We presented him with a little challenge to learn a song by Christmas for the pageant. No problem and I think we can was his response.

I hold a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish Language with first-class honors from the University of the West Indies. What sets me apart from the crowd is my professional training in Castellano; Standard Spanish. I am a lover of all things Spanish. I incorporate the whole culture into my classes for a more REAL and LIVE experience. I enjoy speaking the Spanish language. However, the one thing that I enjoy just as much as speaking it, is sharing this passion for Hispanic language and culture with others. This passion makes me a very fun and captivating teacher, which is essential when introducing something as potentially daunting as a new language. This passion for the Spanish language and culture consumed me, to the point of engaging in studies for 10 years; seven years of high school, two years pre-college, and an additional three years at the university level. I have resided in a majority Spanish- speaking city for the past 5 years. I regularly engage with a broad circle of Latin ...

Nicest Teacher I Have Met Ever!
Russ H.
Sebastian is very understanding of the varying needs of students of different ages and experience/education levels, and adapts the speed and style of his teaching to meet the individual needs of his students to ensure they have a clear understanding of the material each session. Knowing the importance of comprehending grammar and structure, he lays a solid foundation upon which to build a successful understanding and comprehension of the proper use of the language. I would highly recommend Sebastian to anyone looking to learn Spanish the "right" way.

Hi, I'm Alrick!
I have a PhD in literature/ English and am a college professor in Chicago with more than 20 years of teaching experience. As a tutor, I help students of all levels - from elementary school to high school to college in the following areas:

1) writing, reading
2) Spanish at all levels
3) U.S. history
4) college prep (the SAT and ACT in the English, Reading, Writing & Language, and Essay sections)

About me:

I've helped thousands of students to understand their subject. In the spirit of complete honesty, I don't take on all students who contact me. I first speak with them (or with a parent, if the student is minor) in order to be as confident as possible that I'm able to offer them the highest quality help possible. If I sense I'm not the best person to help them, I'll say so. I don't want to risk my reputation, and I certainly don't want them to receive anything less than the best help available. In those cases I'll happily recommend fellow TakeLessons tutors. As my ...

"I am a 62 year old person who had previously studied Spanish using Rosetta Stone and Duolingo. I started taking lessons with Georgina several years ago to provide a regular opportunity to engage in Spanish conversation. Our lessons have been free-flowing and she introduced me to a number of books written in Spanish which were not only helpful in further developing my knowledge of Spanish but were culturally enlightening as well. Georgina is easy to engage, a delightful person to know and an excellent instructor."

¡Aprende Espanol Ahora! (Learn Spanish Now!)

by Spanish tutor Naomi K. (https://takelessons.com/profile/naomi-k3)

I’m Naomi, and I teach Spanish lessons in Washington DC. There are few personal rewards in life greater than the ability to speak a foreign language. There are SO MANY benefits! For example:
· It is an incredible personal confidence-builder · It’s a great way to begin thinking “outside of the box” -- you gain a new perspective about people and the world in general. · It allows you to extend your network of acquaintances to many other cultures -- you’ll have a more diverse group of friends. · It is a great exercise tool for the brain -- research shows that working the brain in this way has been known to delay the onset of Alzheimer’s and other mental diseases. · It allows you to communicate and connect wit

...

h others on their level. · It facilitates worldwide communication on so many levels (e.g. relationships, helps those in the legal world, enhances educational processes in schools, facilitates patient care in hospitals, etc.).

I began studying the language years ago while attending Catholic Schools. I just thought it was an easy elective back then, but as I got into college it gained more importance as the Latino population in the U.S. began to grow rapidly (early ‘80s). Then I went to college, and I won an academic scholarship to study Spanish in Mexico (and to live with a host family for five months during that time). This was one of the greatest learning experiences of my life! I was thrust into an unfamiliar culture to learn, although I did know the language pretty well by the time I got there. While there, I not only learned advanced Spanish, but I learned a LOT about the Latino/Mexican culture as well.

After college, I left my home state of Ohio to be where I knew I’d use the language more frequently: in the Washington DC metropolitan area. I’ve been teaching Spanish lessons in Washington DC for many years, outside of my full-time jobs. Tutoring others helps me to stay immersed! And Washington DC is definitely a great place to be immersed in the Spanish language.

Outside of your lessons, the media and the DC social life are all good sources for learning Spanish (or any language)! Consider doing the following to keep yourself immersed in the language. Many of these are FREE!:

· Turn on the radio! Many radio stations located near or in DC offer programming and music that facilitates learning the language and helps with listening skills. Here are a few I like: o WACA 1540 AM (Wheaton) – Spanish Contemporary Music and Programming o WAFY 103.1 FM (Middletown) – Contemporary Hit Radio o WBQH 1050 AM (Silver Spring) – Regional Mexican o WERQ 92.3 FM (Baltimore) – Mainstream Urban

· Turn on the TV! One in the same, many television stations offer programming that facilitates learning the language, including telenovelas (soap operas), which can be really fun to watch! Here you get visuals too, to help with overall language comprehension. Here are a few to check out: o WZDC - TeleMundo (check your service provider for actual channel numbers) o WMDO – Telefutura (UniMás) o Univision

· Go out to eat! There are a LOT of Hispanic restaurants to enjoy in the DC area, and many have the original cuisine from their country. Check these out for good Hispanic food and culture: o Great Cuban food at Banana Café on Capitol Hill o Delicious Tex-Mex food at Lauriol Plaza in Dupont Circle o Savory Peruvian roasted chicken at El Pollo Rico in Arlington, VA o Spicy Salvadorean food at Ercilia’s Restaurant in Mount Pleasant DC o Mouth-watering grilled Mexican food at Qdoba Restaurant in Hyattsville, MD

· Pick up a book, newspaper, or magazine! Reading books and periodicals in Spanish can help build your vocabulary and can help you learn about the Latino culture, country by country. These are often available for free at local businesses, restaurants, libraries, etc.: o El Tiempo Latino (Noticias de Washington DC - newspaper) o El Pregonero (newspaper) o Washington Hispanic (newspaper) o Latina (magazine)

· Go to church! Many churches in the Washington, DC area, such as St. Matthew Cathedral, have masses in Spanish. The cathedral has a 1pm mass each Sunday solely in Spanish..

There is NO reason to delay learning Spanish! There are so many resources available to anyone who wants to begin the journey of learning Spanish in Washington DC. I can personally testify that this process of learning the language (and now instructing) over the years has been so rewarding for me, AND it continues! (There’s always more to learn!)
