A romance language with Latin roots, Spanish lessons are great for budding polyglots! With similarities to Italian, French, Portuguese, and, Romanian, if you’re in Canberra and are just starting out with wanting to speak a second tongue this year, classes with a Spanish tutor are a fantastic gateway to help familiarise yourself with foreign concepts of grammar, conjugation, and syntax. For students who actually know Romance languages already, taking Spanish lessons shouldn’t be too difficult. Even native English speakers report there are many cognates between the two languages, so students won't need to spend hours and hours learning a basic level of vocabulary as they will already have the advantage to help them!
You will soon notice in your lessons you may actually know a small number of words in Spanish…. animal, doctor, hospital, global, flexible, macho are all a group of words considered ‘perfect cognates,’ as they have the same origins and are spelt and mean the same thing in both English and Spanish. By taking face-to-face lessons with a qualified tutor in Canberra, you’ll be picking up Spanish in no time!
Basic language skills will make you stand out in a lot of contexts, but especially in the workplace. Taking one-on-one lessons to learn with a Spanish teacher is fantastic at boosting your employability. Learning how to communicate in Spanish is extremely valuable may even lay the foundation of an international career in the not for profit, public, or private sector or open you up to future study options such as an exchange or semester abroad experience in a Spanish speaking country.
One of the great benefits for students enrolling in lessons and knowing how to communicate in another language is that it opens them up to getting to know a whole other group of people. Whether it is the colleagues in the office, the neighbour next door, or a classmate in a university course, Spanish lessons will come in handy for new meeting friends anywhere in Australia. Learning new languages like Spanish or French is not a small task, but certainly a rewarding one!
Learning via private class will also be useful when travelling considering it is the official language in 20 countries! From its origin in Europe in what is modern-day Spain to places such as Mexico, Cuba, and Latin American countries like Argentina, Chile, Columbia, Peru, Venezuela etc, Spanish is widely spoken all over the world and boasts 450 million native speakers (not a small amount at all! Spanish comes in as the second most spoken language after Chinese). With such a large group of people already having Spanish as a first language, there is a multitude of opportunities to practice your conversation skills with native speakers.
You may want to consider whether or not you would like to engage a native speaker for your class. A native Spanish tutor can really help you with pronunciation during lessons, you might even pick up a few new fun phrases. Alternatively, the tutors who may speak English as a first language and have been in your shoes before as a student of Spanish might actually be better at helping you grasp the more tricky aspects of the language. As you’re having a good look at the teachers online, read through their profiles and the reviews from former students, this will help you determine who the right teacher will be for your class. It is worth noting that the online reviews from past students are indeed verified to assist you in selecting the right tutor.
As you'll see online, there are Spanish lessons available for students of all age ranges and abilities. So whether you're starting class from a basic point, or are a more advanced speaker wanting a Spanish tutor to finetune your conversation abilities, you're sure to find a teacher with experience on Superprof. Before you start contacting tutors for lessons, however, you'll need to consider where your abilities currently lie.
Are you an English speaker in your first year of Spanish, or have you been learning it for years and years and have a more intermediate level? So the tutors can help you improve, and in order to tailor the session, your teacher will need to know which education level to start the lesson from and what language areas (reading, writing, listening, speaking) will need more time and attention.
The frequency of your classes is flexible and can be adapted to fit your schedule. The key to achieving a good level of Spanish is, of course, regular practice! Our recommendation is to book lessons with your tutor as frequently as you can and supplement your learning with free resources in between classes. If you're able to meet with your tutor week to week, this will do wonders for your language abilities but it will also depend on what your learning needs are. As you start to see improvements in your Spanish you may want to stretch classes out to a couple of times per month.
You will see some tutors on Superprof offer the first hour of learning free of charge. Compared with some language schools that require payment upfront, this is much more flexible as everyone learns languages differently so it is a great idea to test out if you get along well with your tutor before committing to lessons. The duration of a private session is typically an hour.
You may be able to schedule a double lesson with your tutor if you need more time face-to-face. In terms of location, the teacher may be able to conduct the course from their home or you can even contact the local library to book a free room. You could even do an hour of a video call online and learn from the comfort of your own study. Don't waste any more time, start searching for your Spanish tutor!
