“Alejandra has a gift for teaching Spanish, not only the language in a very practical way that materializes quickly in daily life, but also the culture, which is so rich and different from our own. Through books, movies, great conversations and field trips, she has enlivened Spanish history and culture for us, a priceless gift that we will always treasure. Alejandra also has a keen ability to customize class, pinpointing the exact topics needed to get conversation going. We will miss her dearly and hope to continue working with her via Skype.”
“Alejandra not only provided me with great Spanish lessons, she taught me about the history and the culture of Spain. She was my travel advisor; my source for good restaurants; my guide for discovering Barcelona and Spain. She became my friend.”
I can’t say enough great things about you! I love that our classes are topical and cover things about Spain. I love that you have us write, read, speak and listen to Spanish as part of our lessons. I love that you adapt the lesson based on my interests and what I’m doing. Working with you has been great!!!!
“Having Alejandra as my private language instructor has been one of the best decisions I’ve made since arriving in Barcelona! She is a remarkable teacher with the unique ability to encourage and challenge at once. I’ve learned more from her hands on side-by-side approach in a few months than I did in 4 years of language study in college. This style of study is so much more than textbooks and worksheets. You’ll be engaged with recent newspapers, magazines, movies, audiobooks and personal advice on what to do and see in and around Spain. Besides being a power packed teacher, she’s the kindest hearted woman, who helped us through the complicated aftermath of a vehicle accident. She’s a true gem to be sure. If you are serious about acquiring a language she is the one to work with.”
“I highly recommend Spanish al a Carte, and specifically Alejandra Perez as a language instructor. My family and I lived in Spain for almost five years, and when we first arrived, we needed to get our understanding of Spanish up to speed quickly. At one point I took an intensive class from Alejandra that included multiple hours of instruction over several weeks, which solidified a number of essential concepts about the language. Classes were a proper mix of grammar, everyday speaking, use of words and phrases specific to my job and industry, as well as cultural expectations. Like many, I have a demanding profession that often makes my schedule erratic. However, unlike a typical language course, Alejandra was able to work out a plan that accommodated my schedule and allowed me the flexibility to still learn Spanish. I am much more confident working and living in Spain as a result.”
“Spending time in Barcelona 2 years ago, in autumn, was fantastic ! Alejandra’s family has been adorable with me. She is a wonderful teacher and she gave me the motivation to keep learning Spanish ! The city, the atmosphere, the food was so great, that I spent the next autumn in the same place, and I will for sure go in 2016 !”
