Frequently Asked Questions
Do you have questions about Spanish To Move®? We have the answers.
What is Spanish To Move?
Spanish To Move® is a Spanish learning program designed by experts to ensure effective and long lasting learning. It offers different courses to learn Spanish, from beginner to advanced levels, as well as Spanish classes 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.
How does the Spanish To Move method work?
With our method, you start by listening to short audio lessons with refreshing stories on a variety of topics. You can listen to them wherever you want, at any time of the day while doing many activities, such as driving your car, exercising, cooking, during your lunch break or even before going to bed.
Then, you start speaking by repeating aloud what you heard and by answering the questions from each lesson. In a few days, you will be able to grasp and speak Spanish, because this is how you learned your native language: first by listening and then by speaking!
And if you want to reinforce your knowledge or make sure that you are doing well, just take a look at the English translations, text/audio sync videos, and grammar clues that we have prepared for you, or choose one of our certified Spanish tutors for an individual live session according to your needs.
How is the Spanish To Move method different from traditional methods?
For most adults, learning a foreign language can be daunting, because most of the programs are focused on memorizing difficult grammar rules, verb conjugations, endless lists of words or flashcards. Furthermore, students are forced to use boring textbooks and have to take stressful exams.
Spanish To Move® helps you to learn Spanish easily and effortlessly, like a native, because it works in the same way you learned your native language: by listening. When you listen repeatedly to the same information, you are able to learn vocabulary and grammar patterns unconsciously, just like a baby learns. Just think about how you speak perfectly your native language, without having to memorize grammar rules. You just know that it sounds right!
How will I receive the lessons?
To get access to Spanish To Move®, you must create an account, select a course and order it via PayPal. You will receive a purchase order in your email and then you can access the course through the SIGN IN menu, on our website. The course you purchased will be there for you. You can study it directly from our website or download it in a ZIP file to use it anywhere, on any portable device.
What if I am absolute beginner and don't understand the Spanish lessons?
Our lessons have been designed from the elementary to the advanced levels, taking into account that anyone can learn Spanish without any prior knowledge.
However, we also offer you full English translations for the Elementary, Basic and Travel courses, to make you feel more comfortable in case you don't understand anything. In addition, the elementary vocabulary is also available in six other different languages: French, Portuguese, German, Chinese, Japanese and Korean.
How much time will it take me to learn each Spanish course?
Individual results with our system depend on a number of factors, including study time per day, current Spanish level, motivation of the student, etc. To properly learn each course (Elementary, Basic, Intermediate, Advanced and Travel), we suggest that you study one hour a day. Practice each lesson as much as you can. We suggest at least 20 times each lesson, and 5 to 10 times the same lesson over the next two weeks, to understand and practice words in different contexts. When you fully understand the meaning of the lesson and pronounce the words correctly, you can move on to the next lesson. We strongly recommend to reinforce this knowledge by having 1 or 2 live classes per week.
If you follow this recommendation, you will be able to become fluent in everyday conversations within 4-6 months.
Will I learn the Spanish used in Latin America or Spain?
90% of Spanish speakers in the world (about 400 million people) are in the Americas. Furthermore, most of the Spanish students are in the United States (about 8 million), the country where there are almost 50 million Spanish speakers. For these reasons, the accent used in our courses is the one used in Mexico, which is the country with the greatest number of Spanish speakers in the world (over 110 million). However, our courses use a "neutral" Spanish that any Spanish speaker can fully understand. Furthermore, differences between the Spanish used in the Americas (in the different countries where the language is spoken) and Spain do not prevent a person who speaks Spanish with a particular accent to understand someone else who uses a different accent. This distinction is similar to what happens with the American and British English accents.
What are Spanish Classes like?
Spanish classes are 50-minute private one-to-one live sessions on Skype®. These live sessions are led by a certified, native Spanish-speaking tutor, who prepares the session in advanced, in accordance with your needs, no matter if it is conversation, grammar or any other specific topic.
Our tutors come from different Spanish-speaking countries, so you can find the tutor with the Spanish accent you want to learn.
When you select a tutor and order a tutoring session, you will receive in your email a purchase order, with the information on the sessions you booked. The tutor will get in touch with you to ask you about your interests, so the lessons are more enjoyable for you. You can access the sessions via Skype®, from any device with an internet connection, a camera and a microphone.
How does the Refund Policy work?
