I have been studying Spanish for eight years. I began by attending classes at Tarrant County College. I attended language schools twice in Mexico. I have a good understanding of basic Spanish grammar. In my spare time, I attend Spanish conversation groups in the Fort Worth area as well as continuing adult education classes so that I can improve my knowledge of Spanish.

I have been studying Spanish for eight years. I began by attending classes at Tarrant County College. I attended language schools twice in Mexico. I have a good understanding of basic Spanish grammar. In my spare time, I attend Spanish conversation groups in the Fort Worth area as well as continuing adult education classes so that I can improve my knowledge of Spanish.

At the Spanish conversation group meetings, we practice with each other to improve and I help beginners with their Spanish. I am a volunteer at the Fort Worth library where we have Spanish conversation group meetings.

I have no issue with someone who is only interested in "tourist Spanish." That is, only learning what to say in certain situations. This approach, however, does not create a foundation so that the student is able to progress very far.

In my opinion, if someone is serious about learning Spanish, then it is necessary to have a good understanding of Spanish grammar. A knowledge of proper grammar and verb conjugations is critical. Therefore, I stress the learning of verbs and basic grammar so that the student can build on a sound foundation and progress on his/her own when a more experienced teacher is unavailable. In addition, reading short stories and doing workbook exercises help to learn grammar and increase vocabulary.

I do not think a student can make sufficient progress by only attending classes or being tutored. I think a student should make the most of spare time by watching television shows in Spanish or trying to read a Spanish language newspaper. By combining these activities with regular instruction, satisfactory progress is possible.

If you are a beginner with little or no knowledge of Spanish, I can help you get started.
