• Advanced course setup
• Guided student learning
• Speech Recognition


Speech Recognition
Speech Recognition analyzes student utterances in real-time and objectively determines whether a student knows the word. It provides interactive feedback that helps student reflect on their language patterns and increases their awareness of pronunciation.
Grading tools
Convenient options for grading include spot-checking, student-by-student, and question-by-question approaches. Plus, in-line editing tools and voice comments provide additional opportunities for targeted feedback.
Virtual companion text for student reference, accessible from within Portales
Student Engagement
Students start with low-stakes exploration and learning, moving on to practice, communication, self-check, and assessment. Proven content helps students navigate the course with confidence, engaging and preparing them, one step at a time.
Partner Chat Activities
Partner chat activities allow students to carry out a conversation in pairs via video or audio. This synchronous chat tool provides for the elements of true interpersonal communication: conversational collaboration, spontaneity, creativity, and negotiation of meaning.
Video Virtual Chats
Video virtual chats provide students with opportunities to develop their listening and speaking skills and to build confidence as they practice with recordings of native speakers.


Portales has flexible options to suit your fully online, hybrid, or face-to-face Spanish courses.
