Did You Know?

With LanguageBird® , you video chat with one of our expert teachers online, talking face-to-face and working together as if you are side by side. After the first lesson most people say, “Wow, I didn’t know this was possible over the Internet. It WAS like sitting next to each other!”


LanguageBird® has a lot to offer!

Convenience Lessons can be done from the comfort of your home. No wasted time commuting, parking and waiting! You plan your class schedule with your private instructor at times that are good for you. Typed Notes While you learn, your teacher will type your notes live, for you to see. After the lesson, you have beautiful and useful notes ready to print and be studied. Customization Your private instructor will coach your through our high school curriculum at a pace that is right for you. Interactivity The only way to really learn a language is to speak in a live, unpredictable environment. Self-study programs and textbooks can be a great start, but real conversations and one-on-one attention is what will enable you to actually use and learn the language. Fun! Vibrant LanguageBird® teachers, noticeable improvement and personal language success make up the recipe for an enjoyable language learning experience.

How it works

This is easy! What you need:

A computer or tablet, an internet connection, and a headset are all you need. You may not even need a headset – many computers these days have microphones built in. If you’re not the best with technology, we’ll show you how to set everything up – it takes fewer than 5 minutes.
One full year of high school Spanish requires a total of 24 instructional hours. In-between lessons students have 1-3 hours of work to complete on their own before the next class meeting. A textbook is used and assignments are given to you by your instructor.
Our teachers live in their home countries in Latin America so you’ll get to learn about real Latin American culture and develop an authentic accent. Additionally, to make the learning process that much easier, our teachers are bilingual.

Once your course is complete, LanguageBird® will send your certificate of completion to your high school or to the college/university of your choice.

Realidades may be borrowed from a library, purchased online (new or used) or even borrowed from the student’s high school (the text is standard in many high schools). LanguageBird® can also get you access to the digital text.

Spanish for credit 

Course Objectives The LanguageBird® Spanish program is designed to help students develop foundational communicative skills in Spanish and prepare them for further Spanish studies. The programs equips students to function in a Spanish-speaking culture, to use the language in meaningful contexts for personal enjoyment and enrichment, and to appreciate the role of Hispanic cultures in a global context through regular interaction with a native speaker. Written assignments are submitted directly to the teacher. The student will also be assigned an ongoing project researching a Spanish-speaking country’s culture, politics and geography or create a project with their instructor based on student interests.
