1. Install Skype

At Spanish Online, we use Skype, a free video communication service that anyone can easily use.
(For a detailed explanation on Skype, please refer to this site.)
Please download the latest version from here in advance, and also obtain a Skype name.
To use Skype, you will need a computer, webcam, and a headset (headphone and microphone).

If you are using a computer with an internal camera and microphone, you will only need a headphone. You can receive lessons without a webcam, but it would be more effective to use one because the teacher can observe your expressions to determine whether you are following the lesson.
If there are any issues, please feel free to contact us.
