1. Tus Clases Particulares
1.950.392 people have used this website in order to find private classes called “clases particulares” in Spanish.
The premise of the site is to match teachers to pupils in any subject. Teachers advertise their expertise and create their profile. Their profile can suggest their teaching style. You can also opt to meet in public instead of at home. You can meet for coffee or go to a bar! This way you can easily meet new people and also learn how to speak Spanish with a native speaker. Talking to someone whose Spanish is his native language is a lot more effective!
