Learning Spanish in Miami

By Erin A. - Miami Spanish tutor (https://takelessons.com/profile/erin-a8)

If you're interested in taking Spanish lessons in Miami, FL, you're in one of the most fun, lively, and hands-on places to learn and practice in the country. The city is comprised of 70% people of Hispanic origin, with almost 35% being of Cuban origin. There are more people of Latin descent than there are non-Hispanic. I love this about Miami and that is the reason I moved here. I didn't want to hear any English and wanted to practice my Spanish. It worked out great because anywhere you go you can hear people speaking Spanish!

You’ll be exposed to the Spanish language anywhere you go in Miami. That is the beauty of this city and a benefit if you want to learn the language. However, to have an even fuller cultural experience, I’ll give you some suggestions for key places as well as one key event that you should see and attend. This will give you valuable insight into the Spanish culture here in Miami.

The main place you need to visit is called Little Havana (named after the capital of Cuba). It stretches for several miles and is famous for being the cultural and political capital for Cuban-Americans. This humble but lively neighborhood is a mixture of culture and traditional customs, and is packed with art galleries, unique shops, restaurants, and bars. It is five minutes west of downtown Miami and 15 minutes from South Beach.

As you walk along the streets, you will feel as if you have been transported into a Spanish-speaking country. You will hear the clattering of dominoes at Maximo Gomez Park, located at Southwest 8th Street and 15th Avenue. This is a famous spot where what they call “Cuban old timers" gather to play each day. You will also see a lot of open-air coffee counters, where people stand at the window and drink their "cuban coffee," also known as a colada or cortadito. The oldest is Los Pinarenos Fruteria. If you have never had a cafe cubano, you should try one, as you will have enough energy for a week from this one little coffee shot.

Cubans are also famous for their cigars, and no trip to Little Havana would be complete without a trip to the Cuba Tobacco Cigar Co., one of the oldest cigar stores and lounges in Miami. You can watch cigars being rolled by hand here.

If you are a fan of Latin cinema then I recommend checking out Little Havana Paseo de las Estrellas (Walk of the Stars), which is similar to the Hollywood Walk of the Stars, but commemorating Latin American actors, writers, artists, and musicians.

To remember your trip and bring back some of this culture with you, do not forget to pick up a souvenir from Little Havana To Go, a popular souvenir store.

One of the must-attend events in Miami is Carnaval Miami. This is the biggest Hispanic carnival in the United States, and a must for Hispanic culture lovers. It is a 10-day celebration that encompasses typical Hispanic food, concerts, sports, culinary competitions, a live Jazz festival, art, and dancing. It really is something to see. You might feel a tad overwhelmed as you are walking the streets during the festivities because there are so many people there, but try to enjoy yourself, grab a partner, and do some salsa dancing in the streets! For more information visit http://carnavalmiami.com

Last but certainly not least is the Versailles Restaurant, or Versailles, as locals call it. It is the world's most famous Cuban restaurant and is located at 3555 SW 8th Street Miami, FL 33135. It has been in business for more than four decades and is a gathering place and unofficial town square for Miami’s Cuban exiles. My recommendation is to order the Arroz con Pollo (chicken with yellow rice). It is delicious and you won't be disappointed. For more information visit http://versaillescuban.com

After you have had a chance to visit these places, you should be revved up to start taking Spanish lessons in Miami. Good luck!

Informative and patient classes centered around students needs and requirements.

About Rene
Knowing at the age of 5 that music was my life, by being brought up surrounded by praise music and gospel, my early exposure to music helped me to find every Instrument and style just my thing! I wanted to play everything and learn all aspects of music. I started with singing in the children's choir and then developed into piano and music theory. At the age of 12 I began to learn classical guitar, and at 15 took on various styles like Flamenco, Jazz and Rock. I graduated from High School having played in the school band achieving recognition In national Institutions Like IAJE (International Association for Jazz Education) and state band finals. I was also composing from a very early age, and at 18 released my first album (self-titled) which can still be heard and purchased today through various music outlets, since i have released over 15
albums with various ensembles and bands. In college I already knew from my previous experience that I wanted to teach and pass on the joy that music brought to my life. I studied Music Theory and Jazz and finished my degree in Music Education. I have been teaching all in all for about 14 yrs. And I have enjoyed every minute I have spent with my students learning as much from them, as them from me. I am looking forward to meeting new and eager students who really want to bring their inner music out to share with the rest of us music aficionados! and develop their skills to the peak of their abilities.

