What is neutral Spanish?
Neutral Spanish is an artificial variant of Spanish that is intended to eliminate dialectal characteristics
(accents, words and typical expressions used in different regions), to be able to adapt to any
Spanish speaking places around the world without showing any specific origin.
It is a language, commonly used by international media, created to reach larger masses worldwide.
What dialect would be most convenient to learn?
Throughout the classes we will present the entire variety of dialects that make up the Spanish language
(different accents, words and typical expressions).
With the use of audios and videos, we will have the opportunity to understand peninsular Spanish
(spoken in Spain), Latin American and Rioplatense Spanish (spoken in Argentina and Uruguay).
Will it be hard for a Spaniard to communicate
with a Latin American?
Although everyone has their own accents and expressions, there is no difficulty in understandingthe different dialects.
All dialects are valid and the class wouldn’t be as rich without them.
How does the family group function
when the ages are very different?
When we work as a family group, the majority of activities and material are made for the younger ones, however, everyone
can benefit from them. We listen to songs, rhymes, videos, play games, read stories, etc. that attract the young ones, but
nevertheless, they are appropriate for everyone to learn from.
Can’t an adult learn Spanish singing a children’s song or watching a children’s video?
Playing as a family to learn Spanish implies that everyone must be willing to play lotteries, memory test, and board
games… Everyone can enjoy and learn a lot doing so!!
Generally, kids don’t ask about grammar rules and they can learn easily intuitively. Adults, however, will need certain
explanations in that sense. In heterogeneous groups, like families, the class could be 45 minutes for the kids and extended
time for adults to work in these specific areas.
Apart from minor differences, the majority of the class is designed to enjoy learning as a family.
