Hi! My name is Carmen, and I'm a Spanish teacher. Now the obvious things are out of the way, here are some things you may not know. My name means 'poem' in Latin, and I kind of like that. I was born in Granada, a cute city in the south of Spain where Carmen means 'big house with garden'. There, I graduated in philosophy, and learnt there is a word in my language to name the colour clouds turn at sunset. Amazed by that, I moved to Madrid to study arts and, trying to see as many of those clouds as possible, travelled a lot. I ended up in Boston, Massachusetts, where I became a Spanish teacher so I could discuss the details of that colour with everyone (I should add that we discussed other things, too). Back in Madrid, I decided I wanted to know how a human learns to use colours that don't exist in his or her mother tongue, and got a master's degree in Teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language. Now, I'm living in London, where I continue my cloud research (English skies often have one or two...), and I'm here, on Verbling, willing to teach you the name of that sunset colour and every other crucial word you need to know in my language. For those less interested in clouds, I have experience in teaching Spanish for travel, business and medicine, academic Spanish, Hispanic literature and much more.
If you can't find available slots in my calendar, don't worry: I'll return by the time the swallows are preparing their flight to Africa. Which in other words means I'll be back here after my summer break. And you can already book your lessons with me for September. See you all then!
