Spanish Lessons in Houston

By Bonnie T. - Houston Spanish Teacher

¡Hola! ¡Bienvenidos a Houston! If you’ve already started Spanish lessons then you know this means: Hello! Welcome to Houston! If you haven’t started Spanish lessons in Houston yet, then you have come to the right place!

Houston is known as one of the greatest melting pots in America. We have a rich Hispanic culture that is eager to help English-speakers learn their romance language. Another reason why learning Spanish in Houston is so unique is because of our relation to the US-Mexico border! Those who speak Spanish and English have a huge advantage. Many employers require or prefer that applicants are bilingual in English and Spanish since there is such a large native Spanish-speaking population.

Don’t fret if you don’t know much (if any!) Spanish yet. There are several resources around Houston that can help you improve your Spanish.

1) I strongly recommend visiting various restaurants around Houston that enjoy speaking to their patrons in Spanish. This is especially important to practice if you plan on visiting Latin or South America or Spain soon and need to learn Spanish quickly. I recommend Mi Luna in Rice Village and a wonderful panadería (or bakery) near the Second Ward called El Bolillo Bakery. (I recommend picking up some churros and tres leches! Yum!) Both of these locations enjoy helping native English speakers learn Spanish. I frequently place my order in Spanish—there’s always room for improvement!

2) Another great place to improve your Spanish speaking skills is at the annual Frida Festival. This event celebrates one of Latin America’s most renowned artists, Frida Kahlo. This is a great opportunity not only to speak more Spanish but also to take in the rich Latin American culture—an important part of learning any foreign language.

3) Regardless of religious or spiritual preferences, Our Lady of Guadalupe Church is a wonderful resource! They frequently have events open to the community (such as ferias, various festivals, game nights, and more) that can greatly improve your comprehension of Spanish, especially if attended frequently. The church is very welcoming to newcomers and has a rich Hispanic culture. Their bulletins are even in Spanish and English so that everyone can understand and feel welcome!

4) If you know anything about Mexican culture, you are probably familiar with the celebration of Cinco de Mayo. This is a very important event celebrated in the Houston area regarding Mexico’s defeat of the French in 1862 on May 5th (hence “cinco de Mayo”). There are large celebrations at nearly every Mexican restaurant as well as various venues. Simply search online for where the celebrations are being held near you and I’m sure you’ll come across something awesome!

5) My final recommendation utilizes http://www.meetup.com/. There is a fun and educational group in the Houston area called Houston Language Partners. The idea is that you teach someone a language (such as English) and in exchange, you will be taught a language. For instance, I’ll teach you Spanish for an hour if you teach me English for an hour. It’s a great way to both give back to the community and improve your Spanish. The group also offers social events that are low-key, so no need to stress. http://www.meetup.com/HoustonLanguagePartners/

Spanish can be an incredibly fun language to learn, especially if you supplement your learning by engaging with various groups across the Houston area. But remember, practice makes perfect, so be sure to engage with Spanish-speakers frequently. Not only will this improve your comprehension and vocabulary, but it will also help you master the accent! Just remember that most people are eager to help you learn and will not judge you for not understanding the language well at first. Just try your best and get out there, and find a great private tutor for Spanish lessons in Houston! The Spanish language is awaiting you.

Signing off from the great land of Houston,

Bonnie

My Spanish lessons are fun and dynamic. The student will learn at their own pace, being always encouraged to improve and perfect pronunciation and structure. My classes include cultural aspects of the language, such as music, cooking, dancing and expressions in order to have a more rounded understanding of the language.

About Hilda
I am a native Spanish speaker, who also speaks Portuguese, and French. I have taught and tutored Spanish students from beginner-advance levels, both private and in groups for several years and taught Spanish full time at a school from grades 5-12 for a year. I currently teach art and Spanish at school for grades 1-7. I recently started teaching beginner ESL for Spanish speakers. I also teach art, drawing and painting for adults and older teens. I love teaching and intend to make it enjoyable and fun. I always encourage students to become independent and self reliant in all the subjects I teach. I care about each student and base my classes on their personal preferences, needs and circumstances.

