What you'll learn

During our sessions you will be able to improve your Spanish fluency and hone your conversation skills in different settings through: - Role-playing: small conversation before a business meeting; travelling to a Spanish-speaking country; ordering at a restaurant; interacting with doctors or nurses in Spanish; and so on. - Discussing a variety of topics of your choice: movies, books, current issues, business, or anything that comes to mind. 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 bringing up topics that will engage your interest and make you comfortable. I will make sure you enjoy your classes, and you stay motivated to learn, which is our top priority. We will build on your fluency together and I will keep giving you feed-back and corrections as needed, while introducing new idiomatic expressions, collocations and formal clichés used in business or socializing situations. I will help you build your vocabulary and push you to use it in conversation as well as in short and quick exercises, sometimes gently leading you into an engaging conversation, sometimes demanding full focus on a specific grammar point, pronunciation exercise, or anything I might identify as needing extra work. We will work with materials I bring as well as materials and topics you may bring, with total flexibility to change gears to suit your preferences and needs. We can work together on your work presentations, e-mails and meeting preparations, or talk about any issues of your interests in or just about anything that comes to mind.

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.
