About Hablah

What is Hablah?

Hablah is an online school that offers lessons of Spanish in group. We give you the ability to book individual lessons as you need them, one hour at a time: they’re not binding courses that require weeks of commitment!

But if long courses are what you’re looking for, we do even offer a couple of them—only two!

Lessons on Hablah are held in open, small groups of students.

Why are our groups “open”?

Here are three reasons:

Why do we call our groups “small”?

Here are two reasons:

Benefits of Group Learning

What advantages can learning in group have over 1-on-1 lessons?

Extra motivation, more engagement

Being in a group adds an extra component of motivation to your studies. You are not the only one on the journey. You see how others make progress—and mistakes!—with you. Everyone is going in the same direction, and that’s a stimulus to engage in learning. We really are social beings!

More varied reflection time

Group learning gives you more varied chances of reflection—even when you are silent. Most of us probably learnt our first language in a group, whether at school or at home: and we were not speaking all the time! So even when it’s someone else’s turn to answer a question, you too will be thinking!

More affordable

With group lessons, individual students benefit from lower rates. In fact, the lesson is still the same usual price—except that it’s split among all the people who attend. Plus, at Hablah, the actual number of attendees also has an effect on the final price: you pay less if there are more people in class!

Benefits of Group Learning

I believe helping people shoud account for a good deal of what we do in this world. I find teaching Spanish is a good way to do just that.

I’ll leave my LinkedIn profile here, but I’d like you to meet the human behind this page too. Please watch my introduction video! My parents and family tend to say good things about me—but, of course, they’re biased, and I’ve had a long time to get them to think that way! 🙂

“Un poco más sobre mí”

Here are a few more facts about me. Some are work-related; others are just about my life when not working.

I helped my youngest brother learn to read—I was the second oldest brother, so who else would do that!? When I grew up I worked with kids as a primary school teacher. I also had some experience with teenagers. Then teaching adults followed—and since 2015 I have been teaching them Spanish online.

I enjoy working long-term with my online students. A few chose me to learn Spanish for some 100 hours. But my best experience came with one of my current students: we’ve been working together for more than 300 hours—now close to three years, and counting—from A1 to B2! I can’t find the words to say “gracias”!

Being able to teach my mother tongue is truly wonderful to me. The more I get to know the language, the more I enjoy it. I like working with learners of all levels, and I try hard to make Spanish clear and easy for them. And yes: seeing students finally understand difficult contents, that’s fantastic!

My parents are from the south of Spain, but they met in Barcelona, where I was born. I don’t consider myself fully bilingual (Spanish was no doubt the main language at home), but my father spoke Catalan with me, so I couldn’t help but learn it! I also studied other languages—English to an advanced level!

Mine include reading, swimming (I swim twice a week), just taking walks (whenever I don’t swim), writing in a personal blog (if I have the time!), or meditation. And I also play the piano once a week.

As for how I see my students, rest assured you’ll have a place in our online groups! So no matter if you’re shy (we’ll try and do the speaking for you!), or if you’d rather not use your camera (mine will always be on!). To me, you truly are a real person, in a real group—with a real “profe” (Spanish short for teacher)!
