If you're interested in Chicago Spanish lessons but aren't sure how to get started, Varsity Tutors can expedite the process. Spanish is among the world's most-spoken languages, with over 430 million native speakers spread throughout Europe, North America, Central America, South America, and the Caribbean. There are 45 million fluent Spanish speakers in the United States alone, and it's also the most studied foreign language in the country. If you want to learn a language for more than an academic challenge, Spanish is certainly worthy of your consideration.

There's a multitude of reasons why you might want to start studying Spanish. If you attend a local high school such as Lane Tech College Prep High School or Taft High School, Spanish might be the easiest foreign language class available to you (not that it's easy). Likewise, undergraduates studying at local institutions like Northwestern and DePaul University might need to take Spanish to fulfill their general education requirements. World travelers may wish to study Spanish to communicate with the locals during their trips while working professionals might want to become bilingual and enhance their resume. Some people study Spanish for the sheer love of learning, while a student interested in Spanish history and culture may want to analyze Spanish language texts.

Clearly, there's no shortage of good reasons to begin studying Spanish. Actually mastering it can be a challenge, however. While English and Spanish share several points of commonality, there are still plenty of differences to wrap your head around. Verbs are conjugated different, and adjectives take on different forms depending on the gender of the noun they are modifying. Yes, all Spanish nouns are gendered.

What skills can I practice during Chicago Spanish lessons?

One of the most effective ways to study a foreign language is also the simplest: practice. There's really no substitute for hearing spoken Spanish and responding in kind, so the best Spanish instruction involves immersing yourself in the language as completely as possible. This can prove difficult if you don't have a reliable practice partner, which is where Chicago Spanish tutors come into play. You will have time set aside each week to practice your Spanish skills, ensuring that you don't get rusty. Better yet, your teacher can create a comfortable learning environment where you can make the mistakes that often drive the learning process.

A professional educator can also help you with your Spanish written communication skills. If you aren't in the habit of outlining Spanish writing assignments, doing so can make it easier to organize your thoughts and remember which words you need to convey what you want to say. Your Spanish teacher can also provide feedback on your work, letting you know what you did well and where you could still improve.

You might also want to consider working on the finer points of Spanish grammar. For instance, Spanish nouns that end in the letter "o" are typically masculine, while those that end in "a" are feminine. However, this general rule of thumb has several exceptions that require memorization. Similarly, there are basic rules for conjugating regular Spanish verbs and irregular verbs that follow their own rules.

If you're studying Spanish history or culture as well as the language, rote memorization and analytical thinking skills will be even more important for you. Your instructor might teach you a mnemonic device to help you remember a list of Spanish monarchs, or discuss which aspects of Spanish culture were transferred to their Empire. If you treat these topics like a social studies class, you'll be on the right track.

How do Chicago Spanish lessons work?

Varsity Tutors has two great options for students looking to further their understanding of Spanish: online classes and private tutoring. If you choose to take a class, you'll study on our proprietary live virtual platform that facilitates real-time interactions with both your teacher and your classmates. Each instructor is vetted, so we can promise you a great communicator who knows how to teach Spanish. If you feel like you need extra help, you may arrange private study sessions with your instructor whenever you feel the need.

Since you can communicate with your classmates, they can also play an integral role in your instruction. Hearing their spoken Spanish can help familiarize you with a variety of accents and dialects, providing a more accurate sense of what it would be like to hear Spanish in a Spanish-speaking area. You can also help each other out while the instructor is working with somebody else. Another student's perspective may help you understand a concept you were struggling with while explaining something to somebody else can reinforce your own understanding. Multiple students can also split the bill multiple ways, giving you more value for your money than you could get on your own.

If you would prefer to study in a one-on-one learning environment, a Chicago Spanish tutor may be more your speed. A private instructor can adapt their pace to your needs, introducing new material at a rate you feel comfortable with. They can also design study sessions around your preferred learning style to enhance your study efficiency.

We also try to make meeting with your private Chicago Spanish tutor as convenient as possible. If you want to study online, our Live Learning Platform provides a face-to-face study experience without the hassle of actually meeting up in person. If you would prefer to meet up in person, we can refer you to a tutor in the Chicago area who is willing to meet you at a local coffee shop, fast food restaurant, library, or even your home. Either way, you always maintain the flexibility to schedule sessions on your schedule for maximal convenience.
