Your time is precious and we want to use it wisely – particularly your time in the classroom. That’s why we’ve developed the following digital components to be completed on your own time. You’ll use them to form a knowledge base, at your own pace, so you can come to your face-to-face sessions ready to start speaking!
Meet the characters of ‘Buena Onda’, our delightfully-quirky original Spanish World telenovela. See for yourself how narrative-driven lessons, with multi language subtitles, make language learning intuitive and entertaining!
Aprende will cover the basics of grammar – a crucial aspect of any language, and one which is well-suited to self-study. Start to learn it at home, then come to class with your questions prepared!
Surf the menu in a matter of lessons with help from our original cartoons, postcards, scripts, tweets and other texts, all with accompanying audios designed to help you learn Spanish for the real world.
In this component you’ll tackle games and quizzes to ensure the prior lessons have been absorbed, as well as learning about how you’re learning Spanish – where are your trouble spots, where can the teacher help, and what is coming more easily? It’s all part of your custom Spanish journey.

Why Spanish World?
Spanish World is the only school in Hong Kong with accreditation from the Cervantes Institute, as well as a certified school under the Education Bureau. It’s our mission to bring the rich and enticing world of Spanish to HK and that, through the language, our students connect with and be part of the Spanish speaking world.
Over 15 years we have been perfecting the way we do this, and our Comunica method is the product of our efforts do constantly bring our students a richer Spanish experience.

What do our students say?
I have studied many languages and this is the first time I am part of a teaching method so sophisticated, diverse and engaging as Comunica…Online content allows you to practice all the skills of the language as many times as you want. I am a screen writer myself and the sitcom they have produced “Buena Onda” is of the highest quality.
I feel that I am overall having the best experience at Spanish World and learning so much. There is nothing I don´t like about it, the teachers, the classmates, the app, the flexibility, the quizzes and all the practice content, the videos, everything fits perfectly. I can also see my progression over the space of 2 months and I am thankful for the customer service I get from everyone.
It is a very refreshing way to study a language and I am very motivated to continue doing it, as I am definitely learning a lot. My only concern is the side of the font for the handbook or cuaderno de viaje, but the content in it, as well as the digital platform, is excellent.
My Spanish has improved rapidly after taking classes at Spanish World for just over a year. It gave me confidence to speak Spanish with native speakers!
