My name is Lina and I'm from Peru. I live in the Bay Area ever since I came from Peru in 2002. I'm a Part-time Spanish teacher PK-5 at several schools in Alameda and Oakland.
- BA in Business administration
- AA in CHDEV
I'm trained in Teaching with Comprehensible Input (TCI), a methodology that is proven to be effective, based on Second Language Acquisition research from the last four decades. The students will ACQUIRE the Spanish Language rather than learning about it.
We acquire language when we understand messages; when we understand what people tell us and when we understand what we read.”
—Dr. Stephen Krashen
YOUR CHILD WILL: Read in Spanish ● Listen in Spanish ● Respond as able using signals at first, then words in Spanish, then phrases ● Communicate through meaningful interactions.
YOUR CHILD WILL NOT: Memorize vocabulary lists ● Practice verb conjugations ● Learn about Spanish grammar in English
Proficiency is the Goal: Proficient learners can communicate about something appropriately and accurately for a purpose.
use useful language in the class so that we are prepared to communicate in the real world. Interactions are centered on what each student needs, knows and can do now and what each student needs in order to move forward.
