Our Partners

Speak Shop's mission is to provide the best online Spanish tutoring, promote cross-cultural understanding and create economic opportunity in developing countries. To achieve our mission, we are proud to work with the following organizations:


PROBIGUA

PROBIGUA is an immersion Spanish school in Antigua, Guatemala.  All of Speak Shop's teachers taught or are teaching at PROBIGUA.  PROBIGUA has worked with Speak Shop since 2004 and has supported the teachers by providing them with a computer lab and access to the Internet.

The Academia de Español PROBIGUA (Proyecto Bibliotecas Guatemala) is dedicated to two goals:

  1. Spanish School: Providing the beginning, intermediate, and advanced student of Spanish with an intensive, total-immersion experience
  2. Helping the children of Guatemala by donating the school's profits to maintain the two library buses as well as to establish and maintain libraries in the many rural villages in which there is no access to books.

PRONTO SPANISH

Pronto Spanish is the leader in online, occupational Spanish courses, and they recently partnered with us to provide Spanish Classes for Work.  Working professionals now can learn Spanish for their job at their own pace and practice it 1-on-1 with a native-speaking Spanish tutor--all from the convenience of their own home! You can learn more about this in our recent press release.

MedSpanish

Speak Shop has recently partnered with MedSpanish to offer medical and general Spanish language skills to health care providers, physicians, medical students, nurses, allied professionals, and pre-professional students.  Participants can earn up to 50 CME credits.

MedSpanish is part of a larger program, called PACE, that provides a significant percent of life support training and certification including maternal mortality reduction programs in Mexico. Because of this, the Mexican government lets MedSpanish students come and learn in their hospitals.

Participants visit PACE-MedSpanish in San Miguel, Mexico, for 1 to 4 weeks of “general Spanish in a healthcare setting.”  Students will be matched with instructor for two to three hours of focused individualized instruction teaching per day and then simultaneously reinforce those skills in a variety of healthcare settings such as general hospitals, clinics, rural health brigadas, and Red Cross ambulances.

PACE-MedSpanish also offers an international medicine fellowship program to enhance the understanding of public health and its cultural and language components,  through educational and international development projects in Mexico and Latin America.
