Learn Spanish: FAQ

If you want to learn Spanish with me you can find here the most frecuent questions. If your question is not listed on this page you can send me a message and I will send you the answer as soon as possible!

> I am interested in your Spanish lessons, what is next?

Send me an email to spanish@notesbygala.com and tell me about you: what course you want to join, if you have studied Spanish before, why you want to learn, your availability…

After that I will send you a level test and schedule a free of charge interview (around 30min). Then we are ready to start!

How can I pay your online Spanish classes?

Classes will be paid by bank transfer (I will provide you with my bank details) before the class takes place. Face to face lessons can be paid by cash as well.

How do your online lessons work?

I use Skype when I teach online. We can also use Hangouts, Whatsapp, etc. Online lessons work just like face to face lessons: same content, resources, etc.

Do I need to buy a book?

No, I will provide any material you need.

Are your lessons 100% in Spanish?

When you have High Intermediate and Advance level we will only communicate in Spanish. For Basic and Low Intermediate level I will give explanations in English. According to me experience, attending a lesson 100% in Spanish when you don´t understand anything is very frustrating. My goal is making you love Spanish, not  hating it.

What are my classes like?

The key to be fluent in a new language is understanding, that’s why my lessons are focus on listening and speaking. I will help you to be able to communicate in Spanish in an efficient way. Studying and understanding simple rules are basic to learn a new language, so if you don´t have a good command of Spanish Grammar I encourage you to join my Grammar lessons. Don’t worry, I promise the won’t be boring!

> I need to cancel a class, how can I do it?

If you need to cancel a class, please let me know by email, phone, whatsapp… at least two hours before your appointment. If you don´t show up you will miss your lesson.

Will you recommend other resources to learn Spanish?

Absolutely. I will share and recommend videos, movies, novels… many different resources to improve your listening, grammar or vocabulary.

I don’t speak a word of Spanish, can you help me?

I love working with students from scratch, it’s great to see how fast they learn. When my students have a Basic level, I usually use English to communicate with them.

I don’t have time to learn Spanish, what can you do for me?

For people with little free time I have a great way to learn Spanish: online lessons. You won’t have to spend time commuting and you can learn  anywhere (when children sleep, when you are on a business trip, after work…) .

My schedule changes every week, can you adapt to my crazy life?

Sure. Since I offer online lessons, I can be quite flexible. You just need to tell me your availability and we will see what time works better for you.
