Other Spanish Requests From Students Like You
I took Spanish during eight and ninth grade. Only the bare minimum stuck. I backpacked through Mexico for two months and learned a lot but my fluency is very rough. I need to bone up on my vocabulary, learn to use articles correctly, work on my verb tenses, etc. I have a fairly solid base but it needs serious polishing.
My daughter is in 8th grade, taking the 2nd half of level one Spanish. She is struggling and I know that without the foundation she will never be able to keep up. We would be looking for a tutor in the afternoon/evenings or if need be on the weekends.
I would like to be fluent in conversational Spanish and complete sentences. I understand and speak some words, but it's mostly Spanglish.
My dad and I are looking to start Spanish lessons 2 or more times a week. My dad is going to Spain in February and is also a general contractor so that's his main reason for wanting to learn Spanish. I want to re-learn/expand my Spanish abilities.
