Our process

What makes us different

The Spanishative Method is based on Carteli's Methodology, a tried and tested method for teaching Spanish to English speakers. Over the past few years, our teachers have been constantly refining the method as we help students from all over the world become conversational in Spanish.

Instead of focusing on endless repetitons of conjugations and vocubulary, our goal is instead to get our students speaking as soon as possible, even from as early as the first lesson.

We also believe that the process of learning Spanish should be made as fun and enjoyable as possible, as students naturally remember things that are interesting to them. We encourages students to speak about their favourite topics via the following ways and more:

  • Building a personal relationship between the student and teacher
  • Flexible curriculum that adapts to student's goals and interests
  • Introduction of cultural elements though audiovisual material

A proven track record

Many students from all over the world learn and improve their Spanish with Spanishative. Find out what our students have to say about us, or learn more about our methodology.

What I loved the most was the opportunity to speak with people who speak nothing but Spanish because I was forced to use what I had learnt. Amazing experience, revolutionary methods. Spanishative is easily the best way to learn Spanish.

How will the sessions be conducted?

All sessions, unless otherwise specified, will be conducted online via Zoom. Your assigned teacher will send you a contact request prior to your first session.

What if I cannot make it for a session?

How is my assigned teacher selected?

When you sign up for one of our programs, we will schedule a quick 30 minutes call with you to better understand your current level and goals. We will then assign you the best teacher based on your requirements.

Can I change my assigned teacher?

We consider many factors when selecting the right teacher for each student. However, although very rarely, certain students may not feel comfortable with their assigned teacher, and in that case we will assign them a new teacher.

Do I need a spare room to host my chamo?

Our chamos are professional Spanish teachers who live with their hosts and teach them Spanish in an immersive way. If you do not have a spare room to host your chamo, we can arrange for them to live at a hotel close to you.
