Education in your own home via internet
One of the main advantages of online courses is that you can either learn on your own or with friends. Children can also benefit from online courses by learning alongside their parents.
Individual support for the online courses
This is definitely one of the biggest advantages of learning online. You can ask anything you want about the Spanish language or the online courses and get direct answers from your tutor. One of the most important aspects of learning a second language is autonomy and learning online puts you firmly in charge of your own learning.
Online Spanisch courses offer you a variety of life skills
You will be able to add technical skills to your CV thanks to the use of email and web browsing on the course. What's more, you will be able to use your knowledge of Spanish to browse online, opening up a whole new world of possibilities for you, both professionally and personally. You will be able to find and apply for jobs online, make travel plans and make purchases online.
You will be able to meet people from all around the world and find out about their hobbies, etc.
And, of course, when you study something you are truly interested in, it is more likely to stay with you, allowing you to really develop the skills needed to find information, formulate answers and ask questions. By cultivating this interest and gaining further knowledge, you remain fully aware of your own learning process.
Self-discipline in online Spanish courses
You might be under the impression that online learning requires a level of focus and dedication that you don't have. This isn't the case! The key to your success lies in understanding the importance of doing things for yourself. Online students are very much involved in their own learning process, making their accomplishments even more rewarding.
Online Spanish courses connect you to the world
Our online Spanish courses give you a real insight into both language and culture. Cultural awareness is important when it comes to learning a language and it goes without saying that learning about other cultures is essential for getting to know the people and the country itself.
There are now a number of different types of online Spanish courses available on the internet:
There are fully-online Spanish courses delivered via self-led learning platforms or portals. These allow you to learn at your own pace and are designed to support your development in a simple yet progressive and dynamic manner. What advantages do they have? They are ideal for those who would prefer to go at their own pace. You decide what you want to learn and when you want to learn it.
Blended learning courses are another option. These also utilise a self-led learning platform but in addition provide a teacher who gives regular classes by videoconference, either one to one or in a group setting.
Finally, there are private online Spanish classes via videoconference. In this case, we are referring to online Spanish classes in which, through platforms such as Zoom, you interact directly with a teacher in real time, again either one-to-one or in a group.
When you search the internet for online Spanish courses, you will find a wide range on offer.
So how do I know which course is right for me?
It is important to point out from the outset that everyone has different needs and a different learning style. This must be taken into consideration when choosing a course.
What are the advantages of Lengalia's online Spanish courses?
There are a number of key components to consider when choosing the right Spanish course for you. In designing and developing our online Spanish courses, we have taken the following aspects into account:
The online Spanish course should be based on a well thought out methodology.
The online Spanish course should clearly state the learning objectives that the student will achieve at the end of the course.
The online Spanish course should present the course topics in a logical order, and offer a flexible learning process that considers the needs of each student with alternative learning routes.
The online Spanish course should offer lessons with multiple multimedia activities and numerous exercises in order to master the topic covered.
The online Spanish course should allow students multiple opportunities to assess their learning progress, see where their strengths lie and where they need to practise more.
Suitable for every level
The online Spanish course should make it possible for students to continue learning regardless of their level. It should also make learning possible for students with no previous knowledge.
The online Spanish course should provide students with the option to revise the different Spanish grammar topics as and when required.
Contact with the tutor
The online Spanish course should allow students to contact the tutor by different means and get help quickly.
The online Spanish course should allow students to navigate and learn easily with all types of devices.
The online Spanish course should be attractive and intuitive. Lessons should be easy to understand and students should be able to choose which skill they want to work on (grammar, vocabulary, reading comprehension, listening comprehension, etc.).
Quality of the materials
The exercises that are part of the online Spanish course should be developed by experienced teachers and should be tested beforehand. This way you can be sure that you are at the right stage of the learning path. These learning paths make all the difference when it comes to choosing a quality online Spanish course.
Materials that motivate
Materials should be attractive and keep the learner interested and motivated. They shouldn’t be too complicated nor too easy, and learners should be able to work with them independently.
The online Spanish course should promote sustainable learning, i.e. the knowledge learned should be retained in your long-term memory.
Last but not least, before making your choice, you should find out whether your online Spanish course offers any accreditation. For example, for each Lengalia online Spanish course that you complete, you will be awarded a Spanish certificate based on the recommendations of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).
When it comes to learning a language, we all have to start from scratch at some point (even in our mother tongue)! Is this a disadvantage if you want to start one of the online Spanish courses? Quite the opposite, because you will be fully immersed in a learning methodology that ensures you acquire a solid and accurate base knowledge from the outset.
It doesn't matter how old you are, whether you already speak other languages or not (although that helps). It doesn't matter if you work and have little time to study. What counts are your desire, your motivation and your commitment.
Being a beginner isn’t a problem because at Lengalia we adapt to you.
