lessons

How are lessons being held?

Classes are held via Skype or Google Hangouts. During the classes we will share documents, images, videos and audios through the sharing screen option of Skype/Google Hangouts and/or Google Drive and Watch Together.

How does the trial lesson work?

The trial lesson lasts approx. 25 minutes. In the first part, we will speak about your needs, goals, interests and previous knowledge. In the second part, we will do some exercises that will allow me to assess your spanish level. The trial lesson will help you to decide if you would like to learn Spanish this way. 

How do you organize group sessions?

They are via Skype or Google Hangouts and can consist of up to 4 students. Students decide with whom they want to learn together with. The advantages are lower session prices, learning with friends and colleagues, as well as the possibility of having group conversations. 

 

How long does a lesson LAST?

Lessons last 50 minutes. I recommend taking two classes per week and doing at least one hour of work at home in order to rapidly see progress.

What computer requirements do I need?

You will need a desktop-computer or a laptop with a fast internet connection (no dial-up) and Skype or Google Hangouts. I recommend you to use headphones/a headset. Google Drive (and therefore a Google Account) is also necessary as I share content and material through it. If you have a Google Account, you can already sign in with Google Drive or Google Hangouts.

 

Do I need to buy materials for the lessons?

No, you don´t. In the courses I provide material for every lesson, as well as homework. We will be using texts, exercises, audio, video, images, games, etc.

Do I have to do homework?

That is your decision. I personally recommend doing some homework or self-study to advance faster but it is completely up to you.

How do I book the dates and times for my lessons?

Maximum 24 hours after payment, I will send you an email with my calendar where you can check my availability and book the dates and times that are good for you. 

Lessons start at the full hour and last 50 minutes (for example: 10:00-10:50). You can also book two lessons on a row (for example: 10:00-11:40).

Please note! My time zone is Madrid, Spain (GMT +1/ Summer time GMT +2). If you live in a different time zone, check on my calendar if my working hours fit your needs!

Can I cancel or reschedule a lesson?

Yes, you can if you do it up to 24 hours before its beginning by email. If cancelled within 24 hours before the start of the lesson, the lesson will become void/will expire. Expired/void lessons are not refundable.

What happens if I am not on time for my lesson?

I will wait for 15 minutes to teach the remaining booked time. If after 15 minutes the student is still not reachable, the class will count as a "no –show". No-shows are not refundable.

Can i transfer my lessons to someone else?

Unfortunately, at the moment this is not possible. If you want to buy lessons as a present, please, get in contact with me before booking.
