Conversational Spanish Small Group Sessions in DC, Maryland and Virginia

Posted by www.SPANISHblackbelt.com

SPANISH black belt™ gives you the option of joining speakers with the same ability/belt color in Conversational Spanish Small Group Tutoring Sessions in DC, MD and VA. Whether Spanish Black Belt forms the group or whether you choose to gather your peers and form your own group, these sessions allow you to improve your Spanish communicational abilities alongside people at a similar level of mastery. The close direction and supervision of your qualified native Spanish speaking tutor helps you acknowledge and overcome your weaknesses as you build Spanish mastery. these tutors know how to teach well in a results-oriented environment, have access to carefully gathered material, and utilize methods that have been proven and that adapt to the needs of each of our students.

Conversational Spanish Small Group Tutoring Sessions in DC, Va and MD are custom-designed to quickly lead you to Spanish proficiency while sharing the fun - and cost - with few other students. Limited group size of up to 4 students per session increases the degree of customization and speeds your progress. You pay less than the price of Tailored One-on-One Spanish Instruction, but still benefit from a closely focused learning experience. Conversation Spanish Small Group Tutoring Sessions in DC, VA and MD currently have an amazingly small size of two to four students, a size that fosters your learning and promotes personal interaction. Sharing classes with a small group of other highly motivated students is a great way to expand your knowledge of Spanish and expand your personal network.

Practicing in a group matched by ability has several distinct advantages. Group sessions can be comforting and inspirational because you see other students working through the same language challenges you are tackling. It also helps everyone to learn from each other’s mistakes. Other non-native speakers understand what you are accomplishing and have lots of patience as you speak because, believe it or not, they’re gaining just as much from listening to you as you are from practicing speaking.

Conversational Spanish Small Group sessions are a much better off alternative than studying at community colleges and languages institutes offering formal Spanish classes. These colleges and institutes may offer sessions that in the surface appear cheaper. They are not. They are not simply because what you can accomplish in one hour of instruction through one of our very small groups is much more than through them. There are not just words. It obeys to an intrinsic fact. While attending sessions given at colleges and traditional language institutes you will be matched with up to 15-20 other students as opposed to just 3 others like we do. This class size difference has profound implications. Instruction at colleges and traditional language institutes because of their size have no alternative but to offer lecture-style classes that focus a lot on grammar and little in practice and conversation. What ends up happening after finishing a term with them is that you may understand some grammar but on the other hand you end up not even being able to conduct a minimum conversation in Spanish. Please apologize for our radical view but Spanish knowledge of grammar we believe is worth nothing if you do not know how to use it in real conversations. Besides all theory learned without really understanding how to use it in the real world is easily forgotten. Think about those classes you took at school that lack of opportunities to understand their real implications in life and work. Think about how much of that knowledge you recall now.

Our sessions are entirely practical, interesting and focused on developing your conversational skills, mostly in what regards to improving your speaking and listening skills faster than anywhere else in the area. SPANISH black belt™'s small group sessions of up to 4 individuals at a time allows you to benefit from a lot of airtime as you will be speaking with your tutor extensively. You are no longer a passive expectant in class hiding behind another student.

Sometimes we are contacted by individuals who ask us why is it that we charge more per hour of instruction than other colleges or traditional language schools. Well... the answer is simple. It's all a matter of size. Colleges and traditional schools put you in a classroom with 15-20 other students all having a wide knowledge of the Spanish language. We instead match you with up to three other individuals that share your same fluency level and schedule preferences. You can only split the total cost of instruction with up to three other individuals (as opposed to with 15-20) but you end up learning at an speed that can be perhaps up to 4 times faster...with enough practice that allows you to put your knowledge into practice from day one. That's is a fact we see everyday.

Our small group sessions are full of essence. They provide you with a lot of practical knowledge and tips that will allow you not only to understand the logic behind the language but to be able to recall what you learn and utilize what you are learning in many practical ways. Don't be fooled by independent tutors that post informal ads promoting their services for a low fee. Truth is that most of those independent tutors come and go, they do not have experience teaching, they are in the US just a short period of time, or they are doing it without no formal training only until they get another job. Don't pay for this type of service. You don't need to pay someone in DC, Maryland and Virginia to practice with your Spanish. That may have been the case several years ago. Not anymore. A city in which the Hispanic population is growing 4 times faster than any other group provides you with plenty of opportunities to put your Spanish into practice for free while at the same time contributing to the better being of the hispanic communities in the greater DC metropolitan area. If what you want is just practice what you already know please look for volunteer opportunities that require your skills and your knowledge of Spanish. Don't know where to find them? Contact us and we will be glad to provide you with a list of them. If in contrast what you want is to improve your knowledge of Spanish at a fast pace, learn different strategies that will allow you to recall what you learn, and acquire a solid foundation and knowledge of the logic behind the language please consider our Small Group sessions. Our 100% total satisfaction guarantee will make you not regret your decision.

