Frequently asked questions
Learning a language is a huge task, so it’s important to have strong personal reasons for picking it up! Overall, there are many good reasons to learn Spanish as a foreign language! Maybe the most important one is the global importance of Spanish. In fact, with an estimated 427 million native speakers, it is the second most spoken native language in the world, ranking ahead of English and only behind Mandarin.
In addition, it is estimated that 470 million people speak Spanish as their mother tongue, while more than 560 million people speak it as either their first or second language. It is the most popular foreign language in the United States and is one of the five most taught languages in the European Union.
Spanish is currently recognized as one of the official languages in 20 different countries. Among the best known of these are Spain, Mexico, Argentina, Costa Rica, Cuba, Colombia, Uruguay and Paraguay. Although it is not an official language here, there are well over 50 million Spanish speakers in the United States, making it the second-largest Spanish-speaking country on the planet. Only in Mexico are there more people who speak Spanish.
Aside from being an extremely widely spoken language and geographically widespread, Spanish is also extremely influential and important today. It serves as one of the six official languages of the United Nations and is one of the official languages of both the European Union and the World Trade Organisation.
Many people shy away from learning a new language. This is especially the case if class is held in large groups where you’re not likely to get individual attention or are intimidated by the group dynamic. That’s why Lingoda offers both small group and private lessons via Zoom, which you can book at any time so that you can adapt your learning schedule to your everyday life. It’s important to us that each student gets the individual attention they need and their education deserves.
Another challenge of learning a language comes with the teacher. In most schools, you choose a class based on availability only, not the teachers. That’s not the case at Lingoda. You can choose your own teachers as well as picking a time that suits you. Each of these teachers is a native speaker of the language they teach. This means that students learn the correct pronunciation at a higher speed. After each lesson, our students have the opportunity to anonymously evaluate the teachers.
Another great perk of learning online with Lingoda is how we make learning materials available to our students. All learning materials are available for download any time and interactive quizzes and activities become available after class. Give that your class timetable can be arranged according to your needs, it’s easy to bring online Spanish learning into your daily rhythm. In this way, learning Spanish is made as easy as possible and upon successful completion, you will receive an official language certificate in A1 to C1.
Just the basics: a strong internet connection, a computer to connect to the internet and the free video conferencing tool Zoom.
Spanish class happens when you want it to! That’s the beauty of taking Lingoda’s Spanish language course online. Our 24/7 group classes cover all time slots as we have teachers based across all time zones. Create a schedule that works for you and feel free to change it up as you need to.
Even if you’re a beginner, you’ll learn quickly with our immersive methods. Each of our online Spanish lessons combines speaking practice and situational training so that what you learn in the classroom can immediately be applied outside of it. We make sure that every sentence, activity and topic builds toward meaningful communication. Your needs are our focus whenever we create new, level-appropriate materials.
Great question! CEFR stands for Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. It is an internationally recognised framework that describes language ability from A1-C2. A1 being basic and moving up to C2 native-level proficiency. The CEFR focuses on how a student can communicate rather than just how much knowledge the student has, making it a practical framework that aligns with the real world.
All of our Spanish teachers are native speakers, no exceptions. They are also highly-qualified. We are strict with hiring only teachers that have years of experience and can provide the highest quality teaching. Our teachers are also trained with the Lingoda method and standard, so you can learn Spanish online smoothly.
Our students love learning with a variety of teachers because it means they are exposed to the range of accents present in the real world. This is just one of the many ways that the Lingoda classroom gets you to real fluency.
All materials are unique and specially created by Lingoda experts to align with CEFR. You can download the class materials for free and use them at any time. After class, you’ll also find a quiz and some exercises that you can use to help refresh and practice your new skills.
We offer a free placement test that we encourage you to take before you begin learning. The length of the test depends on your level. The higher your level, the more complicated the questions will become. You can take the test here.
Yes! You receive a certificate for each level you finish with Lingoda. Our certificates are issued in accordance with the CEFR and accepted by many institutions worldwide. To get a certificate, you’ll have to complete 90% of your classes in a module for a CEFR language (this does not include Business English).
