SPANISH CONVERSATION CLUB with Victoria
SUITABLE FOR HIGHER INTERMEDIATE & ADVANCED STUDENTS
MAKING SPANISH PART OF YOUR LIFESTYLE
Spanish Conversation Club is perfect to support your Spanish language use. Regular use of the language in real situations leads to fluency, so ideally you will join us every Sunday to boost your confidence in speaking fluent Spanish. But you’re free to sign up for fewer classes per month.
SPANISH CONVERSATION CLUB is aimed specifically at Levels B2 and above. However it is also the right place for some B1 students who are especially motivated and eager to improve. Please contact me if you are not sure if it is right for you.
Our discussions will be wide and varied covering aspects of Hispanic culture and news, films, and tandems with Hispanic people.
In SPANISH CLUB you will access to over 100 video learning challenges, to keep you focused and practising Spanish in a real-world way. Always, an invitation to practice. All year round.
Online group discussions are up to four times a month, 11 months per year (no classes in August).
Groups sessions are on Sundays at 19:30-20:30 GMT/BST.
Just £10 per class
Contact me to attend your first Spanish Conversation Class FREE!
Sign up here through Paypal for 4 classes per month = £40.
Please contact me if you wish to attend fewer classes per month to arrange payment.
SPANISH CLUB reviews
Here are some of the nice things students have said about Spanish Club.
“When I started my Spanish studies, my ambition was to speak in conversation. Spanish with Victoria is my opportunity to do it (despite my mistakes!). See you next Sunday!”
“I loved learning a bit about Chile and Peru… I’m looking forward to hearing presentations from other students next month.”
“It is quite difficult to find language classes beyond beginners so the services Victoria provides are perfect for anyone wanting to move on in their Spanish language journey. Highly recommended.”
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Why will this work for me? There’s lots of methods out there!Sp w1th Victoria2020-10-24T16:59:17+01:00
My methodology is based on engaging, real life topics which encourage students to speak and express themselves.
Kindness, care, acceptance and respect are essential, as the student’s comfortability will allow them to feel safe and relaxed to speak.
Communicative approach is the main aim, as I understand a language as a means of communication, connection, link with another culture, and not as a perfect tool to be used. Obviously, perfection will be happening as we practise and practise regularly and in a determined and enthusiastic way.
My sources for discussions are varied and so the pair work and group activities. Thus we avoid boredom, apathy and monotony. Five clubs in five weeks.
The role of the student is always active. Students get the instructions clearly in time before spending an hour talking, discussing and commenting topics.
Students have access to feedback constantly.
Sense of humour is crucial to learn. Our brain relaxes, opens up and absorbs naturally the language. Moreover, it brings an atmosphere of trust and peacefulness.
Why should I choose Spanish with Victoria?Sp w1th Victoria2021-04-10T18:02:27+01:00
We are a small and unique school where you can be sure to get individual attention. There are many, much bigger, and probably cheaper schools than ours, but I think you’ll find it hard to find better value or a more personable and friendly club. There’s only one teacher here and that’s me!
I offer a free 15 minute video intro session for everyone joining SPANISH CLUB at Level 2 and above, so nobody is anonymous to me. I will welcome you individually and answer your questions. You can tell me your learning priorities and I can signpost you to relevant existing material in the Club, and guide your individual learning.
When you take the ¡YA HABLO ESPAÑOL! course, in addition to our weekly Zoom lesson, you’ll have chance to ask questions through a Whatsapp group, and through a weekly video Q/A session so I can understand your specific needs and expectations, both in terms of the language and in terms of motivation. It takes motivation and commitment to complete the course and I want to be able to help you with that.
Why do I pay for 12 months when there are no groups in August?Sp w1th Victoria2020-11-02T17:29:41+00:00
Although you pay each calendar month, you are actually paying for blocks of four weeks. There are 13 blocks of 4 weeks in a year, and you are paying for 12 of them. So, four weeks in August are a holiday for us all; hopefully a Spanish-speaking one!
Please let me know your concerns as soon as possible. We have clear, firm rules in Spanish with Victoria and those people who do not follow them will need to leave the community. Respect and none judgement are essential for all people to feel part of the group. Thank you!
You’re very welcome to join us! I will contact you straight away to let you know how it all works and add you to the Facebook Group, and when the next group session is that you have signed up for, and what we will be discussing.
What happens if one day I did not have time to prepare for the discussion?Sp w1th Victoria2020-10-22T10:29:22+01:00
Whenever it is convenient to you. You can cancel at any time. Please cancel your monthly Paypal subscription. And no need for explanation or justification, but we always welcome feedback. We like people coming freely and enthusiastically and leaving in the same way.
Can I change from one level to another depending on the time availability I have for that month?Sp w1th Victoria2020-10-22T10:38:09+01:00
If you know in advance that you will not be able to attend all the groups you have signed up for, you will be able to cancel through Paypal and re-subscribe at a different level before the beginning of your month. It won’t be possible to change after the beginning of the month.
