Spanish for beginners course

The essential course to learn the bases of Spanish in a fun, effective way

You love listening to salsa music and dancing it, of course. You are really passionate about the Cuban culture but you only know the basics in Spanish.

You would love to feel the joy of singing the song's lyrics, the satisfaction of being able to interpret them when you dance and to enjoy yourself even more than you already do!

On the other hand, you dream of travelling to Spanish-speaking countries, of being able to communicate with your Cuban or Spanish friends and of being able to understand easily the dance workshops with the best-known Cuban teachers. 

If you have been thinking about improving your Spanish, about going further and deeper and feeling at ease...

The time has come to take the next step!

With this video course you are going to get to a pre-intermediate level in Spanish and continue the adventure of learning a new language in the best of ways... with lots of Cuban music and culture! 

It will be a trip, as suggested in the title, to another language level, with great music and a great atmosphere! It will be an immersion in the Spanish language and in the Cuban culture.

And if you want this adventure can become a real trip. All of the modules will give you the vocabulary and the key elements to prepare a real trip to Cuba (cuisine, accommodation, practical information, activities, cities, landscapes, history, etc.) and the final project of the course will be to actually prepare this amazing trip! 

Some information about me: Spanish is my first language, I have a lot of experience in online teaching and a great passion for teaching my language and for Cuban dance, music and culture.

So let's go for it! Let's learn and have fun!

This video course includes several exercises, a live interactive lesson every week and the constant support of a private Facebook group.

Buen material, clases útiles y divertidas

János (Boston, USA)

Las clases estan mas interesantes que otros cursos de Espanol por la música. La música ayuda estudiar palabras nuevas y conocer la cultura Cubana mejor. Laura hizo un muy buen material y los temas estaban ineteresantes y bien conectadas con la música y cultura de Cuba. Las clases de Zoom fueron útiles y divertidas y Laura nos ayudó mucho no solo en las clases pero antes y despues tambien.

Une formation que je vous recommande sans hésiter

Kevin (Lille, France)

Español para salseros. Un mélange entre un cours convivial où on apprend plein de choses et un brainstorming sur une thématique précise . On apprend la vocabulaire , la grammaire, la culture et aussi des chansons de salsa cubaine . Ce que j’adore c’est à la fois le parallèle entre les expressions typiques espagnol et les expressions purement cubaines . Une formation que je vous recommande, sans hésiter c est simple , efficace et on apprend réellement. 💪🏿💪🏿🙏🏿 Merci à Laura « La profesora » »pour la mise en place de ce programme et pour le temps que tu nous accordes . te agradezco tu paciencia y tu pedagodía porque somos alumnos , grandes principiantes🙏🏿🙏🏿 [Todas las opiniones provienen de nuestra página en Facebook - Visítala para ver más]

I thoroughly recommend this course

Michael Shannon (UK)

I came across Laura's spanish course on the internet quite by chance and would thoroughly recommend it if you are contemplating a dance holiday to Spain or Cuba sometime in the near future - hopefully when everything gets back to normal. It will give some good insights and is ideal in the run up to a holiday. The course I have been doing combines spanish grammar, conversations and everyday expressions as well as an appreciation of cuban culture and music. We focused on several songs from Los Van Van (one of my favorite bands) which I really enjoyed. There are weekly zoom sessions with online learning materials such as quizzes and exercises. One learns a lot off the other participants as well and Laura is very precise with her pronunciation which is a great help. I have dabbled with spanish courses in the past where I only knew the most basic expressions and vocabulary but feel I have learned quite a lot in a short space of time with this one.

