Learning the Spanish language will give to your child a valuable competitive advantage in today’s world. Fluently bilingual students score higher in verbal and non-verbal intelligence tests, memory ability, and score higher in reading, language and math. Students gain superior cross-cultural skills and more choices for higher education and job opportunities.
Learn Spanish in an efficient, relaxed and fun way. I specialize in teaching students to become bilingual. My classes are a fun and effective way to learn Spanish.
I am a native professional teacher and expert in providing creative and innovating classes. My principal objective is that my students will be able to start speaking Spanish from the first day of class with a BIG focus on increasing student confidence.
My program is based on "listening and conversation" with play and fun learning interactions. My methodology for teaching Spanish is Immersion; students practice as if they were in a Spanish speaking country. During each class, the students will have an opportunity to practice conversation on various subjects of interest: restaurants, cafes, shopping, vacations, etc., while practicing conjugations, pronunciation and more. Also included are storytelling and writing, class discussions, readings, games, and more! Important cultural explorations will encourage students to be actively engaged with the language, culture, and history so they can proudly say Soy International! – I’m international.
