¿Qué tal? My name is Laura and I'm a qualified teacher of Spanish as a foreign language and DELE examiner from Barcelona, Spain. I am passionate about communication and languages and that is why I decided to study Journalism and to get a diploma as a professional Spanish teacher.
I am currently living and working in Germany as a teacher of Spanish as a foreign language at Instituto Cervantes Berlin and another private school for adults and teenagers. I have lived in the UK for more almost four years and I have studied a bunch of languages, so I am aware how tricky is to get started and master a new one!
How are my lessons? First, I listen my students to understand their main motivations and goals when learning a language. Also, I briefly asses their level to identify the points we can work towards. Then we can talk together about the most suitable study plan for you (duration, topics...). Another key aspect for me when teaching Spanish is that you speak and listen the target language (Spanish) as much as possible during our lesson, as it is necessary to train your ear and lose the fear to speak and make mistakes. Also, I will provide you materials that will motivate you to learn, I will do a selection based on your learning needs and personal interest and I will make sure you have fun and feel motivated in each one of our lessons as this is a key aspect when learning and mastering a new language :)
If you have any question, don't hesitate to ask me, I will be very happy to help!
