  •  Frequently Asked Questions
    How are the Home Lessons?

    Every Carlos’s class at your home last a minimum of 90 mins, providing all the elements you need: materials, texts, graphics, audios, videos, games, recreating the ambiance of a classroom but in your own home (or office).

    Who are the lessons suitable for?

    Carlos carefully customizes the lessons to your needs, language level, and interests. This means, for example, that if you are a beginner, you are learning for work and you are interested in sports, he will adapt your lessons taking these factors into account. According to this, he is able to teach students of all ages, whether they are learning for work, school or leisure. Whilst customization is key, all lessons follow principles designed for effective language learning. You can learn more about how Carlos could teach you here.

    To what locations can Carlos come to teach his classes?

    Carlos resides in Altea (Alicante, Spain), so his range is limited to that town and its surroundings: Albir, Alfaz del Pí, La Nucía; and also Benidorm, Calpe, Villajoyosa, and Polop.

    More distant locations are possible, but checking availability and negotiating a different price is required.

    In which language are the lessons taught?

    Carlos teaches Spanish in Spanish, regardless the student mother language. That can sound quite difficult in the beginning but it’s what really makes results in the end. It’s all about to make your ear in Spanish and to think in Spanish, and Carlos didactical skills will make you understand the Spanish language in Spanish.

    Carlos speaks fluent English, so you could communicate in this language in case you got any doubt. Also, speaks French and German, some Italian and Portuguese; and it’s quite familiar with Russian, Dutch and Norwegian, so he especially understands difficulties of the students coming from that countries.

    What do I need to have in order to take home lessons?

    As lessons take place at your place, you need a comfortable and quiet area of your home, accommodation or workplace, where the lesson cannot be disturbed or interrupted. Dining rooms of desks where you can work, write, as well as listen or speak, are the best option. Having lessons outdoors (garden, terraces) sounds very nice and sometimes can be enjoyable, but it’s easier to be distracted there. Carlos doesn’t smoke and love animals so it’s not a problem for him if you have pets.

    How are Group Lessons?

    Very amusing. You can gather with your family, friends or coworkers to share a lesson. As long you all can watch and participate comfortably in the same room and conditions of a 1-to-1 lesson, group lessons are OK and they can be lots of fun also.  They are also quite different, as Carlos remains in a secondary role making you all speak with each other. Only you all need to have the same level in Spanish.

    It’s possible to arrange lessons for more than 90 mins. day?

    Yes, depending on availability, you can arrange a program of classes that extend in longer sessions than 90 mins. Contact Carlos to explore the possibilities.

    BOOKING, PAYMENTS, CHANGES & REFUNDS
    How do I book lessons with Carlos? 

    Very easy, just contact Carlos and arrange the first meeting, your free online lesson, and book after that a program of lessons according to your needs, possibilities, and availability.

    The different prices vary upon the number of lessons purchased. The bigger the pack, the lower the price.

    Can I cancel or change the time for a booked lesson? 

    Of course, but in any case, you need to notify with 48 in advance as a minimum for your refund or change. The canceled in advance lesson can be adjourned for another day (according to availability)

    What happens if I skip a booked lesson?

    If you book a lesson but don’t turn up to it, Carlos will lose time when they could have been teaching. So, unfortunately, he cannot reschedule a missed lesson. If you think you may not be able to attend a lesson, you can reschedule up to 48 hours before your lesson by contacting Carlos in the usual way.

    What happens when Carlos misses a lesson?

    Carlos is human, as you are, and sometimes illness or some issues can happen. In this case, after notifying the cancellation asap, your lesson will be adjourned to another day.

    What happens if Carlos arrives late?

    Carlos uses to be quite punctual, but road and issues can happen so maybe one day he could be some minutes delayed. In the case of a minor delay -less than 15 mins- it will recover that time after the class. In the case of a major delay -more than 15 mins.- a discount from next pack will be applicable to compensation for your understanding.

    What’s the payment method

    Usually cash, but Paypal is also accepted.

    Which currency is the payment?

    Payment is in euros.

    Why lessons are cheaper when bought in bigger packs? 

    Because it’s important to motivate and reward the commitment. Learning a new language it’s not automatic: it takes time and patience, and Carlos rewards and promotes that. The more regular you are the more productive your learning will be. So it’s cheaper when you book it for longer in bigger packs but he discourages procrastination no refunding if a cancellation comes with less than 48 hours in advance. In the other hand, the more intense or longer you book, the better opportunity you are giving to yourself to learn. Learning a language is a slow process so better look it in a long perspective.

    If you can’t find an answer to your question, or you need to clarify any point please don’t hesitate to ask.
