We will work together following a communicative approach. That means you will have a leading role in the class, and we will focus on communicative tasks that will help you accomplish your goals. We will work on all four language skills (listening, writing, reading, and speaking) and your pronunciation.
Lessons for the Spanish General Course and DELE Preparation Course (Diploma de Español como Lengua extranjera) last for 55 minutes, whereas the Conversation Course will be 40 minutes long. Lessons take place on Zoom, a platform with interesting tools that will enable us to have a great one-on-one interaction and enjoy the class in a professional environment.
Lessons are tailored for you according to your needs and interests. That means we will only work with learning materials that will help you learn and keep you motivated. I will also take your teaching style into account as well as the skills you want to focus on the most.
We will only speak in Spanish throughout the whole duration of the class. The lessons are there for you to practice and I want you to make the most of them. However, we can occasionally speak in English, should you have any problems understanding a particular word or grammar point, especially if you are at a beginner level.
We will use a wide variety of learning materials that will help you learn Spanish in a natural way and gain a native insight into our culture. The books that we are going to use follow the guidelines described by the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) for all six reference levels: A1, A2, B1, B2, C1 and C2. We will also work with audiovisual materials and graded readers to enhance your vocabulary and review grammar points.
