    Nohemi has catered our lessons to directly relate to how I plan on using Spanish, which is so much more than I could ever get from a book, online program, or group class.

    It has been an absolute pleasure working with Nohemi. I have always struggled with learning a foreign language and so I was initially nervous when I decided to begin learning spanish. However, Nohemi has exceeded my expectations! She is incredibly friendly, helpful and patient with me. She seems to constantly be adjusting lessons for me so that we are always doing something new and different each time. I am not only learning spanish but having fun learning spanish. I feel very lucky to have found her!

On my first lesson with a student I assess their knowledge in the language. We go over short and long term goals. I explain the set up of my classes and what they can expect from me.

This first class helps in knowing the student and in planning my lessons. I want them to be relevant to the student.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

One of the things we do in our adult classes is going to a restaurant and order in Spanish.  Recently, some of my students met at a restaurant in ChimyChurry, Hallandaise. While we were waiting we conversed mixing both languages.

I could tell that one of the adults had practiced talking about how the rest of the family new Spanish because of what they did in their jobs. Even her grandchildren knew Spanish. This was her motivation for this retired administrator of hospitals to learn Spanish. Most of this conversation was in Spanish. She had started learning Spanish about a year ago.
