Speaking Up and Going Out: Spanish Lessons in Saint Paul and Minneapolis

By Tyler S. - Minneapolis Spanish Teacher

Did you know that Saint Paul and Minneapolis area is a hub for cultural diversity where more than twenty languages are spoken in the community? And of all these languages, Spanish is the second most commonly spoken language. I frequently have the opportunity to speak Spanish almost anywhere I go in the city, and the people here are delighted to converse when they find out you want to practice. The Saint Paul and the Minneapolis area is the home of many useful resources for improving your Spanish such as conversation groups, Spanish classes, Spanish immersion schools for your children grades K-8th, and small businesses that belong to our vibrant Latino community. If you are someone who is ready to get out there and practice your Spanish, Saint Paul is full of opportunity for you!

Here are my top five favorite locations in for practicing after your Spanish Lessons in Saint Paul and Minneapolis:

1) Midtown Global Market 920 E Lake St #G10, Minneapolis, MN 55407 http://www.midtownglobalmarket.org/ If you are in the mood to go shopping and pick up some useful Spanish expressions, visiting the Midtown Global Market is a must. I have frequently taken my students to this marketplace where they can sample authentic food from Central and South American culture, and likewise browse hundreds of other items labeled only in Spanish. This location is great for reading practice and most of the store clerks love to speak Spanish with me and my students. I always have the feeling that I’m traveling to a foreign country when I visit the Global Market, minus the costly expenses and hours of travel. This marketplace is ideal for entertainment and local language submersion!

2) Teatro del Puelbo 209 Page St W #208, St Paul, MN 55107 http://teatrodelpueblo.org/ This area is a national hotspot for the arts, and the Teatro del Pueblo is one of its unique resources for finding Spanish-speakers as well as theatrical entertainment. Although the organization is situated in Saint Paul, many of its performances take place in Minneapolis. Teatro del Pueblo works to promote Latino culture by providing artistic performance in Spanish as an educational opportunity, and by supporting local Latino artists. It is a great pleasure experiencing theater performed in Spanish, and then discussing the performance with other audience members in both Spanish and English afterwards. I learn something new and valuable every time I attend a performance by Teatro del Pueblo.

3) Lake Street District E. Lake Street Minneapolis, MN Only a short drive from Saint Paul, you can walk up and down East Lake Street in South Minneapolis where you will encounter dozens of stores, restaurants, and music venues where Spanish is the main language spoken. These establishments are owned by members of the Latino community and are often where many native Spanish speakers do their shopping. This becomes quickly apparent as most everything is label in Spanish, which is a great chance for learning new vocabulary. Some of my favorite pastimes for learning more Spanish here include conversing with the owner of the taquería (taco shop), ordering in Spanish over the counter at the panadería (bakery), and listening to live authentic mariachi bands. If you are serious about practicing Spanish, please take the time to visit the vibrant Lake Street district. ¡Es muy interesante!

4) Conga Latin Bistro 501 East Hennepin Avenue, Minneapolis, MN, 55414 http://www.congalatinbistro.com/ If you are ready to dive headfirst into the nightlife of Latino culture, look no further than Conga Latin Bistro. For any of my Latino friends who live in Saint Paul or Minneapolis, Conga is the #1 restaurant in the area that offers live music, conversation with native Spanish-speakers, and great salsa dancing! Two of the greatest things about this location are the fun, easy-going atmosphere, and the diversity of Spanish speakers. Not only will you pick up some common standardized Spanish, but people can teach you about the dialect of Spanish they speak (such as Ecuadorian Spanish). I have yet to find a more diverse group of Spanish speakers in Minneapolis than the fun people who go to Conga.

5) Hennepin County Library 300 Nicollet Mall Minneapolis, MN 55401 http://www.hclib.org/ In the entire city of Minneapolis, The Hennepin County Library is the greatest free resource for reading practice in Spanish. This is the first resource I think of when I need a quick reference about Spanish grammar, or to find an interesting Spanish film to watch. The library is made of a large system totaling 16 libraries, and you can request books to be sent from any of these libraries to the nearest one to your location. I have yet to find a better collection of children’s books written in Spanish, films, dictionaries, and hundreds of novels for students at the intermediate or advanced level.

You now have the resources to learn as much Spanish as your heart desires in the Saint Paul and Minneapolis metro areas. These are not the only resources in Saint Paul, so I encourage you to do more web-searching for events or conversation groups if you’re up to the challenge. It’s important to surround yourself with a language if you want to gain fluency, and taking advantage of local language resources is a way to avoid the costs of expensive travel. The more you surround yourself with those who share your interest in Spanish, the more your language skills will improve. This is a friendly, supportive community, so sign up for Spanish lessons in Saint Paul and find an instructor who can help you succeed in your desire to learn the language!

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.

More than a Spanish teacher I’m in love of this language and Spanish culture. I’m from Spain and more than a skill I’m interested in making my students getting involved with the language. I’m a psychologist who have been working with learning as language process so I know exactly what to do to make you speak , write and understand Spanish!

About Leticia

I have experience teaching all ages for native English speakers and for Portuguese native speakers as well.
I’ve been teaching kids and adolescents for more than three years and it was an incredible experience.

All courses are indivualy designe, that means that every single students will have a first interview with me to tell me what goals do they have and why Spanish is important for them. After this, the method will be created for helping us to achieve the target.
Spanish is an amazing language that will surprise yo

Letícia is the best teacher I found in the area by far.
I improved my Spanish skills a lot in a short period of time.

During my last business travel to Spain, I was able to negotiate and have conversations with locals, they understood everything that I was saying. That's something I couldn't do last year.

Totally recommended!

I have been studying Spanish for 10 years. I grew up speaking Spanish, and I studied abroad in Sevilla, Spain! Tutoring sessions are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student. Not only will you be speaking Spanish in no time, but you will be building a strong foundation of reading comprehension, conversational skills, listening comprehension, pronunciation, and more. ¡Vamos! Let's get started!

About Madeline
I am a born and raised Southern California girl, with a Latina "alma" (soul), according to my nanny, but I love living in freezing Minnesota. It was difficult to say goodbye to sunny CA and In-n-Out, but the challenge of moving here was well worth it. For me, moving to St. Paul was like moving to a foreign country. People are friendly, the weather is incredibly different, and the lifestyle is more grounded. It's a wonderful change from my life spent in California, but I'm always excited to go home.

I studied abroad in Sevilla, Spain in Spring 2018!

My dream, since I was little, was to create change in the world. I want to help others and make a positive impact. Find out more about me and my goals by getting in touch.
