Private Spanish Teacher

I am a native Spanish speaker since I was born and raised in Mexico City. To this day I have continued to communicate with my family exclusively in full Spanish and we pride ourselves in respectfully avoiding the blending of English and Spanish, which occurs so often and takes away from the integrity of both beautiful languages.

As part of my College degree I hold a Minor in Latin American Studies, which involved several courses, all writing-intensive and all requiring extensive reading of Spanish-language literature. Among these courses was the" Art of Spanish Translation."

I have traveled throughout Mexico and Spain, as well as to Puerto Rico, and Chile, which has exposed me to several of the many accents in the language. I am proud to observe, even if I am perhaps somewhat biased, that in my experience, Mexican Spanish is one of the clearest and most universally understood and easy-to-learn forms of the language since it denotes each and every letter and the sounds aren't as ...

Real nice, and explains the lessons very clearly.
Carey
I am quite picky about language instructors because I like grammar, and since I already speak French I don't need as much time to learn Spanish. So I really wanted someone who would adjust her teaching to my speed and level. Dannia has done a great job of rolling with my preferences while suggesting things to do during the lesson that really help move me forward. Very pleased with how things are going.

I was nervous and worried that I couldn't do it. She assured me that I can. She has a perfect personality for a teacher. Im looking forward to this experience

I love working with students of all experience levels.

I'm always impressed at how many interactive activities she has prepared for me, how seamlessly she can switch back and forth between different websites and screens, and that she always has "homework" I can practice with before our next lesson.

I'm very much a beginner when it comes to Spanish but Alex is very patient and explains everything thoroughly and slowly enough that I can understand. I'm looking forward to becoming conversational and someday fluent in Spanish!"

Spanish Lessons in Philadelphia, PA

By Alanna S. - Philadelphia Spanish Teacher

Although Philadelphia may be known by out-of-town visitors as the birthplace of America, real residents know that the Philly of our forefathers is so 1776. Today, the cobblestone streets of Philadelphia celebrate cultures, countries and languages from around the globe. There couldn’t be a better spot to learn a new language or immerse yourself in another culture.

There’s no doubt that the ability to speak Spanish is growing more and more important in this country. And with Spanish as the second most popular language spoken in the city, Philadelphia makes the perfect classroom - whether you’re brushing up for a vacation, want to learn a new skill, or hope to improve yourself professionally.

While taking Spanish lessons in P

...

hiladelphia, you’ll have endless opportunities to immerse yourself in the local art and culture, and you'll have the chance to meet like-minded hispanohablantes to share your adventures. Below are some great ways to turn your turf into your textbook:

Taller Puertorriqueño (http://tallerpr.org/) Focused on celebrating Puerto Rican and Latino culture through the lens of art and performance, Taller Puertorriqueño is based on the belief that communities can be built and improved through the arts. From book readings, theater performances, art exhibitions and much more, Taller Puertorriqueño is known as El Corazón Cultural del Barrio (The Cultural Heart of Latino Philadelphia). If it takes more than an art show to help the language sink in, Taller has endless ways to get involved. Through their Visítenos program, they offer workshops, tours, lectures and more to promote a cultural awareness of the Puerto Rican and Latino local community. Even better, you can brush up on the vocab you’ve learned in your Spanish lessons in Philadelphia while giving back to the community. Opportunities to volunteer as homework-helpers for Spanish-speaking children give you the chance to help yourself and another at the same time.

Raíces Culturales (http://www.raicesculturales.org/) Not only does Raíces Culturales aim to explore the incredible culture of Latin America through art and performance, it fights against stereotypes and encourages diversity. From mural painting to a monthly lecture series, there is plenty to explore here. If you are seeking a little more rhythm in your day, you can join the weekly Descarga, a community jam session and open mic. With Descarga open free to the public every week, you can sit back and take in some new vocab, or get creative with your Spanish homework and share your own work.

Meetup.com (http://spanish.meetup.com/cities/us/pa/philadelphia/) Let’s face it - everything is easier with a good amigo at your side. Through Meetup.com, there are tons of possible groups to join to work with others who share your goal. It seems evident that the more opportunities you have to speak Spanish, the more comfortable you will feel. Not only do these Meetups give you the opportunity to have fun and find new friends, you won’t even realize how much easier the language is becoming. At the time of writing, there are over 14 groups for practicing Spanish within 25 miles from Philadelphia, which range from happy hours to group outings to cultural events.

Hispanic Festival (http://www.elconcilio.net/blog/events/hispanic-festival-at-penns-landing-2/) Put down the textbook. Sometimes a fiesta is the best way to learn! Every summer, PECO sponsors the Multicultural Summer Series at beautiful Penn’s Landing, a summer-long celebration of the diverse cultures that make Philadelphia thrive. Every July, the two-day Hispanic Festival celebrates Hispanic culture with incredible food, performances, and activities. It may not feel like you’re studying, but immerse yourself in this incredible language and culture, and your education becomes a celebration.

Spanish TV Shows on Netflix That Will Expedite Your Learning

One of the most common tips that Spanish teachers will tell their students is to watch shows in Spanish for listening comprehension. But what should you watch? More often than not, I find students who are learning Spanish on their own to end up watching “Narcos” or “El Señor de Los Cielos”. Although they are great shows, I wouldn’t suggest watching them for educational purposes. There are a lot of words and phrases that we should avoid using when we converse in Spanish. Especi …
