Spanish for the Classroom Teacher
Over the year we from Universal de Idiomas have developed a program that helps teachers to revamp their Spanish.
Our expertise on this comes from many years of experience. We have had Spanish teachers coming to our school belonging to the bilingual program of the University of Arizona. This program is designed mainly to help students' correct structures and vocabulary that has been contaminated through English usage. For this program we use books written by Ethel Pazos, a Costa Rican, which addresses the problems non-native Spanish speakers might have with the language. For example, false cognates, Spanish slang's, redundancies, and the excessive use of "Que". In a 30 hour course Spanish teachers are expected to correct common mistakes that might arise due to influence of foreign language structures, mainly English or French.
In addition this program will provide information for your students about the Latin American and Hispanic culture that exists. This allows teachers to take home first hand experience and new insights on how to enrich their classes with cultural topics and new words and usages that have been incorporated into the Spanish language.
