Spanish Lessons in Minneapolis/St. Paul

By Cheyenne J. - Minneapolis Spanish Teacher

So you're a Spanish student that's taken a few days, weeks, or even years of Spanish lessons in Minneapolis, and perhaps you're wondering, "When will I be fluent in Spanish?" The simple answer is, the more time you dedicate to it, the sooner you'll be a pro! And with more than 37 million Spanish speakers in the U.S. and over 170,000 in Minnesota, you can bet that mastering Spanish will be a major boost for you in college, career, and beyond!

In addition to learning the basics of Spanish vocabulary and grammar - which any TakeLessons tutor can help you master in a matter of weeks or even days - the best way to hit the accelerator on your Spanish competency is to immerse yourself in the language!

For young Spanish learners (ages 0-14) check out Wild Rumpus Bookstore (http://www.wildrumpusbooks.com) for a wide selection of Spanish learning and Spanish language books! A beautiful fantasy world of books and friendly animals, this part-bookstore, part-zoo is truly a fantastic experience for readers young and old. Their friendly staff will happily direct you to their unique Spanish section.

Once you've picked up the basics, head to Mercado Central (http://visitlakestreet.com/directory/category/mercado-central), where you'll be surrounded by Spanish speakers and an endless variety of shops, restaurants, and Spanish-owned businesses. Check out their website for a complete listing of the businesses inside this marvelous maze.

This vivacious marketplace of 45 businesses is a gem of the Lake Street community, and by supporting these local businesses you're helping a part of your own Minneapolis community continue and thrive. At Libreria La Paz you'll find a treasure trove of adult books and novels in Spanish. Reading books you enjoy in Spanish is one of the best ways to improve your Spanish skills! When you get hungry, be sure to stop by a personal favorite of mine, La Loma Tamales, whose handmade Mexican tamales alone are worth the whole trip! For an added challenge, ask for assistance, order food, or make purchases in Spanish, but be sure to look up a few related words and phrases first if you're not sure how to say things like "¿Cuánto cuesta?" (How much does this cost? )!

Another great way to build Spanish confidence is to socialize with other Spanish speakers in one of Minneapolis' Spanish Meetup groups (http://spanish.meetup.com/cities/us/mn/minneapolis). For intermediate and advanced Spanish speakers looking to improve their fluency, the Minneapolis Spanish Language Meetup group, or the Minneapolis/St. Paul Spanish Conversation Group might be for you! For a more laid back adult social experience, try the Spanish Happy Hour Group.

Minneapolis Community Education offers Spanish language and conversation classes, and registration is currently open for Summer Youth and Adult Programs (http://www.mplscommunityed.com/index.cfm?method=ClassListing.ClassListingDisplay&int_category_id=1&int_sub_category_id=1&int_catalog_id=)! MCE also offers the Howe Summer Spanish Language Camp for youth grades 1 through 8.

Watching Spanish performances, movies, and television shows can also greatly improve your Spanish skills and can accelerate the progress you’re achieving from Spanish lessons in Minneapolis! Casa de España en Minnesota (http://www.casadeespanamn.org/) is an amazing resource for authentic cultural events, all of which are guaranteed to be a thoroughly immersive experience.

Check out performances at the Zorongo Flamenco Dance Theatre and School (http://www.zorongo.org/events.html) to experience traditional flamenco concerts and events.

Interested in learning to make mouthwatering Spanish cuisine? Kitchen Window features group classes by talented chefs that frequently offer instruction oneverything from tapas to traditional hispanic cuisine. (http://www.kitchenwindow.com/browse.cfm/all-classes/2,50.html)

With such a multitude of diverse experiences to choose from to get you engaging in Spanish dialogue, you'll be sure to find your niche! When learning any new language the keys are to practice a little every day and be patient with yourself. You'll make a few mistakes along the way, but the fun you'll have taking Spanish lessons in Minneapolis and exploring the city’s vibrant Spanish community will heftily outweigh the difficulties. If you mix in a little variety by practicing speaking, reading, writing, and listening to Spanish as a part of your daily routine you will improve your Spanish faster than you ever thought possible. Pretty soon you'll even be dreaming in Spanish!

Pianists will learn to read music and play by ear while acquiring a healthy technique to avoid any injuries.

I teach in a way that is as focused on the grammar as you want to be. I prefer conversational classes, but for many in traditional classes it is the grammar that they are not understanding.

About Bryce
Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn. -Ben Franklin

An investment in knowledge pays the best interest. - Ben Franklin

The unconventional method of teaching begins here

I am a Spanish Language Consultant

I am a concierge tutor meaning that I make every meeting personalized for you. Everyone learns a language differently. For some they just want to speak. For others they want to learn to read or write. And some want to do it all. Either way I will do everything in my power to assure that happens.

Where did I learn Spanish?
I took it in high school like all of us and failed out in the second year. Then seven years later I took a class in Bellevue College and got the best grade in the class. Soon after the class finished I moved to Bogotá, Colombia for a year and half where I really improved
my level to near native status. When I was a kid in high school I did not see how cool it is to be able to speak another language nor did I care. However, now it was a defining point in my life and something that no one can take away from me.

My schedule is also very flexible giving you plenty of freedom over when to meet.

I am connected to a network of native speakers who are all my very close friends who can be included in the sessions when the time is right or whenever you may like.

I have been a Spanish Consultant since 2011 and love doing it. I really get fired up when students begin to take off on their own with the language with less and less of my help.

I don't think you will find a more passionate tutor.

Students who will succeed with me can be of any age but should have these traits if they wish to excel:
Discipline
Not afraid to make mistakes
Positive attitudes
Open mind
Willingness to think outside of the box

Thank you and have a beautiful day now

Great first lesson. Kathleen contacted me in advance to find out what I’d like to work on and she was prepared with several options tonight. Her helpful tips on folding and diagram reading were just what I was looking for. We agreed on the next piece and I’m already looking forward to our next lesson. Thank you!

I was looking for a boost to my new hobby with origami, and have had two lessons so far with Kathleen. I couldn't be happier with the lesson experience; her approach is detailed, clear, easy to follow along with and relaxed. She was even folding upside down from her point of view so that I could see from across the table. I was really impressed. There's nothing like learning from a real person. Definitely looking forward to more lessons in the future.

When I teach piano or Spanish, I encourage students to challenge themselves. To play instruments in public or to speak a foreign language regularly with other people will definitely help them get over the fear of 'looking ridiculous'. You don't have to be at a very advanced level to communicate with an instrument or a language.

I've spoken Spanish natively my whole life and played the piano since age five. My first Spanish student was my Minnesotan husband!

Not being able to find the right person I decided to study so I could provide the best learning experience to my own children and that became my new career more than fifteen years now.
I have traveled through Latin America and gained cultural and academic knowledge. I have owned a language program for ten years and trained and supervised hundreds of language teachers and enjoyed thousands of young and old students' language accomplishments.
I have also had the hon
