« I am so happy and satisfied with Maria and her natural approach method because it works so well for me who is completely ignorant when it comes to forign languages. Maria patiently walked me through the Italian language and now I am able to go to Italy on holidays. Maria's personality's is the winner: friendly, honest, fun and lovely. Very easy going and she is so peaceful and relaxed it is simply nice being with her. Maria's knowledge of the Italian language goes beyond my expectations. Yes, I am positive about Maria. »

Italy here I come, but how do I say: Where is the best restaurant?

Methodology

I use the natural approach method. A relaxed environment and a lot of visual resources. In the Natural Approach, the initial focus really is on comprehension. The crux of the issue is, “Do you understand what is being said?” (You don’t need to notice subject-verb agreement for this). Language is viewed as a vehicle for communicating meanings and mes­sages. The Natural Approach "is for beginners and is designed to help them become intermediates." It has the expectation that students will be able to adequately speak in the target situation. They will understand the speaker of the target language (perhaps with requests for clarification), and will be able to convey their requests and ideas. They need not know every word in a particular semantic domain, nor is it necessary that the syntax and vocabulary be flawless—but their pro­duction does need to be understood. They should be able to make the mean­ing clear but not necessarily be accurate in all details of grammar.

Background

I am a professional and qualified teacher with an extensive tutoring experience. I have taught privately and formally in classrooms to young children as well as adult classes for nearly 20 years! I currently have developed the professional experience that has helped me to employ the most efficient method for language learning.

I am a high school student and I am currently studying Spanish with Maria. I can definitely say I have improved in my school Spanish so much that now I have become motivated and passionate about it! Maria is truly lovely and gives you a relaxed and peaceful feeling. She is absolutely professional but very very friendly! Her method is truly working!
