Hello! My name is Laura, and I'm an English teacher from Florida. I am currently living in Spain working as an English teacher at an elementary school near Madrid. I recently graduated from the University of Florida with a degree in Finance. In my experience, learning a second language is only accomplished through practice. I encourage my students to only speak English while in class, and constant conversation between teacher and student is the fastest way to promote learning. I tailor each class to the interests of the students, whether it be a tv show, a book, or another cultural interest, in an attempt to engage interest and give them a platform to speak from. I think learning a new language should be fun and fascinating!
