I first heard Spanish from my dad who's Colombian, so my lessons focus on communication via dynamic task-based activities! First you discover grammar functions & the meaning of vocab through simple comprehension activities. Then we practice these new items through conversation questions or communication activities that simulate real-life tasks like ordering food, asking for directions, or describing a person. This creates a fun atmosphere for learning and gives students ample opportunities to speak! I also like to use multimedia like videos, pictures and powerpoints to make lessons more interactive, especially online lessons! For beginners, I use the book Spanish Demystified or Easy Spanish Step by Step as a learning resource and to provide grammar homework.

Besides speaking, my lessons also cover the other aspects of a language: Reading, writing and listening comprehension. I target those skills with activities such as short readings & writing assignments for homework, and themed ...

About Christy

I was exposed to Spanish throughout my childhood from my dad who is from Colombia, and from my great Spanish teachers. After minoring in it at college, I perfected my fluency from living in Spain for 2 years and studying it for 20 years! My adventures with the language led me to pursue an MA in Spa

I need some patience for sure because I'm SO self critical I can block my own progress. Christy is great, patient and so far, is bringing my conversational spanish out of its shell.

I appreciate her willingness to accommodate me and my schedule and, although I have only had 1 lesson so far, can feel that I am already growing in knowledge and confidence. I really like that she gives me assignments I can work on between lessons so that I can make the most of my lesson time with her.

Hola! My name is Sarah.

This is why I am not your typical Spanish Teacher: Most of you all are either taking Spanish in school or took Spanish in school. I was one of those High School Spanish teachers that taught 125 students a day. I felt helpless and frustrated. They made me teach only grammar, vocabulary and culture. No conversational skills at all. Yes, grammar and vocabulary are very important in learning a language, but so is speaking. After a while, I left the public school system and began teaching on my own. Now, I teach each and every student how to speak Spanish fluently. You all have your reasons for taking Spanish classes: To speak Spanish for work, speak Spanish for fun and travel, speak and understand Spanish to pass your school classes or perhaps you have younger children and you know that this is the best age to learn a new language. Every single one of my students is unique and different, and that is how I approach my lessons each week. We also talk a ...

Spanish Lessons in Los Angeles: Immersing Yourself en la Cultura Latina

By LeAnna S. – Los Angeles Spanish Teacher

So, are you are thinking about taking Spanish lessons in Los Angeles but don’t quite know where to start? One of the best ways to learn and practice the language is to immerse yourself in the culture. I can’t see how anyone living in Los Angeles can avoid coming into contact with the Latino community. Los Angeles is blessed with such a rich diversity of Spanish speakers from all over the world, giving the city a unique feel with great food, theatre, museums and more. The opportunities to utilize your Spanish in Los Angeles are endless.

Where do I go, besides my Tia Martha’s house to have pan dulce and talk “chisme”, when I’m seeking out Spanish speakers?

Check out some of my favorite places to connect con la cultura latina:

...
  1. La Plaza Olvera http://www.calleolvera.com/events/ Hands down, one of my favorite places to go in LA is Plaza Olvera, also know as Olvera Street, Calle Olvera, and Placita Olvera. Snuggled between Alameda, Main, Cesar Chavez and the 101 freeway, it is a center of LA’s Mexican American history and culture. Olvera Street is a Mexican marketplace and historical site that has merchants, artisans, restaurants, museums and a plaza for entertainment, performances and ceremonies. They constantly have events for Los Tres Reyes, Cinco de Mayo, and Día de los Muertos. It is a great location to learn about the beginnings of the city of LA, the role that Latinos played in its creation, and of course, to practice your Spanish while checking out the prices of Mexican crafts and listening to live Mariachi music.

  2. Cultural Museums Two museums I recommend are the Plaza Olvera Museum http://www.olvera-street.com/ and La Plaza de Cultura y Artes http://www.lapca.org/ (both conveniently at Plaza Olvera). I enjoy going to these museums because they have a mix of historic Latino/Chicano art and local artwork and because I can get my Latino Art, History and Spanish fix in one visit! One permanent exhibition at Olvera Street Museum has an original outside moral called “La América Tropical” by David Alfaro Siqueiros (one of Diego Rivera’s contemporaries) that is amazing to see. Many of these museums have literature that is bilingual and includes audio narration in Spanish so you can practice your auditory, reading, and comprehension skills! La Plaza has film screenings that are either in Spanish or with subtitles and pertain to the issues in the Latino community. It is a great way to expose yourself to new information while absorbing the language.

  3. Local Restaurants We learn best when language is used in context. Teaching Spanish to elementary school kids, I often did field trips to local restaurants and bakeries and had my kids order their food in Spanish. People are happy to take your order in their native language, and when you are hungry, you’ll be sure to communicate. There are so many great places to get yummy, authentic food but some of my favorite restaurants/food joints have to be: - Sabor Colombiano at 847 S Union Ave, Downtown LA (they have live music on some nights) -Leo’s Taco Truck at the corner of Venice Blvd and La Brea (some of the best tacos ever) -AND my favorite, La Usuluteca at 4014 W Washington Blvd in the Mid City district with some of the best El Salvadoran pupusas, pan dulce and tamales! What better way to use what you’re learning from your Spanish lessons in Los Angeles than by practical application? Spanish plus some delicious food sounds like a win-win to me.

  4. Live Theatre and Performance There is nothing like watching live performance in Spanish, especially when you hear dialogue and get to see human expression. An incredible place for Latino Theatre in Los Angeles, as well as for other ethnicities, is the Los Angeles Theatre Center, located in downtown LA on Spring St and 5th. LATC supports local playwrights, actors and directors by producing new works that address current topics for the greater Latino community. They have a variety of shows as well as theatre and film festivals. They often have plays that are in Spanish or bilingual, so feel free to go to their website, http://thelatc.org/ or call (213) 489-0994 for more information. I really love the work they do and I appreciate finding quality theatre done in Spanish. ¡Viva el teatro!

By now, I think that you are ready to venture out in the heart of Los Angeles and talk up a storm! My favorite places to go are only a small sliver of the taste of Latino culture here in LA. Language is symbiotic with culture and your appreciation can only improve your Spanish skills. So… enjoy exploring la ciudad de Los Angeles and immersing yourself in la cultura latina!
