My Story Thanks for taking time to learn a bit more about my Spanish courses on Udemy. My name is Scott, the creator of eSpanishTeacher's Beginner Spanish. I've been speaking Spanish for over 20 years and teaching it for most of that time as well. Years ago while tutoring high school students who were struggling in their Spanish classes, I developed a system for teaching Spanish in a simple way that breaks down the language into its simplest parts, while anticipating and eliminating much of the confusion that new students encounter. It was that early experience that drove me to create this language program, which has helped people all over the world learn to speak Spanish quickly, affordably, and effectively. Spanish did not come easily for me. I really had to grind through and force myself to learn the concepts in detail, which is one of the reasons my course is so effective. Because of that, I am able to teach the challenging parts of the Spanish language using clear language that's easy to understand. Language Learning Landscape So many of the expensive programs available today are essentially a series of poorly-designed Spanish vocabulary drills with the hope that you'll be happy memorizing long lists of words and short phrases. These programs fail to provide an avenue for the student to master the essential language concepts & core principles that one needs in order to create coherent, effective communication. eSpanishTeacher Philosophy Students are benefitted when instructors use simple terms to clearly explain the most difficult concepts, followed by a risk-free environment where those same students practice their skills . The model we subscribe to is Explain, Demonstrate, Simulate. First, I will EXPLAIN the concept and help you understand why it's important. Next, I'll DEMONSTRATE how & when it's actually used in Spanish. Finally, you'll use what you've learned about the concept to SIMULATE and actually speak in Spanish using the concept. This is followed up with a comprehension exercise to reinforce the language concept. Whether you are learning Spanish for business, education, your personal life, or traveling abroad to a Spanish speaking country, you need to learn from an actual teacher with a proven track record who is dedicated to your success.
