What We Do and Who We Serve
CAMINO ESPAÑOL, is the "FasTrak" Path to Learning Spanish.
Sentence "beginnings" in combination with action words enable the speaker to form thousands of grammatically correct communications. No need for cumbersome verb conjugations. Visual and tactile learning techniques speed the memory for rapid recall of vocabulary.
Games repeat a positive and negative statement, practice pronunciation and self-correction, grammar structures and vocabulary in order to practice and polish new concepts. Grammatically structured songs and catchy tunes imprint challenging structures.
"Me duele la cabeza" (the head is hurting me) could confuse a non-native speaker. By singing the song, the pattern is stamped into our mind. Music is auditory, emotional and motoric according to Oliver Sacks, author of "Musicophilia" Tales of Music and the Brain.
Suzanna Zaraysky, author of "Language is Music" speaks seven languages fluently. She acquired these languages through listening to the music and the musical qualities of the spoken word, NOT through formal grammar study. In her book , Suzanna discusses about the musicality of language.
