Get Inspired: Spanish Lessons in Pittsburgh

So, you’ve decided to learn the Spanish language! If you currently have very little association with the Spanish language or culture, fear not. Pittsburgh offers a wide range of learning opportunities, including a Spanish language meetup group, with events for native speakers and new beginners alike, geared to ability level.

A good starting point for studying anything at all is to have a firm idea of what you want to get out of your lessons, and what your end goal might be. For example, a course of study for conversational purposes and getting by when on vacation in Spanish speaking countries will differ somewhat from a course geared towards someone who needs to learn Spanish for business purposes or for college credits.

The Hispanic population of Pittsburgh is only around 1%, but there is a wide variety of Latin American and other Spanish cultural events that take place within the city each year. Local Latino restaurants and bars run regular functions that may be of interest to new Spanish students, and the Hispanic Studies departments at the universities will offer a varied program of activities and talks to supplement and enrich your personal study of the language. If your tastes run to the performing arts - both participating and viewing - Salsa Pittsburgh's website (http://www.salsapittsburgh.com/event_calendars.html) offers a full dance events calendar filled with opportunities to get moving. Additionally, the Latin American Cultural Union (http://www.lacunet.org/#!clients/c1tsl) can keep you fully informed with regard to poetry readings, theatrical events, and even an annual picnic.

With regard to study of the language itself, you may want to track down like-minded individuals who can band together and practice vocabulary and conversational skills together. If you're shy, or new to learning languages, you may feel less intimidated to start with by working on a one to one basis with a teacher. Bear in mind that there's no way to learn a language faster than to use it, however, so do consider finding a buddy to learn with, even if you're both only becoming confident about asking directions, or telling new acquaintances a little about yourself with your new skills.

Not sure where to start, or how to begin? Looking for a teacher through a reputable tutoring site is an easy, safe place. Taking Spanish lessons in Pittsburgh is great for students who are looking to get involved in the language for any reason, whether they want to be a language teacher, conversational speaker, or are a career-focused individual. All students are able to polish their newfound and growing skills. All things Spanish are thriving in this city- so there's no better time to take Spanish lessons in Pittsburgh.

About Paul
Hi there! My name is Paul and I am a french native whose spent my whole between the US, Spain and France, where I still spend at part of my time. I've attended a french school all of my life in Madrid
, Spain. I am considered what they call a "third cultured kid", meaning I don't feel I pertain to a specific culture in the world but rather I feel like citizen of the world. Open mindedness is by far one of my most sacred values and inclusiveness is the main practice I try to express to my students.

France was always a country of inclusion and immigration, and like the United States, it was build and grew because of those foreigners. I'll be delighted to show you what the values of my dearest country are in the most creative way, giving you a head start in the french culture and way of life. Additionally, I will give you extensive material according to your needs, capacity and personal ambition in the subject you choose.

I've also participated in many informal teaching endeavors within my close entourage for the children of my parents close friends.

I look forward to meeting you and enticing you in the french flair, la vie en rose and many other french-like sensations embodied in the french motto from the French revolution: Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité. A bientôt camarades!

Zaray has been my teacher for over 4 years and has been amazing! She taught me mostly everything about music and helped me get accepted into one of the best schools in Florida. I took singing lessons and piano lessons that helped me learn a lot, because of her I was able to preform in new York and attend the All-state elementary choir. Overall an excellent teacher, I really recommend!

Zaray has done such great work. She really takes the time to diagnose the problem with her stellar ear and to prescribe the best exercises to enhance the vocal mechanism. Not only does she have an abundant technical vocabulary, she really personalizes her style of teaching for each student. Apart from being technically a wizard, she is one of the most joyful people to be around. Her calm demeanor and easy going self really makes a student of every level comfortable. I highly recommend!!

Jaime was an ABSOLUTELY AMAZING TEACHER! He had the ability to work with students who were Pre-K through college. He could relate to them in a way that that fostered mutual trust and provided a safety zone for students to work and grow as life-long learners. I completely and wholeheartedly believe that he has can teach any subject from beginning reading to WHATEVER!
