Would you like to speak Spanish, the second most studied language in the world? With your private teacher's online classes, you will learn one of the most important and beautiful languages on the pla

Methodology

We begin the first class with a brief, but necessary introduction. Then we evaluate your knowledge by identifying your strengths and weaknesses. To finish this first class, we will define what your essential objective is to learn Spanish; this phase is especially important to optimize the pedagogical strategy. We will then design the final course programme - adapted to your profile - so that you can learn the language correctly.

During the classes we will work in parallel on the four skills needed to master a language and required in all international exams: reading comprehension, listening comprehension, oral expression, and written expression.

Firstly, we will start with a truly clear and precise explanation of the grammatical rules; we will continue with key expressions and terms from the Spanish vocabulary. In order to work on reading comprehension and oral expression, we will do readings in Spanish (according to the level you have) which will also allow you to have a valuable contact with the Spanish American culture; furthermore, you will be able to have fun or get instructed with easy to remember stories, and, familiarize yourself with the vocabulary of this language through direct association with drawings (in the case of those who are beginning to read). Also, by reading aloud, you will improve your Spanish pronunciation, progressively eliminating foreign accents.

Before the end of each class, I will propose a dictation of 10 sentences to exercise the written expression and, to finish, I will recommend specific exercises according to the student's performance or progress; likewise, I will recommend watching some animated TV series and movies to practice listening comprehension.

Watching cartoons in Spanish is a highly recommended activity to familiarize yourself with the vocabulary that you will associate directly with the images and at the same time it will help you train your ear to the sound of Spanish, its correct pronunciation and to recognize the words. The cartoons are designed for children, so the characters speak slowly and clearly, and you will have the opportunity to learn everyday vocabulary and expressions. Likewise, if you are at a beginner's level, I recommend you watch the films in their original version with subtitles in your native language and then, once you have seen them in their original version, I recommend you watch them with Spanish subtitles.

Background

I learned Spanish at home. Later I strengthened my knowledge of the language in my school days, in high school and in the career, I studied at the Universidad Javeriana in Bogotá. In other words, I am a native speaker of this language since, although I was born in Italy and am the daughter of an Italian father, I have lived most of my years in Venezuela and Colombia and am the daughter of a Colombian mother.

I am a Master of Fine Art, I have knowledge and experience in the plastic emphasis, in the study of the history of art and aesthetics for the theoretical formation of an artist. Besides art, I am a reader of humanistic themes. Due to my affinity with the humanistic universe, I include an intercultural component in my classes related to social aspects and Hispanic American culture. I feel a great affection and vocation for teaching, in fact, I give, in addition to Spanish, piano lessons, Italian, French and English.

Elena is a very skilled pianist. Her passion for music allows her to transmit her knowledge in a professional way. She is the right teacher for both newbies and people who want to improve their skills. I couldn’t recommend her more highly as a piano teacher.