*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching method ranges depending on the student. I believe in my experience that everyone learns differently, therefore everyone develops at their own pace. I try to find key strengths in each student and expose this to their advantage, using their abilities to further develop their skills, this method has shown the most promising results and students usually find themselves playing and performing just a couple of months after their first lessons. Part of my method involves a lot of performance and recital opportunities to help break any fears and inhibitions a student may bring with them. Music is about sharing, so an early exposure to this method helps to strengthen and stabilize a core acceptance of a students style and path, giving them and those close to them a very clear picture of their development and achievements.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Has all instruments at both his home and college studio

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide lesson material, song charts and a progression scale. I require student to have an Instrument and recommended technique literature.

*** Specialties ***
My classical training began in High School with Influences in Segovia, and Romero I studied classical for 4 yrs. and trained in Jazz and Improvisation with performances In Big Band and group ensemble. Also sang and played in the school gospel choir.

****Personal Statement*****

If you needed a reason

There is no question that music touches us instantly and activates images, emotions and memories that linger with us throughout our lives. As a casual listener or an obsessive music elitist, there are times in our lives when we get blown away by a sound so unique our entire body vibrates and resonates with the touch of something out of this world. I can honestly say when this happens to me I feel as close to a spiritual connection than anything I have experienced otherwise. I believe it is these exact events that have triggered my need to be completely involved in the making, performing and consuming of music. The creative process, to me, is the single obvious reason we exist in this world. We create and share, learn and interpret, build on previous ideas and inspire others to perfect upon this process. It is no doubt a very humbling experience to realize you are part of it all. During this process you come to realize how important you are as an Individual, how there is no other vessel like you in this world, nor has there ever been or ever will. You are here now and your voice, your talent, your gift is an instrument to the great choir of the human spirit. No one but you can relate this, a reason to be, to create, to give.

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.

One thing I love about teaching is bringing the arts into the process of learning. We may sing in the language and even paint to help learn. I've taught younger than Kindergarten all the way to adults, so feel comfortable that you'll grow in your conversational skills, as well as, beginner vocabulary. Let me highlight that I'm passionate about "phonetics," which is the study and classification of speech sounds. In other words, you are going to learn how to sound like a native speaker when you take my class.

About Loren
I'm an artist, musician, and language aficionada. I have a Bachelor's Degree from the University of Georgia, graduating with honors as a Magna Cum Laude in Spanish and French Linguistics. I am fluent in both languages. One thing I love about teaching is bringing the arts into the process of learning. We may sing in the language and even paint to help learn. I've taught younger than Kindergarten all the way to adults, so feel comfortable that you'll grow in your conversational skills, as well as, beginner vocabulary. Let me highlight that I'm passionate about "phonetics," which is the study and classification of speech sounds. In other words, you are going to learn how to sound like a native speaker when you take my class.

Why do I like to bring art and music into the learning journey? Let me tell you one of the biggest secrets I've dis
covered. Art and music can allow you to make a joyful memory, which takes the fleeting moment into the longterm part of your brain, causing you to remember more and put it into what you call "muscle memory" all because you're happy!

Speaking of the arts, I play guitar, ukulele, charango, piano, and I sing! I've been a musician since 2000, and I've successfully turned a hobby into something my husband and I have been doing full time for several years. For beginners, something that works best is taking a song that you LOVE and turning it into your anthem on the instrument of your choice. So pick your song and message me!

Last but not least, I'm a painter. Painting is my favorite part of any day. About my childhood, I can candidly say I had the best stepmom. She would let me take her enormous canvases, oil paints, and brushes and just let me at it. Of course at first they were all of my hand prints and rainbows, but she got me curious, and eventually we started going to museums. I've seen Vangogh, Monet, Divinci, Picasso, and many more as they toured through our city. I began to study their techniques and grow my gift. My "Mama Sue" gifted me a hunger for creativity and excellence, and I can't thank her enough. Painting with me, you will grow in your technique, skill, and confidence, and pick up a little artist history along the way.

I'm looking forward to meeting you and helping you accomplish your dreams!
