How do you learn Spanish?

  1. Spanish for free. Now a days, you learn some Spanish words in movies, on the internet, songs, TV series etc. To learn Spanish you need lots of motivation, dedication and discipline. Think how good is going to feel when you talk in Spanish to your friends or even are able to work in a Spanish Speaking country.  (Many of my students have done this,  from cero Spanish to fluent Spanish, I’m so proud of all of them)
  2. For more motivation you have me! I’m the patient teacher that will celebrate any of your progress. You repeat nice and laud after me and you do your homework.
  3. Discipline, you have to be strong about your discipline. Your hours for Spanish are for Spanish, you can not book yourself to do other things in this hours.
  4. Never miss a lesson. If you can not come on your date, you attend the next session in the week for your level or Zoom me from anywhere in the world.
  5. I look forward to see you in my lessons. I will teach you Spanish and we will have fun!
