Frequently asked questions
1
What is a Group Live Session?
A Group Session is real-time class with up to 5 students led by a certified native Spanish-speaking teacher.
The virtual classroom is a very easy-to-use interface in which you will be able to listen and speak with your teacher and other students.
The only thing you need is a headset (webcam not necessary) and a positive attitude =).
The teacher will lead the class; share pictures; introduce real life situations; suggest activities in order to help students gain confidence. Group Sessions are fun! And they are the best way to reach fluency.
Each Group Session is typically 45 minutes and they start every hour. After the class the teacher will send a feedback report via email to each student with their performance in the class.

Do I have to own a webcam to join a live session?
Nope! Only a working microphone to communicate with the teacher is required. A headset is also highly recommended.
