Para Progresar was created out of Maria Ordoñez' experiences as an immigrant who decided to become a teacher to serve the needs of the Spanish speaker struggling to learn English. Our 30 Lessons teach the full spectrum of English basics one step at a time, in a fun and easy way. All of the explanations are in Spanish.
We believe that education is the greatest investment you'll ever make. Being bilingual and bicultural is an asset that opens job opportunities anywhere you choose to live. English is our world's common language.
For 30 years Ms. Ordoñez students were immigrants who arrived in the USA, like herself, without English skills. Her passion for teaching these students led her to develop her system to teach English as a second language. Throughout her classroom career Ms. Ordoñez was one of the favorite teachers precisely because English for Progress effectively teaches English in a fun and easy way.
Maria Ordoñez always said to her students "Learn English, never forget where you come from, who you are, and where you want to go. Once you learn English - it's yours for ever".
Now that she has retired from the classroom, she continues teaching through "English for Progress." Her system of video lessons, written lessons, and Audio CDs brings Ms. Ordoñez' experience, voice, and mentoring to the classroom of the world.
