This class is a follow-up to any of my Reading Spanish is Easy classes or for any student that has already learned how to read in Spanish. Each week, students will take turns reading a short fictional or non-fiction story. The stories are 8 pages total, with approximately 3-5 words per page, 20-50 words per story. With a maximum of 7 students, each student will have the opportunity to read at least one page out loud. Throughout the class, I will help guide students through the correct...

I am bilingual in English and Spanish. I started learning Spanish in High School, taking 2 years of Spanish classes in High School and 1 year of Spanish classes at DePaul University. Those classes helped me to build a great foundation in reading fluently in Spanish and speaking the language. For the past 20+ years, I have immersed myself in the Spanish language and culture. Most native Spanish speakers are amazed when they hear me read and speak Spanish because they say I do so without an English accent. Why take this class with me? Because I am not a native Spanish speaker. This may sound a little odd to some, but let me explain: As a Spanish language learner myself, I understand the complications that native English speakers have when learning to read and speak Spanish. This makes me relatable and effective. I can explain things in a way that makes sense to English-speaking learners. When I began learning Spanish over 20 years ago, I learned how to read quickly. Even though I was too shy to speak Spanish for many years, I could read so fluently that people were shocked to learn that I didn't speak it well. Now I can read, comprehend, and speak Spanish at a B2 level. I have been teaching Spanish classes virtually for the past 3 years. Many students who have taken my class did not know any Spanish at first and by the end of the school year can now confidently read in Spanish and hold a basic conversation.
