Teacher Case Studies
Language Taught: Spanish
Years of teaching experience: 7
Language Trainers: What language do you teach and why did you choose teaching as your career?
Jim: I teach Spanish and chose teaching as a career because I viewed it as a fantastic second job. Also, if a person has experience teaching Spanish, they may be able to combine various forms of experience.
Language Trainers: Where did you study, and how long have you been teaching?
Jim: I studied at the University of Nebraska, at Kearney, and at Metropolitan Community College in Omaha, Nebraska. I have been teaching for nearly two years and the age group I usually have taught have been adults over the age of 18.
Language Trainers: What do you look for in a student?
Jim: I like a student who is positive about wanting to learn. I especially like a student who makes an effort to learn, and also understands that what they learn is not only up to the person teaching them, but also up to their own efforts and what they want to get out of learning.
Language Trainers: What should students expect in you as a teacher?
Jim: Students should expect me to know how to teach a class. I don’t think it is unreasonable to have a teacher who may not know every little bit of information about the subject material, but a keen knowledge should be expected. In any case, there are times in which I have learned from my students rather than the relationship being the other way around.
Language Trainers: Describe your favorite aspect of working for Language Trainers:
Jim: My favorite aspect of working for Language Trainers is that it allows me to continue to add experience to my teaching credentials anywhere that I live. I am in a career in which I have to move from place to place periodically, and it’s nice to have the experience and connections. The program is really a fantastic one for someone looking for part-time supplemental experience.
Client Case Studies
”Yes, the program has been extremely helpful. My teacher was the most helpful and useful”Rediscovering the Spanish Language
Language Trainers: Good afternoon, Bob. How are you doing?
Bob: Good afternoon. I’m good, thanks.
Language Trainers: Would you mind telling us a bit about yourself?
Bob: My name is Bob, I am 50 years old, and work as a CPA. I began studying Spanish with Language Trainers in November of 2013.
Language Trainers: And why did you begin studying Spanish? What were your reasons and goals?
Bob: Ten years ago, I was living in Guatemala. I became conversationally proficient, but after I left I did not keep practicing. Although I should have. In Tampa we have several stations that broadcast the same shows —including news programs—in both English and Spanish. I began because I wanted to be conversationally fluent again.
Language Trainers: So, why did you choose Language Trainers?
Bob: My employer found the company and picked my program for me.
Language Trainers: And did you find Language Trainers helpful?
Bob: Yes, the program has been extremely helpful.
Language Trainers: What was the most helpful part about the course?
Bob: My teacher has been the most helpful and useful. My challenge isn’t vocabulary, it’s conversational: I can hear a word that I know, but still not recognize it immediately. My teacher helps me overcome this.
Language Trainers: Do you think you would recommend Language Trainers?
Bob: Yes. Yes, I would recommend Language Trainers!
Language Trainers: And on a final note, what’s your favorite new expression in Spanish?
Bob: Well, I’d be better off not to say. It’s a funny expression, but after translating it literally to English, I might get slapped!
