Spanish Resources in San Jose
By Joan B., Spanish Teacher in San Jose
Are you interested in taking Spanish lessons in San Jose? San Jose is a city filled with opportunities for Spanish immersion. With a high percentage of Spanish speakers, the city offers many cultural, linguistic, and educational treats for those interested in learning the Spanish language. As a retired Spanish teacher and a current Spanish tutor, I delight in the Hispanic treasures of San Jose.
One of the ways you might start to connect with other Spanish speakers, both native and non-native, is through Meetup groups. Joining groups such as the Bay Area International Spanish Speakers and the South Bay Spanish Conversation Group is a great way to practice what you're learning in your lessons and make new Spanish-speaking friends.
The East Side of San Jose is definitely an area to check out, as it has a Hispanic focus, with Hispanic residents, restaurants, and shops. One of the many places you can visit includes the Tamale Factory, where you can get a variety of tamales and atole, a traditional drink from Mexico. While there isn't room to eat there, it's definitely worth a stop for the piping hot tamales with generous fillings. The East Side is also jam-packed with many Latin American and Mexican grocery stores, where you can stock up on staples for cooking.
Another great resource for Spanish learners in San Jose is the two bilingual newspapers. La Oferta, offered entirely online at www.laoferta.com, showcases a variety of news in English and Spanish. El Observador, available at www.news.el-observador, also covers a wide variety of topics and also offers giveaways. These newspapers are a great way to stay connected to local happenings and also expand your vocabulary base.
The Biblioteca Lantinoamericana, a branch of the San Jose public library, is another wonderful resource. There is a wide selection of literature and other media in Spanish, as well as a variety of programs that change monthly. You can pick up a calendar of events in person or visit http://www.sjpl.org/biblioteca to see the current events. The Biblioteca is an ideal place to explore the Spanish language in greater breadth both for children and adults.
Once you've checked out some books, why not also visit De La Rosa Latin American Imports? This shop is packed full of folkloric costumes, shoes and Day of the Dead items. Learning to dance a Mexican folk dance or participating in a Day of the Dead celebration are unique ways of integrating your Spanish language knowledge with cultural experiences. So sign up and then make your way to De La Rosa.
With these resources, you will be able to enjoy San Jose in all its cultural splendor. By more deeply exploring the Hispanic cultures that make up San Jose, you will create new friendships, strengthen your language abilities and develop an appreciation for the cultures where Spanish is spoken. So what are you waiting for? Sign up for Spanish lesson in San Jose today!

When we started I thought that some people just can't sing and that I was one of those people. Not only did I not know how to sing, I had no idea how to *learn* to sing. Dan was super patient and I felt like he figured how I needed to learn just as much as what I needed to learn.
Singing is a life long journey, and I still have a long way to go, but the difference in my confidence and ability since working with Dan is like night and day. I recommend Dan highly.

I typically use the Plazas textbooks, and have the following tools available for your lessons: worksheets, textbooks, and more. I love working with students of all experience levels and espero contar con su presencia!
Immersive, intensive and interactive approach to Romance languages through folk music and acting and interacting in group set up or one to one.
I believe in learning while laughing and comparing to a better and faster understanding.
We can focus in English and Spanish or included other Romance languages like French, Italian and Portuguese or even all of them at the same time.
All these languages have a very similar root, just need to learn the different approach and in few sessions you will have an understanding of the whole Romance world.
Allowing and speeding the learning and the fluidity of your conversation exponentially.
I live to compare and enrich my culture and share the knowledge with the world.
Beside comparing Romance languages to one another for better understanding and deeper learning we will be comparing between the different kind of Spanish on the globe.
So we will not only learn Castilian but a wider ranger of South American expression and idioms so we can be fully understood where ever we go!
