What can I expect from my first class?
During the first class your teacher will encourage you to speak about you, your family, your hobbies and your job, among other topics, in different verb tenses. That way your tutor will be able to determine your level of Spanish and give you a free skill level assessment. After the conversation, your tutor will point out some grammar mistakes you may have made and work on them with you, we guarantee that you will leave the class having improved and learned something new. If you are a complete beginner, the dynamics are a little different, instead of focusing the class on your ability to speak, you will receive a full hour of Spanish immersion for only $19.
What happens after the first class?
After the first class, our team will get in touch with you to see what you thought about the lesson. If you decide that you want to keep studying with us, you just need to let us know how many classes you’d like to buy and we’ll send an online invoice, just like we did for the first class. The more classes you buy, the more benefits you get. Here’s a list of our perks
Where are classes held?
All of our classes are held at Simple Spanish main office on 1875 Connecticut Avenue, NW on the 10th floor. Sometimes our tutors will meet their students at cozy cafes or libraries around Dupont Circle area. If you have a special request, let us know! we’ll try to accommodate your needs as much as we can.
How often do I have to take classes?
You can take classes as often as you wish. We understand that life can get busy at times and we don’t want you to stress about your Spanish lessons. Some students like booking their classes in advance, some others email their teacher week by week whenever they find a spare hour in their calendars. We think flexibility is huge and that’s why our students love coming to class so much.
