I have experience with languages and grammar, and I know that everyone learn in a different way, for some people is easier than for others. The challenge is to find what is easier for you, and help you to get your goals learning a new language.

About Isabel

I love teaching, but I hate boring classes, so I always try to do different things to get the goal, which is learning. I also try to keep focus in what the student wants with class, be able to communicate, or improve grammar, writting, everyone is different, learn different and also want different

Online Spanish Teacher

I have been teaching Spanish lessons to all kind of students since I came to the United States seven years ago. I was born in Estella (Spain), an hour away from San Millán de la Cogolla, where the first written words in Spanish have been found, so my Spanish is as authentic as it gets. I can teach emphasizing grammar, pronunciation or conversation, and always adapting my teaching style to students' necessities as I was taught during my psycho-pedagogy classes at Universidad de Navarra.

My lessons are fun and straight to the point. You will never run out of materials to learn, which will always be tailored to your needs. Time is of the essence and I carefully select the topics based on your weaknesses so that your improvement is fast and steady. If you have specific requests, like preparing for a test, homework or learning a tune, I develop a plan with you so that you can achieve your goals. Learning is a process that many compare to a trip, so let's meet and embark in this travel ...

Learning Spanish in San Francisco

By Sonia G. - San Francisco Spanish teacher

If you're interested in taking Spanish lessons in San Francisco, you're in one of the most fun and exhilarating places to learn and practice in the country. There is a very strong Latino community here that provides a stimulating and authentic Spanish immersion atmosphere, and there are many neighborhoods, organizations, restaurants, and cafes you can visit. I've selected a few of my favorite spots from San Francisco’s Spanish and Latino epicenter, The Mission District.

The Mission is the quintessential Spanish-speaking neighborhood in the city. You will feel like you’ve been transported to Latin America. This is the perfect setting for Spanish students to bring out their Spanish skills, no matter how rusty or unpolished. Most Spanish speakers will welcome your efforts with friendliness and encouragement.

Arts and Culture:

Mission Cultural Center for Latino Arts (http://missionculturalcenter.org/) MCCLA is the largest and one of the most active Latino organizations in the city and in the whole United States. MCCLA’S main objectives are “to present the best representative sample of contemporary and ancient artistic traditions of Latin America and to develop in the community a high degree of sensitivity and understanding of Latin American culture.” They sponsor several festivals, carnivals, and performances and also offer a wide variety of classes.

PODER - People Organizing to Demand Environmental & Economic Rights (http://www.podersf.org/) This organization sponsors events, talks, and art shows in Spanish to promote environmental awareness in the San Francisco Latino community and beyond.

Accion Latina (http://accionlatina.org/) This non-profit’s mission is “to promote cultural arts, community media, and civic engagement as a way of building healthy and empowered Latino communities.” If you are interested in Spanish music, visual arts, or literature, you’ll find a lot of inspiration at this colorful organization.

Tours:

Calle 24 Walking Tour (http://www.sfheritage.org/Calle24_Booklet.pdf) Spanning 12 city blocks, 24th Street has served as the center of Latino activism, arts, commerce, and culture in San Francisco since the 1940s. I recommend downloading this self-walking tour in Spanish and visiting the most iconic Spanish and Latino spots in the city.

Restaurants and Cafes:

There are so many amazing Latino and Spanish restaurants in the city where you can practice your Spanish skills. Below are a few of my favorites. Don’t be afraid to be adventurous when you order. And always ask for the specials and the chef’s favorites -- in Spanish, of course!

Lolo (974 Valencia St, San Francisco, CA 94110) This is a fun little spot in the Mission with amazing cocktails, ceviche, and tacos. It has a great atmosphere and beautiful art. Call for reservations as it gets crowded fast.

Lolinda and El Techo de Lolinda (2518 Mission St, San Francisco, CA 94110)< Lolinda is a fancy Argentinian restaurant with amazing meats and tapas. If you want a more festive atmosphere, head up the stairs to its sister restaurant. El Techo de Lolinda is a rooftop garden with one of the best views of the city. They offer succulent tapas, sangria, fun cocktails, and more!

Gracias Madre (2211 Mission St, San Francisco, CA 94110) This is a beautiful vegan Mexican restaurant. Their food is mostly organic and super fresh. You won’t miss the meat or cheese at all. Get their refreshing agua fresca and enjoy their creamy guacamole.

El Farolito (2779 Mission St, San Francisco, CA 94110) If you want to bite into one of the best tacos or burritos in San Francisco, head to this authentic Mexican taqueria in the heart of the Mission. The lines are usually out the door, but don’t worry, it goes fast, and the wait is so worth it!

Check out some of these suggestions and also try to make discoveries of your own. Get lost in the colorful streets of San Francisco and don’t be shy. As you're taking Spanish lessons in San Francisco, practicing your conversation and listening skills with locals will improve your Spanish tremendously. You’ll have so much fun that you’ll forget that you are learning!
