Practical Spanish Course

withJackie G

Learn situation-specific language to help you improve your social skills in the Spanish language in social situations, such as travelling, attending a meeting, or a party.


What you'll learn

During our sessions you will be able to improve your Spanish fluency and hone your conversation skills to be used specifically in small talk before a business meeting; travelling to a Spanish-speaking country; ordering at a restaurant; interacting with doctors or nurses in a Spanish-speaking country; and so on. While comfortably engaged in relaxed conversation you will consolidate what you know but also build your vocabulary and polish your pronunciation and grammar as you come up with questions, which is the best time to learn the answers you need. I will encourage you to use your previous knowledge of Spanish in conversation and you will learn specific language for travelling and social gatherings through role-playing.

Your Teacher

Jackie G
I am an English-Spanish translator and teacher currently living in Spain. I first started teaching at NIU, Illinois, USA, as a Teaching Assistant, and once I graduated from my Master's degree I started to work as a Court interpreter and translator. After a few years I came to Spain, where I am teaching English and Spanish, while I still work as a translator (specialized in Psychology). Being a translator helps me better understand the process of learning a foreign language as an adult and develop my teaching and language coaching techniques. I enjoy researching and trying different techniques to create my classes and creating my own materials. On-line Teacher of English as a Second Language.
