My teaching approach is based on the concept of communicative competence which aims that students, by the end of a language level, be able to perform well in a real language setting. I give priority to the student's interests and needs, so the classes can be meaningful for each learner.
My teaching method is basic, I make it easy to adapt for anyone who wishes to learn..... but it works both ways, anyone wishing to learn must find their self confidence in order to make it happen.
My teaching method is adaptive to my students' learning abilities! I tend to establish a trustworthy environment where the most effective learning tools for each individual student are explored and applied. I approach topics according to students' goals and priorities.
Lessons are focused in the develop of the expression skills (writing and speaking). Every lesson is adapted to reach the student's personal goal by taking advantage on their skills and personal preferences. Every class has a grammar approach; so the student can improve not only in their vocabulary, but also in the correct use of the language in diverse contexts.
I usually teach my lesson using task based approaches, always giving priority to the student's interests and learning needs. I designed my student's learning process based on the notion of the communicative competence, briefly defined as the capacity of the student to use the language in context.
My teaching method is rather informal. I start by having a quick chat with you to assess your current level and in which areas you will need to improve. I love making people chat, so I am always asking questions related to your interest. I truly believe that you can learn by having fun.
I approach topic by a combination of dynamics (pragmatic methodology) with children, easy games, storytelling and a mutual feedback at the end of the lesson. The starting point is getting to know their wishes and needs to attend to the types of intelligence and work on it.
To help my lessons I use methods and instructional material from "Instituto Cervantes", I teach the student grammar and how write it, but also I put emphasis on comunication skills, expresions and a little on Spanish culture to immerse the student in the real language.
My classes are based on the learning guide 'Dos Mundos', which is the resource I used throughout my studies at University. In the first lesson we will ascertain your competency level and work from there. My lessons are also supplemented with interesting readings, travel discussions, and cultural notes.
My teaching method is active and dynamic, i always look for active participation of the students so they can improve their speaking skills. Grammar is also very important but I teach it in a creative way.
My teaching method will be decided with the student/s depending on the fields of interest. One of my favourite structure is based on a first part learning some vocabulary, then a little bit of grammar and finally some useful sentences combining both.
I apply a communicative approach. This means that lessons are marked by interaction and meaningful communication at a customised pace for all ages and student's specific purposes.
As my teaching methodology I use non conventional dynamics to let your learning easy. I think it´s important to use didactic and graphic tools for a good teaching exercise. I like to give face to face classes for a better understanding and easier learning. I complement my knowledge with current researches or the RAE (The Real Academia Española) about the correct usage of Spanish language.
I try to make my lessons interesting. When the student feels motivate and positive. I combinate grammatic, reading, listening and speaking lessons. Sometimes is so boring only study grammatic as an oldfashioned school. I use material like videos and audios on interesting topics. Is very important to me that my student feel confident whit me. In that way, they can ask any question.
First, I want to know what is the reason and motivation of the student(s) to learn Spanish, whether they have some bases, and what is their objective. After that, we can arrange the classes to follow that goal, give some basic knowledge and build from there. I like to practise and ensure previous lessons with games.
In general, each class is divided into two parts: in the first stage a conversation is established according to the topics that the student expressed interest, and about which I as a teacher must be previously informed, and then dynamic activities are proposed according to the Spanish level of each person.
- I use my own books, handouts for written and comprehension practices, - I use images/pictures methods for students to describe whats in the picture speaking in Spanish - Live training speaking spanish with me or introduce spanish friends or community (filed trip) for student to learn latin america culture and language practice.
I'm a very fun and motivated person who loves that her students learn throughout a funny and entertaining way.
I like to tailor my classes to each person depending on what they would like to achieve with their Spanish. My first lesson usually consists of understanding what is your previous knowledge and what are the main areas you would like to focus on. I also like to know what are the ways you like to learn or find it easier to retain information.
Mostly my classes are personalised for the student(s) on how the individual learns. Alerting all the senses to a new language is vital for an overall understanding. Firstly I use a system to find out what level someones spanish is. After that I guide them through playful structured lessons with objectives that reach our goals.
my clases usually are 2 hours long. in the first hour we work in writing and do practical excersises that are good structured and in the second hour we make a fun activity. everithing is oriented to your special needs and preferences.
My teaching method is mainly practical and consists of building conversational ability. I believe that the best way to learn a language is through listening and speaking it. My teaching style is better suited to those just starting out their Spanish speaking journey, however, I am very capable of serving as a speaking coach to those looking to improve an already solid base.
I consider that the best way to learn is by exploring several approaches of an specific topic. I like to develop the hability of self- learning on my students and to be critic about many aspects of live as posible.
My name is Alba and I am 25 years old, native Spanish teacher graduated in the University of Barcelona (UB). I believe in interactive and fun lessons. I base my lessons in students necessities, each person needs to improve different skills, and my task as a teacher is to adapt the lesson structure to each student, so in my teaching methodology the student is the focus.
My teaching method is a direct one, trying to get students familiar with daily situations and teach them how to strive even if they have few resources to do so. I like to teach in a participative way, where everybody feels integrated in the lesson and people are enjoying and having fun.
My lessons are suitable for those who want to improve their spoken and written spanish. Mainly beginners and intermediate students. I have deep knowledge of the language and can help with vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation. My teaching methods are focused on understanding the needs of the students, first of all, and then develop methods and exercises in order to let them improve.
My lessons are geared toward the students who want to start learning Spanish from scratch(for any purpose) or who have Spanish as foreign language in their curriculum. The lesson structure will be - 1. Importance of Spanish 2. Alphabets 3. Numbers 4. Seasons, Months & Days of the week. 5. How to say time in Spanish! 6. Daily greetings. 7. Verbs & their conjugation 8. Vocabulary 9.
I am native Spanish, so I am confident to teach both written/grammar focused classes or oral/vocabulary improving ones. I've had cases where parents wanted me to do fun activities and games for kids to engage with the language and others that preferred to continue with what they were learning on school.
I plan and adapt lessons' programs according to students individual needs and goals, keeping them focused and motivated throughout all the teaching-learning process. I like to try different approaches and teaching styles to find out what fits best with each student.
My teaching method focuses on grammar, conversation and experiential learning in addition to fostering a cultural understanding of the Hispanic world.
