In this episode I'm joined by Spanish teacher Maria Ortega Garcia, who shares unique insights as both a language learner and teacher.
Ah, the age-old question: How long does it take to learn Spanish?
It's not easy to answer, as there are a lot of factors involved.
However, in this post I'll do my best attempt and include a lot of examples and supportive documentation.
Let's dive in!
Pablo Roman, founder of DreamingSpanish comes on the show to talk about his experiences learning Japanese in 6 months, learning Thai, and developing materials and resources for learning Spanish.
American Expat in Madrid, Daniel Welsch comes on the show to talk about his experience learning Spanish, moving to Madrid and making a living as an English teacher and blogger/youtuber.
Instead of a Podcast this week I sat down with Olly Richards to give me some pointers on how to advance from intermediate spanish and beyond. We also talked about his new project: Fluent Spanish Academy, and what made him start it.
Baselang is an online Spanish tutoring service, where you can get high-quality one-on-one tutoring classes. Is it worth your time and money? Let's find out in this Baselang Review.
In this review, we'll take a look at the types of services the platform offers, and how its “Real World” subscription differs from its “Grammarless” programme. We'll also dissect the pricing of both programs, and see if it's worth the cost. At the end of this review, you should have a good idea of whether Baselang will work for your language-learning needs.
Update January, 2024:
Prices are increasing to $179/mo on January 7th. You can lock in the lower rate of $149/mo forever by subscribing before this date.
Baselang has also upgraded their proprietary platform and curriculum:
- Better teacher search engine, including nationality filters so that you can easily discover teachers according to your needs.
- A dramatically improved curriculum with more detailed lessons, interactive games, and good-looking slides
- Saved chat history: Now any chat between you and your teacher is saved directly on the platform (this stays even if you cancel the subscription and return at a later date!)
