Spanish language and culture by a passionate travel professional who loves Cuba, the EU and India!

Methodology

My teaching method is based on what I've mentioned in my background. I favor using basic vocabulary and grammar guidelines, and that we build slow from a solid base. Language lives in speaking it, and while written usage is important for education and for business, I believe new learners of Spanish benefit from and better remember conversations and live experiences with food, music and dance than memorizing textbook lessons.

Background

I am trained as a journalist and have worked in travel and corporate services for 20 years. Obsessed with Cuba, I traveled there 10 times and co-produced a documentary in the early 2000s. I have used my Spanish to work with clients at various fortune 500 countries. I base my teaching method from Professor Gustavo Calderon at San Francisco State University, whom I studied with for 4 years as part of my Spanish Language minor. We favor an immersive method by which we converse in Spanish, read and watch movies with subtitles, enjoy music and dance, and explore the various cuisines. Mexico of course is a huge influence, but there are other aspects to be learned from Spain, from Central America, and from Colombia, Chile, Argentina, Peru, Venezuela and other South American nations. El Mar Caribe and the cultures of Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic and Cuba are extraordinary. The profound influence of the Yoruba people of Africa on Spanish language and culture of the New World must be understood to appreciate the richness and strength of these peoples.
