The result is Spanish To Move®, an easy to use program, accessible, with a pedagogical design, which helps students to learn and speak Spanish from the first moment.

Method

Spanish To Move® programs have been designed on the basis of psychological and linguistic research to ensure effective and long lasting learning. We follow the direct (natural) method of teaching, developed to immerse the learner in Spanish in the same way as the learning of the mother-tongue: in a natural way. Teaching is done in Spanish, grammar is taught intuitively, there is a focus on speaking and listening, and only useful everyday language is taught.

This method has been adopted by key international language schools such as Berlitz and Inlingua, and many of the language departments of the Foreign Service Institute of the U.S. State Department.

We offer different courses to learn Spanish, from beginner to advanced levels, as well as Spanish classes via Skype where students can practice and speak in real time with certified, native Spanish-speaking tutors. Our program is easy to use, portable, inexpensive, Money Back Guarantee, and offers interesting lessons in the Spanish used by native speakers in everyday situations.
