¡Hola! My name is Mariana and I'm from Buenos Aires, Argentina. I'm a teacher of English as a Foreign Language and a qualified Spanish tutor. I've taught Foreign Languages for more than 16 years. I believe that learning a language successfully comes through having to communicate real meaning. Learners trully learn a language when they are involved in real communication. For this purpose, I plan my lessons taking into account your needs and interests. I include authentic material such as videos, songs, literature and games in the foreign language. I work hard to provide my students with a variety of meaningful activities and creative lessons. Don't hesitate to contact me, I promise you will have fun while learning!
