Why Learn Spanish With Lauren?

"As a native English speaker myself, I know where you are coming from when trying to learn Spanish.

I understand the challenges and pain points that English speakers face. I have been there!

When I moved to Spain it dawned on me: the Spanish I had learned in a traditional classroom setting was not really practical or had prepared me for real life interactions.

When I was exposed to authentic experiences and the real day-to-day Spanish, I finally understood there was a better way to learn.

I will uncover the techniques, tips and tricks I have mastered teaching Spanish for nearly 15 years, so you can learn practical and useful Spanish online at your own pace in an intuitive and simple way."

This online Spanish course is different. Lessons have lots of examples and simple explanations. Audios and videos with colorful pictures make the course entertaining. I have taken lots of Spanish courses over the years. They can get into nitty gritty details that can be confusing and have little practical use in day-to-day Spanish. This is not your typical Spanish course. Worth it!

This online course was really interesting to me. I studied Spanish in the US and I did not really know much about Castilian Spanish beyond the fact that it was spoken in Spain. I had no idea Spanish from Spain could be so different! The course was very informative, well structured and with practical examples. Satisfied.

I thoroughly enjoyed The Castilian Factor course. I was especially interested in the historical background, and learned about the diverse cultures of each Spanish region. I had no idea there were so many different dialects! I discovered each region contributes to the Castilian dialect. There are fun quizzes, and helpful resources offered along the way throughout the course. Being a beginner Spanish learner, I acquired a great deal of useful and practical information I can use on my travels to Spain. I appreciated the printable worksheets, and would like to see more added along the way. I would highly recommend this course! Catherine
