Learning Spanish in Dallas

By Spanish tutor Micah B. (https://takelessons.com/profile/micah-b3)

So, you’re living in Texas. That means that Spanish is muy importante. Many job applicants are realizing that being bilingual is not only cool, but necessary in a state with such a large population of Spanish speakers. Since there is such a demand for Spanish speakers, it is easy to get immersed without having to move to Mexico.

To supplement your Spanish lessons in Dallas, here are some ways to practice the language around the area.

Tired of grammar drills? Go see a movie! If you’re having fun with a language, then you’re learning. Cinema Latino in Fort Worth shows Hollywood and Spanish-speaking films, as well as documentaries important to the Hispanic community. English-speaking movies will have subtitles in Spanish, so you can learn while you are entertained. If you really want to challenge yourself, grab tickets to a Spanish-speaking movie for serious listening practice. I dare you! Check out Cinemalatino.com for more information. Feel like staying in? Go rent a movie at Premiere Movie -- they have an obscenely large foreign film section.

Are you a book aficionado? Then let’s jump into a book! The Spanish culture is known for its many Nobel Prize- winning authors and poets. Reading books outside of your regular Spanish lessons in Dallas will help you use vocabulary correctly because you’re learning it in context. Books also contain a lot of dialogue, which will help you with idiomatic expressions that often aren’t found in textbooks. Learning these expressions allows you to sound more like a native. That’s the point, right? I recommend checking out The Wild Detectives bookstore and café (thewilddetectives.com), which was opened by two Spaniards who moved to Dallas for work, so it has a European vibe with an eclectic mix of events hosted monthly. Lucky Dog Books also contains a large variety of used and new Spanish language books (Luckydogbooks.com).

Want to stroll around Mexico without having to buy the expensive plane ticket? Go get some real tacos in Oak Cliff. Sit at one of the outdoor taco stands and soak in your surroundings, listen in on neighboring conversations, and see if you can follow the conversation. Immersing yourself in the language helps you connect the vocabulary and grammar to realistic situations. If someone accuses you of being metiche (nosy), then openly tell them you’re trying to learn Spanish. I can almost guarantee that you will be asked to sit at their table and join in the conversation! The Mexican culture is very welcoming, so use it to your advantage and start chatting. Ask your new friends about their favorite music and download it when you get home.

Not ready for native speakers just yet? Sign up with Meetup.com. There are Spanish conversation groups meeting in every neighborhood: Richardson, Plano, Irving, and more. Most of them meet on weekends at a local coffee shop or bookstore. Getting your feet wet with non-native speakers is a fantastic way to gain confidence. Not only will your conversation skills improve, but you will be meeting other Spanish language lovers in Dallas, which will only lead to more Spanish learning. Then you’ll have friends to brave those Spanish-speaking movies with.

Learning a new language is a big commitment, so why shouldn’t it be fun? If you include variety in your learning experience, then you will not get burned out or bored. Movies, books, music, and interesting conversations should all be a part of your learning repertoire. As long as Spanish is a part of your day, then you are on your way to fluency. Music in the car, books before bed, conversation on the weekends, and movies on a night out: this will set you up for success as you take Spanish lessons in Dallas!

Authentic. My desire is to create lessons that use authentic resources to help develop language acquisition. I want to use infographs, articles, and videos that cover today’s issues and topics in Spanish speaking countries. Less emphasis on grammar and more emphasis on communication. However, I have taught level one Spanish at junior high and high school levels going on 4 years now and will be able to help you excel in your course work.

About Jordan
When I was in high school I struggled with Spanish but through passion and determination I overcame my struggles. I am now thankful for how much I struggled because I throughly understand how others struggle and why they struggle. Those struggles have made me a better teacher.

Spanish is fun. That is my approach to teaching the language and culture. My teaching experience has been centered in High School Spanish from beginners level-AP Spanish Literature (high passing rate on final exam). I have also worked with children in elementary and middle school level. In addition to college level Spanish tutoring experience, I have also worked with adults, who just wanted to brush up on conversational for travel, pleasure, or business. "Aprende, practica y logra tu objetivo"

About Catalina
Loving what I do is what makes me an effective and popular Spanish Teacher/Tutor. As a Native Speaker of the target language, I had to learn English. Having had that experience, has helped me to relate to the difficulty involved in language acquisition and to become more compassionate with my students and their needs.
I have been teaching / tutoring successfully for over 15 years now. I have worked with students from elementary school - college level ( Undergrad/Grad). I have a Certificate in AP Spanish Literature, which is the highest level of High School Spanish. I have also worked with adults who wanted to increase their knowledge of the language and culture for both leisure and business reasons.
Keeping in mind the needs and goals of my students, each class is designed to cater to the individual's needs. !Buena Suerte con su
aprendizaje del idioma!

I love the beauty of the Spanish language and have enjoyed being a student of the language myself. I practice daily in conversation, in song, and/or via text every day in order to continue improving. As opposed to solely memorizing facts, I can help beginning students learn to effectively communicate in Spanish in a practical way.

About Bridget
Hello! My name is Bridget. I love helping others to reach their goals! How? I believe in having a friendly attitude, actively listening to what the student would like to accomplish, and developing a practical game plan to help each student fulfill his or her objective.

Bridget has been a saving grace for my family, helping my 11 yr old daughter with math. Through her calm demeanor and patience she managed to help my daughter bring a failing math grade to a solid B. Bridget has been able to teach my daughter in a way that connects with her. Facing the rest of this long school year seems much easier knowing we have Bridget to help get us over those pesky humps with the dreaded 6th grade math.

We will learn through subjects of interest of the student. The lessons will be interesting as the student will be asked what is the best and funniest way that he/she would like to learn. This is a process of two (teacher-student) where we will learn and grow together to achieve the student's goals.

About Michelle
Hello everyone, I am very pleased to have the opportunity to teach this beautiful language. I am a student athlete that comes from Bogotá, Colombia. I graduated from high school with a 3.8 GPA and currently, I am a junior student of Political Science with a 3.7 GPA. I lived in Spain for a semester and studied English and Spanish there. Being myself an athlete, I am very consistent, organized, and disciplined. That is why I take my lessons very serious and give my all to the students.

Hello! Learning can be fun! I enjoy working with students and teaching is my passion! I have more than 10 years successfully teaching and tutoring students. You may ask: what does success mean?

I have been a language instructor in many capacities; both teaching English to Spanish-speaking professionals in Chile and teaching Spanish to English-speaking students of all ages here in the US. I hold a B.A. in Spanish from the University of Tennessee, as well as a language certification from Universidad Catolica de Valparaiso in Chile. I am a curriculum developer, interpreter, translator, and instructor. I would love to show you how to become a self-learner, which I find to be the greatest asset in learning a new language. I will not only teach you, but show you HOW to learn.

About Elaine
Hola! I have been teaching the piano and Spanish for over 10 years, and love seeing how quickly we all can learn a new skill if we just have the right coaching. I'm a firm believer in teaching you HOW to learn first, no matter the subject. Many of my students become so proficient in the art of being self-taught, they soon don't need me ( which I consider an honor!) . Whether on the piano or in the Spanish language, I know we all have the capacity for more, and I'll help you get there. I'm a mom of 2 beautiful girls and a little lab puppy. My husband and I love our kids and our Southern life! Feel free to reach out to me with any questions.
