“New year, new me.” We often hear this phrase thrown around at the start of each year, so much that it became a laughingstock. Well, don’t let it be if you have serious Spanish language learning goals this year. To help you out with that, I’ve scoured the Internet for cheap Spanish courses online you can enroll in.

Did you know that you can learn Spanish online for as low as ₱299? These online Spanish courses cost ridiculously low, and the language schools that offer them are based abroad. The prices may change without notice, so it’s best if you take advantage of the promos as early as you can.

Let’s get you started speaking in Spanish, without breaking the bank:

Knowledge Door

This language school charges the lowest fee in this listicle. Before, it would cost you PH₱24,151 to avail of their Spanish course. But now, you only have to pay PH₱299 through Metrodeal. With this promo, you can choose between Italian for intermediate level or Spanish for beginner level.

Knowledge Door is one of the international language schools that offer their courses for Filipinos. They are based in the United Kingdom.

Lead Academy

Lead Academy is a language school that offers practical courses and professional accreditation, and they are based in the United Kingdom as well. Aside from Spanish, they also teach other European languages such French, Italian and German.

Cervantes Idiomas

Don’t confuse this language school with Instituto Cervantes de Manila because they are two different institutions. Cervantes Idiomas is based in the United States, but they offer their courses here in the local currency. They only focus in teaching Spanish, so if you’re looking to study other languages, you can find luck in other schools listed here.

I’m sure that the cheap Spanish courses aforementioned will help you get back on track to become a confident Spanish speaker this year.
