Adult Spanish Classes With Lisa Pastor

MISSION STATEMENT

Adventures in Spanish 123 mission is to make Spanish language FUN and accessible to as many people as possible.
We celebrate 
culture, people and communication, not perfection.

We inspire students to travel and to engage with people from otherSpanish speaking countries with a sense of confidence and curiosity.



MY APPROACH


My teaching strategy is based on the fundamentals of “Comprehensible input”, research done by Stephen Krashen  Ph.D, and professor emeritus at the University of Southern California.

"Acquisition requires meaningful interaction in the target language - natural communication - in which speakers are concerned not with the form of their utterances but with the messages they are conveying and understanding."
-Stephen Krashen-

Some people teach "about" the Spanish language.  I teach my students to comprehend and communicate in the language.   

How?


At Adventures in Spanish 123, we focus on conversation, relevant, meaningful content, and successfully communicating your message in Spanish.  We don’t focus on grammar or perfection… until you are ready for it.

We incorporate a myriad of activities to learn Spanish:


  • Focus on top 100 most frequently used Spanish verbs.
  • We engage your whole body in acquiring the language.  This is called TPR (Total Physical Response)
  • Personalization.  We talk about YOU, and your interests and thoughts, in Spanish.
  • Story telling
  • Reading.  We read easy, interesting books.  Reading is key to learning a language!
  • Repetition- in novel,  creative, fun and crazy ways.
