This month Web Spanish celebrates its 10th birthday! In a way, it´s hard to believe that it has been ten years since we first began offering Spanish classes online, though when we recall all of the changes we have been through – and all of the work we have done – other days is seems like a hundred years.
Way back in the day, it was a pretty innovative idea to offer live classes over the Internet: the telephony and blackboard tools were just rolling out, and the bandwidth was barely able to handle voice and data sharing simultaneously. Then, there was the added challenge of convincing people that online classes could actually be a terrific path to learning a foreign language. After all, what could be better than communicating with a live, native-Spanish speaking teacher living in a Spanish-speaking country? Thanks to technology, students were now able to access high quality instruction with the added value of speaking with somebody “in situ” who could share aspects of Latin American culture. It seems logical now, but 10-years ago it was a tough sell.
Since that time, the landscape has changed dramatically, and for the better. Students all over the world are aware of online learning options, and our student base at Web Spanish has multiplied and diversified.
Web Spanish is proud to be a pioneer and leader in offering Spanish classes online. And we are equally proud that over the past ten years we have never stopped enriching our curriculum and improving our methodology. We do this because we believe we are the best at what we do, and we want to stay that way.
Thank you to all who have supported us and accompanied us since the beginning. We look forward to teaching Spanish to many thousands of students in the decades to come.
Happy Birthday Web Spanish!
