What we're about
Hello! I am an experienced CELTA and Spanish teacher and I love helping people get their Spanish to the next level! I hope to meet you soon at one of the meetups.
I started in 2015 in Meetup and I have been teaching Spanish in a daily basics in Dalston and Angel ever since.
Here are few reviews from my students:
“ As a teacher myself - Azahara is a great teacher, able to tailor the lesson to the needs of each individual in it. She also has a wealth of great ideas and suggestions for study outside the group/homework in order to improve between sessions and will give detailed feedback on progress and what to work on next! ”
— Robert (http://www.meetup.com/DALSTONSPANISH/members/191274203/) on Oct 22, 2015.
“ Azahara's conversation group is perfectly pitched to help you gain confidence and improve your spoken Spanish. She takes time to help you with any specfic problems on grammar or vocabulary, yet somehow manages to maintain a free flowing conversation covering any number of topics, so it's not a "lesson", it's communication. More than that, after the meet-up she forwarded a number of links to Spanish sites of interest to help with listening skills and vocabulary. This is a seriously good group. ”
— John Smith (http://www.meetup.com/DALSTONSPANISH/members/184521499/) on Mar 12, 2015.
“ If you want to be tutored in spanish by someone who challenges you then look no further than Azahara. There is only one way to learn another language and that is to speak that language. In this class that is all you do - speak spanish. It is impossible not to improve your spanish in Azahara's class! Look no further than here if you want to learn more than just a few key phrases and conjugations. This is where you will actually learn to speak! ”

This group is for students of Spanish with different levels of Spanish Language knowledge. Everybody benefits from everyone.
We have classes of different levels during the weeks so please chose the one that suits you the best. In December we will start Spanish Courses for beginners, advance and intensive language course. Find more information in my web.
WHAT IS ALL ABOUT?
We meet and we talk about different subjects during our meetups in order to use as much and vary vocabulary as possible. I take note of the mistakes that each of you do during the meetups and of the new vocabulary we use each meetup. The last 10 minutes of the meetup I do a summing up of the things that each of you should strengthen and point your improvements. I adapt each meetup to you so none is similar to another one. The same day of our meetup (late in the evening) all of you that came to the meetup receives a mail from me with links to subjects we discussed in our meetup in Spanish for you to read and get new vocabulary, I detail the mistakes you had and you should improve, I write a list of the new vocabulary we used in our meetup, I give you a list of colloquial word and phrases in Spanish (around 15 of them) which you'll learn only living in Spain but not in the books, and I suggest some homework to do at home in order to improve whatever you need (grammar, listening, speaking...) to improve. Homework are not mandatory to do but you certainly benefit doing it.
• We meet and talk about different subjects (more vocabulary).
