About Debbie


Hello! My name is Debbie Elias-Casarez, I’m very happy you decided to take a minute to read more about SPANISH IN SECONDS and Debbie. I was born and raised in Mexico. Autlan is my hometown, a cute and friendly city in the state of Jalisco, also where Carlos Santana was born.


It is very important for me to give you this message because before I was a businesswoman before I was a Spanish Tutor before I was the creator of Spanish in Seconds, Bee Academic Tutoring and VOCA, I was a student. And even though I have a Law degree, I had moments where I wanted to quit studying English. As you might be guessing, English is my second language, and I started studying it at an early age, but I was not able to grasp it…for decades. Imagine my HUGE frustration and all the feelings of failure combined… for decades.

Now that I look back, I can see how I finally did it, and now I’m happy to share with my Spanish students, the SYSTEM I created for me to speak a second language.

And after delivering tons of Spanish session to my students I know that it works as well for English speakers who want to SPEAK SPANISH. So, I would love to share with you my proven method to excel your Spanish learning and to SPEAK SPANISH, and this last one is the optimal goal.

That is why I’m committed to helping every single Spanish student that crosses my path; I leave them more excited to learn the language and provide them with the tools that will help them to enjoy learning.

My commitment, based on my personal journey, is to provide a STEP-BY-STEP learning method smooth enough for people who really want to SPEAK SPANISH; so they can experience the best learning life they can possibly create and ONCE AND FOREVER be able to SPEAK SPANISH.

That’s why I created SPANISH IN SECOND; A platform for digital learning and entertaining experience for people who are interested in speaking SPANISH. I provide a fun and engaging language learning experience for Spanish students while combining lessons, live online workshops and live events.

Sometimes, when I read emails where people share with me how burned out they feel after so many attempts at learning Spanish with no success, and I’m reminded of my past experience at not being able to SPEAK ENGLISH: sadness, hopelessness, anger, despair, frustration, and to add insult to injury, hearing my sisters speaking English with my father all day long.

I’m determined to help you and all the students who have a real interest in SPEAKING SPANISH.

Welcome to Spanish in Seconds. Have fun and Speak Spanish!
