Spanish Lessons with Lissette
Recording In Spanish:
¡Hola! Soy Lissette. Bienvenidos a mi sitio en el internet, donde voy a incluir artículos y grabaciones para que ustedes aprendan más español.
Translation In English:
Hello! I’m Lissette. Welcome to my site, where I’m going to include articles and recordings so that you can learn more Spanish.
Learn STANDARD SPANISH. I'm a Native speaker of Spanish, but I'm also an actor/singer (with TV credits), and I have learned to speak neutral Spanish, such as the one you would use in broadcasting (or the equivalent of STANDARD ENGLISH). I have recordings throughout the site with my voice, so that you can hear the tone and rhythm that I teach my students, basically designed to be as accent-free as possible.
I passed Spanish CSET teaching test with great scores
---I took the Spanish tests required to teach in California (CSET) and got the top scores in all areas of the test: linguistics, reading, culture, grammar, literature, spoken and writing skills. You can rest at ease that my language skills are absolutely top notch.
---I provide you with drills that I have created which will help you to quickly ask and answer questions. If you already have some grammar knowledge, you will be able to finally use it. If you don’t, you will still be able to start speaking right away!
Oral drills and exercises:
---My classes focus on speaking. Whether with exercises I've collected through the years, with the use of several drills I have come up with, or with conversations that we improvise in the moment, you will be speaking a lot. That's how you know you will be able to speak Spanish outside of class, because you've been practicing conversations in class from day one.
---Though I focus on conversation, I also teach you grammar. Grammar takes out the random element of learning a language. Why? Because grammar rules are the formulas that will exponentialize your learning experience. Otherwise, learning a language is like doing multiplication by using your fingers.

I help my clients acquire conversational skills quickly by:
Teaching them a system that delivers basic conversational/transactional skills in three months. Basically, in the first few months you can gain skills which will allow you to say simple sentences, and which will help you do simple transactions in Spanish.
From three to six month, you will understand sentence structure and you will be able to communicate with others by using simple phrases and you will be holding on to short conversations.
From six months to a year my clients skills include:
---Handling more complex transactions in Spanish (at a hotel, ordering food, managing transportation abroad, buying items).
---Finally sustaining simple conversations with new acquaintances and old friends who speak Spanish. Getting used to speaking Spanish and holding on to one-on-one conversations.
---Having conversations in present, past and future tenses.
---Being able to sustain a job that requires simple Spanish skills, by being able to interact with coworkers and clients in Spanish.

How can you learn Spanish as fast as possible? This is a question my students ask often. During the first classes, I will figure out which teaching methods will allow you to learn faster. Together, we will create a custom-made class using classic and modern techniques of teaching the language.
---I teach Spanish full time to adults. Teaching Spanish is not just something I do every so often. I have been helping professionals acquire skills that improve their work skills for years. I also tutored elementary, high school and college classes for 20 years. Now my focus are adults that need Spanish skills at work or that need to speak Spanish for personal reasons.
---After 22 years of teaching Spanish, I know grammar rules by heart, and I can teach them to you at the same time that I provide you with drills, and at the same time that I converse with you in Spanish!!
---After teaching so many students throughout the years, I intuitively know how folks learn a language.
---I know English and Spanish really well so I can explain complicated Spanish concepts to you in English (especially at the beginning of the course), which expedites your learning. I will also help you understand how Spanish, and English are different, so that you don't get confused with tricky grammar rules and word order.
---I teach with a Spanish grammar book that you can follow at home for even quicker results.
Learn Spanish by singing: Learn Spanish by learning your favorite songs in Spanish. Some of my students learn songs because it's a way of quickly retaining and drilling grammar and new words.
LEARN VERB CONJUGATION PATTERNS
Learn Spanish by learning grammar patterns. From verb conjuation to direct and inderect objects, learn grammar rules that will help you understand how to construct sentences successfully. I use textbooks and my own original methods, which have been developed over the years.
