Spoken language is unique to humans, therefore it only makes sense to learn a language speaking with another person, not from an app or video! While these tools can be helpful, we believe that conversing with another person is essential to language learning! We also have a dedicated support team of people ready and eager to help you in any way, you won’t have to talk to a machine ever!
At Bloom our method is student oriented, respecting the natural process of learning a new language. Classes are designed to stimulate and inspire our students to maximize learning to its full potential.
With classes that make learning fun and engaging, accompanied with the guidance of our teachers, students can submerge themselves into a world that will open new doors for them in the future.
Bloom works directly on your browser. You do not need to download or install any software.
You will need an updated version of Windows (minimum Windows 7) or Mac OSD (minimum version 10, 12).
You also need speakers and a microphone. Most students find headphones very useful in order to block out noise and concentrate better during classes, but this is not a requirement. You can use the microphone and speakers that come with your device.
Our platform is specifically designed with your security in mind. This is of the utmost importance to us at Bloom. All of our classes are recorded and monitored by Bloom supervisors, you can also easily access the recording of your classes. Teachers are carefully selected with Bloom Spanish standards in mind, and a background check is carried out for each one.
You will begin speaking new words in Spanish in the first class! Our classes have an immersive, conversational approach with each class building on the last. Learning a language takes time and each student has their own learning pace. Stick with it and you will begin to see progress in no time!
We recommend two to three classes per week. In order to remember new words you need to use them frequently. If too much time passes in between classes, you might not remember what was learned in the last class. Consistency is key when learning a second language.
Classes at Bloom Spanish are 100% online and last 45 minutes. This is the perfect amount of time to get real conversation going. Before each lesson, you can practice vocabulary with our before class material. After class you will have access to activities to reinforce what was learned.

Teachers rotate at Bloom Spanish, so you may find yourself with a few different teachers. Each one follows the Bloom Spanish curriculum so they are able to pick up where the last left off. Speaking with different tutors keeps learning fresh and interesting!
Our teachers are from many different countries which can be very beneficial to learning by giving you an ear for a few different accents!
We use Big Blue Button. It is a video conferencing software designed for live, digital learning. You will have access to a brief tutorial on how to use the platform and a Big Blue Button meeting link where you can familiarize yourself with the platform before your first class.
We offer class challenges so that you can take a little Spanish to your everyday life!
Challenges may include watching a movie in Spanish, or with Spanish subtitles on, or making a traditional Spanish recipe. These are offered as fun ways to keep improving your Spanish and build cultural awareness. You are not required to do the class challenge, but we certainly recommend it!
