Learning Spanish can be challenging, but Varsity Tutors can help make your experience more convenient with our Jacksonville Spanish course. One of the most important factors in a student's success in learning Spanish is regular exposure and practice. However, for most language learners, it can be hard to keep their motivation in studying. Not being able to find class schedules that fit their schedule is just one of the things that can discourage students. With Varsity Tutors, you can learn Spanish entirely online, so you don't have to worry about these inconveniences.
There can be many benefits to learning Spanish. First, you get to communicate with people from different backgrounds and nationalities since Spanish is the second most widely spoken language in the world after Mandarin Chinese. In the US, it is also the second most spoken language, with over 45 million people as native or second-language Spanish speakers.
Second, you can be hired for jobs that need Spanish speakers and have the opportunity to grow your professional career. You can even explore jobs in more than 20 countries that use Spanish as their official language. These countries include Spain, Peru, Mexico, Argentina, Chile, Ecuador, Guatemala, and many other countries in Central and South America.
Third, knowing how to speak Spanish can come in handy when traveling, absorb new cultures and do business with a huge population of people.
If you are wondering how you should go about your Spanish lessons, a Jacksonville Spanish class can be a good place to start. It can provide you access to experienced language teachers, a comprehensive and thorough study, and most of all a very convenient way to learn. Whether you are a student at Oakleaf High School or Mandarin High School looking for Spanish courses to fulfill your general education requirement, or a student from The University of North Florida or Jacksonville University wondering how to start Spanish lessons, we have courses that can meet your needs. The courses are offered for students at different levels, and you can choose from weekday and weekend classes.
What material will a Jacksonville Spanish course cover?
Spanish is a Romance language - a set of languages based on Latin. Other examples of Romance languages include French, Italian, Portuguese, and Romanian. It is also a gender-based language, which means nouns are assigned specific genders based on certain rules. For example, if a noun ends in "a," it is usually a feminine noun. Some examples are señora (lady), guitarra (guitar), and gata (female cat). If the noun ends with "o," it is usually masculine. Some examples are señor (gentleman), zapato (shoe), and gato (male cat). As you continue with your studies in Spanish, you will learn exceptions to the rule and you just need to take note of those nouns.
You will also cover verb conjugation in Spanish. This is important because it will allow you to describe situations and events. Some of the verb forms in Spanish:
- regular - follows regular conjugation rules
- irregular - doesn't follow most normal ending patterns
- stem-changing - changes depending on how you use it in a sentence
- spelling-changing - has consonant-spelling variations in some forms to follow pronunciation rules
- reflexive - reflects the action back on the subject of the sentence
There is also adjective-noun pairing, which refers to how adjectives change depending on the number and gender of the noun they are modifying. Other important topics that you will learn in your Jacksonville Spanish class include pluralization, pronunciation, and written accents.
How will a Jacksonville Spanish course help me learn?
Varsity Tutors offers Spanish classes online, which makes it convenient for many students to start learning the language. With an online class, you don't need to think about how you can go to school or worry about how long it takes to get there. All you need is to log-on your computer and join your instructor and other students in our virtual classroom. The lessons will still be live and interactive - you can ask questions to the instructor and have the chance to practice speaking in your target language with your classmates. Our Spanish course lets you learn in a collaborative and supportive online classroom no matter what level you are in your language studies.
Though studying with a group can allow some students to learn concepts faster, there may be times when you may want to have more personalized attention from your instructor in order to ask more details about a problematic area in your study. If this happens, you can ask a one-on-one session with your instructor so that you can immediately address the topic that you cannot understand. This is actually a very helpful feature of the course because personalized attention may not be easily available in traditional language courses.
Learning a foreign language can be made easier and more effective if you are doing it with a trained and highly qualified teacher. All instructors who handle the language courses go through a rigorous interviewing and vetting process so that only those who really know how to teach the target language would be able to conduct classes. Language instructors for our courses are very passionate about what they do and excited to teach students not just the technical aspects of the language but also the nuances when it comes to certain ways of expressing thoughts and ideas in Spanish compared to English.

Allow the student to articulate the following: 1) His like/dislike of the subject matter; 2)His understanding of the subject matter; 3)Where his understanding goes off track; 4) current study habits for the subject I would then explain the importance of the subject to the overall scheme of his learning. Lay out the appropriate study habit for the subject matter. Depending upon the immediate needs of the student (i.e. preparation for an upcoming test), I would gauge an appropriate starting point.

I have been taking upper-level math and science classes at the University of North Florida for some time. I have about 33 credits remaining for a bachelor's degree with a concentration in general physics and a minor in mathematics. I hope to simplify matters that might seem complicated. Many times complex concepts are best mastered in a step-by-step fashion. This approach demands patience, however, it usually ends in a cumulative understanding of these principal concepts.

...session will be an opportunity for students to ask questions, make mistakes, and overcome deficiencies. Students will leave each session with a strategy (or more) that will help them to succeed in their area (s) of focus. Having worked with students who fall below their grade level proficiency, I exercise patience and practical teaching strategies to meet students where they are. I am fully committed to helping students reach their academic goals!... I believe that every child has the ability to reach their potential. For students to succeed, they must have a teacher who is willing to meet them where they are. This is what I do. I help students use their strengths to overcome their weaknesses. I believe that teachers should provide students with opportunities to learn about areas that interest them, as well exploring topics outside of their culture. In everything that I teach, it is with high hopes that students become more culturally and globally responsive citizens.

...worked in both Paris and Central America. While I'm fully proficient now, I struggled with both languages early on, and understand the challenges of both starting a new language and in moving from a conversational to a more proficient level. I'm also available for ACT and SAT test prep -- and work especially well with students who are visual learners (though I have a wide range of materials and resources for all styles of learning!).

...consistently pass exams. There is an important difference between reading subject material (which can often be boring), and studying subject content (which is much more likely to be dynamic). I acquired my medical diploma while residing in a foreign country, studying in a foreign language, and because of that I could not learn the material simply by reading textbooks. Instead, I learned to study in a focused, dynamic manner that allowed me to succeed both...
