"Following your dream is like learning a foreign language; you will make mistakes, but you will get there in the end (...) The world is generous to those who pursue their dreams".
I am a Spanish teacher since the last six years. I was born in Madrid, Spain, and I studied Spanish Linguistics and Literature. After, I got my masters in Teaching Spanish as a second language. I have taught Spanish in England, the Czech Republic, India and the Caribbean. I have worked in private language schools and I have taught in High School and University level. I am also a certified DELE examiner and I have delivered preparation courses for all levels.
In my classes, I follow a communicative method. If you are interested in conversation, or want to focus on grammar aspects or get training for the DELE exam, we will discuss it in our first lesson. I offer serious, but full of fun, quality classes. I will use interesting materials to work on different skills and cover different topics. My sessions are planned according to the 6 levels in the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). The pace depends on the student. If we set an action plan, you will progress very quickly.
A bit about me... I practice yoga, surf and I love hiking and nature. ¡But I like to travel overall! I love to share experiences and learn customs from all cultures.
Os espero en mi clase de prueba. Ya sabéis… ¡Aprende español y disfrutarás de la vida!
