I want to demonstrate magic of learning to communicate in another language. Using the student’s textbook, my goal is to demonstrate and explain the nuances of the language, so that the students can learn to use the language themselves.

I took away a whole array of new strategies and techniques to help preserve my voice and to increase my range. What a surprise- I had no idea I could sing so high!! Kathleen is a wonderful teacher and a really super lady. I'll be back for more lessons in the fall.
Nadia N.
My daughter is really enjoying her voice lessons. Kathleen is a talented, caring teacher and knows how to make the process effective and fun for my daughter. My daughter loves being able to choose the songs she wants to learn, and this collaborative process keeps her quite interested and inspired.

Excellent Voice Teacher

Mrs. B is a wonderful and dedicated teacher who focuses diligently during class sessions. She thoroughly explains terms and technique and is friendly and sociable. Her extensive knowledge of languages comes extremely useful in Italian arias and other folk songs as to explain the meanings of words and to convey motion. Her classes are enjoyable and fun, while still being comprehensively academic.

Online Spanish Teacher

I have been teaching Spanish since 1973, when I was 20 years old.
I did it for 10 years long (and still do) and I used so many methods that I finally came up with my own method to teach students of any age, any background and any motivation to learn a system that efficient, that will have you speak Spanish, and have a normal conversation from lesson one! I focus on verbs and practical conversation but no nonsense stories most books have. Books are only optional! And I am available also in between lessons and for as long as you need me in your lifetime with no retainer fees! The vocabulary is Latin American real life as you see it in the news! And best of all, I speak Spanish since I was 7 years old, when I used to live in Uruguay! I speak and teach 7 languages, soI know what is is to learn a foreign language and I know how to make it easier for you!

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!
