About the program
Our Fluency Boot Camp program is designed to take you from translating in your head or having slow, choppy conversations to confidently carrying on everyday conversations with ease. You will also learn how to train your brain to think in Spanish, and have more in-depth & meaningful conversations that flow naturally and spontaneously.
Here’s what you get when you enroll:
2 - 3 Weekly Live Conversation Practice Sessions With Experienced Native Speakers
Meet with your conversation partner(s) each week to practice speaking about a variety of topics that are of interest to you. Get live feedback, guidance, and support as you work your way through the conversation with fun, interesting native speakers who are experienced at creating a brain-friendly learning environment that will help you get the repetition and confidence you need to begin thinking in Spanish and speaking with ease.
1 Weekly Lesson, Coaching Session, or Conversation Review With Your Spanish Coach
As this is a customized program, the exact sessions you will have each week will vary slightly, according to your needs and goals. Apart from your weekly conversation classes, you will either have a lesson on a particular topic/grammar area that you would like to learn or improve or a conversation review.
The conversation review is a unique way in which your Spanish coach will be able to provide you with personalized feedback on how your conversations are unfolding. You will review part of some of your conversations together, to pinpoint progress and any area that requires more attention. You will get the opportunity to work on any areas that require more work or clarity - ask any questions you have, practice, and learn exactly what it is that's been causing you to get stuck or lost in particular parts of your conversations.
You will meet with your Spanish coach every 3-4 weeks for a coaching session as well, to help us further customize the program to meet your individual needs and provide additional support with any challenges you may be experiencing.
2 Weekly Homework Assignments
Get access to a variety of communication-based resources that you can work through on your own time to reinforce what you're learning during your live sessions, and increase exposure and repetition.
1 Training Video On The Neuroscience Of Learning a Language As an Adult
Get access to our library of resources directed towards the neuroscience of learning a language as an adult - how to learn in harmony with the brain's natural learning processes to facilitate the process and accelerate results, how to train your brain to think in Spanish, how to build confidence, how to release limiting beliefs that may be causing mental blocks and holding you back from achieving your goals.
This program is personalized to meet your needs and will begin and progress according to where you are when you begin the program but here is an example of what each week could look like:
Review and reinforce what you currently know to ensure we have a solid conversational foundation before moving forward and implementing new areas, topics, etc. to your toolbox.
As you get to know the native speaker you will begin conversing with, we will review and practice with what you know during the first week, to get a better idea of how to proceed and then form a strategic plan for moving forward.
With a few conversation practice sessions under your belt, you will meet with your Spanish coach to further discuss your interests, goals, and learning style.
With this information, together we will begin to lay out a plan that will build on what you already know and provide you with the knowledge and practice you need to take your Spanish to the next level. This may include learning new grammatical structures, and vocabulary for specific topics of interest, improving listening comprehension, etc.
If there are specific areas you want to work on, we'll ask that you let us know and we will customize your weekly sessions accordingly. If you simply want to improve your Spanish overall, your Spanish coach will review your conversations to provide recommendations and create a progress plan that will help improve the areas that we notice require more attention.
Implementation, review and feedback.
From this point onwards we will begin to mold your conversation experiences according to the plan you created together with your Spanish coach to prepare you for successful, natural, and effective conversations within the parameters discussed. Every couple of weeks you will meet with your Spanish coach to review how the conversations have been going, take note of progress, address any questions or challenges, implement new strategies and make any adjustments needed to help you reach your goals within the 12 weeks.
it's time to stop translating in your head and begin to think in Spanish to converse with ease & confidence.
Overcome your anxiety for speaking a foreign language and transform your relationship with the language through proper repetition, support and live, personalized feedback.

Here's an example of one of our 1-on-1 fluency (high beginner-advanced) conversation classes:
Is this self-paced?This is a partly self-guided program. This program includes daily support, accountability, and guidance. Each week you have a live lesson on a specific topic and the opportunity to join up to 2 conversation practice sessions with our team of native speakers, to apply what you're learning in a real conversation. The live lessons are at a fixed time and the replays are available immediately if you can’t make it live. For the conversation classes, you will have a few different times to choose from and can select the 2 that work best for you, each week. You also have access to listening strategies, and techniques for improving fluency, vocabulary recall, comprehension, and thinking in Spanish that you can complete at your own pace.
