Many people find listening comprehension the most difficult aspect of language learning. Our online Spanish courses focus on colloquial language, to help you to understand what native speakers are saying. You will hear Spanish at normal native-speaker speed, and you’ll learn many expressions that you can use in order to sound more natural. Our virtual teachers explain the vocabulary, the expressions and some points of grammar that come up in the lessons. They also explain the historical and cultural content, which is just as important as the linguistic content when you participate in conversation with native speakers.
