During my years in Buenos Aires, not only I learned how to teach but also how to do it with holistic, creative, learning activities. Moreover, I'm a music and art enthusiast and I usually include these as teaching tools.
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.
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 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 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.
My approach is tailored to the student’s needs. Depending on the student, I create materials for them to engage with grammar and practice based on speaking, writing, reading, and listening (in a variety of accents, not only mine). Normally, I use videos, boardgames, working sheets, and units from learning books (including those I wrote).
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.
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 approach topics by • Level of the language • Personal interests • Selected interest topics • Introduction to the topic of interest. • Practical review with videos, songs, movies, discussions, articles, games or any material of interest.
I will create lesson plans and teaching materials, providing instruction, assigning homework, grading tests, making suggestions to students, maintaining classroom records, and motivate students. For the grammar we will follow the book Easy Spanish step by step and Develop listening, reading, speaking and writing skills by plenty of Spanish activities.
I follow five steps that help me organise the way I plan my lessons. STEP 1: Know my students' needs and talent This because It will help me choose my learning goals, topics, and teaching approaches adequately.
My teaching method is based on achieving a good level of Spanish through enjoyable methods, such as conversation, readings adapted to each student and audiovisual methods. I am learning a language myself, so I understand the difficulties that can arise as a student and how to deal with them.
I believe that teaching is not black and white, in order for your targeted audience to learn there has to be a variety of the style when presenting your information. In my teaching, I like to mix things up by utilising discussion, with presentations and a variety of group work, to further engage students.
My teaching method is a balance between an organised learning plan and the student's needs and interests. I base my lessons on oral communication and attractive tasks, since I think having a good time is really important when learning a foreign language. I like using visual material, social media, role plays and arts & crafts.
For children, learning have to pass by playing. I think it's the same for adolescents and adults. Learning has to be a pleasure if people went to progress. Well, I try to make my lesson as attractive and funny as possible thanks to games, musics, videos, magazine ... The structure of a lesson is : a previous check, discover the notion, entrainment and final check.
I focus my lessons in what the student needs. I also try to enforce and review the basis of the language. I try to do dynamic lessons with grammar exercises, writting skills and compression, reading and listening compression. Vocabulary divided by sections. Improvement of pronunciation and accent.
I like to teach according to the students.I mean, I work in all the different areas such as pronunciation, speaking, writing, listening... but always following the student needs. Not only in the academic way, but also according to their interests.
As an experienced teacher (more than 6 years) I have multiple resources and activities (games, tasks with images, rol playing, etc.) to make dynamic classes focus on different aspects of the spanish language (speaking, writing, vocabulary and grammar). Every class will have an introduction activity, a development activity and a closing activity that will be link together.
During my years as a Teacher, I implemented extensive improvements that resulted in the learning and success of my students. I taught myself new techniques over a weekend in order to obtain the best results with my students. I plan my lessons according to the learners needs and I use an experiencial method that allows the students toreach their own concepts.
My teaching method varies with the level of the student/s, trying to optimize the class. I use to give some homework such as reading books and watch movies/TV shows which increase the vocabulary exponentially. I base my classes after meeting the student/s and know what they want, what are their aims and what methodology is better for them.
I like to make all the students participate so I make games but always focusing on pronunciation and grammar. This two are really important for me. I also make students talks a lot in between them. Plus I play shorts videos to relate with the day's lesson.
My teaching method is a combination of what is usually implemented in schools with a dynamic approach to the different topic of each subject.
I base my classes on communicative, task-oriented and action-oriented approach, which means give great importance to the interactios as a method that promotes the participation of the student in the teaching / learning process. Learn the language in real contexts. On the other hand, it is argued that Students learn not only in the classroom, but also in authentic situations out of the classroom.
I like a to work in a fun and dynamic way to make learning easy and not tough as if you were in the school. We will focus on Vocabulary which is the basis of every language and Listening for the beginners, and Grammar, Reading and Speaking for those with prior knowledge.
practical lessons for beginners (tourists, business travelers, and those learning for their own enjoyment) with very little or no background in the language. Covers basic vocabulary, conversation, pronunciation, songs, and frequently used expressions.
I strongly believe that learning a language should be fun. Every student has a learning preference and the lessons will be based on that.
Communicative Method of teaching, which emphasizes the constant use of the Spanish language to advance in all areas of language improvement. Students are encouraged to speak and interact with me as much as possible in the classroom to utilize the language in a variety of contexts.
