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

I've been teaching Spanish since I was in high school. I'm a fluent at speaking and writing Spanish. I took Spanish all through out high school and middle school. I'm very patient with student specially if it's not their first language. I make sure to always compare and contrast Spanish and English and ways to make them easier to understand how to speak it and write it. There's a lot of ways I make sure my students practice understanding when hearing Spanish vocabulary.

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 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 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.

Want to learn to speak Spanish super quickly?

Learning how to speak Spanish will help you communicate with the millions of Spanish-speakers in the US and Latin America. It will also help improve your memory and help you make friends more easily.

I've been helping people learn Spanish over the course of the last 15 years. In terms of my personal background, I'm from Venezuela, I've worked at Google and Amazon, and I have been in the education field for 10 years. Feel free to reach out if you'd like to see whether we're a good match!

About Daniel
My passion is helping people learn new skills. Nothing gets me more excited than seeing someone improve in something that I know will enhance their life.

In terms of my personality and teaching style, I'm very relaxed and make learning really fun--that's part of what enables learning to be effective!

In terms of my experience, I've been an educator for the last 10 years. I have also worked in education at Google, Amazon, and other well-known companies and won several awards for my educational strategies (E3 scholar, South by Southwest Scholar, Design, Art, Technology Award, Hermes Creative Award, and more). In terms of education, it's a BA from Brown University, a Master's from Carnegie Mellon, and an MBA from Wharton.

So... let's get to the things I love teaching most!

PIANO
I've been playing piano for 25+ years. When I first
started learning, I really struggled to motivate myself to practice, so I understand many of the challenges that beginners face when they take up the instrument. It's not easy! However, I've learned some strategies that make practicing fun and effective. I love motivating individuals to accomplish things they could only dream of. My particular specialty is helping people learn how to improvise and compose their own music. By being able to improvise, you'll be able to not only WOW your friends and family, but also have a greater appreciation and understanding of all the music you hear. You'll naturally also get better at music theory, and--once you're good--you'll have a feeling of satisfaction that is incredible.

SPANISH
Quieres hablar Español? Having learned four languages and taught many in the past, I've crafted a particular style for teaching people languages that takes into account the way that humans learn languages naturally. We'll converse and read about all your interests so that you can really enjoy it. It's really fun and you'll get to speak very quickly!
