Our tried and tested
methodology

The Spanishative Method has been developed based on years of experience in teaching Spanish to English speakers from all over the world

Conversational

We believe that the best way to learn a language is by having lots of genuine conversations about things that are interesting to you

  • Start conversing from the beginning

    Our goal for beginners is to start speaking as soon as possible. Start speaking about topics you enjoy from even the first lesson.

  • Talk about your interests

    No more endless repetition of conjugations. We naturally remember things that interest us, and learning Spanish is no different.

Personal

We believing that the best conversations and learning happens when teachers and students get to know each other personally

  • Cross-cultural sharing

    Our teachers would love to hear more about your culture, and are happy to share about their cultures as well.

  • Get to know your teacher

    Real life conversations are often about connecting with and getting to know another person.

Flexible

Everyone has a different goal for learning Spanish, so we adapt our curriculum to help everyone with their objectives

  • Learn what you need

    At the start of the program, we go through an orientation call with you to understand your goals and assign you the right teacher.

  • Specializations

    For those who are learning Spanish for specific fields, such as medicine or business, we also offer specialisation paths.

Immersive

We provide an immersive language learning experience through our chamos program and our Medellín cultural immersion trip

  • Chamos & chamas

    Chamos are professional teachers who live with their hosts to immerse them in the Spanish language through daily use.

  • Medellín immersion trip

    Get immersed in Colombian and Latin culture with a trip to Medellín, and experience the language and culture firsthand.

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.

Frequently asked questions

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?

If you are unable to attend a session, please reach out to your assigned teacher to reschedule 12 hours before the session. Last minute reschedules will be subject to a case by case basis.

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.
