There are a great many websites that offer online Spanish classes, each making promises and offers to tempt the would-be student to take their online Spanish course with them. But how do you know what you are getting?
In our experience of talking to online Spanish students about their previous classes and courses we have noted that it can be hard at first to determine whether the quality of the classes they are receiving is good or not. In many cases, several weeks or months may go by before the student begins to realize that they are not learning as fast as they might. Very often it is only by experiencing the difference between one teacher and another, one method and another, that a student can come to recognize the good from the bad. But by then it may already be too late - the money has already been spent!
Too many online Spanish course websites merely connect a student with a teacher, charge the student and pay the teacher and pocket the difference, without giving any thought to the pedagogical or methodological issues, or without carrying out any oversight or supervision of the teacher to see that what they are teaching the student is valid and appropriate and meets a minimum standard.
In Spanish there is a saying that translates roughly as "the cheap turns out expensive" (Lo barato sale caro). This is equally true of online Spanish courses, where any number of wasted hours of cheap classes would have been much better spent on fewer hours of better organized and conducted classes.
