Spanish Language Learning Aids

Whether you’d like to help your child with their French or Spanish Homework; just want to navigate the foreign food aisles more competently…or to impress friends with your ability to read the menu at French and Italian restaurants  –   learning a second language has distinct advantages. 

Studies show that multi-lingual people can frequently outscore those who speak only one language on tests of verbal and nonverbal intelligence. 

Some tests also indicate that when children are adequately exposed to two languages at an early age they can reach higher levels of cognitive development at an earlier age than their monolingual peers.

It’s no wonder that prospective employers see fluency in a second language as desirable.  It’s not only a practical asset; but one that signals a cultured individual willing to make an intellectual effort to go the extra mile.   If you’d like to improve your brain power…boost your resume to the top of pile –  and if you believe that ’smart’  is the new ‘rich’  – consider learning a second language. 

It’s easier than you think.  You can start to speak a new language in only ten days using the Pimsleur Approach.  Developed by Paul Pimsleur, an internationally-respected language expert – this approach is completely audio; so you learn the way you first learned language as a child.

Pimsleur’s courses were developed over the course of 40 years.  So that today you can learn another language while you’re just relaxing, or on the go: Materials are available in MP3 format and iPod compatible. The FBI purchased the Pimsleur Approach.  It’s earned unanimous praise from PBS to the Daily News and Forbes Magazine:  

  • ◦Forbes Magazine:  The Pimsleur Approach … boil[s] down the essential elements of a foreign language so that beginners can acquire basic skills immediately…”
  • ◦Daily News: “Learn French while commuting, German while jogging, Spanish while cooking all with no written materials!”
  • ◦American Way: “Learn to habla espanol or parlez francais before your next trip abroad…The interactive lessons challenge students to use new words in conversation instead of memorize them.”

 Or currently there’s a special sale:  For only $9.95, (regularly $19.95) + plus free shipping. Click here to get the deal

Please Note – Only Limited Quantities Available:  Order today to receive 8 fluency-oriented language lessons on 4CDs, iPod, or Mps.

Perfect weather. Pristine waters. Spectacular scenery. Soaring architecture. Exotic wildlife. Exuberant nightlife. And a distinctive procession of vintage automobiles. This is not just another island getaway. This is the Dominican Republic.

The real Dominican Republic is vibrant mix of history and music, poetry and passion, adventure and astonishingly rich culture. Christopher Columbus called it “the most beautiful land human eyes have ever seen.” But don’t take his word for it. Discover it for yourself.

The Samaná Bay twice and I think it is the most spectacular place in the  Dominican Republic. It has almost isolated beaches with white sands and a few
hotels.  Sosua shares the best beach award with the beaches of Isla Saona.  Samana is a combination of mountains, beaches and waterfalls. A complete ecological scenary not seen in Punta Cana for example and if you learn Spanish? way better,there are tons of  Spanish learning aids too.  You better hurry because we consider that this place it will be the next  greatest tourist destination of the Island, so enjoy it while you can!

Learn Spanish outside of classroom

Approaches to Learning Outside the Classroom

Two common approaches are (i) Field Teaching and (ii) Field Research.

Field Teaching

•Study of topic or theme in class. Teacher talk, textbook study, note taking, slide viewing, videos, etc.

•Field observations (often teacher directed). Recording of information in the field. Some field interpretation.

•Back in the classroom – further interpretation and explanation together – writing up field report.

Field Research

•Identification of a problem as the result of direct observations; or from class work; or from special interests of students.

•Formulation of an hypothesis as a result of reading, discussion, thinking.

•Field activities to collect data to test hypothesis.

•Data analysis – processing information.

•Hypothesis testing – accept or reject.

•Discussing and writing up of possible ways to solve the originally identified problem using information gathered in the field.

I alsoI prefer the Michel Thomas as you are involved as part of the class and you can laugh at Michel Thomas constantly correcting a fellow student!

Toronto, ON Spanish Classes

Conversation in Spanish

 

Learn Spanish

There are many Canadian citizens for instance with Dominican Republic , Cuban and South America backgrounds and heritage  in Canada. It is a fact that in the US more than 37 million citizens in the United States are bilingual in Spanish. That is more than one out of every 7 people. This is why it makes sense to research Spanish language tuition services  and consider the online Spanish classes in Toronto.

 

Where are the small Spanish classes near Toronto located? Be sure you don’t have to travel too far. It could be that a software CD for learning Spanish  is a better option. Use our website to research everything from learning Spanish as a beginner to the length of sessions before deciding.

You shouldn’t get frustrated if you are surrounded by people who speak Spanish, but have virtually no English skills. A sensible way to get them into the English-speaking culture in which they live is for you to impress them by mastering some – or a great deal – of their language via the Spanish institute classes in Toronto. You can also consider the best Spanish tutor in Toronto  for training.

 

Trying to find the interactive Spanish lessons or the Spanish lesson in Toronto? Are you trying to read up on Spanish lessons for police officers? The good news is that Memberlodge through HP has the info you are searching for.  Search our website to find out about reading Spanish newspapers, and locate the Toronto Spanish language lessons and the Spanish class for children.

If you are interested  in teaching Spanish or Espanol tutors and would like to add your information to our  Canadian Spanish diretory, please contact us

Self Language Learner: Studing Spanish on Your Own

  • For many working adults, using “home study” conversational Spanish courses is a better option. These courses work around your schedule, so you can study lessons when it’s convenient to you. As most modern conversational  Spanish courses use a combination of audio and written text resources, it is also possible to listen and study where ever you are. For example, many people listen to their  Spanish lessons while jogging, or during their daily commute. This makes it possible to get something valuable out of time that would normally be wasted stressing about traffic and trying to make it to work on time.
  • The cost of home study  Spanish courses varies, but in general they are a good value compared with the expense of taking classes, and a mere drop in the bucket when compared to the cost of hiring a private  Spanish tutor to come to your home.
  • So it’s clear that conversational  Spanish courses allow greater flexibility for a very reasonable price, but are they as effective as taking night classes? The short answer is, yes and no. Everyone is unique, and we all learn and a slightly different way. Because of this, some people will probably learn better in a classroom environment.
  • But other people will learn just as well — or even better — when allowed to study at their own pace using guided audio examples, such as those found in most modern conversational  Spanish courses. At the end of the day, only you can tell which study method is right for you. But for most people, home study conversational  Spanish courses make a lot of sense, and provide an easy way to become proficient in conversational  Spanish quickly.

SPANISH LANGUAGE IMMERSION TRIPS IN DOMINICAN REPUBLIC

When you travel, you don’t need an app, guidebook, or gadget to show you where to find authentic, local experiences. In the quest for cultural immersion, a critical factor– if not the most important factor– is language.   I’m a big believer in learning the local language

By learning the local language, I’ve been able to transcend the label of just another tourist. If you show an interest in communicating with locals, they’re more inclined to take you seriously. It

Consider making language learning the cornerstone of your travels by enrolling in local language classes abroad. Here’s how to get started.

The ultimate Spanish language immersion experience is living with a host family* that doesn’t speak your language, especially if they have children
