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!

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.

Hola!

I am a Cuban American with a love of the Spanish language. Not only did I grow up using Spanish with family, I have studied it for 11 years. It all started in my 7th grade class with Sra. Claudia and continued through College. I was a Spanish Minor at the University of Minnesota, I completed a semester in Costa Rica, and I substitute teach at Windom Spanish Immersion Elementary. I am strong in identifying children's strengths and needs and use that to tailor to the student's learning. I enjoy being playful and productive. Nos vemos pronto!

We hired Elia to teach our three kids Spanish. We were very pleased with the results. Elia made the lessons fun and the kids enjoyed learning. I would say they are not fluent but they sure can communicate in Spanish!

I am motivated, trained, and know exactly what you need to learn in order to be successful in your journey of becoming fluent in the Spanish language. With almost eight years of Spanish experience, I can enable you to speak Spanish like you’ve always wanted. Rather than being a teacher who strictly lectures, I will be more involved and teach you Spanish the way that best fits, and also the way that sticks. With a few lessons, you’ll be ready to go to your local Spanish restaurant and order food of your own in the Spanish language. I guarantee it. Join a class and we will see the bounds that you can reach in your Spanish learning, for I assure you, they are limitless. See you soon! “Hasta pronto!”

About Hunter
I am professor Hunter or Cole (whichever you prefer), and I have been learning the Spanish language all of my life! It all started at my mother’s workplace where I met her coworker, Monica, who spoke 5 languages! I began learning Spanish with Monica when I was very young and from there I fell in love! Since you have found yourselves here, I take it you are developing a urge to learn the Spanish language as well, and I can help with that! With beginner and intermediate experience, I can teach you the basics and make you into a Native speaker in no time; all it takes is practice, practice, practice. I travelled to the Dominican Republic or “la República Dominicana” when I was a junior in high school, and that REALLY got me interested in the Spanish language when I found myself almost unable to communicate with the children in the local vill
age, and from there, I have been learning Spanish every day for years! If you have a passion for learning something, you are absolutely capable of learning the knowledge it takes to succeed, so start some lessons and see if you enjoy them! I am positive you will enjoy them and see spectacular progression in no time!!! Considering I was once a nervous child who could barely speak Spanish and now I am someone who is teaching lessons, anything can happen, and I believe in YOU!!!
