- Learn Spanish with a native speaker
- I have learned two other languages, each one in a different way which helped me understand different approaches to teach/learn a new language.
- I’m a singer too, so I will make sure your pronunciation and clarity are in a good level, as well as help develop your listening skills.

Melissa is a miracle worker! My mother-in-law moved to the United States 40 years ago unable to speak english and while she has done a good job at learning on her own, she had significant gaps in her ability to effectively communicate. For her 68th birthday, I bought her lessons with Melissa. My mother-in-law told me I was wasting my money because she couldn't learn anything new. Well, needless to say, she can learn and with Melissa's excellent tutelage has dramatically increased her ability to speak and comprehend english. This has enabled a new level of confidence and freedom that she did not previously have and is a game changer for her. I attribute her improvement directly to Melissa's ability to understand her student's needs and personalities and craft and deliver a quality, tailored curriculum. After our first round of classes, my mother-in-law is excited to continue the lessons and has a renewed curiosity and interest in learning. Great job and thank you Melissa!!!
Kari Bardowell
Melissa has a lovely calming personality. She made us feel completely at ease while learning a foreign language. She was prepared and tailored the lesson for our specific goals and level.

She displayed an expert knowledge of the language, but was still able to teach beginners. Plus we could tell she really loved Portuguese.

The online format was great. Cant wait for the next lesson.
Darci
Melissa is the best! Extremely knowledgeable and patient with her students. I highly recommend her.

Online Spanish Teacher

Bienvenidos and welcome! My name is Teacher Allyssa! I am an English and Spanish teacher. I have a Bachelors degree from South Dakota State University in Spanish and Teaching. I have been to 19 countries and hope to visit many more. This makes me a much stronger teacher because I am constantly able to call on the cultural experiences and share them with my students. See some of my travels below! Because I have been to so many Spanish-Speaking countries this allowed me to learn Spanish more fluently and gain a more natural accent. I have been teaching Spanish and English now for the past 8 years. I love working with learners of all ages. 

About Allyssa

Want your child to speak Spanish? In this growing world Spanish is becoming more and more of a demand. I can provide the conversational skills to help your child learn Spanish fluently. My goal is to take the boredom out of learning. My classes are fun and colorful. They are geared towards ages 4-1

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!
