Dynamo Spanish offers audio Spanish lessons via Skype. These courses are taught by native speakers and are a good option for those who don’t want to use Skype’s video feature during their classes.
Learning Spanish via Audio Lessons
Listening and speaking are major components of learning a new language. Dynamo Spanish offers you ample opportunity to practice these skills via the audio language lessons.
The video chat lessons are more personal in that they allow you to see your instruction. But, the audio lessons aren’t less effective. Depending on your preferences, they may be a better fit! Some students prefer not to have the distraction of the video feature. Others have taken advantage of the format to squeeze in lessons at work, in the car, and so on.
How Audio Lessons Work
There are two primary components of your audio Spanish learning experience.
First, you and your instructor will engage in conversation practice. The goals are to:
- Increase your fluency and confidence in listening and speaking
- Improve your pronunciation
In addition to conversational practice, your instructor will use a variety of multimedia tools to help you learn Spanish. To that end, you will listen to:
- TV and movie clips
- …and more!
The goals of exposing you to real-world Spanish (that is, as it is spoken in various contexts and by different speakers) include:
- Understand Spanish spoken with a variety of accents
- Increase your understanding of idiomatic expressions used by Spanish speakers around the world
- Promote your knowledge of cultures where Spanish is the primary language
How Are Audio Courses Different From Traditional Classroom-Based Options?
The audio Spanish language lessons involve lots of practice speaking and listening to spoken Spanish. This is quite different from traditional Spanish courses and language learning methods. Typically, you would spend most of your time focused on learning grammar and memorizing vocabulary words. This information is helpful, but it is not quite as effective at getting you conversationally fluent.
Dynamo Spanish’s goal is to get you prepared to hear and to speak Spanish in a variety of settings in the shortest amount of time possible.
Will Audio-Only Lessons Work if I’m New to Spanish?
Our teachers are trained to assess how comfortable you are with Spanish. As such, all the material used during your one-on-one lessons will be at a level that’s appropriate for you.
Your lessons will proceed at a pace that works for you, and your instructor will adapt the speed based on your needs. We’ll start slowly, and over time, we will build up your Spanish vocabulary and increase the complexity of the material to which you’re exposed.
If you’d like a sample of what the material you’ll encounter in our audio Spanish courses is like, please see the following resources for free audio clips and other language-learning materials:
