Is time para hablar Español 

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, memory ability, 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 am specializing 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 innovative 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 my student’s 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 class, the student will have an opportunity to practice conversation on various subjects of interest:  restaurants, cafes, shopping, vacations, etc., while practicing conjugations, pronunciation and more.  Classes also Include storytelling, writing, class discussions, readings, games, and other important cultural explorations that will encourage students to be actively engaged with the language, culture, history.  They can proudly say Soy International! – I’m international.


This will be a beginner’s class and no previous experience/exposure to Spanish is necessary to participate in this course. However, each student should have the ability to work as a collaborative group member in class at a brisk, high school pace and independently at home to complete weekly assignments.
