San Diego, CA – Mexican-American entrepreneurs Alvaro Sanchez Diaz and Abraham Arechiga Arias are proud to announce the launch of industry-specific Spanish programs through their online Spanish school, Spanish55, which offers one-on-one Spanish lessons over Skype to busy professionals in the United States. All the tutors are fully bilingual native Spanish speakers, allowing students to be exposed to authentic Spanish language and culture.
Spanish55 is already the highest rated provider of Spanish lessons on several platforms including “Thumbtack”, where they currently hold the #1 spot countrywide with a perfect 5-star rating. The young entrepreneurs have also been recently featured in major news sources such as Entrepreneur Mexico.
According to founders Diaz and Arias, programs such as Rosetta Stone, Duolingo, or audio CDs aren’t always effective because the student is still liable to freeze up when trying to actually speak the language. Spanish55 was founded with one goal only: to help Americans speak Spanish, (no more “nod and smile, nod and smile”).
“We have selected the best methodologies and teaching practices to help you reach conversational fluency in Spanish,” says Diaz. “You should expect speaking and listening practice from the very first Skype session. It is our goal to have you thinking in Spanish as soon as possible.”
The program is unique and designed with the flexibility to allow tutors to tailor specific vocabulary and idioms according to the student’s personal goals.
“After all,” adds Arias, “You want to be able to use the language effectively in real-world conversations.”
Spanish55 works with busy professionals from all industries, but has had particular success teaching Spanish to healthcare professionals in the United States, who are now able to communicate effectively with their native Spanish-speaking patients. They’ve also seen huge success with business owners, investors and executives, as well as employees of companies and international organizations. And although most of the clients are located in the U.S., the company has also worked with people in Brazil, Malawi, Denmark, and many expats living in Mexico.
Creators Diaz and Arias came up with the idea to create an online Spanish school after they had graduated from college and found themselves working in Southern California, where there is a huge market of Americans with the need to learn Spanish. Over 40% of the population in California is Latino, and many companies do business with Mexico.
“If you’re non-bilingual and looking for a job in California, you have a big disadvantage!’ explains Arias.
In 2014 the two young men began a pilot program involving almost a hundred Americans, who took Spanish lessons over Skype for two months. The feedback was overwhelmingly positive, and after working with suggestions provided by participants, the business model for Spanish55 was born.
Spanish55 was created with the understanding that many people attempt to learn the language but never actually master the ability to speak it. The platform offers conversational Spanish lessons via Skype with trained tutors certified to teach Spanish as a second language, at reasonable prices.
The program is geared toward people who wish to learn Spanish for personal growth and/or professional development. Tutors are assigned based on the student’s individual needs, and lessons are arranged as often as required over the internet.
