I base my class on a modern language approach, such as natural approach and communicative approach. My teaching strategies take into account the level that the student has in order to make a lesson plan that is fit for their journey onto mastering the Spanish language. I use many visual, verbal, auditory and kinesthetic resources, which will simulate real day-to-day situations. My goal is to make sure the student is able to communicate by using all their abilities in talking, writing, reading and comprehending the Spanish language.
