What’s a VR Lesson Like?
Nothing can quite prepare you for the real experience of needing to speak Spanish for the first time. Panic and anxiety set in immediately and make you splutter out an error-filled string of words. Even if you get it right and are understood, the response will almost certainly differ from the set phrases you’ve been learning and preparing for.
Dynamic Spanish simulates that experience in a surprisingly realistic way, with real people asking you real questions and waiting for your reply! First you’ll prepare by learning and practising your speaking and listening skills in a fully immersive classroom.
After you've practised in the classroom, you'll step out onto the streets of Valencia to engage in role-play based conversations. You’ll be nervous and make mistakes, but that’s ok because as real as it seems at the time, these people aren’t actually there – that’s the joy of Dynamic Spanish!
Interacting in Spanish in these immersive video encounters will give you the confidence to have conversations in real life. You will learn to stay relaxed and calm, able to speak Spanish with ease, building on your speaking abilities.
Travel Around Spain
With Dynamic Spanish, learning a language and discovering its culture go hand in hand. The Starter Pack contains three trips around Valencia so you can get a taste of what this amazing city has to offer.
If you're currently stuck in isolation, going on a virtual trip to Spain might be just the break you need! These relaxing 360 journeys are mini-documentaries, looking at the history and culture of the places you'll visit when speaking with your virtual amigos. You'll practise Spanish phrases while experiencing the fascinating sights of Spain.
How Long is the Course?
The course length depends on how much time you have for learning Spanish each week. You can go at your own pace but most students take 8 weeks to complete the course, so this is how the Starter Pack is structured.
You can try out the first week of the Starter Pack for free, by signing up for the 7 Day Trial.
Whether you sign up for the 7 Day Trial or buy the Starter Pack now, you'll have access to the lessons and materials for at least 12 months, so don't worry if your circumstances change.
Don't Just Take Our Word For It!
