Most high school or regular Spanish courses start by teaching you dull grammar rules and complex language notions. There has to be a better way! We, at Mondly - the language app loved by millions of people worldwide, take an opposite approach. Our language experts care deeply about your ability to have real conversations in Spanish as fast as possible. That's why, rather than bombarding you with complex notions in the beginning of your course, we start by involving you in a real conversation. Through this approach, you will be able to have your first Spanish conversation after only 5 minutes of using our app. Encouraging, right?
Our linguists have also identified one of the major secrets of how to speak Spanish: listening to native speakers in a natural setting. Because our brain is wired to absorb the information we hear, our experts made listening an essential part of learning Spanish. As a result, during all our lessons you will hear natives speak in Spanish clearly, correctly and in context. This way, you will pick up the natural Spanish pronunciation of core words effortlessly.
The most important part of learning Spanish is getting a chance to practice what you learned by speaking the language. Otherwise, it’s all lost, like most of what we’ve learned in school. That’s exactly why our language experts have included Spanish speaking exercises in every lesson. No need to find a Spanish friend to help you rehearse. No need to go to a Spanish speaking country. How can this be possible? We have created a high-tech computer program you can use to have a smart conversation with (really!). We call it the Mondly Chatbot. Sit back and it engages in a conversation with you using a friendly, native Spanish voice. Don’t be shy: respond to its questions or even ask it one. Like magic, it will understand what you are saying and respond like a regular person would. No wonder millions of people around the world have already tried our Chatbot to learn how to speak Spanish.
The great minds of our time consider Virtual Reality (VR) to be the future of technology. Acknowledging the tremendous potential of this technology, we worked with our world class linguists to shape the future of language learning through Virtual Reality.

The Spanish language has its roots in the Iberian Peninsula having been largely influenced by Latin during the expansion of the Roman Empire. Despite this fact, it’s surprising to see that the majority of Spanish speakers live in Latin America. Here, the colonization of the Americas has made Spanish the official language in big countries such as Argentina, Colombia, Mexico, Chile or Venezuela.
This means you can visit almost all of South America and feel like home just by speaking Spanish. Even though Spanish is spoken in a lot of countries there is little difference in accent, grammar, pronunciation or vocabulary. This means that if you speak Spanish you will feel at home if you’re traveling or moving to any of the Spanish speaking countries around the world.
Spanish is the 3rd most spoken language worldwide, so you'll definitely have a lot to gain by learning conversational Spanish. For example, you'll be able to interact with people anytime you visit Peru, Argentina or Spain.
Wherever you plan to travel to Mexico, Spain or Colombia, speaking Spanish will enhance your experience significantly. You will be able to experience Spanish speaking countries like a native and have an authentic experience in the process.
Being able to speak Spanish increases your employability significantly and makes you stand out from the crowd. This means that you will have better chances of getting a well paid job in the first place, better chances of getting promoted or getting a better job in a Spanish speaking country.
Studies indicate that being bilingual or a polyglot increase the grey matter in your brain. This means that speaking Spanish makes you smarter than you currently are. So, what are you waiting for?
