MY EXPERTISE IN SPANISH CONVERSATION SKILLS: One element that is as important as grammar, vocabulary, and extensive practice is ‘Confidence’. And this is practiced, and therefore increased in my courses, just as with the other language skills.
a) Confidence: We make it a goal from your very first class and we start working on it as soon as possible with our lessons. The following is a description of these process: After the student and teacher have established a good rapport in a course (from one to several lessons), the teacher will assess and explore the level of knowledge and skills of the student, at the same time, confidence will be established between the student and teacher, which in turn builds his/her confidence in the language and that all skills are developing.
b) Fluency: Beginners get it little by little through a good amount of language learning, in the form of strong pronunciation, vocabulary, grammar and study strategies at first. Then including Confidence-oriented activities soon after, which amounts to Fluency.
c) All the grammar: And all the other niceties of the language that by this point should really easy to achieve if we work as a team.
By applying this principles even absolute beginners are able to communicate at the most basic levels, including phrases and interactions with native speakers within a couple of months.
All my students get specific feedback on confidence soon after starting their course, this addresses the specific areas of improvement in these two very important areas: Spanish Structure Knowledge and Conversation.
At advanced levels, these strategies can be practiced on a regular basis and included in your lessons from day 1, this will have you speaking in months… – Here is how it works:
We recommend at least one 1.5 hour lesson weekly at a regular pace, or maybe 1 hour twice a week for lessons in person. Or at ;eat 1 hr. weekly online.
My objective is having my students learn the basics of conversation, the general principles of the language and reading/writing. Students often see results in a 4 month period (20 hrs) at a regular pace or 3 months at an accelerated pace. At either pace, I instill confidence in the students to start speaking the language after 5-6, this is generally achieved.
And as we promised there is a big discount and more flexibility than most schools, so mention your specific needs when contacting us or starting your courses. — Muchas gracias !!
