Frequently Asked Questions / Help
I need to learn basic Spanish to use with Spanish speaking clients. How do I begin?
You should first take our Spanish Placement Test.
If you place in the beginning level then you should start with Spanish 101.
If you place in the intermediate level in at least two areas, then you can go directly to the Conversational Spanish course.
What is the teaching philosophy of 123TeachMe?
The world we live in is integrated and cross-disciplinary (Jones & Thomas, 2006, p. 64). When one is learning a language, the brain searches for patterns and connections in order to build meaning. A language course compartmentalized into separate content areas, vocabulary, grammar, culture, etc. does NOT provide meaningful patterns and connections. However, “an integrated, balanced curriculum promotes this type of brain growth and development through an enriched environment” (Cuthrell & Yates, 2007, p. 23). The National Association of State Boards of Education agrees with this statement, proclaiming that “the balanced, integrated curriculum is based on best knowledge” of how we all learn. The innovative teaching methods developed by 123TeachMe are based upon this philosophy.
How revolutionary is your teaching method?
Our method has captured the attention of teachers everywhere. Every week, teachers contact us to make us aware of how they are using 123TeachMe in their classrooms. 123TeachMe is now used by over 100,000 Spanish students per day. Although we have never charged anything for our service, and never received any government funding, 123TeachMe has taught more people Spanish in ten years than most public universities have in fifty years.

"I usually don't take time to answer surveys, but this program is so amazing. I am currently taking Spanish classes in college, and the program that I had to pay for is horrible, narrow, limited, frustrating and boring.......... When I found this website, I realized that there was hope! I just want to say thank you soooo much...... This is an excellent resource, and it is effective too."

Can I speak Spanish without learning any grammar?
You can speak any language without learning grammar - this is proven whenever you visit a fast-food restaurant. We understand that every student has different interests and needs. We allow the student to decide if they want to learn a little grammar or a lot of grammar. Just remember, learning a little grammar will make language acquisition much faster and less painful!
How quickly will I be able to speak Spanish?
This depends on your commitment and eagerness to learn Spanish. 123Teachme gives you the tools you need to speak Spanish the first day. If you devote yourself, you'll have a much greater command of the language after only a few months of study.

How do you determine the language school ratings?
We don't. Each Spanish school is rated by the students who have attended the school. Students submit comments and evaluations of each school they have attended. Sometimes the overall ratings will NOT match-up with the most recent student ratings. This is due to the fact that the overall rating is an average of ALL the individual ratings of students over several years while space limitations only allow us to show the most recent ratings and comments from students.
We hope to hear from you and receive your evaluation of the school you attend.
