Hotel Borbollon provides immersion-style Spanish education. Unlike most apps, which offer unlimited learning upon purchase, Hotel Borbollon delivers 15 minute lessons to your email, 4 times per week. During each lesson, the AI will assess and adjust your skill level based on your responses to the last 150 questions. The lessons are designed for individuals who have a basic grasp of the language, and can understand grammar explanations in Spanish without translation.
The daily lessons follow a humorous storyline, in addition to providing iconic songs or movie clips relevant to Spanish culture; they emphasize listening comprehension, grammar drills, new vocabulary, comics, and culturally-relevant videos. Unfortunately, with an exorbitant price tag and limited lessons per month, it’s more economical to experience the free trial and then look for an alternative resource.
