Not all methodologies are the same
I am aware that not everyone has had positive experiences learning Spanish
Traditional schools rely on outdated methodologies that slow down students’ progress, using far too much grammar and far too little conversation.
Long and boring explanations on the blackboard, fill-in-the-blank exercises, a bit of conversation, a bit more review and then home you go.
If you’ve had such learning experiences, you already know that there is hardly any conversation involved, which makes it difficult to help learners of Spanish with what they really need… The ability to communicate fluently, confidently and self-assuredly, in a way that is natural and anxiety-free.
But don’t throw in the towel just yet, as there are other methodologies that are based on the real problems of the students. They are designed in a far more personalised and effective way and have a highly visual style, just like my “Flipped” methodology, which will help you achieve what you’ve been wanting for so long… to speak Spanish fluently.

Pasé varias semanas haciendo clases con Alberto. Él es un profesor maravilloso que siempre logra crear un ambiente muy divertido y energético en el aula. Sus clases siempre mantenían mi atención debido a la mezcla de métodos utilizados: videos, música, cuestionarios y debates, así como ejercicios de gramática y escritura más tradicionales. Como profesor siempre es tan positivo y accesible, y logró acomodarse muy bien cuando de vez en cuando teníamos niveles muy diferentes de capacidad en una clase.. Lo recomendaría como profesor a cualquiera que busque mejorar tu español, sin importar tu nivel, y que quiera hacerlo en un entorno de aprendizaje divertido, abierto y motivador.
I had the pleasure of studying Spanish with him and I was very satisfied with the incredible classes taught by the teacher. Always with great enthusiasm, attention and professionalism. My Spanish level was basic and even with only 8 weeks of class I was very happy with the results and learning I had, with Alberto’s classes I felt super comfortable and more willing to learn. I recommend with all words, and languages 🙂
Thanks Alberto for all the learning!
Estudiar con Alberto fue un verdadero placer. Sus muchos años de experiencia en enseñar español en combinación con sus profundos conocimientos didácticos y su personalidad muy amable y comprensiva son excepcionales. Su dedicación absoluta resultaba in lecciones no sólo variadas pero también divertidas. Casi en de pasado se aprende el idioma y además mucho sobre el país y sus habitantes. Puedo recomendar los cursos de Alberto sin reservas!“
Muchos saludos desde la Suiza!
I had the privilege to have Alberto as my Spanish teacher under my visit in Valencia. Alberto has a creative way of explaining the Spanish language, by focusing on building interaction amongs students and himself. His classes were easy to follow, with a good level of humour and professionalism. As a language teacher Alberto has an ability to engage and motivate his students throughout the whole class.
I had a great time learning spanish in classes with Alberto! All of the classes were very engaging, and there were always different activities and games to make learning Spanish interesting and fun. At times I was a little slower at learning than the other students, but I always felt comfortable and was encouraged to be interactive in the classes. When I needed some extra assistance, Alberto always came to assist me and gave some additional explanation. Alberto is a very patient teacher and his classes are a lot of fun. I would happily recommend him as a Spanish teacher.
I had a very good experience with Alberto as my Spanish teacher. He offers a perfect balance between grammar and speaking practice. Alberto is very skilled, friendly,patient teacher. It was always a very fun,pleasant and approachable way of teaching. Because of his travelling it was a plus knowing he can speak English so that for me, as a beginner,i felt never lost in time of expressing myself to switch it from English to Spanish. I can recommend him to everyone that wants to learn Spanish!
I had the pleasure to have Alberto as my Spanish teacher last year and highly enjoyed his classes. He always encouraged every student and created a fun and comfortable learning environment. Because of Alberto’s diversified teaching methods and his motivation to improve his students’ abilities, I witnessed a huge progress in my Spanish. I highly recommend taking his classes!
Alberto est un professeur très à l’écoute. Il prend le temps de bien expliquer les choses, il est patient et explique très bien. C’est un professeur dynamique avec des activités intéressantes pour nous faire apprendre au mieux. Lors de mes cours d’espagnol, j’ai toujours eu beaucoup de plaisir à travailler avec Alberto. Il prend en compte les difficultés de chacun et il est très appliqué dans son travail, il a du plaisir à enseigner, toujours avec le sourire et la bonne humeur.
I would strongly recommend Alberto as your Spanish teacher. According to me he is both professional, carrying and funny. When I started to take classes with Alberto I more or less didn’t know any Spanish at all, but still he made it possible to do a class in only Spanish from the start in a both great and funny way, that was impressing. I learned a lot from my classes with Alberto and today I’m hanging out with Spanish friends by just talking in Spanish.
Alberto is a great teacher! I had the opportunity to study Spanish with him for several months during my first year in Spain. As a retired person, and someone who had not studied a foreign language before, I was concerned that I would not be able to learn. But Alberto made it fun, and I learned a lot in a very short time. He is patient and encouraging, and presented just the right amount of challenges for me to keep improving. I highly recommend his courses!
While spending my time in Spain, to learn Spanish I had the honor to learn from very good teachers BUT at the end I learned the most with and from Alberto! Why? He made it always to the point, he made simple and clear examples I understood right away. The way he teaches grammar is like watching a good movie, you just soak it in and you get it sooo easy, and still, the professionalism is always high level!
