Spanish-4-You program incorporates Bingo games in every lesson. Thematic bingo games are a lot of fun and children always look forward to playing. The main purpose of bingo games is to assess students' understanding of the lesson vocabulary (oral and visual comprehension). If the teacher notices that students are looking over at their peers' cards that means that the vocabulary has not solidified in their brains and a quick review should be made before moving on to the next lesson. Parents and teachers can get our first lesson absolutely free and until the end of the month, they can supplement... Continue reading

Spanish-4-You donates a minimum of 3 quality backpacks through World Vision every month, so that children in 3rd World countries can have school supplies. We take school supplies for granted, but there are students so poor they can’t even afford a decent pencil. We have personally sponsored children in Mexico through World Vision since 2009. Now we can do it on a bigger scale through our company. Please take the time to let your fellow teachers know about our program. The more lessons we sell, the more backpacks we can purchase. Check out our Online Shop for Spanish lessons in... Continue reading

Zoie is one of the smartest children I have ever taught. She goes to the prestigious WNS (Westside Neighborhood School) in Los Angeles, CA where my academy, Spanish-4-You http://www.spanish-4-you.com taught an 8 week after school Spanish class. She is the only kid that asks politely how I am doing after I ask her how she's doing (unbelievable). Her memory and pronunciation are fantastic. Watch the video of Zoie and other kids Spanish-4-You students: http://www.youtube.com/user/SpanishForYou11 Continue reading

Today, while cleaning my computer files, I came across an article that I had saved for almost three years. It was about a renowned business coach (Dr. Gayla DeHart) commenting about an article she had read in Oprah magazine in December 2006 by David Foster Wallace. When I first read it, that little article had a profound impact on me and now that I re-read it, continues to have a huge impact. I think it is because it summarizes how I have always felt about human interaction, especially in business. Everytime I interact with a client, I think about it.... Continue reading
