Teaching Spanish language and literature online worldwide

Bio: Hi, my name is Adrian Sanchez. I am passionate about words and languages, particularly Spanish, the language I learned at my mother’s knee. I am curious about how languages change and evolve. I am a qualified Spanish Teacher (CLTA) and a journalist. I have taught in literacy campaigns in Latin America and given Spanish tuition in Spain and in the UK. I would like to share some of my thoughts on the Spanish language; and particularly on what I have learned from my students, who in many ways have become my teachers throughout the years. Spanish is a vast and beautiful language and I would like you to accompany me on a journey of discoveries, so I will be presenting two blogs per month and I would like to hear from you. Here is a link to my webpage: spanish-tutor.info You can visit my blog here: spanishtutorinfo.wordpress.com Email: info@Spanish-tutor.info Thank you!

    Hola Adrian. Although I learned a little bit of Spanish many years ago I don’t have much use for it in Norway (although I came to the rescue of a bewildered Mexican tourist last summer!) but it’s a language I like and I love the Spanish culture and food from my short time in Spain. Espero que disfrutas mis fotos de Noruega 🙂

    Hi Adrian. You have a very interesting and informative blog here! I have never learnt Spanish – maybe it’s time I revisited that decision, although there is not much opportunity to speak it here at the tip of Africa! I’m going to follow your blog for a while and see where we go. You have definitely piqued my interest! Thanks!

    Hi, Adrian and thank you. I have experienced the Spanish language a number of times. Here in the Midwest, U.S., we have a lot of variations on it.

    I grew up in an English speaking home, though we’re Mexican-Americans. My parents put me in a Mexican school in Guadalajara, Mexico for my second year of high school. No one spoke a word of English, so I learned Spanish very quickly.

    Hello, Adrian. Thank you. Your blog is very interesting. It’s funny, as old as I am, only now have I decided to learn the language of my heritage: Spanish. It’s really a beautiful language. Thank you for being here.

      Dear Dulcinea

      Thank you! It is never too late to learn a language, particularly now that we have been told that people who speak more than one language fluently have better memories and are more cognitively creative and mentally flexible than monolinguals.

      Dulcinea is a beautiful name. It is the name of the lady with whom Don Quijote, the protagonist of The Ingenious Hidalgo Don Quixote, Cervante’s novel, is in love.

      Kind regards

    Hello – Thanks! I love language and literature, and I learned some Spanish in high school, along with French. When I have more time (retirement?), I would like to take it up again to become fluent.

      Dear Shery

      Thank you! I love to read literature books in the language they have been written originally. It is a very rewarding experience. If you love literature, to read the classic and contemporary Spanish literature in their original language, will be a great discovery. If you need advice on this matter do contact me: info@spanish-tutor.info

      Kind regards

        I did read some classic Spanish literature in high e.g. La zapatera prodigiosa by Federico García Lorca. Lack of time is my primary reason for not being able to read as much as I would like. However, I am now reading the poems of Neruda in English (translations), with original Spanish.

          Dear Shery

          A good friend of mine once said, “I wish I would be fluent in Spanish to read Pablo Neruda’s poems in its original language”. She studied Spanish for several years until becoming fluent and was able to read not only Neruda but many other Latin American and Spanish writers. Such is the power of literature and poetry.

          I couldn’t help quoting Neruda’s passion in my post “Las palabras”: I love words … they sparkle as pearls of colours, jump as silver fishes, they are foam, thread, metal, dew … I hunt some of them down … they are so beautiful that I want to put all of them in my poem:

          Are you aware that recently unpublished poems by Pablo Neruda were brought together in a new book: Tus pies toco en la sombra y otros poemas inéditos?

          Kind regards

    I am learning a bit of Spanish right now via podcast. After visiting Mexico, Central and South America several times I decided I would enjoy my travels better If I could communicate.

      There is nothing more bold and generous than to learn a language. It is an infinite enterprise worthy of heroes. It broadens our minds and allows us to see the world with different eyes. Please feel free to contact me if you need any advice or guidance during your Spanish language learning.

      I also have a tailored 24 lesson intensive course for travellers, which might be of interest to you. You can email me at: info@spanish.tutor.info
