My methodology is on a one to one basis with a communicative approach and emphasis in speaking of words and commands. Teaching is an absolute passion of mine and learning Spanish will bring a lot of benefits to your life. As with all new skills, learning a foreign language requires practice. Thus, you should expect to work hard in this class; you should be prepared to study on your own as well as complete homework. You will be required to speak most of the time in Spanish during classes, as you will only have class time to practice.
You will discover the fun of speaking Spanish while building a basic vocabulary that can be put into practice at work, with friends, or while traveling. You can expect to develop listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills to communicate. Throughout the classes you will be introduced to different forms of the Hispanic world culture, from everyday life experiences, emphasis on communities, communication and connections.
I am a Spanish Teacher with more than 2 years of experience. Also, I have 5 years of experience as a University Professor in Mexico. In addition, I am a Spanish Community Translator and Cultural Broker. My professional background included a Post-MBA, MBA, BA in Economics.
Learning Spanish would help you in getting involved in the communities that you will visit and communicate better with people who live there to learn about their culture and customs. I offer targeted Spanish lessons for travelers (business and leisure) to get you ready for the trip.
