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.

I've taken classes with Adan for over two years now--since the beginner level--and I couldn't be more pleased.

Adan is an excellent and conscientious teacher who genuinely cares about working with students to find the best approach for making progress. He has a gift for explaining things clearly, both the grammar and the idiomatic details that are important for developing conversation and getting a real feel for the language. The material is very well chosen, fun and productive; class is something I look forward to every week.

Learning a new language is a challenge and working with a good teacher makes a huge difference. Adan is a great choice!

I have been working with Adan for over 2 years and he is an amazing teacher!! He has taught me Spanish at beginning, intermediate, and advanced levels. He has helped me to learn the vocabulary, grammar and content that I need for my job. Adan draws upon a variety of engaging resources (e.g., Ted Talks, television shows, news articles) to expand my knowledge of Spanish and the culture of Spanish-speaking countries. Adan's classes are interesting and challenging and he makes me feel successful and motivated to learn more. I highly recommend him!

Adan has been my teacher for the past year, and I only have great things to say. He is warm, patient, curious, present, and clearly loves to teach. Adan has a thorough understanding of English, so he is well aware of the difficulties English speakers face when learning Spanish. I find the one-to-one, structured, progressive grammar lessons work so well for me. As a beginner who doesn't speak any other languages, making the decision to learn Spanish was very intimidating for me, but now I look forward to my lessons...always!

Experienced teacher of 6 years, specializing in children (6-12years old) and adult education. All ages welcome. Lessons are created according with the necessities of the student. Teaching Spanish is my passion because I think that it is not only to teach a language, it means much more. It means to share a culture, to share a tradition and a different point of view of the life that enrich and develop both the student and the teacher.

About Genoveva
I am Genoveva, I am Spanish and I graduated in Primary Education Degree and Classic Music (guitar) bachelor. In addition, I have been doing several courses related to teaching Spanish as a foreign language as well as courses about teaching a second language acquisition.

Concerning my experience working with children in a classroom setting in a Primary School, in November 2011, I undertook an internship in a Primary School as part of my Teacher Training Degree, which allowed me to get closer to the reality of the classroom. After that, I did two internships more in different schools. I found the whole experience thoroughly enjoyable and I learnt many skills for the future, especially, the importance of an effective communication and a cooperative work.

Furthermore, I did an internship from September 2013 to June 2014 as Spanish Teacher
Assistant in two different faculties of Fontys University in Tilburg. (The Netherlands): Fontys University of Applied Sciences and Fontys University Economy and Business. I have to admit that this experience was wonderful and it made me to be more and more interested in the Spanish Teacher world. In addition, this great opportunity gave me the chance to improve my classroom management strategies and learn about adult education too. At the same time, during my stay in The Netherlands, I attended a teacher training course of Spanish at the Instituto Cervantes of Utrecht, specializing in dynamic activities for teach lexicon, grammar and syntax among adult people. I also attended another course from Instituto Cervantes this year to have the capacity to analyze Spanish oficial exams.

Recently, I have finished a training course to teach Spanish as a foreign language in ‘Universidad Europea de Madrid’ and I am very motivated to continue training for the future too.
Teaching Spanish as a foreign language is one of my biggest vocations.
Nowadays, I work as a Spanish teacher in Lake Oconee Academy in Greensboro.
