I am a certified and experienced Spanish and literature teacher. My studies took place in Argentina and Venezuela. I have been working all my life teaching Spanish at different education levels. Because of my long experience, I know how to work with teenagers and college students. Nowadays, language studies are aimed at giving students communication skills, and it is always important to have such skills handy if they're ever necessary. All students must know that each language has four important areas which are, reading, writing, listening and speaking. All of them must be combined to finally learn the selected language.
As for my methods, let me say that they can vary according with the student and his/her background knowledge of the language, his/her strengths and his/her weaknesses. Obviously, it will be necessary to test the student with a short evaluation before we begin our lessons.
I use to teach Spanish to many High School students in Sugar Land, so I know perfectly, the Fort Bend Curricula for all the Spanish Levels. I even handle the Book REALIDADES and the webs.
At the same time, I'm attending adults students which interest in learning Spanish is related with the Companies where they work at. Their goals are different to the other students, so in those cases, our emphasis will be done over the communication and oral skills.
I am a literature teacher who loves to read and analyze the different texts. Literature has always been connected with the world's history and the human beings. Reading the world's literature can teach any student the way to understand the world we live in.
There are billions of Spanish speakers around the world and they have some particularities that distinguish them one from the others. But, I think that is better to learn the original Spanish first and, after that, if students want to do it, they will be able to recognize some of the regional Spanish. I always reassure the practice of the four areas of language in my classes: reading, writing, speaking and listening. I believe that it is the most important method to learn a language.
