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.

Janet is a beautiful person inside and out. Janet was referred to me by a friend. I needed to start learning Spanish because I was going overseas to Columbia for 1 year. Janet is an extremely patient person. My primary goal was to learn conversational Spanish and to learn as much vocabulary as possible. Janet tailored to my needs and I greatly appreciated that. Janet is a confident young woman and she’s very good at what she does. I plan on getting more Spanish Lessons from her when I get back. Just within the first lesson I receive so much value. I would highly recommend Janet to anyone and would encourage you to purchase a package of lessons today you won’t regret. Thank you Janet I greatly appreciate you and look forward to working with you in the future. Have a great day! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Learning Spanish in Chicago

by Teresa K. - Chicago Spanish Teacher

Top job-searching websites are currently showing more than 1,900 bilingual Spanish job openings in the Chicago and surrounding suburb areas. From insurance agents to managerial positions in companies of all industries, being bilingual is certainly a plus for any kind of job. So, if you're interested in taking Spanish lessons in Chicago, here are some opportunities to experience Spanish-Latino culture here in the greater Chicagoland area!

  1. The International Latino Cultural Center of Chicago has the following resources and events: • Chicago Latino Film Festival, including more than 100 films • Latino Music Festival, with 15-20 concerts • The Reel Film Club, showing the most popular films from the past Film Festivals • Film in the Park, in partnership with Chicago Park District

  • At the National Museum of Mexican Art, you can immerse yourself in the richness of Mexican art and culture right here in Chicago! For more information, visit: http://www.nationalmuseumofmexicanart.org/

  • The Chicago Public Library has numerous resources and books about Hispanic American culture, history and research information.

  • Also, here are some FAQs from my students about learning Spanish:

    1) What dialect of Spanish should I learn?

    There is some confusion around the concept of a "dialect." While speakers of different Chinese dialects (Mandarin, Cantonese, etc.) can hardly understand each other due to a big diversity in the forms of the dialects, the Spanish spoken in Spain and countries in Latin America is only one language with accent variations. A native Spanish speaker in Mexico can easily communicate with a native Spanish speaker in Spain, Peru or Argentina. Accents may vary (in the same way an English-speaker from Texas may speak differently than an English-speaker from England), but it's still the same language.

    2) How many types or dialects of Spanish are there?

    Spain used to consist of several kingdoms and each had a different language, such as Castellano, Catalan, Gallego, etc. The actual Constitution of Spain recognizes those different languages as official languages in Spain, while Castellano (Castilian) is defined as the unifying language for the entire country. Castellano (Spanish) is the language taught in America by the Spanish colonists, resulting in the "Español" spoken in America, with slight accent variations in different countries.

    3) What are the fastest ways to learn Spanish?

    I always encourage my students to practice Speaking, Listening, Reading and Writing in Spanish (SLRW). When learning a new expression, it's recommended to say it out loud, listen to the teacher, read and write it, and make other similar sentences. When a person desires to be a good singer, he or she needs to sing every day. The same goes for Spanish; it's necessary to practice Spanish in all four ways: SLRW. That's the reason why the TOEFL test includes all four sections.

    4) How can I choose the best Spanish teacher?

    My recommendation is to learn Spanish from a teacher who lived ten or more years in any Spanish-speaking country, for better pronunciation and language structure. Plus, the language teacher should be good at all four areas of the language (SLRW). If you want to take Spanish lessons in Chicago, you'll find many teachers with these qualifications at TakeLessons!

    5) Why do some students learn better than others?

    After observing hundreds of students, I found out the secret is to be "SELF-CONFIDENT." Even for students in Spanish-speaking environments, if they don't believe that someday they could speak fluently, they never do. But any student, even an absolute beginner, can be easily fluent if she or he imagines that she or he can do it and gets proactive and interested. No matter if you make some mistakes. Simply think, "I DO SPEAK SPANISH," and start speaking out loud!
