In the spring of 2014, Abraham Arechiga and Alvaro Sanchez-Diaz embarked upon an idea they had to bring conversational Spanish language learning to people by combining an eclectic learning approach with a personalized language program delivered online in blocks of 55-minute sessions.
Their enterprise, Spanish55, is based out of Tijuana and offers professionally designed and delivered online language lessons to those who want to study and practice Spanish from the comfort and convenience of their own home.
Lessons are offered at all levels by trained and certified language instructors: to absolute beginners who are learning Spanish for the first time, those trying to build on their current grasp of the language, intermediate-level students who want to carry their abilities to higher stages, as well as advanced Spanish speakers who are seeking to sharpen their vocabulary, pronunciation, and conversation skills.
Spanish55 takes time to understand your needs and assigns coaches accordingly, as well as on your personal interests and professional goals. Students can attend classes as often as they like by connecting via Skype at a prearranged time. Simultaneous audio and video aids the learning experience, and Skype’s text-chat and file transfer features enable the instructors to clarify points as the lesson progresses and send electronic hand-out documents to each student.
The company offers flexible pricing options, with packages ranging from 1 session to a block of 50 sessions—the more lessons you commit to, the less expensive each one is.
The qualified instructors, who are proficient in English and Spanish, work from Spanish55’s purpose-designed teaching facilities which ensures consistency and quality for all students. The company is keen to ensure its customers get the best possible distance learning experience and back this intention with a refund guarantee.
