I am a professional native Spanish tutor and I specialize in conversational Spanish. After learning English and German in College, I understood very well what needs to be done in order to speak a second language. One of these needs is to become familiar as soon as possible with common phrases, for example, to tell your name, where your from, how you feel, to be able to introduce yourself and ask background information, to give your opinion, to order food etc. These phrases are tools that you will need all your life, regardless how old you are. My youngest students are 8 years old and my oldest ones, already retired. The phrases are in Power Point as slides with the English phrase first, followed by the Spanish translation. It is an easy and wonderful visual tool! If you use the Slide Show feature, you will understand why it is so effective. Students learn them quickly and this is how I usually start my classes. I can proudly say that all my students become fluent under my guidance, many of them starting from zero. These phrases are my personal selection of what you should start learning today if becoming conversational is your goal.
