If you want to make the most of your trips to Spain and Latin America, you need to make presentations in Spanish at work or if, simply, you enjoy learning this wonderful language in your free time, you are in the right place.
Many students hide behind their books thinking that if they master all the grammar they will speak better. Surely, they’ve seen all the episodes of La casa de papel, but they’re kinda awkward when they want some tapas in a bar and when they need directions to the Sagrada Familia. Typical, and completely normal.
I am lucky enough to make a living out of helping people from all over the world improve their pronunciation and communicative skills. I can help you do that interview for your dream job, talk to your Colombian in-laws without your voice shaking, and increase your confidence when you express yourself in Spanish. Your goals are the most important thing.
I offer you two gifts: one to learn How to pronounce the erre and my level tests, so you realize that you know more Spanish than you think. Subscribe to my newsletter and to have this and much more!
A different approach
It is possible that, even though you already know a lot, you are still embarrassed to speak in Spanish, especially with natives.
In my experience as a teacher, I have found that a large part of the students prefer to learn Spanish by talking and communicating orally. This is not a surprise to almost anyone, since just thinking about how we learned languages at school brings flashbacks of endless hours completing the workbook.
Ironically, Horwitz suggested in 86′ in a study that public speaking and communicating with others in a foreign language is one of the biggest sources of anxiety for students, and Rubio corroborated this in 2004. Sounds familiar, doesn’t it?
In short, many people who have been studying for years and are able to understand almost everything they read do not feel safe when talking to other people. What a shame!
I also study languages, and I know that sometimes we think that our accent is too strong or that we have a hard time finding the right words.
I’m sorry to tell you that we’ll probably always have some accent when we speak a foreign language. That’s just how it works, and whoever tells you otherwise is lying to your face. However, incredible results can be achieved when working specifically on pronunciation. And this is what I have helped my students with the most.
If you want to check it out, subscribe and get a gift with which you will improve your pronunciation from today. From there, we can work together and achieve your most ambitious goals. In my gift Cómo pronunciar erre, you can find:
- The Holy Grail of Spanish pronunciation;
- where to put your tongue to improve your errrrre in less than two minutes;
- a tongue twister to impress all the natives;
- the greatest difficulty of students and how to solve it;
- an exercise to practice your hearing discrimination.
Don’t believe me, believe my students
I don’t want you to think this is too good to be true, so I leave you a couple of screenshots of the latest surveys of my students so you can see what they think of me:
Finally, the most important thing:
Teaching is reminding others that they know just as well as you.Richard Bach
How right Richard Bach was. We all have the ability to learn and improve, but sometimes it takes someone to give a helping hand. Here I offer you mine.
