We create customized Spanish class activities for teachers that help them include real world and cultural aspects of Spanish in the classroom. These items include Spanish song activities, grammar, vocabulary, and cultural videos as well as material (posters, etc.) to decorate the classroom. We have also participated in live Spanish class video calls with students in the United States. With the views of a native Spanish speaker and a gringo who picked it up as an adult, we constantly find entertaining and unique lessons to share our vision of exposing students to Real World Spanish. Learning Spanish should be fun.
We take our experiences from day-to-day bumbling between a native English and a native Spanish speaker to communicate and combine them with a desire to teach students Real World Spanish. Our resources help students learn about culture, Spanish slang, local Spanish, and country/regional differences. The idea is to keep Spanish learning fun.
We host the World Language Teacher Summit, the largest online conference for WL teachers. Bestselling book in Chile - Speaking Chileno Bestselling book in Puerto Rico - Speaking Boricua My books on local Spanish have sold 10s of thousands of copies.
