Learn the Spanish Language: A comprehensive course for English speakers

I am an English native speaker that learned Spanish within six months. I have been living in Mexico for the past four years where I now teach Spanish to foreigners. My strength as a teacher is my ability to recognize and help overcome common difficulties in pronunciation and expression. Of course, I will share to you some of the most important lessons I learned through my learning experience.

The class method involves learning new vocabulary through short but interesting reading texts, grammar through numerous examples and speech through simple yet fun activities.

conversation course in Spanish - learn Central American culture
Hello! Returning from two years in Central America, where I worked as a civil engineer in Nicaragua, I propose moments of discussion for you who wish to practice and untie your language! I wish that my students feel at ease with Spanish, that the barriers of shyness fall. Me too, 3 years ago I did not speak a word of Spanish, and yet today I am almost bilingual and have even made the ambitious choice to pass my Master in Development Policies in Spanish, which I managed with success. But for that, I had to dare, to practice, to speak, to deceive myself, to study, to re-deceive myself ... It is by making mistakes that one improves and I wish, in addition to supporting my students in their learning, they are no longer afraid to make mistakes and (re) take a liking to speak Spanish. Possibility of giving classes in French, English or Brazilian Portuguese. Accustomed to give my lessons by skype, I am very flexible at the horraires level.

Learn Spanish effectively! Customized courses
Established in Geneva since 2011, I am a teacher of Spanish mother tongue, who also speaks English and Portuguese. The content of my classes is focused on the needs of learners. The language is transmitted through practical examples with active participation of the learners in order to assimilate in a global way the words, the grammatical or phonetic rules according to their uses and in a usual context, ranging from an informal language to a form written complex. Classes are built around oral communication to enhance the interactivity of learners. I adapt my classes, be they of support or improvement or other, to the needs of the students, thus to reach their objectives in terms of comprehension of oral / oral production, and comprehension and written production. I have several years of experience in teaching, and a training in pedagogy, as well as a master's degree in translation and interpretation and in French literature (Lettres Modernes). Do not hesitate to contact me for additional information or any other question, I will be happy to answer you. Regards, Pilar

And this autumn, I went back to Ecuador and I discovered Peru, where I could practice this language that I love so much.

Italian and Spanish classes for adults and children
Language is the key to the world. I have always been fascinating by languages. Since young I have been studying Romance languages and their philology. I graduated myself from Rome University with a bachelor degree in Linguistics, analyzing the evolution of the Italian language over the decades. As a linguist, I have an excellent knowledge of Italian and Spanish language and culture and, I can teach at all levels from children to adults. I am sensitive to the learners' needs and to create the perfect lesson ensuring a dynamic and comfortable atmosphere.
