WHEN FACE-TO-FACE WITH A REAL SPANISH SPEAKER, DO YOU FREEZE?
If you’ve learned any Spanish before, you probably focused on learning the “stuff” of the language - grammar, vocab, perhaps pronunciation.
Which makes sense. That’s obviously the first step.
But what good is all of that intellectual knowledge if you can’t effortlessly use it in real conversations with Spanish speakers?
Sure, you know the stuff. But if every time you go to form a new sentence, you are searching your brain for the right sentence structure, the right conjugation, that word you can never remember...
...then you have a problem.
Your Goal is to Have Natural Conversations
With Real People... Right?
Then you not only need to learn the grammar and vocab, but become confident using it.
And the only way to become confident having conversations in Spanish is to have lots of conversations in Spanish.
So if you’ve done the entire Duolingo curriculum...
Listened to the Pimsleur tapes...
Taken academic classes...
Memorized hundreds of words of vocabulary...
...but still can’t actually speak Spanish, that’s NORMAL.
It’s not that you aren’t good at languages. It’s that you’ve been skipping half of the entire process - speaking!
There Are TWO PARTS to Becoming
Conversationally Fluent in Spanish
Part one is learning the “stuff” of the language (the vocab, the grammar, the pronunciation, etc).
Part two is becoming confident using that stuff by having lots of conversations.
- Apps like Memrise, Duolingo, and Rosetta Stone
- Tapes like Pimsleur and Michel Thomas
- Formal classes like given in high school, college, and language schools
- BaseLang, where the curriculum has been hacked to reduce how much you have to learn
- Language exchanges, which are are ineffective and often leave beginners more confused
- Hourly tutoring, which costs upwards of $15 an hour online and $50 in person
- BaseLang, where you pay $599 a month and get as much one-on-one conversation time as you want
No Matter How Much Time You Spend on Part One,
If You Don’t Have Lots of Conversations,
You’ll Never Become Conversationally Fluent.
That’s where we come in.
At the BaseLang Medellin School, you get unlimited in-person, one-on-one Spanish tutoring with professional teachers.
We focus on getting you from zero to conversationally fluent, so you can:
- travel or live in Spain or Latin America without living in Google Translate
- join the Spanish conversations your latino coworkers, friends, or family members are having
- date Spanish-speakers without embarrassing yourself
- stop getting passed over for jobs or promotions for less-qualified people who are bilingual
In addition to classes in-person, you’ll also have access to all of our teachers online, so you can continue to take classes even outside of normal business hours.
There are two plans available, depending on the kind of experience you'd like to have.
- Real World Lite includes up to 2 hours a day of classes in-person and unlimited classes online, for $599/mo or $199/wk.
- Real World includes unlimited classes in-person and unlimited classes online, for $1199/mo or $399/wk.

“I love being able to schedule tutoring sessions without the guilt of 'there goes another $$$'. I just pay my monthly fee and learn as it works for my schedule. Brilliant.
Secondly, thank you for hiring such extraordinary tutors. They are smart, fun, and so encouraging. I was desperately looking for these qualities in a tutor for several months, and I’m so grateful to have found those qualities in your tutors.
Thirdly, you have great lessons! I’ll admit this was the part I was most apprehensive about. I prefer learning Spanish grammatically, but I need to be forced to actually speak it... I didn’t really think your lessons would address my questions—but they do! Your tutors give me more than the typical 'That’s just how it is said in Spanish', which is so exciting. I love learning about the nuts and bolts of the language, and I’m so thankful that Baselang provides that while also pushing me to speak Spanish. Thank you."

“I thought I should send a message through to say thank you. I've had a pretty horrible time with languages, I studied Spanish for 5 years at school, French for 3, got dropped from a Farsi class because I couldn't keep up, lived in Sweden for two years and failed to pick up more than a few words. Confidence in my ability to learn was effectively null. So last December I decided I'd learn Spanish on the basis it was the one I surely had the greatest chance with. Mostly just to prove to myself that I am actually capable of learning a language at all.
Last week I met an Argentinian. We spoke for two hours straight. In flowing Spanish.
That is completely down to BaseLang and Sergio, one of the best teachers I've ever had in my 20 years of education. My progress was unbelievable and I cannot even begin to describe how grateful I am to him and to your team. I've been recommending you in person, on reddit, to everyone from the Add1Challenge, pretty much anywhere I can, but thought I should tell you directly.”
