Member of the Week: Fluento

Alexander Willie is the founder of Fluento. Fluento is an Online Spanish-Language School. It offers Spanish language skills through direct Spanish instructions given by experienced Spanish teachers who are native speakers. Fluento is a member of the betahaus since 2011. Fluento offers you a free trial lesson for all betahaus members. The code is “betahaus12” and is valid until 31st July 2012. To redeem that coupon, one needs to register to member section My-Fluento for free and then enter the code at "Guthaben aufladen”.

How long has Fluento existed? What is the goal of Fluento?

We exist since the beginning of 2008, we launched in June that year. Our goal is to bring professional language teaching to everyone with a broadband internet connection, at any time and to any place.

Fluento offers Online Spanish courses. What type of courses do you offer for your clients?

The courses are individual one-on-one courses, so we offer all types, e.g.:- private tutoring- special D.E.L.E preparation courses- tutoring and exam preparation for students- holiday courses- refresher courses- conversation, etc.

What is the positive side of Fluento if you compare with the traditional language school?

- Fluento Spanish lessons are cheaper than private lessons in Western countries, because the teachers work in South- and Middle America where living expenses are lower.- You can take lessons wherever you want, without driving to a school. For example,  Monday evening at home, Tuesday at lunchtime...- You can take individual classes at times that are convenient to you.- You only pay classes that you scheduled.- You have unlimited access to professional teachers and expert linguists not only in big cities, but also in smaller towns or in the countryside.

Your Spanish teachers are certified by Fluento and they have years of experience in the online teaching at all levels. How did you find the teachers?

We only work with professional language schools as a partner, so every teacher has experience in teaching offline, since several years also online. We choose the partner schools wisely by their teaching methods, material and of course the profiles of the teachers. Typically, our teachers have better qualifications than standard language teachers in Germany or Western countries. Most of them have work experience abroad and a degree in linguistics. We also have doctors of linguistics teaching Spanish, which is a great chance for students to meet them online at an incredible price.

How long your students need to reach advanced knowledge (B2)? Which certificate you admit at the end of the course?

The duration of courses to reach a certain level depends mostly on the students motivation, commitment and time, but if you compare it with the Cervantes courses, where you have group classes for A1 (60 hours) and A2 (90 hours) and then B1 (120 hours) and B2 (150 hours), the sum would be 420 hours to reach B2, here...a one-on-one Fluento course should take you there in half of the time (200 hours) with a better quality, because it is effective individual teaching. The teacher will individually motivate the student, analyse the students strengths and weaknesses and train them with a higher conversational part.

Do you have some future plans for Fluento?

Yes, we want to invest more in our French launch, that we have done this year and we are planning to offer more languages, the next languages are English, French, Italian and Chinese.

  • More Team Rooms
  • More Call Boxes
  • A Rooftop Terrace
  • A Café

We'll be updating The Move landing page with photos as we have them, so watch out for that!

when do you need a notary?

We’ll open the doors of our new space between mid-August and mid-September 2018. We plan to begin moving in July to ensure that the space is functional and comfortable by the time you get there. Bottom line, we’ll do everything we can to make the move as seamless as possible.

The move is our third big announcement of 2018 following the news that we’re be expanding our operations with betahaus | Tirana and managing coworking for Berlin’s new blockchain space, Full Node

The idea behind betahaus was never to be just a coworking space. We wanted to create a platform where people of our generation could thrive personally and professionally. We’ve always thought we could do this on a much bigger scale and we’re thrilled to see it happening. We’re excited about what we’re able to learn from this move, not just for betahaus, but for the future of coworking in Europe.

We’re sure you have a lot of questions about what’s coming next. 

We want to hear from you! Email us at themove@betahaus.com or join us for a closed Town Hall where we’ll answer all of your questions and talk through any concerns. We’ve also started members-only page for FAQs, resources, and important dates about the move (check your inbox!). 

We've got some big changes ahead of us, but one thing's for sure: we're so glad to have you with us for the ride!

We're looking forward to this new challenge, and will keep you updated along the way. Get in touch with any questions you might have about Full Node!
