FREE Pronunciation Diagnostic Session
Why don't we have a coffee together?
Let’s get to know each other a little. I’d like to understand your situation, goals and needs and find out the best way to help you with improving your pronunciation.
You’ll be able to ask anything and see if there is a good feeling between the 2 of us. It’s important that you like your teacher.
If I’m not the right person to help, I’ll tell you and I’ll suggest another colleague or resources.
How it works?
If I think I can help you, I'll give you an appointment within 2-3 days.
20 minutes on Skype to talk about your goals, the pronunciation difficulties you face and find out the best way to help you.
I'll customise your course to fit your needs (study time, content, speed...) and tastes.
Please, take into account
Apply for the Session only if you’re truly interested and ready to invest in catapulting your Spanish speaking skills. I only hold 1 FREE Diagnostic Session per person and a maximum of 8 sessions per month.
Therefore, before having an appointment, I make a selection: I choose the learners who can get more out of my courses and with whom I think I can give the most of myself.
Please, understand that filling the form doesn’t guarantee having a FREE Diagnostic Session.
This session isn't for you if...
You need at least an A2 level because we’ll speak in Spanish 99.9% of the time.
I’m sorry but I can’t help you. My courses are very specific: they’re geared towards the most common difficulties English native speakers face and this is the field in which I can do my best. Teaching strategies change quite a bit depending on the student’s mother tongue.
I give help, guidance and advice but we should climb the mountain together.
Please, take into account that this isn’t a free lesson and someone, who’s truly interested and ready to start a Spanish pronunciation course, may have to wait longer when there are lots of applications.
If you aren’t convinced, you and I will waste our time.
Practising is vital for moving forward.
This session is only for people who are really committed, willing to improve themselves and willing to invest and devote time to achieve their goals.

Do people from Latin America understand Spanish from Spain?
Of course! In fact, the accent from Spain is quite well perceived by most of Latins plus, it will be easier for you to write Spanish correctly if you learn to speak Spanish from Spain. For example, in Latin America, they pronounce the words «cocer» (to boil) and «coser» (to sew) or «cazar» (to hunt) and «casar» (to marry) exactly the same: /koSer/ and /kaSar/. If you pronounce them differently you will know how to write them properly.
What happens if I can't attend THE SESSION?
There’s only 1 FREE Diagnostic Session per person so if you don’t show up or provide notice at least 2 hours in advance, you’ll miss this opportunity.
wHO'S THIS SESSION FOR?
This is for serious and committed people who are interested in acquiring any of the Pronunciation Lessons.
Will I have homework (during the course)?
Yes -Unless you take classes every day. Why? It is essential that you practise between classes -repetition is vital to develop awareness and to assimilate difficult sounds. It’s better to practice 15 minutes a day than 5 hours once a week. Pronunciation is like any other skill: I’ll teach you how it’s done but you need to practise until it’s effortless.
Can I access the SESSION on my smartphone?
Yes, you can access on mobile devices, tablets and computers. In any case, I recommend using headphones and wifi connection to ensure optimum speed.
How often should I study?
Most learners take 1 or 2 lessons each week; the more you study the faster you’ll improve. However, One-to-One Lessons are the most flexible training so your course will be adapted to your needs.
