Today's side deal prepares you for traveling abroad or tricking your neighbors into thinking they've traveled abroad: for $30, you get five online Spanish lessons with a private tutor and a one-month membership to Speak Shop, a $60 value.
Speak Shop is a Portland-based company with the mission of improving intercultural understanding and respect through language. The online business matches students to experienced instructors, all of whom have gone through an intensive screening process and are native to and currently live in a Spanish-speaking country. By pairing American students to Spanish-speaking tutors from other countries, Speak Shop not only provides its students with top-notch instruction, but also gives foreign phonetic friends exciting entrepreneurial opportunities. One-on-one lessons are taught over Skype, and to sign up, students simply need to visit Speak Shop's website, select a tutor, and schedule their lessons for whatever time works best.
Use this Groupon to get started learning a new vocabulary or to practice pronunciation with a pro. Each tutor will work with you to create five personalized lesson plans, answer your questions, and give immediate feedback on grammar and accent. Speak Shop's tutors are highly trained at teaching Spanish and typically have several years of experience working for notable language schools. Your included one-month membership will grant you access to all of Speak Shop's online learning tools, including a translator, vocabulary guide, grammar texts, and chat rooms.
