HOW ARE YOUR STUDENTS PRACTICING SPANISH?
Spanish is one of the most studied languages in the world!
Most people studying Spanish lack opportunities to practice their conversational skills with native speakers in an informal and practical setting; hence it is difficult for them to improve their level of fluency.
We connect trained native speakers ‘Amigos’ with Spanish language ‘Learners’ who want to improve their communication skills.
We partner with universities that teach Spanish and customize our program to match their Spanish class curriculum
HOW IT WORKS
After your university decides to work with us this is how the whole experience looks like:
Customize Language Amigo program to class curriculum
Learner receives welcome email and Toolkit
Learner selects Amigo and schedules video chat
20-30 minute video chat
a) Personalized feedback
b) Video recording
Professor receives report (video recordings, assessment, etc.)
Learners can rate their experience

Nina S., Learner
Language Amigo really helped me loose the fear of speaking, and made me feel more confident. I also learned it's okay to make mistakes, to not always make sense, but to keep trying and practicing.
I had worked with a larger and older competitor of Language Amigo before, with some limited success. I had a much better experience with Language Amigo because of their remarkable flexibility and willingness to customize. I plan to use them in a number of future courses.

Fue realmente emocionante, divertido y agradable hablar con personas que tienen una cultura diferente, pero con las que también tenemos muchas cosas en común.
