Interact in your language daily without travelling.

A big misconception is that you must travel to a country where your target language is spoken, to learn the language effectively.


this simply is not true...


A reason (or excuse) people mention for not learning languages is that they can’t visit a country where it’s a native language. No time, no money, etc. blah, blah blah...

Take it from me — there is nothing “in the air” in another country that will magically make you able to speak their language.

In my experience I’ve met countless expats who have lived away from 'home' for years without learning the local language. Because living abroad and being immersed is not the same thing.

If you need to hear and use a language consistently to be immersed, can’t virtual immersion be just as effective? Certainly. Now technology opens so many doors and makes it possible for immersion to come to you, without buying a plane ticket!

  1. To hear the language consistently spoken, you can check out TuneIn.com for a vast selection of live-streamed radio from your country of choice. The app (free) also has a list of streamed radio stations ordered by language.
  2. To watch the language consistently, see what’s trending on Youtube in that country right now.
  3. Various news stations also have plenty of video content online in specific languages, such as The Guardian, New York times, France24, Deutsche Welle, CNN Español, and many others.
  4. To read the language consistently, in addition to the news sites listed above, you can find cool blogs and other popular sites on Alexa’s ranking of top sites per country.

And if full-on immersion is your goal, then book a class with a native! Speaking practice can be achieved with Online classes, or Skype language exchanges.
A consistent speaking outlet, will ensure results... So what are you waiting for - Book a class now!

Hello! At times do you feel blocked or uncomfortable when speaking in English? Do you need to improve your conversational skills in English? Do you need to speak better business English? Do you want to get a better job? Hi My name's Olivia and I am a Verbling tutor and I specialise in conversational classes and business English to take your English to the next level! I am originally from Auckland, New Zealand but I'm half British and I live in sunny Barcelona, but Spain for the last 6 years, so I have a neutral English accent. In my lessons we will discuss a variety of everyday topics and I will give you the tools to do this! In our lessons we will focus on the vocabulary that YOU need, with an emphasis on SPEAKING. Our main goal is to improve your confidence so that you will communicate better in every situation. 1. Booking a trial lesson with me: You will receive a comprehensive level evaluation. . Then, during the trial I will determine your oral ability and we will talk about the areas you need to improve. (Even If you don't decide to take lessons with me the trial will give you an excellent idea of what you need to work on!) 2. Your English action plan: we will make your plan. We are going to discuss how you can use English in a way that you will enjoy, every single day. The central part of my plan for your English is to make sure that you are using it or exposed to it each day - that's the fastest way to improve. Lastly, I have an international TEFL Certification, and I have taught over 1000 students from over 100 countries. From companies here in Spain such as Vogue, Booking.com and Apple. 4. If you are interested in Business English classes you will receive a text from the Business Results Oxford edition. This way you are guaranteed to practice the four skills: Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing. I look forward to meeting you so we can sit down and have a chat and create your English Action plan together! Best, Olivia
