The Warren Hardy Spanish review was originally published in Dulaboo.com. I used to write for the said website before my contract expired. Republishing here for archiving purposes. Edited to suit Yoast’s requirements.
You come across a Spanish tutorial service online named after an actual person. So you get the perception that the person from whom the website is named after will handle the lessons himself, even just on recorded video.
Warren Hardy founded the Warren Hardy Language School in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico in 1990. He offers 2 kinds of Spanish language tutorials: home-based and school-based.
Since his school is based in Mexico, it caters mostly to expatriates who need to harness their Spanish language proficiency not only by settling in Mexico itself but also to enroll in his language school.
Here at Warren Hardy Spanish, he uses a culture-based language curriculum. This includes educating the expatriates of the etymology of certain Mexican slang. This way, Hardy helps them avoid trouble due to getting words lost in translation like the word “Gringo”.
Classroom tutorial sessions encourage conversations between the students. Native Spanish-speaking teachers guide them while practicing their Spanish. To eliminate fear of speaking up, students talk to one another instead in front of the class.
Conversational practice actually made sense. Students get scared to be assigned to speak in front of a crowd or a classroom. It’s slightly similar to the method espoused by MyLanguageExchange.com.
The home-based method of teaching Spanish includes a one-on-one Skype Tutoring with the help of Certified Warren Hardy Teachers. This way, a native Spanish-speaking tutor exposes a student to Mexican-based Spanish conversations.
Warren Hardy Spanish also offers sample servings of the student kits. They sell these kits online to orient students with the way Hardy himself teaches Spanish.
With the help of workbooks, flashcards, audio and video CD’s and learning packages, Hardy’s lesson recording help students speak and comprehend Spanish better.
You can listen to the free samples available on the website. You learn based on what those audio CD’s contained. Warren Hardy Spanish sells them separately or in bulk along with the student kit in order to get the workbooks too.
Viewing the KeyCards and the GameCards reminded me of some cards sold in local bookstores. These cards serve as ice breakers in group sessions. You can use Warren Hardy’s cards for home-based Spanish tutorial lessons.
These cards gel well with the included workbooks and audio CD’s. Soon enough, you would reach a level of Spanish proficiency enough to try visiting Mexico yourself and participate in Hardy’s language classes.
