My teaching methodology is based on passion, I already speak three languages, I believe the only to learn Spanish is by first loving the language, enjoying reading, speaking, writing and listen it; therefore I would recommend a immersive experience.
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.
I believe language is merely a tool for communication, consequently all of my lessons are focused on speaking/listening skills, with writing and reading taking a supportive role. The specific content taught and practiced changes according to you and your interests/needs. Prefer to keep classes fun, interesting, and interactive.
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 method includes theoretical and practical lessons at the same time, with always new exercises and games. In my teaching there is also an approach to spanish and hispanic america literature and philosophical tradition. I also offer my students a series of free activities to get to the heart of spanish culture.
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.
In my classes, I seek to speak Spanish as much as possible and encourage you to do the same. Of course, I will adapt this to your level and translate in English after I speak. I will adapt my lessons according to what you would like to learn, but try to teach you phrases and concepts that are used in everyday conversations.
The first step will be to get to know each other, establish empathy and a friendly learning enviroment. The main goal will be to have fun! - I believe, and studies have shown, that this is the best way to learn. Sessions will have a pre-determined but flexible structure, in which the student can anticipate tasks.
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.
• I have an Advance level of fluency both in English and Spanish. This allows me to be in a better position to understand and solve the difficulties and issues that students may have. • Use of technological tools (computer aided teaching tools, laboratories, etc.) to reinforce and complement teaching. • Good planning, organisation and time management skills.
My teaching method is based on speaking and grammar.
I am familiarised with different teaching methods such as Total Physical Response (TPR) and Task-based Learning (TBL). I have a Communicative Approach to teaching. I think that the best way of learning a language naturally is by creating opportunities for students to use the language genuinely in different situations.
My teaching method is making bite sized but complete lessons that inspire and motivate the learner to gain knowledge in an entertaining way!
I know how discouraging learning a foreign language can be. That's why I always use learning methods that are enjoyable and engaging, combining theory with games and real-life situations in which what we learnt can be applied. I always adapt the lessons to the progress and necessities of the students, either with a focus on speaking (both formal and informal), vocabulary, grammar and/or writting.
My methodology is creative, giving importance to the topics and to the participation of the students. The comprehension and clarification of the themes through visual, written and reading tools. I was guided in the research methodology, where it is important that each student look for sources of references and share opinions through theories.
I do not have a defined methodology. Every individual has a different learning curve when it comes to languages, and it can vary dramatically from person to person. My purpose is to understand the pace of the student's learning, to guarantee a fully understanding of the subject.
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.
I base my classes depending on what would you like to learn. If you want to learn Spanish to travel will focus on travel vocabulary and constructions but starting with the basics. I think is very important to talk and reach an agreement on how you would love to learn and start from there onwards.
I have extensive experience in teaching with great results. My way is always based on the motivation of the students, which allows me to do the dynamic classes as possible at the same time as they can learn.
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.
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.
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 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.
The teaching methodology I use is to be a guide for the student, a support, the student decides what he wants to learn and where he wants to learn.
