needs with the four pillars of communication at the core; reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills are all developed to achieve the client's goals.
Can I get help preparing for standardized exams in English and Spanish like the TOEFL and IELTS?
Our instructors help native and non-native English and Spanish speakers prepare for standardized exams including USA naturalization exams, industry licensing, TOEFL, IELTS, SAT, LSAT, and GRE among others.
Will my lessons be recorded so that I can study and practice my language skills?
Lessons may be recorded at the client's request. Many learners prefer to review their lessons with audio and video so that they can dive more deeply into the information presented by the instructor. The recorded material is never released to the public without the explicit permission of the client.
