Jimmy
Perfectly tailored Spanish lessons for Beginners-Intermediate (A1-B2)
*For syllabus, of course, check below Language is an art and culture. This is one of the biggest realizations I have made during my journey to become a polyglot (Until now I'm improving my Dutch, and I know Spanish, English, French, and Arabic). Therefore, I like to share that passion I have through teaching Spanish the most, as it is one of the most beautiful languages I know. I prepared a fun and in-depth course specifically tailored for beginner/intermediate Spanish learners. This course tackles grammatical rules (starting with the present), pronunciations, and differences between Spain and Latin America. Moreover, I also like to teach some interesting facts about numerous Spanish-speaking countries, since as I said, language is culture too. A small overview of my course: My course is divided into 3 phases (Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced). Kindly note that throughout these courses, always new vocabulary will be taught. Beginner: Greetings, the personal pronouns, the present form, reflexive verbs, numbers from 1 till 1,000, the past simple, imperfect, present perfect, and their different usage. Regular verbs and the three verb forms, important irregular verbs, different usage of some verbs (ser/estar), (traer, llevar) Casual conversations in different scenarios (to present oneself, to ask for directions...) Intermediate: Elaboration on adjectives, adverbs, demonstrative pronouns, personal pronouns, numbers from 1,000+. In-depth into verb conjugations: present perfect, past perfect, conditional. Conjugation in conditional statements. Introduction to the subjunctive that indicates uncertainty, and the imperative that indicates an order. Casual conversations in daily life Advanced: Here, practice will make perfect. Overview of everything learned, with elaboration on tougher verb tenses, such as the present perfect and past perfect in the subjunctive form. More detailed vocabulary.

Spanish conversation classes for all ages
I am a Spanish student of Law and Political Science. This year I am coming to Leuven as an Erasmus student to continue my undergraduate studies. I have very good preparation in English and French, as well as in Spanish, which is my mother tongue. I have started this course to give conversation classes in Spanish to people of all ages and levels, at an affordable price. My classes can serve as school reinforcement and also as preparation for official exams. I adapt to the profile of each student. In addition, I can teach both at the student's home and online. Do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions about prices, duration, etc.

Even though I am a native Spanish speaker, I have experience teaching other languages in different parts of the world, mostly to highschoolers seeking help with their assignments. Besides that, I also gave tutoring to people who were just starting to learn a new language. I provide a comfort zone where the student can think and learn without any preassure. Please feel free to ask any questions, I would be more than happy to answer them.
