HOW ARE YOUR STUDENTS PRACTICING SPANISH?
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.
WHAT WE DO
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 you decide to work with us this is how the whole experience looks like:
Customize Language Amigo program to class curriculum
Professor receives report (video recordings, assessment, etc.)
Learner receives welcome email and Toolkit
Learner selects Amigo and schedules video chat
20-30 minute video chat
a) Personalized feedback
b) Video recording
Learners can rate their experience
WHAT KIND OF CLASSES DO WE WORK WITH?
- High schools
- SPAN 100's
- Grammar, writing, conversation classes
- Master level classes
PROGRAM CUSTOMIZATION EXAMPLES
We customize our program based on your needs. Bellow some examples of what we can do:
FREE TOPIC CHATS
We provide Learners and Amigos with a Toolkit containing suggested topics and questions that make the conversation more fluent.
CHATS FOCUSED ON GRAMMAR
Each video chat focuses on a specific grammar structure. Amigos are trained to facilitate this learning process.
Video chat 1:
- Grammar Structure: Present
Video chat 2:
- Grammar Structure: Past and Imperfect
CHATS FOCUSED ON A SPECIFIC ACTIVITY
Each video chat focuses on a specific activity. For example, Learners and Amigos need to watch a short-film that will be discussed during the video chat.
Video chat 1:
Movie “Pájaros de verano”:
Watch the film and prepare 2 questions
Discuss questions and perspectives on the movie
We can provide recorded video chats and a performance report for every conversation and student
We provide economic and development opportunities to talented low and middle income college students in Latin America

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.