Forget those boring textbooks and stodgy professors lecturing behind podiums. You will be communicating face to face with your native Spanish speaking tutor, discussing topics that you choose. Our courses are interesting because they integrate your life – your interests, passions and career - with your studies.

You might already have a working knowledge of Spanish, but with a few holes in your skill set. Maybe you can speak like a black belt, but you have trouble writing. If you’re strong in some areas and weak in others we can focus exclusively on the specific skills you need to improve. Every moment you spend in sessions with your Spanish tutor is entirely practical. You will be using Spanish in engaging exercises and activities that will prepare you to communicate with confidence in any situation. When a weakness or problem area is identified, your native Spanish speaking tutor takes the time to explain the theory you need to master the Spanish language. We focus on the skills that you haven't yet acquired or those that might be a little rusty to avoid wasting time reviewing concepts that you have already internalized.

You are no longer a passive expectator in class hiding behind another student.




Our tutoring approach ADAPTS to what works best for you

Because each single student is different, we use a different approach/method for each of them based on her prior learning experiences, current needs and learning styles. Depending on this, you may or may not use books, have an emphasis, emphasize on using visuals, practice through exercises, follow a deductive method, receive full immersion sessions, be explained hard concepts in english, use role plays, etc.



We take responsibility in MOTIVATING & COACHING you

One of the key reasons for a language student’s failure to excell in a Spanish course is a decrease in motivation. You may get busy at work, you may get discouraged by prior failure to reach goals, or by apparent lack of success. Because all our Spanish lessons are individualized, we can assess your needs and give the praise, encouragement, coaching and advice needed to motivate you to success. We will inspire you to do better, faster, and smarter than anyone else. We help you overcome your difficulties and surpass your Spanish language barriers…precisely when you think you have reached a wall.




We meet at CONVENIENT TIMES and LOCATIONS that adapt to your schedule

Are you an early riser or do you feel more communicative in the evening? Maybe you need to squeeze a class in during lunch. We understand the time pressure you’re under and that’s why we let you choose the most convenient option from a broad selection of meeting times and locations. With SPANISH black belt™ you don’t have to rearrange your life to accommodate a rigid Spanish course schedule. We meet throughout the day in comfortable, real world settings where you can get a coffee or tea and a snack and really enjoy yourself.

You will be able to schedule your Spanish course according to your availability and as frequent as you would like to, changing your schedule as frequently as it is required or even, if you are enrolled in TAILORED One-on-One tutoring sessions, scheduling make up sessions.

We conduct the sessions at public places in Washington DC, Maryland MD and Virginia VA. These places are easily accessible through the Metro/Subway transportation system and offer you a relaxed environment much different that what you may encounter in a classroom setting. Don’t study in a vacuum. Choose an environment that best replicates where you will be using Spanish in real life.


You SOCIALIZE and have FUN

When it comes to developing your language abilities we are all business; however, your experience with SPANISH black belt™ will always be engaging and fun. Your enjoyable sessions and relaxed environment will help you learn better.

People remember more information when they are relaxed. If you push your mind too hard, or in the wrong way, it will rebel, and you will have trouble retaining anything for very long. Things need to be lighthearted, a little playful. We all know that laughter is relaxing, and now you know that a relaxed mind is critical to effective learning.



You GAIN UNLIMITED ACCESS to our online SPANISH LEARNING CENTER

Our online Spanish learning center expands on functions introduced in the session allowing you to require purchasing packages that consist of less hours per week. With us you therefore end up spending much less in the long run. Drilling, pronunciation, fluency and many other exercises are included in the interactive online activities. Our online Spanish learning center, accessible 24x7, allows you to study at your own pace at home late at night, or at any other time convenient to you.



You GET all this at a REASONABLE cost

We believe that students should meet with us only for the number of hours that is strictly necessary. If there is something that you can do on your own, why should you pay to us to do the same. We will help you study on your own and assign you optional homework, perhaps more homework than you can possibly do. You will then choose how much you do and when.


We offer 100% satisfaction GUARANTEED!
