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!

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. I look forward to connecting with you soon!

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.

Grand Prairie, TX

Spanish lessons with me are unique because I am a native English speaker who has had a true love for the language since I was young. I was forced to take Spanish my freshman year of high school, and discovered that I loved it. I studied it for fun outside of class and practiced whenever I could. I ended up going on to earn several advanced Spanish credits during college. I understand that language is always evolving and changing; thus, I do my best to keep up with the current trends in the Spanish language and its regional variations.

About Jennifer
I have been dancing in some form or fashion since the age of 3. I did ballet and tap recitals in preschool, took recreational gymnastics and cheerleading classes in elementary school, and did allstar dance and allstar cheerleading in middle school and high school. When I went away to college, I continued to take classes in many dance styles when I had time. I have never lost my love for dancing. My favorite styles are ballet, tap, and pom. I currently own a studio in the DFW metroplex and am excited to expand my teaching to online students!

I have been teaching professionally for 5 years. I have a unique teaching curriculum with an emphasis on speaking and understanding the Spanish language. You won't find anyone else that teaches Spanish like I do. All of my students have shown tremendous improvement in just a few days. My program is design for my students to learn the Spanish in a fun and interactive way, and not bored you with lesson from a textbook. A new language should be taught like if it was your first language and not be overwhelmed with all the "rules". I want my students to enjoy learning a new language and have them reach their full potential. Hasta pronto.

About Carlos
I am a certified bilingual speaker, I've been teaching Spanish for 5 years. I graduated from The university of Texas in Arlington with a Bachelors of Foreign language.

Studentd can expect to improve week to week in their speaking and understanding of the language. I believe that learning a new language should have a similar approach as when you learned your first. I primary teach students to speak and understand Spanish, reading and writing should and will come later into the teaching course. I can help any student quickly learn in just a few days, and give them the option to use it in a real life enviroment.

I teach Spanish to students of all different ages and experience levels. Spanish is my first language and I have all the tools to make anyone succeed. My unique teaching methods is what really separates me from the rest of the te
achers, no longer would you be reading books and learn the "rules" of the language. You would will quickly grasp the language and thanks to my unique approach, you will be talking in no time..

My personal passion is to see people succeed but I firmly believe that great technique is essential to be successful. I've seen time and time again someone trying to learn a new language and quickly give up simply because he/she did not have the right guidance. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to achieve your goals.
