ME AS A TEACHER
He enseñado más de 2,000 clases en el último año y me encanta ayudar a otras personas aprender mi idioma
Como profesora, uso un método comunicativo, el cual tiene como objetivo aprender un segundo idioma usando ejemplos de la vida real para aprender a comunicarnos en situaciones cotidianas. En este método usamos la gramática como una herramienta más, que muchas veces podremos aprender a través de situaciones comunicativas reales por medio del contexto, la observación y el sentido común.
Si eres un principiante, podemos armar un plan con los temas básicos del español para que comiences a aprender este maravilloso idioma.

¡Hola! ¿Qué tal?
Mi nombre es Carlos Alberto. Soy de Valladolid (España) y soy Profesor Nativo de Español.
Tengo amplia experiencia en la Enseñanza del Español como Lengua Extranjera en diferentes academias, organizaciones sociales y en clases online. Mi estilo docente es muy dinámico, práctico y participativo, me adapto a los objetivos y motivaciones que tú tengas: Podemos centrarnos más en la Conversación, Comprensión oral o lectora, Escritura, Vocabulario, Gramática, Pronunciación y temáticas concretas que quieras tratar como, por ejemplo, negocios, historia, deportes, viajes, cultura…. ¡Lo que tú quieras!
Para las clases utilizaremos múltiples soportes: videos, audios, hojas de actividades, imágenes y materiales de lectura, con los que aprenderemos juntos Español y todo lo relacionado con la sociedad y cultura Hispánica de una forma Didáctica y MUY Divertida.
¡Te acompaño a que des el paso y Aprendas Español!
¡Viajemos juntos en esta Aventura!
Hello! How are you?
My name is Carlos Alberto. I am from Valladolid (Spain) and I am a Native Spanish Teacher.
I have extensive experience in Teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language in different academies, social organizations and in online classes. My teaching style is very dynamic, practical and participative, I adapt to the goals and motivations that you have: We can focus more on conversation, oral or reading comprehension, writing, vocabulary, grammar, pronunciation and specific topics that you want to treat as, for example, business, history, sports, travel, culture…. What you want!
For the classes we will use multiple supports: videos, audios, activity sheets, images and reading materials, with which we will learn Spanish together and everything related to Hispanic society and culture in a Didactic and VERY Fun way.
I accompany you to take the step and Learn Spanish!
Let's travel together on this Adventure!
My lessons are directed to students of all levels looking to develop their own speaking and writing style in Spanish. I believe that the creative drive is one of the most powerful accelerators of learning and in particular, language learning; so my classes involve acting exercises, fun writing prompts, vocal training akin to singers' training, and a variety of further creative work.
We will work on near perfect pronunciation through vocal practice that takes from singing practice, but focuses on diction. You'll become aware of how the muscles of your mouth and face create sound, and how using different resonance points throughout your face will get you to reproduce just the sound you were stuck with. Muscle memory, baby!
Fluency in articulating your own thoughts and essence in Spanish is achievable through writing prompts that do feel important for you. To write about a topic that actually matters to you, I'll provide you with beautiful vocabulary words, and we'll get through grammatical forms that may better encapsulate your ideas and feelings. I will help you make Spanish your own.
If you are wanting to absorb a particular part of Hispanic or Latino culture (e.g. Rosalía's composition, rap music, particular accents, reggeaton's lyrics), we will investigate and go through the elements at interest to get you to the point of creation. If you are a musician or a writer, I can help you use the rhythmic essence of Spanish in your own art. Hit me up!
Within every technique I use, I work with my knowledge of neural connection strengthening and weakening, all facilitated through repetition, reward, understanding and reprogramming of reflexes, investigation of previous outdated strategies, etc. Emotional management is key to success, and we'll work on that in your training just as much as in the linguistic side.

Most students take 55-minute classes. However, some tutors also offer the option of 30-minute classes. If this option is available, it will be noted on the tutor's profile (below their pricing and above the 'Buy Lessons' button).
In general, 55-minute classes are recommended for most students. 30-minute classes may be suitable if you're taking lessons for your child or if you have an intermediate level and only want conversation practice.
One of the benefits of online classes is that you can learn anytime, anywhere. When you choose a teacher, simply check their calendar to ensure that they have times that fit your schedule. Some teachers may have limited availability due to high demand.
Lessons are taught one-on-one to ensure that you receive customized instruction. During the classes, your tutor will use a variety of teaching methods and resources, including language exercises, conversation practice, and cultural notes, to help you reach your learning objectives.
All classes take place via video call. Your tutor will normally give you a choice of calling tools, all of which are easy to use.
If you're new to LanguaTalk, we'll provide you with a credit for a free trial session. Many, but not all, teachers offer these for free. If a tutor does not offer a free trial, the trial price will be 30 percent of their full lesson price, allowing you to still try a session at a reduced cost.
Trial sessions last 30 minutes. They allow you to determine if the teacher is a good fit for you and get a sense of what online learning is like. The teacher will assess your level and try to understand your needs and interests so that they can tailor any classes you choose to take. You'll be encouraged to speak as much as possible in Spanish, but you can also speak in English if needed.
If, after your trial session, you don't feel that the teacher is right for you, you can book a trial with another teacher for 30 percent of their full lesson price.
LanguaTalk offers personalized 1-on-1 Spanish classes with top-rated tutors. Here's how to get started:
1 - Find a tutor that meets your needs by reviewing their videos, reviews, pricing, and availability.
2 - Book a trial lesson. Many tutors offer a free 30-minute trial, while others offer a discounted trial price.
3 - Have personalized classes with your chosen tutor via video call. Or try a different tutor if desired.
You don't need to provide credit card information to book a free trial session. Please only book a trial if you're seriously considering taking classes. Tutor prices vary, and you can use the filter to find one that fits your budget. You can pay for individual lessons or purchase a package for a discount (view a tutor's pricing options on their profile).
We're confident you'll enjoy learning on LanguaTalk. Our platform is trusted by students worldwide because of our transparency. We ask students to rate each lesson, and we display these ratings on tutor profiles.
99.8% of lesson ratings are 5 stars. This is because we only accept the top 10% of tutor applications, unlike other platforms.

Some students might be unsure about learning Spanish online because they think it will be very different from in-person learning. However, many students find that the online experience is similar and they often develop strong relationships with their teacher.
Once you start a video call with your selected teacher, you'll be able to communicate with them as if you were in the same room. The teacher may also share learning resources with you (such as newspaper articles or YouTube videos) and you'll be able to collaborate in real-time using tools like Google Docs or Dropbox Paper.
Our research suggests that the average hourly rate for private Spanish classes for adults in Crystal Lake is between $25-$35. Since online teachers don't have to travel to you and often live in countries with a lower cost of living, their hourly rate tends to be significantly lower.
Some tutors on LanguaTalk may also provide in-person classes for adults in Crystal Lake, but most only offer online classes for adults as it is more convenient and allows them to work from home. Additionally, most tutors are not located in Crystal Lake because they are living elsewhere in the world. If you book a lesson with a tutor, you should assume that the lesson will be conducted online.
If you prefer in-person classes for adults over online learning, LanguaTalk may not be the best fit for you. Instead, you can search for a teacher on a local service listing website or place an advertisement in your area. However, we do encourage you to try online learning – you have nothing to lose by booking a free trial session. Many students find that the online experience is just as good as in-person learning, with the added benefit of access to higher quality teachers at a lower cost.
