Depending on the student's need, you can expect a more customized work agenda in order to assist the student to reach the goal. We work together during the tutoring time and the student can expect to get some "homework" to maintain the lesson fresh. (Unless the student is getting help with an already existing class, then we follow the guideline of the class as our path to success)

Cindy's extensive knowledge of Spanish was clear from the start. English is her second language but my children couldn't tell. She has an excellent way of breaking down Spanish for children and adults (I listened in and learned a couple of phrases).

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!
