My son is a BEGINNER beginner. Rodrigo is a very nice guy and seems to know his stuff very well. I would give him 5 stars but I don't think he realized that my son needed the basic, basic 1st lesson (i.e. how to hold the instrument). We've only attended one session so this is fully based on that one lesson. I'm sure he'll adjust his teaching from here on out.

Mr. Rodrigo is a professional, respectful and super patient instructor. I could not made a better choice. I am looking forward to my next class @

Puedes hablar español? I grew up in Los Angeles, so I had it around me at all times. I finally was able to properly learn it when I moved to Quito, Ecuador, using my past knowledge of French to learn it on the go. I then traveled all around South America, and people tell me I have a pretty funky accent, which I love.

"Excellent tutor, teacher, friend! She is honest, patient and nonjudgmental. Her experience is obvious because she takes care to only speak with Spanish that you know and is very attuned to non-verbal cues. Her knowledge of Spanish grammar and cultural nuances is great not just because he speaks perfectly but she can articulate her knowledge well.

She is genuine in character and her goal is to help you learn Spanish at your pace. I have learned a great deal in the 9 months that I've been working with her and can't imagine that I would have gotten here as quickly with any other teacher."

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!
