Take your first steps to becoming a
Master of the Spanish language today!

  • Six monthly modules covering the areas of Spanish you need to know
  • Multimedia lessons presented by expert teachers and native speakers
  • Exercises, challenges and checklists
  • Practise with the Masterclass community in our forums

How does it work?

We've been listening carefully to the comments of the Coffee Break Spanish community and we've built this course to address your needs. With our regular, friendly lessons which fit your lifestyle we'll help you build your knowledge and develop your range of expression with the Coffee Break Spanish Masterclass.

The course is structured in six modules, each module lasting one month. Over the course of the month we'll make available lessons and activities to help you plan your learning and build on what you've learned previously. If you can spend just 20 minutes on your learning two or three times a week, the Masterclass is perfect for you.

The Masterclass fits your schedule: you'll be able to start whenever it suits you. You'll not be overwhelmed from day 1: your first lesson in your first module starts when you're ready to start.

  • Regular audio lessons

    The Masterclass is built around our regular audio lessons, and in each module there will be five main lessons. As usual, the audio lessons are presented by our expert teachers joined by native speakers, and in addition to learning content and original dialogues, you’ll also benefit from our translation challenges and worked examples.

  • Exercises and challenges

    We’ve also developed a set of exercises and challenges for each module which will help you consolidate the language you learn in the lessons. Some of the exercises are based around translations between English and Spanish, and our challenges will involve you putting your language skills to the test with some writing practice.

  • Join the community

    Our private members’ forum will allow you to share your learning with the Masterclass community. You can ask a question about a particular aspect of the module lessons, or try out your language skills and get feedback from the community. The forum is not open to the public, so you can be safe in the knowledge that you’re working with a dedicated group of fellow language learners.

¿Alguna pregunta?

Who is the Masterclass for?

We’ve developed the Masterclass specifically for learners who are at an intermediate level. If you’ve already completed Seasons 1 and 2 of Coffee Break Spanish, then it will be the perfect way to develop your range of expression and build on what you’ve previously learned. The materials covered in each lesson will also be perfect if you’re currently working on Season 3. If you’ve already completed Season 4 we’re sure that you will still find lots of useful materials in the Masterclass to help you consolidate what you’ve already learned. However, some students of Season 4 have found that the Masterclass materials may be a bit too easy.

How do I access the Masterclass?

It’s a bit different from our other courses because this is a monthly membership, running for 6 months. Since it’s an online course you’ll be able to access the audio and video material which is streamed on the website. Please note that there will not be a podcast feed for audio or video elements of the Masterclass. However, it is possible to download the audio and video episodes to your computer or device as they become available.

How does the membership work?

The Masterclass is a monthly recurring membership: you’ll have access to the materials for as long as you continue to make monthly payments. If you decide the Masterclass is no longer for you, you’ll be able to keep any content you have downloaded during your membership. However, you will no longer have access to the online content or the interactive forum. Please note, however, that if you cancel after Module 3, you can’t start again at a later date at Module 4.

When is the Masterclass available for registration?

We're currently moving the Coffee Break Spanish Masterclass over to our new Coffee Break Academy. We'll be launching the reworked version of the Masterclass in the Academy later in the year.

I'm finding the Masterclasses extremely useful and convenient. The topics are nicely targeted to the needs of my level in Spanish, and the materials and activities are well designed. I like the way the learning and challenges are delivered in doable packages that fit in with a busy life!

I like the regular intervals of the Masterclass, which really make me want to keep up and improve my Spanish by a little practice every few days. The modules are extended enough to really dive a bit into a subject like 'verbos' or 'frases hechas' but they are short enough to keep motivated and work your way through them easily. Definitely recommended for everyone enjoying the Coffee Break series or not (yet)!

I am enjoying the Masterclass very much and I am a huge fan of all things Coffee Break Spanish.  I love the fact that there is new material presented every few days of the week.  That keeps things fresh and gives me something new to work on throughout the week.  I also get a lot out of the forum exercises where we attempt to apply what we've learned by creating a sentence/paragraph that incorporates the learning.  Receiving timely feedback about our posts is extremely helpful and provides a great deal of additional learning.

    Hola: Im dutch, and i fellewedy cbs seasony 4, but until now, I didnt complete the course totally. It is funny to see that English speakers have sometimes other problems than I have. My question. Im blind an wenn most of the exercises are picturers where you have to answer on, thats difficult for me. You gave that kind of things on the facebookpages. I have to admit that I didnt look every time. Do you think I can do most of the exercises? Then I love to become a master student. Kind regards, Alwine

      Sorry for the slow reply, Alwine. Most of the exercises on our Masterclass course are text-based and don’t involve images. I hope that helps. Dank je vel!

    In your video about the Master Class, you offer the course for 27 pounds, but then underneath it, you’ve raised the price 🙁

      Sorry for any confusion, Kasey. We’ve updated the video. There was an introductory price in January for the Masterclass, but the fixed price per month is now £33.00 GBP inc VAT, or approximately $36.00 USD ex VAT at the current exchange rate. Hope that helps.

    Hi I’m interested in trying the Masterclass materials. At present I am in Spain,, where I spend a lot of time. However my home base is still in Scotland. If I buy the course while I am in Spain, will I be charged Spanish VAT or because my email address and permanent residential address are in Scotland, will I pay UK VAT?

      Hi Jim. The Academy website normally calculates VAT based on where the transaction takes place, in accordance with the EU digital sales regulations. To be honest I’m not sure what happens if you then put in your Scottish address. The differences in tax rate is just 1%, so for each of the six Masterclass payments it would work out at around £0.25. Hopefully that answers your question.

    Thanks. Sorry should have checked the VAT rates before asking the question. I think I might just be able to afford £0.25 – or € for that matter! I’ll just go ahead and order.

    Hi Mark!
    I’ve just about finished all of the coffee break Spanish modules, I’m on #73. I’m not sure if this is considered season 4 or not. Is the master class still for me?
    I love CBS and don’t know what I will do on the way to work in the morning without it!

      Lesson 73 is what’s now known as lesson 33, Season 2. The Masterclass may be useful but it’s probably worth having a listen to Season 3 materials first and see if you find them too challenging. The Masterclass isn’t currently available until we’ve moved it into our new Academy system. This should be around the end of February 2017.

    Hi Mark

    I was subscribing to Master Class downloading the lesson notes and mp3 files but then my PC crashed and I was unable to download the video review of Module 6 (.mp4 file) – could you send it to me please. I enjoyed the course.

    I am a little disappointed that my data on the radiol lingua site cannot be automatically transferred to the Coffee Break academy site.

      Do you still have access to the Masterclass? Please get in touch with us on the Helpdesk by emailing and we can open up the access to the Masterclass for you again to allow you to download all the associated files. Hope this helps.