Learning Spanish is easier than you think! We will use a wonderful course to guide our lessons together, designed to take you from no knowledge of Spanish to conversational fluency. I look forward to introducing you to Spanish!

About Luke
I am deeply passionate about sharing knowledge with others and have been lucky to be teaching my entire adult life. There are so many enriching experiences available to us when we learn more about the world.

Foreign languages are among my favorites, and I have specialized in teaching Latin, Italian, and Japanese. As a geologist, I am also profoundly interested in the sciences. When I teach I like to understand where my students are coming from, what really inspires them, and help them to enjoy and love what they want to learn. For me, learning is always fun, so whether you like to study or you are having trouble motivating yourself to concentrate, together we will discover the joy and fun in what you are studying.

Wanting to learn Spanish for your business, travels, or just to meet and have a good conversation with a Hispanic person? I can help you with that.
I was born and raised in Puerto Rico thus, Spanish is my first language.
I can teach you the formal Spanish so you can win Spanish speaking clients, write the essay for your Spanish school class, or have a conversation with that special person. I also can teach you the informal English so you can have conversations with Hispanic friends or the Hispanic family of your loved one ;)
I know how difficult is to learn a new language. That happened to me when I came to the United States and didn't know how to say a full sentence in English. Having a conversation in that new language is the hardest part in this process. But I will show you examples that you may encounter in real life.
I have a Masters degree from Puerto Rico. My Thesis was written all in Spanish. I also have a PhD but this one was all in English. And something else? My mother ...

About Veronica
Do you want to win Spanish-speaking clients, write an essay for your Spanish class, or have conversations in Spanish? Let me help you with that.
I was born and raised in Puerto Rico, and moved to the United States 9 years ago. I know how hard is to learn a new language or get better at it. I have a Master's degree and a PhD in Health Services.
My mother is a retired Spanish teacher. Because of her, I love to teach and give tutorials. I've been a tutor to both elementary students and adults. I'm very patient and compassionate. I would love to help you achieve your goals.

I am not a native Spanish speaker, but I learned to read in Spanish before learning to read in English. I can help others who are struggling with figuring out why the Spanish language is the way it is. I can also motivate students who think they will never learn to speak Spanish.

About Shekkola
My first teaching role was as a catechist at the age of 18. After getting a degree in chemical engineering, i went to work as a process engineer and established a mentor ship program at a school with low student performance.

After working as an engineer for 11 years, I chose to enter the field of education to spend more time with my children and other children in need. My goal has always been helping others. I look forward to helping you!

Shekkola taught Math and science to my three boys in middle school and her teaching was transformative, since they neither liked math nor were good at it before she began to teach them. All three went on to science careers and two went on to take advanced math courses. Once they joined her class they began to love Mathas did all the children in Shekkola's class - which is practically unheard of. I don't know what her magic is, but I am eternally grateful to her

I was born, raised and college educated in México. I speak with a neutral accent and empathize with learners of a second language, since I have been one most of my life. English is my second language. I have 10 years of experience teaching ESL to adults, and I'm ready to start teaching Spanish to beginner learners. I can customize my lessons to meet the needs and goals of each student. Context based curriculum design experience. Let's work together to help you start speaking basic Spanish in no time!

About Nery
I am a teacher at heart. I like the language arts and the satisfaction that comes with helping others achieve their goals through learning a new language. I am a good communicator and adapt easily to new situations. I creatively customize lessons and instruction to meet the needs of the individual learner. I believe that creating a welcoming, fun and relaxing class environment fosters student’s confidence and a pleasant learning experience.

My professional life started in the corporate world, working as a Human Resources analyst before moving to the USA from my native México. I spent my first years in Texas at home, raising my kids and improving my bilingual skills. Some years later, I volunteered at my parish teaching ESL to adult immigrants. Having greatly enjoyed this activity, I started part time jobs at Harris County Department
of Education and McDonald’s, teaching ESL to a diverse body of adult students. These opportunities allowed me to gain considerable experience and confidence.

Let me help you start or improve your ESL or Spanish skills!
