The courses are designed by experts in the creation of online material. The aim is to motivate, guide and equip you to achieve your learning goals and communicate effectively.
In the courses, you focus on language in context and practise all aspects of the language in a meaningful way.
The courses are carefully structured to help you achieve your learning goals and successfully complete real-life tasks. You take an active role in your learning and become a more autonomous learner.
Units of the courses are based on topics. This means you learn language associated with each topic and have the opportunity to use what you learn in a meaningful and natural way.
In the courses you find and understand a wide variety of written and spoken texts and focus on features like style and discourse, rather than just focusing on sentences in isolation.
In the courses you discover how the language works and put your understanding into practice.
In the courses there is equal focus on vocabulary, grammar, functional language, pronunciation, reading, writing, listening and speaking, and you can use the language in a creative, personalised way. You don't just learn standard answers to standard questions.
In the courses, feedback guides you to understanding. Exercises help you learn, rather than just testing what you learn. You focus on meaning first and then on form. As you progress you are challenged more, using a wide variety of engaging exercise types.

I have just finished my first online Spanish course, Elementary level. I would like to say a big thank you to my tutor and the whole Net Languages team who have been wonderful throughout the course. Before I started the course I thought learning a language online would be a lonely experience but I couldn’t have been more wrong. There was always somebody to help me when I had a problem. I thoroughly recommend Net Languages online Spanish courses.
The Spanish course has been great. I travel a lot around South America. It means I can study from Bogotá, from Santiago or from home with my family, and at my own pace!

The Spanish course has really impressed me. I have done other online Spanish courses and this is by far the best.

Units are well structured, interesting and relevant. Feedback on written tutorials is very clear. Oral tutorials provide support and just the right amount of challenge. They are well worth the extra cost. Being a qualified teacher myself with more than twenty years' experience I am hard to please but I recommend this course without reservation.

I thoroughly enjoyed my online Spanish course. I really liked the structure of the course and the fact that it systematically covered all the important areas: reading; listening; vocabulary; grammar; writing and, of course, speaking. Thank you so much to my wonderfully patient tutor who made all the difference. I look forward to starting the next level soon.
