Hello! My name is Juan Francisco and I live in Mexico City. I enjoy books, movies, music, and culture in general. I'm very keen on getting to know diverse people and understand their context and their thoughts. I have a bachelor's degree in Latin American Studies and a certificate in Teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language, both from the National University of Mexico (UNAM).
I've been a teacher for 5 years. I adore languages. I've studied English, French, German and Italian, so I am very aware how difficult it is to learn a foreign tongue. I know how to make the process enjoyable and effective, I can give you lots of tips and guide you through it skillfully.
My classes are tailored to each student, so your needs and objectives are met. Conversation is a great way to make use of online lessons, we can talk about anything you want. We'll complement it with doses of grammar, and I'll also function as a “content-jockey”. I'll always have a suggestion, depending on your level, for a book, a movie, music, a YouTube channel, or an app, etc.
I truly believe in input-based learning and the Natural Approach. Looking back, that's how I learned English when I was a teenager, just enjoying cultural material without realizing I was studying. I consider having fun with compelling content the best practice. However, I also think that spending a little time with grammar (like looking at a map during a hike) can be very useful and speed up the process.
