 This was a great lesson! I have been struggling with por vs. para and Rafael has really been slowing down to help me. I'm so thankful he understands when I need to spend more time on certain concepts!

 We looked at extra visuals for concepts I have had trouble with. Rafael made extra charts and exercises to help me this week!

 Another excellent Spanish class with Rafael. I always enjoy the classes which are very interesting and dynamic. Rafael knows how to correct me so I can improve my grammar and vocabulary. I look forward to the next class! :)

 I really like the live dialogue with a native Spanish speaker. It is really different from just listening to CDs or audio and better learning!

 I did not have great Spanish classes in school and now as an adult I have many gaps to fill. Rafael really made me comfortable to back up and find the appropriate level to begin at and start again from there! He's very patient!

 Rafael is a great teacher. I’ve been studying with him for some years almost every week. His lessons are amazing: very interesting and productive! They help me to improve and maintain my grammar and conversational skills at a proper level. Each time we have interesting discussions of different articles on various topics. And if you want to understand Spanish more profoundly, there are always plenty of tricky grammar exercises as homework. I highly recommend Rafael as teacher to everyone who wants to learn Spanish or just to have a good time speaking it!

Teaching Approach

What is Communicative Teaching Methodology ?

The Communicative Teaching Methodology is the best way to learn a language. Real conversations for the real life.

•Language teaching method's main objective: the improvement of students communication skills.

•Spontaneous and creative use of language: I encourage it. Meaning is given precedence over form.

•Newest and most effective methods: are used to ensure that our students learn in the best way.

•An interactive and dynamic methodology: which brings real communicative situations into the sessions to help you have fun and enjoy the learning process.

•Activities: learn Spanish in the way we really use it.

•Complementary teaching methods: that are used as well as our main method when required.

Skype + online meeting software for free in our sessions

Skype is great but can be much better...

Why not see videos, texts,articles, interactive screens and much more you can imagine,,,incluide in the price..

My students love it.
