Welcome to TeamFLC’s hybrid model, our response to the COVID-19 situation: experience success with our professionally designed, proven curriculum via our online platform and our dynamic, face-to-face virtual classes! 5+ years in the making, we’ve created a true online community: the magic that makes it all work at FLC.

How it works:

  1. Each week, watch your PRE-class video lesson (created by #TeamFLC) detailing the essential new structure(s) for that week’s 2 upcoming LIVE face-to-face sessions. This semi ‘flipped’ format will guide your initial understanding of new concepts – central to our conversation practice of it during the LIVE face-to-face classes. Learners’ preparation, as in all flipped models, will be critical to our communicative model. Bridge the Gap towards fluency with our online curriculum platform to easily keep up with the class lessons!

2. Students meet in our Zoom Pro ‘virtual classrooms’ for face-to-face instruction. Follow along as our instructor guides you through culturally-rich activities designed to promote one’s speaking and listening skills. With features such as break-out discussion rooms, the interactive whiteboard, file sharing, etc., our ‘virtual classroom’ offers benefits you hadn’t dreamed of – online! 

Saturday ‘Cafe’, also takes place in our ‘virtual classroom’, where language truly comes to life. Activities, games, convo, oh my! #TeamFLC knows that those students who attend regularly see amazing progress – and we can’t wait to show all the some progress online!  ‘Cafe’ differs slightly from our weekday courses: while these dynamic conversation groups don’t follow a set curriculum, they’re ideal for letting the language wash over you and for practicing what you’ve learned that week (and whatever else you want to learn in our #student-driven portion!) in rich cultural context.

*Bring your coffee (and bright positive attitudes that we love about our community!) and we’ll see you there! 

Pronunciation Workshops

Start Perfecting Your Accent Today!

A note on ‘which’ Spanish: FLC created the Spanish Pronunciation Workshops for the global Spanish learner. While our videos primarily feature our teacher Oscar, who hails from Mexico, the general trend in Spanish programs throughout the U.S. (ours included) is to teach a generalized variety of Latin American Spanish based on the most commonly shared linguistic features across Latin America. Usually, we teach the sounds of dialects spoken in the highland areas of countries like Mexico, Colombia, and Peru. Such dialects generally lack highly distinctive sounds like the “th” in Spain, or the “zh” in Argentina – however! We frequently address these regional accent nuances in our videos and in our classes. Overall, our Spanish workshops not only help you learn about the different Spanish sounds, but our multi-media approach actually helps you practice them so that you can improve your accent ‘pronto’!
