I have been taking Spanish lessons through Preply. I love my tutor. She is very patient and talks slowly. It is $3 for the first hour then Preply forces you to buy either 5, 10, 15, or 20 hour package. You can also use those hours on other tutors if you want.
Customer service is top notch! I have contacted them a few times because I had trouble booking. It was my fault as I had no idea what I was doing.
You can talk to your teacher through Skype which I don’t like but it does the job. Since a lot of the tutors are in other countries with unreliable internet, you may just have to do audio and cut the video portion off. After I did that the tutoring lesson went smoothly. My tutor lives in Venezuela.
5 hour package costs $15
10 hour package costs $29.40
15 hour package costs $43.70
20 hour package costs $57.00
I plan on doing a lesson every day of the week. So that is less than $100/month for Spanish lessons. In comparison, I paid about $255 and right now 20 hours of private lessons are $450 with the same school.
I will try to do two hours per day with two different tutors. The other tutor will be male to get two different voices going and accents. I am so ready!
A few other places to learn a language:
Italki – never tried this
Rype – I tried this but wasn’t enough teachers to choose from for me. The teacher I had spoke too fast for me.
I will still try to post at least once a week but I have so many things going on right now which include graduate school. I go for daily walks with my dog around my neighborhood if I don’t do anything else special. I will go out once per week to an event in Mexico to give you more information about Mexico.
I will be in Cancun for a week so stay tuned for that!