Lancez-vous dans l'aventure ! (J'ai testé le cours)

Anne (Lille, France)

J'ai pu tester l'apprentissage de l'espagnol avec Laura. Les cours sont dispensés via des vidéos et des exercices à faire chaque semaine; la culture cubaine ,les chansons sont utilisées comme support. une réunion zoom avec les différents étudiants est organisée pour pratiquer à la fin de la semaine pour approfondir les connaissances ,poser les questions relatives au cours et parler bien sûr . En cas de besoin Laura est très disponible et il suffit de la contacter par message pour obtenir de l'aide. il est également possible d'avoir un entretien supplémentaire via zoom si on le souhaite. il est plaisant de travailler avec cette méthode car on se connecte quand l'on veut , au rythme souhaité.. Objectivement il y a beaucoup à apprendre à retenir , c'est assez intense mais Laura est très bienveillante et la bonne humeur qu'elle donne aux visios rend le moment très sympathique ; il n'y a pas de prise de tête, l'ambiance est détendue...de ce fait on apprend sans complexe. Ainsi je ne saurais trop vous recommander de vous lancer dans l'aventure si vous en avez l' envie!!lLa

Fantastic teacher

Clay Scott (USA)

"Laura is a fantastic teacher. I recommend her very highly."

Highly recommended

Shaun (UK)

I have spent two years learning Spanish with Laura, she is a fantastic teacher I would highly recommend her to anyone. She has all the qualities that you would want in a teacher!

Learning with Laura is an absolute pleasure

Ellen Liburt (USA)

I began taking online lessons with Laura in 2016 and can't recommend her highly enough. It's not just that Laura speaks impeccable Spanish, Catalan, French, and English... or that she's great at explaining grammar, idioms, and usage in general... or even that she patiently goes above and beyond in every way as a teacher. What sets Laura above the rest is an incredibly nuanced, elegant sense of language that makes her a sensitive, accurate, and downright poetic translator. From A to Z, Laura makes learning an absolute pleasure. So if you'd like to speak another language fluently and beautifully—and have a lot of fun doing it—take this class, or any other course you can with Laura!!

Je recommende à 100% !!

Solène (France)

J'ai eu la chance d'avoir Laura comme professeur durant mes études. C'est une professeur très à l'écoute, qui prend son temps pour apporter des explications à ses élèves et qui propose de nombreuses activités en rapport avec la langue, ce qui rend l'apprentissage de celle-ci plus agréable. Je recommande à 100% !! 😊✔

Pédagogie exceptionnelle

Pierre (France)

J’ai eu la chance d’avoir Laura comme professeure de catalan tout au long de mes trois années de licence, et alors que je ne connaissais absolument pas la langue, elle nous l’a apprise avec une facilité déconcertante, en nous faisant comprendre toutes les petites choses de cette langue dans le même temps qu’elle nous ouvrait les portes d’une autre culture, et tout ça sans que ça ait jamais l’air compliqué! Le catalan est la langue que j’ai choisie d’apprendre, mais sa maitrise du français est parfaite et ses cours d’espagnol doivent être tout aussi excellents... Tout cela avec une personne d’une sympathie débordante et d’une pédagogie exceptionnelle, mêlant l’utile à l’agréable, avec laquelle on a autant de plaisir à apprendre qu’à danser en soirée! Aucun doute à avoir donc quant à la qualité des cours qu’elle proposera avec cette nouvelle plateforme!

Je recommende les cours de Laura

Emmanuelle (France)

J'ai passé plus de 4 années en tant qu'élève de Laura, je vous recommande ses cours car c'est un professeur super investi, patiente et pédagogue. Bon cours en sa compagnie 😊

FAQ

  • How does the course work?

    Every week there will be a new module. You will have the time to watch the videos, do the exercises, ask any questions you may have, practice in the private Facebook group, etc. and at the end of the week there will be a live interactive course (on Zoom) about the topics covered in the module.

  • When do the lessons take place?

    As we work with small groups, we will decide the date and the time of our Zoom lessons together with a Doodle at the beginning of the course. We will find a solution for everyone! If, for instance, we decide to do the lessons on Thursday evening, the new module will be unblocked by Friday morning.

  • Will there be more advanced courses later on?

    Yes! We already have two B1 (intermediate courses) and there will be more to come.
