Here is an excerpt of our interview with Abhijeet Rishu:
Q1. When and how you started as a Spanish Language Trainer?
Ans. I learned the language through Google casually. Considering the importance and popularity of the language (second most widely spoken language in the world), I planned to start giving online training to students from Feb, 2014, under the name of Online Virtual Classroom for Spanish language (Aula Virtual de español), over video calls. Later, my first website Learn Spanish Online was built which attracted plenty of students. Finally, I am on the verge of launching an online platform named as ARVSL, a centre for learning Spanish, Arabic & German.
Q2. What skills are required to become a Spanish Language Trainer?
Ans. To become a language trainer it is important to understand the constructs of sentences in the language. Once the constructs are known, application of grammar and tense completes the language and allows carrying out any conversation in the language. While giving trainings, I take care of explaining the concepts behind framing a sentence in different tense rather than asking the students to learn the translations word by word directly. In fact, I would suggest every learner to learn a particular language, one should learn the vocabularies and the grammar primarily.
Q3. What do you think makes you stand out from other Spanish Language Trainers on UrbanPro.com?
Ans. I never follow the conventional methods of teaching followed in other institutes. I help the learners to understand how to frame sentences on their own without asking to practice common conversations. The other point is, my flexibility which I provide to my students with respect to the timings and the fees. I am open to train 24*7 as I have students from abroad as well. I try to relate the language with the native language of the students making them easier to grasp a foreign language in its native form. Last but not the least, the fees which I quote is pretty affordable, making foreign language training economical and acceptable to all classes of people who want to pursue their career in the language field.
Q4. How you came across UrbanPro.com?
Ans. When I planned to provide trainings, I needed a platform where I can search for my prospects. While browsing through internet, I found UrbanPro (earlier named as ThinkVidya.com) as one of most convenient platforms to get students as per a trainer’s requirements. Hence, I registered and have been using the portal since 2 yrs. I am thankful to be selected for UrbanPro’s Pro of the month award for Feb 2017.
Q5. What was the turning point in your career?
Ans. I started with a handful of students from only some specific locations. During the course of time, I successfully managed to get students from all over India and fortunately from countries like Argentina, Mexico, Kenya, U.K, Singapore and Dubai. Truly, it is a great achievement for me but still I wish to explore more.
Q6. How UrbanPro.com platform helped you to expand your Spanish Language Classes?
Ans. It helped me getting genuine individual students or even in groups from different backgrounds and age groups. It modifies and specifies the search for students, thus helping the trainers to filter out students as per suitable requirements with respect to the location, level of learning and mode of training (online/offline).
Q7. What percentage of your work comes from UrbanPro?
Ans. 65% of my work comes from UrbanPro. I appreciate this platform which has helped me broadcast my trainer profile and expertise to million of registered learners on UrbanPro. Higher profile visibility has helped me get direct calls from national and international companies for corporate assignments.
