After recently signing a contract partnering with Maximo Nivel last month, internal changes are under way to make the transition quickly and efficiently as possible.
Maximo Nivel have acquired ownership of Spanish language center located in Antigua Guatemala, to continue their expansion into other countries of Latin America. This adds a 3rd location from where they conduct operations, teaching Spanish along with TESOL. Physical ownership of the school should occur mid September with the legal paperwork already in process. Many changes will be happening in the Antigua school, with a full renovation of the current building located at 6 Avenida Norte #16 a in Antigua Guatemala. This will entail planning as it will continued to be used as the main base of operations for 121Speechâ€˜s online Spanish classes. Advertising will be reduced to a minimum by the Spanish language center while the renovations are taking place to control the inflow of new students, so work can be completed on time. Final completion date still has not been decided, at this stage is projected for late October 2009.

Ã¢â‚¬Å“ In conjunction to this the curriculum used by 121 has under gone changes to facilitate ease of use and compatibility with both teacher and studentÃ¢â‚¬ , reports Craig.
121 Speech has as dedicated staff to a full time advertising program, designed to raise the online awareness of their service and status amongst other more formal tutoring programs. Craig has utilized staff from around the world to reduce costs in this new program. Some of the employeeâ€˜s locales are from distant countries such as Bangladesh, Holland, Peru and Austin Texas USA. Skype video conferencing is a major key in allowing him to stay in constant contact with his staff on a daily basis. This is the same technology that powers their Online Spanish classes.
To ease the process of training new online Spanish teachers from the partnership with Maximo Nivel , 121Speech has flown staff from Guatemala to Maximoâ€˜s main base in Cusco Peru. Currently training is in progress and should be completed by the end of August. Current students are given free Spanish lessons with the training teachers on a random basis. This will ensure when Spanish lessons start from Cusco that the quality will be in line with 121 Speech standards.
