How long do I have to complete the course?
You can finish the course in a few days or take the entire 6 months to complete. You receive 6 months of unlimited access to all course materials. No restrictions.

What teacher support is available?

How will I learn about cultural issues?
Every module includes a culture awareness tip to help you understand differences between the cultures.
What Spanish dialect is taught?
SpanishOnPatrol teaches real-life situational Spanish focused on dialects from all regions south of the border. We have teamed up with dozens of translators ensuring that our Spanish is understood by folks from Mexico, Central and South America, also addressing Spanglish (combination of Spanish and English). Traditional courses focus on one dialect from one region (usually from the teacher's home region).
What kind of computer do I need?
SpanishOnPatrol is a web-based internet course with no software to install or download. Speakers or headphones are recommended. A microphone (optional) is required to use the Voicelab feature.
How do I know what I sound like?
Our state-of-the-art Voicelab allows you to record yourself and compare your pronunciation with the teacher.
