Learn Spanish with native speakers from home for just $3 a lesson

Practice Spanish with peers abroad

It's like a study abroad program brought right to your laptop. 

If you're a Spanish teacher looking for an EdTech tool,

Our approach

Our instructors type & correct

what the learner says during the conversation into the platform

The learner sees it in real time

The  instructor explains the corrections to help the student learn faster

Content and Privacy

Lessons are automatically recorded and saved on your child's computer

A transcript of the lesson is accessible to parents/teachers after each lesson

Why it works

Immersion. Visualization. Personalized content.


You can't learn how to speak without actually speaking. By matching you with your peers across the world we create this interaction through free video conferencing without any travel expenses.


What can be more personalized material than working with your own mistakes? As you understand those mistakes and avoid repeating them in the future, something magical happens: your confidence goes through the roof!


You no longer study material that is completely impersonal to you. This way you zero in on things that you personally need to improve. The graphs will show how quickly each student will progress using this approach.

Personalized Homework automatically graded upon completion

When instructors correct the students, the platform registers all the data, and then creates personalized homework for each student based on the mistakes that they made during the class.

The platform automatically grades the homework upon completion and the teacher can verify that the homework has been completed.

Powerful Tracking Tools

Parents and teachers have immediate access to the performance reports generated by the platform

All you have to do is



If the graphs don't show expected results or for any other reason, the content of each lesson can be reviewed by diving down into each lesson file. There is absolutely zero room for slacking.


Our tracking tools provide a clear picture of the learner's progress by measuring how fast the learner is speaking in each class and their error percentage on a lesson-by-lesson basis.

Foreign language learning is not only more FUN, but also more EFFICIENT when applied conversing with peers from abroad

  • Facilitating one-on-one interaction between students who are native speakers in different languages enables this interaction... and is much more fun and motivating for the students (plus it gives a break to the teacher!).


With OCTB, my students are talking in Spanish during 50 minutes straight, which is otherwise impossible.

Now my students have a reference of what life outside of their country looks like, and that is lifelong learning.

If this was my primary source of learning a foreign language, it would provide everything that I need.
