You just don’t know how to make it happen.
- Perhaps your life is really busy and you've been putting it off.
- Perhaps you’ve even tried learning it before, but found the progress too slow and the task ahead overwhelming.
- Perhaps the idea of classroom and textbook learning doesn’t motivate or inspire you.
- Perhaps you might have even tried the 10 min per day app, but just can’t see yourself having real conversations with Spanish people purely following that route.
- Perhaps you believe you are too old to learn a language.
You’ve tried saying a few stuttered words, but you feel so self-conscious and frustrated because you really want to speak to these people and not just rely on them speaking English to you…
You’re in the right place.
BECAUSE YOU NEED A PLAN AND A PATH THAT SAVES YOU YEARS OF COMMON AND OFTEN INVISIBLE AND UNSPOKEN HURDLES.
Some people spend years or even decades trying to learn a language, frequently giving up frustrated after investing so much of their time...

ALL OF THIS IS 100% POSSIBLE FOR YOU
We did it, our learners are doing it, and you can do it too.
The fact that I just couldn’t grasp languages at school, even though I did pretty well in other subjects made me believe I just didn’t have ‘the right type of brain’ to easily learn a language. I decided at 40 to push myself to learn something new and as we go to Spain often. Straight away Cristina made me feel comfortable and also helped me see that it was the way languages are taught in school that just didn’t work for me! It’s not too late to learn a language!
I love learning Spanish with Cristina! Working with her has helped me tremendously to build confidence and improve my Spanish-speaking skills. Cristina quickly assessed my learning style and interests, which kept my motivation strong. Her approach to teaching is very personalized; she always asks for input for how I best process new information. You can count on Cristina to be a supportive and intuitive teacher.
From the beginning, I felt very well taken care of by Cristina. She had a high level of awareness of me and the challenges a student faces when learning something new. She was always observing and checking with me to see that the pace was right. I would recommend this programme to anyone who is new to Spanish, and especially to people who think they are 'no good' at learning languages.
Learning Spanish is not about boring lessons, random and complicated study of the language…
Before finding us, many of our students had already tried the 10 minute-a-day apps and other free resources or even traditional learning based courses, eventually coming to the realisation that they were blocked and not speaking as they were hoping. They were feeling frustrated and demoralised.
However, when you connect with your motivation, your interests and focus on the areas of the language that you are going to use from day 1, learning becomes intentional, enjoyable and purely focused on what matters.
Connect gives you the tools that you need to kick-start and advance your Spanish in a natural way. It gives you proven strategies to follow, you will be speaking straight away and you can walk away with a solid foundation of the language.
You can thrive in Spanish…

"The weekly videos and materials are really good. Not too large to feel swamped but also enough to take in and feel you can learn in small chunks. The programme has really helped me take small steps and understand how I learn. I wish Cristina and Pete lived with us for a year! I definitely recommend Connect" - D.S
We’ve helped hundreds of people who were stuck find clarity on how to approach learning Spanish and what to focus on to really make it work. And we can't wait to help you too!
The course has been very very helpful. It has given me more confidence in believing I can learn Spanish and be successful when we move there!
Thanks Cristina and Pete, I want to live in Spain and this course has already got me a lot more motivated!
What stands out for me is that this course is not about "dry Spanish" you can find in other courses or on the internet. The tips and cultural explanations on how things work in Spain are priceless. I didn't realise how much I didn't know!
What makes Connect different?
There are so many online courses for learning Spanish right now. Connect is different. Here’s why:
1. CONNECT GETS YOU TO SPEAK SPANISH FROM DAY 1
Unfortunately, many teachers and courses don't focus on speaking from day 1. People spend years and years trying to reach the fluency that they want, but focusing on reading, writing, learning more grammar and vocabulary eventually reaching a point that they know that it's not working. Because if you want to speak, there's no way around it... You have to speak! That's why Connect doesn't focus on the study of the language following a textbook style - we show how to speed the process so you're not forever learning hoping to be fluent one day - Instead, you'll be speaking with the locals and enjoying Spain!
2. CONNECT MAXIMISES YOUR BRAIN’S POTENTIAL
Cristina trained as a Neurolanguage Coach®, a methodology which combines principles from neuroscience and coaching for more efficient learning. We know from neuroscience that the more real, personal and relevant something is, the faster we learn it. It makes sense, right? The brain is a powerful, energy-saving machine which will not waste time and energy memorising stuff that doesn’t feel like it’s going to serve any purpose. Instead, it really focuses on paying attention and remembering that which is real (that’s why you would remember the words that your future father in law said to you when you were trying to help him with the “jamón carving” much more easily than the language used in a textbook dialogue… Ha!)
You’re not alone in this process. We’re with you every step of the way. This programme not only gives you the content you need, but also employs coaching techniques to fuel your success. And because you get priority email support, we've got you covered :-)
4. YOU GET FULL ACCESS STRAIGHT AWAY
And can work at your own pace! Every module and topic has been carefully crafted so you get everything that you need, without being overwhelming and allowing you enough time to process and work through the information with a good level of momentum. It also provides structure and guarantees that you are not missing key content in your foundation-building phase.
5. WE HAVE BOTH DONE THE JOURNEY OURSELVES
Several times! We have both learned different languages; in the traditional way with far less efficient results and over a long period of time... And we have also learned following a more relevant, natural and meaningful approach with radically different outcomes. We bring you here what we and our learners have tried and tested and know works best.
6. CONNECT SHOWS YOU HOW TO BUILD THE LANGUAGE IN A SIMPLE WAY
We give you the language that you will need, reduced to the essentials for quick and easy conversations to begin with and chunked down so your brain processes it easily, AND we help you work on your mindset, your motivation and the strategies that you need to become a resourceful and self-driven learner.
7. WE HAVE PUT OUR HEARTS INTO IT
We are so passionate about the opportunities and experiences that speaking Spanish can give you that we have created this programme so you can have access to them too!
