Spanish-4-You is a fun and practical High School Program which will make students conversational in Spanish in record time. The Director, Ms. Zayas, was a Spanish high-school teacher for many years at LAUSD. She taught all levels, from Spanish I to AP Spanish. Based on her 12 year experience, she created a great High School program consisting of several workbooks, dozens of poster-size color pictures, vocabulary flashcards, and a complete testing system to assess progress. Our High-School classes are very small, no more than 12 students, so that we can provide personal attention to each one of them. By attending a one and a half hour class once a week, our students will learn in one day what traditional high-school students learn in a week. Even though they go very fast, students will acquire a solid foundation in the language. The class stresses oral communication using the immersion method where Spanish is used at all times. Creativity is preferred over perfection. That is why we never over-correct our students because we do not want to interrupt their thought process. The way we correct is by letting the student finish their idea, and then gently repeating what they have said wrong, in the right way, and then have them repeat it twice. If we notice that many students are making the same mistake often, then we explain it on the board and have students write it on their notebooks. Our students enjoy the class tremendously and most become passionate about the language. At the end of Spanish I, after taking approximately 32 sessions (48 hours of instruction), our students can expect to be totally conversational in a wide variety of topics in the present and future tense. The past tense is taught in Spanish II.

Most of our High School Spanish lessons are structured to last 90 minutes and we need at least 16 sessions per semester to cover everything. Students get a Spanish workbook which is very visual with beautiful, original color artwork and practical exercises. The content of each lesson has been carefully developed so that high-school students can acquire a solid grammar foundation while acquiring strong oral skills. The teacher always introduces the new vocabulary and grammar concepts with big color pictures and then asks each student individual questions based on the drawings. Classes are small so students are always engaged in a dynamic environment where they are encouraged to speak a lot with their classmates, but just in Spanish. We always customize our instruction to adapt to students' different abilities and are always available to answer questions via email. Teachers are required to answer emails within 2 hours because we do not like students waiting when they are doing their homework. During the semester, students take 5 quizzes and at the end of the semester they take one long test. Their grade is based not only on tests but in active class participation, effort and homework. Students are expected to do a lot of practical homework which is always corrected in class, as a group. Students know that to achieve fluency in this important language, these once-a-week Spanish lessons need to be supplemented by constant review. Since we only use illustrations in our books, students need to make flashcards in the mini-flashcards section at the end of each lesson. We cover so much and so fast that we can’t allow more than 3 absences per semester.

From Parents:

“There are no words to express my gratitude. I know from experience that the first year of any language is very important and without a solid understanding you quickly fall behind and are unable to catch up again. Your Spanish-4-You program has made Spanish for my sons fun, interesting and easy to learn.”

“My two sons (12 & 14) were struggling in Spanish before they started with Spanish-4-You. They now have become extremely confident in their speaking and writing abilities due to the lessons given to them by their teacher. I highly recommend the program without hesitation.”

Spanish-4-You has helped my step-son tremendously so it is with great pleasure that I endorse their program. The teacher’s techniques and attitude make the learning process fun. I would highly recommend their brand of teaching to anybody seriously interested in honing his or her Spanish language skills as a student or businessperson.”
