ENGLISH CONVERSATION : improve your skills by practicing with an American Family.

Methodology

-Conversation is only improved by practice.
-Each student is different. We do formative assessment (daily) to detect students' needs.
-Starting with your favorite subjects, we make you feel comfortable speaking at any level.
-We expand your vocabulary. We can focus on your work/study subject(s).
-We will enhance your phrasal structure, so as to sound more natural.
-Students tend to think in their native language. We provide you with hints to substitute wrong expressions that you speak in English while thinking in your native language, for the corresponding correct ones, closer to what a native English speaker would use. Examples: a)Spanish speakers tend to say: "I have 25 years" (because they translate it from 'tengo 25 años de edad', in Spanish), whereas the correct construction, in English, is: "I'm 25 years old". b) Brazilian Portuguese teachers, after carnival, will ask you: "do you want to know/see my fantasy"? Do not get offended (they don't mean what it seems). They mean: "do you want to see a picture of my carnival costume"? And so forth.

Background

-I teach English and Spanish since I was 21 years old. I started with adults in a business setting.

-Master's Degree in Legal & Business English.

-CELTA Cambridge English Language Teacher's Certificate

-ILEC Cambridge LEGAL & Business English Certificate

-I specialized in children while teaching English for Mexicans (and other nationalities) in the USA and Spanish for Americans: Elementary, Middle and High Public Schools System.

-English for Foreigners - Community Centers - USA.
-English for Brazilians: children, teenagers and adults.
-Three years teaching College classes.

CLASSES ARE ALWAYS "FUN" (DIVERTIDAS). Except if you need a crash course to prepare for TOEFL, LEGAL OR BUSINESS ENGLISH (that is taught in the same context you'd speak it in real life (i.e., a business environment).
