Songs carry such a deep meaning and cultural richness I decided to base this course on traditional (and not so much) Latin American music to help you learn this beautiful language, develop what you already know and work on your ability to enhance your expression.
If you enjoy music and are curious about Spanish, I'm sure you'll like these lessons!
What to expect of the course:
Lessons are tailor-made for your specific needs, level and objectives.
Our first lesson serves as an introduction to determine your goals, current level, areas of interest, difficulties and abilities.
Each lesson is based on a different song presenting crucial elements for us to work on reading comprehension, written production, speaking, listening, pronunciation and phonetics.
Although I have my own selection of songs for each student, you're very welcome to send your suggestions!
FYI: You're not required to sing but you can certainly do so if you enjoy it :)
I believe the most important thing is to feel motivated, thus I intend to create exercises based on each song and give you resources and updated material about interesting topics so you can keep on learning.
I will also give you homework to practice while you're on your own.
Feel free to e-mail me your doubts and I'll be happy to answer back.
Now, let's begin...