What sort of time commitment should I expect?We meet 3 times a week for about an hour (1 lesson and 2 conversation classes to practice what you learn in the lesson). One of these sessions is optional (the lesson), you can catch the replay if you prefer. You will also have access to other resources that you can work through at your own pace.
Is this program for everyone?No, this course is specifically designed to prepare anyone who is traveling to or moving to Latin America (or Spanish-speaking community in general), to be able to navigate day-to-day situations and converse with the locals, with ease & confidence. This is a beginner program, which is for you if you're just starting out and want to begin on the right foot for conversational Spanish OR if you already know some vocabulary, etc., but would like to take your conversational Spanish to the next level and begin to use it in daily conversation, beyond just the basic greetings.
What sets this program apart from others?This program was created specifically for people who want to learn Spanish for verbal communication purposes primarily. This is a "hands-on" program and 70-80% of your time will be spent learning through doing. We use a holistic approach very similar to the way babies learn their native language (based on the natural learning process of association) but altered to fit an adult's brain and lifestyle. Apart from helping you drastically improve your conversational Spanish & fluency within the 12 weeks, our mission is to help you understand the brain's natural learning processes so you can create a brain-friendly learning environment that facilitates the process and accelerates your results.
What do I need to participate?All you need is a stable internet connection, a quiet environment, and a free Zoom account registered and installed on your device.(if you don't have Zoom yet, we can help you install it).
I am enrolled. Now what?Within the next 24 hours, you will receive an email requesting some additional information and you will get access to all of our available resources that you can begin working through right away! You will also receive instructions on how to join your first live sessions (and the times, etc.) and get started!
Who is my Spanish coach?Nadine Panta Flexhaug will be your Spanish coach. She is originally from Canada and achieved a high level of fluent proficiency in the language in 2012. She was initially educated as an English As a Second Language teacher but gravitated towards the Spanish language not too long after. She has been teaching Spanish for over 10 years and taking students from all over the world through her custom-made programs since 2018 and transforming people's lives in the process!
Will I learn with native Spanish speakers?Yes, your bi-weekly conversation practice sessions will be with native speakers from Latin America. You will be able to participate in these conversation classes in a group setting, of up to 4 people per class. Nadine is your Spanish coach and you will also meet with her (or you can catch the recording) in a larger group setting, for your weekly lessons and coaching sessions.
Who will I be meeting with each week?You will meet with our team of native speakers 3-4 times a week for your weekly lesson and conversation classes. You will also have a coaching session with your bilingual Spanish coach, Nadine, every 3 to 4 weeks. All tutors and conversation partners undergo a comprehensive training course before they join our team and quality control is carried out regularly to ensure a high quality standard. The conversation practice sessions are designed to create a safe practice environment as naturally as possible but your conversation partners are still able to answer questions, help you if you get stuck, and guide you through constructive correction & mirroring (much like how parents teach their babies to speak).
How does is this different from your 12-week Boot Camp programs?We offer 12-week Boot Camp programs for 1-on-1 and small groups(2-3 ppl). These programs are more time-intensive and personalized, with 3-4 weekly sessions that are scheduled around your availability. If you choose the group option, you will be with the same classmates for every scheduled class, throughout the entire 12 weeks so we can personalize each session to your group. This 6-month Beginner Conversation Academy program, it is less time-intensive, including the opportunity to join 2 weekly conversation practice sessions and the option to join 1 live lesson/coaching session with Nadine. If you can’t join the lessons live, you can watch the recording. The conversation classes have a limit of 4 students per class. Anyone in the program can join the lessons & coaching sessions with Nadine (up to 15 people per session).
What if I want a refund?If you’ve joined and attended the live sessions but for whatever reason believe it is not the right fit for you at this time, you are covered by our 14-day Money Back Guarantee. You can submit a written request to cancel your membership and receive a full refund if within 14 days.
How long is this program?It is a 6-month program so that you can experience long-term support, accountability, and therefore, progress!
