How much time do I need to study each week?
At Hispanissimo, we suggest dedicating 3 hours a week to Independent-Study along with 2 Private Live Lessons per week (30 mins each), totaling 4 hours per week. This level of dedication will allow the average learner to typically complete one whole level within 5-6 months. Our course is made up of 135 units; organised in 5 levels; A1(Beginner), B1, B2, and C1 (Advanced). As you increase your levels, ( B1,B2,C1) it might be necessary to allow yourself a bit more time to complete each level (maybe 8-10 months). However, this is very much dependant on each learner personally and it is exactly why Hispanissiomo is the perfect way to learn! Your learning pace and objectives are yours to create and achieve. The more time you dedicate to your studying, the sooner you will be speaking with ease! We know we don’t really need to say this; learning Spanish demands time and great effort. But the payoff is quickly seen when your start speaking, dreaming, joking and texting new friends in Spanish!
Is Hispanissimo only for beginners?
Does Hispanissimo work on mobile phones?
Can I only take Private Live Lessons?
Truthfully, it is not recommended by Hispanissimo. It would be like having a glass of wine without a tapa; they are ok to have on their own, but we Spanish believe they are best experienced together!
Here at Hispanissimo, we have built a coworking system of Independent-Study and Private Live Lessons to ensure a complete engagement and integration of all the Spanish language skills. Independent-Study gives you the grammar and vocabulary needed to use in real conversations during the Private Live Lessons with a native Spanish speaker. All of these building blocks learned and reinforced help you work both academically (mastering the structure) and practically (use of natural spoken language outside a classroom) to ensure confidence and fluency in Spanish.
What are Private Live Lessons?
Private Live Lessons are guided, 30 minute one-on-one video conversations with a native Spanish speaker,on Skype or Zoom, or Google Hangouts if you prefer. Your teacher acts as a coach not only in Private Live Lessons but also when you are involved in self-study on our multimedia and interactive platform. Your tutor can provide advice and guidance to help you to clarify ideas and to suggest additional tasks. Learn more on our “how it works” page.
