An enthusiastic and experienced  human team!

We are a team of teachers that for many years has been dedicated to the study of languages and teaching Spanish for non native speakers. We can assure you that in the study of foreign languages, the most important and significant factor of language learning is Communication.

It is better to have less knowledges and acquire the ability to use them correctly in a natural way, than to try to learn a lot and not be able to communicate in the language what we are learning naturally, fluently and confidently.

This knowledge and the fact that the majority of the students feel frustrated with the results of their learning, has led us to carry out an exhaustive investigation on the traditional teaching methods, and the possible causes of their failure.

We are passionate about the study of foreing languages, and in our own learning experience we also though that traditional language classes were boring. We coudn’t understand teachers and we felt too ambarrased to speak.

All methods of language teaching included a lot of grammar and endless verb lists and their conjugations with a lot of emphasis on vocabulary memorization, which made us, as well as most students, feel very demotivating.

We also studied at home with textbooks, listening practice exercices, grammar drills and flahscards, but none of these things helped us to speak in anyway.

The few words we did know in other languages always seemed to escape our minds in conversations. The truth was that we were not able to communicate.

We felt that regularly misunderstood the fast speech, unclear accents and casual vocabulary of native speakers. Another terrifying thing was to be always asked to repeat what we have said because our pronunciation was so awful.

That led us to a deep feeling of being stupid and ashamed, and nearly ready to quit because we thought we would never get fluent.

During the best moment of our language learning frustration we wondered how we had learned our own language and the answer was presented with total clarity:
Just as children do, in a practical way, By Repetition and with focus only on communication!

T

That was how we finally realized that our language learning problem was not ourself but the system.

This Discovery made us design a learning method based on real communication, like native speakers. We could verify that our method allow us to became confident speakers in a very short time.

For that reason our way of looking at teaching a language is just the opposite of traditional. We focus on emphasizing communication, introducing grammar and verbs in a natural way, so that students internalize them without even realize it.

We build on the learning model of young children when they start talking. All the effort is made in a practical way through repetition.

We improved our own level of communication by our repetition method with focus on enjoyment and the results soon appeared.

That was the true way to learn. We discovered that with our methodology not only had we experienced tremendous progress in a very short time, but also that anyone following our system, step by step, could learn to communicate in Spanish with total guarantee.

Our enthusiasm grew as we saw the results in our students, and today we have helped thousands of people from all over the world to learn the true Spanish language of Spain, and to communicate fluently with conversational Spanish.
