Private Lessons
Individual Spanish lessons are without doubt the most convenient way of learning Spanish as it gives you the freedom to shape your classes exactly how you want them to be. You decide the number of classes you want to take, where and when they take place and most importantly what they focus on. You control the pace and rhythm of learning maximising your progression.

Before we start you will be asked to provide us with detailed information on your current Spanish level and your objectives for the classes. Based on that information I create a 100% personalised study program, choosing best learning materials and diverse exercises to ensure that your personal study objectives are met and hopefully exceeded!

In class, you express yourself in different real life situations, applying your Spanish knowledge into your own personal context. Thanks to so much direct one-to-one personal contact, I quickly get to know my private students, which teaching techniques and learning methods you best respond to, allowing me to optimise your motivation and stretch them to your limits. You also get to know me, we have fun in class and from here we naturally develop a certain bond and a degree of friendship which totally removes your embarrassment or fear of speaking a foreign language.

Private Spanish Classes can be taken alone or can be combined with any Spanish Course offered by the School - my colleagues from the Student Care Team will be delighted to plan your classes so you have a perfect schedule.
Online Courses
Skype Spanish Classes are the perfect option for those who want to learn Spanish but live outside Madrid or have little time to study. They are also ideal for those who already have a good level of Spanish but want to be able to practice the language on a regular basis to maintain their current ability.

Having online Spanish classes is as simple as connecting to Internet – you can attend from the comfort of your own home at a time that suits you. As they are one-to-one classes, you follow a completely personalised program, having the freedom of choosing how you want your class to be, scheduling your weekly timetable to suit even the busiest agendas and having the possibility to cancel classes. The objective of Skype lessons are the same as that of our Individual Classes and the content doesn’t vary too much either. What´s different is the way the classes are taught. Skype courses have the advantage of Internet resources to give the class a real sense of fluidity and interactivity and the materials and resources used are adapted to online learning. Spanish grammar is explained in a simple but comprehensive manner and there is plenty of speaking and listening practice to increase your fluency. You can even ask me to help you with your upcoming Spanish exam preparation, work presentation or job interview.

Additionally, having your Spanish classes online feels like visiting Spain and brings you close to the language within seconds, not to mention the time you save not having to travel to your teacher´s house or language school.

Beginner or advanced learner – you will benefit from learning Spanish with experienced, native teachers from an Instituto Cervantes accredited school. I look forward to Skyping in Spanish soon!

P.S. If you have studied at AIL Madrid before, and have a preferred teacher, please let us know and we can arrange your classes with them.
