Señora Bridget is the best Spanish teacher I could ask for! She really helps guide me in the right direction and is very informative and helpful! It’s especially important to me that she took it upon herself to learn Spanish at one point as well. It reminds me that I can do it too!

¡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 with 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!)