- You have multiple learning tools with which you can learn basic vocabulary and grammar much more quickly than you think.
- You will learn to conjugate verbs easily thanks to our verb conjugator.
- You have audios, thousands of exercises and a team of tutors who will support you with the technical and didactic aspects of the e-learning platform at any time.
- In addition, if you are concerned about pronunciation, our online Spanish portal has a voice recorder, as well as multiple interactive exercises that will help you improve both pronunciation and writing in Spanish.
You don't have to know everything at the beginning, just getting started is the key to your success.
Before deciding to enrol in one of the many online Spanish courses on the market, it is common to wonder what you need to know before you start. Most of us have probably already had some experience in learning a language (at school with a teacher, using physical materials and with classmates, etc.).
When learning via an online Spanish course some processes are a bit different and that can cause doubts to arise. For those who wish to start one of the online Spanish courses - and want to be successful - we recommend that you take into account the following factors:
Learning is an attitude
While Lengalia offers you many online Spanish courses and tools, with cleverly designed learning paths, you are responsible for your learning. Willingness to learn, to make an effort to work on grammar, to master verbs, to memorise vocabulary, to practise your pronunciation... These are all components in being able to communicate fluently in Spanish.
Confidence in the methodology and didactics
If we are sure that we are going in the right direction, all we have to do is keep going. Success requires a clear methodology, one that is easily adapted to, motivating and that makes you feel you are making progress. This, in large part, is what determines the quality of our courses.
You set your own timetable, you choose when to study, what to study and how long to study for. It is always advisable to plan ahead and set aside time in your diary for Spanish. It is more effective to spend 10 minutes a day learning Spanish than one hour a week.
No matter how beautiful a language is or how motivating your online Spanish courses are in general, there will be days when you feel frustrated and think that you are not making progress or that the grammar is impossible, for example. However, in life we learn to persist (we have to so we can achieve our goals) and - when it comes to learning a language - this skill will be your best friend. All your dreams can come true if you have the courage to pursue them.
We refer here to learning characterised by constant change, where learning lives, grows, connects and extends beyond the boundaries of your online Spanish course. What do we mean by this? You could spend an hour a day with Lengalia but it might be just as motivating and important to watch clips or films in Spanish (on the internet or on TV), listen to podcasts in Spanish, read books, take part in an online language exchange with a native speaker, etc.
Mastering Spanish is not a matter of luck, it is the result of your effort and our determination to offer you what you need at all times.
Determining precisely how long you will need to learn Spanish fluently depends on many factors, including the knowledge you currently have and the number of hours you can dedicate regularly to your study.
For example, if a person with a beginner's level spends about 30 minutes a day studying, in about 6 months they will be able to understand frequently used phrases and expressions. In about 9 months they will know all the basic structures of the past, present and future. In about 24 months they will have reached an intermediate/advanced level where they will be able to use Spanish fluently, both spoken and written.
Do you work or study? Do you lead a busy life and are not sure how much time you will have for online Spanish courses? Don’t panic; at Lengalia we adapt to you. You set your own study times, and we cater to your needs. Our online courses require only your enthusiasm and your will.
We provide the methodology and the resources... The more effective the materials are, the longer the knowledge will remain in your memory. It doesn't matter if you spend ten minutes today and an hour tomorrow. Day by day you will build a firm foundation for learning Spanish.
On the other hand, it is vital for students to bring a positive and disciplined attitude, because Spanish - like German, English or any other language - cannot be learned in just a couple of months. So bear this in mind, if you have 20 minutes a day, make the most of it. Our methodology is designed to help you get the most out of today so you can continue to make progress tomorrow.
Also, don't hesitate to make the most of your downtime... when you are waiting for the train or the bus, or if you have a break at work, etc. You can use your mobile phone to practise your vocabulary, do a grammar exercise or learn the conjugation of a verb... The possibilities are endless, the resources are many...
We are committed to helping you learn Spanish online, all you have to do is get started, commit yourself to studying... and, of course, enjoy yourself! If you are interested in and motivated by your learning, you will be successful.
Is it difficult to learn Spanish on the internet?
When you search for online Spanish courses on the internet, the first things that might come to mind are, ‘Will I find this difficult? Will it cost me a lot? Will I be able to do it?’ Try not to get overwhelmed and keep the following in mind:
Learning a language can be challenging at times. The main secret to learning a language is discipline and a positive attitude. With willpower and an effective learning methodology, progress is noticeable, and when you see daily achievements, it motivates you even more.
Spanish is a very rich and varied language. In general, there is always some difficulty in differentiating the verbs ser and estar, as well as understanding the subjunctive mood or achieving a good pronunciation of the j or r sounds.
However, with an online Spanish learning portal (or e-learning platform) such as Lengalia, you have at your disposal its effective methodology and high quality tools that will help you achieve all these skills at your own pace. It is often easier than you think!
