There are many ways to learn Spanish. Apps are a great way to learn vocabulary and grammar on the go, be it at home, on the way to work or at the gym. But you will find that these apps don’t get you to practise your newly acquired Spanish language skills. What do you do? You have three options now: travelling to a Spanish speaking country, attending a Spanish class or hiring a private Spanish tutor.
Practising your Spanish
Travelling to Spain or South America is the best way to put your Spanish to use. You can order food and drinks in restaurants, go on guided tours in Spanish and speak to the locals. Most likely, you can only book so many holidays to practise your Spanish, and post-holidays, you are back in London and have to eagerly await the next holiday until you can speak Spanish again.
Spanish language classes
Then there are Spanish classes. You get to speak to your teacher and fellow course participants. You benefit from a structured syllabus. However, your Spanish will improve at the pace of the slowest learner, and this may not necessarily be you. Most likely, your Spanish course is taking place on fixed days and times that are not always easy to schedule around a busy working week.
Private Spanish tutor
A private Spanish tutor may be the answer to improving your Spanish with a bespoke syllabus and at your level. The tutor will focus on you during the entire Spanish lesson, and you can learn at your pace, be it fast or slow. Learning with a private tutor is the most intense language learning experience. Course dates and times can be scheduled week to week as a tutor will have more flexibility than can be found with a language class. Ninety minutes of language tuition once or twice a week quickly expands your vocabulary, improves comprehension, refines pronunciation, consolidates your Spanish and improves confidence.
