عني

¡Hola! My name is Mariana and I'm from Buenos Aires, Argentina. I'm a teacher of English as a Foreign Language and a qualified Spanish tutor. I've taught Foreign Languages for more than 20 years. I believe that learning a language successfully comes through having to communicate real meaning. Learners truly learn a language when they are involved in real communication. For this purpose, I plan my lessons taking into account your needs and interests. I include authentic material such as videos, songs, literature, and games in the foreign language. I work hard to provide my students with a variety of meaningful activities and creative lessons. Don't hesitate to contact me, I promise you will have fun while learning!

دروسي التجريبية

During our trial lesson, we will get to know each other. I will ask you to introduce yourself and tell me about your goals and expectations. You can also ask me anything you might want to know. We will go through some activities according to your level to discuss "¿Por qué estudias español?" and your study habits. We will also aim to discover those learning strategies that work best for you. Finally, I will provide you with a link to an online Placement Test to be completed after the lesson.
