About Me

I'm a native Spanish speaker who's been living in Poland for 4 years. When I tried to study Polish (a much more different language to my mother tongue and others like English or French) through the traditional grammar style, based on the concious learning of a language, I realized that we were doing something wrong. Since then, I've been reading, watching videos and inmersing myself in the world of how languages are actually acquired. I've attended conferences and also gotten trained on the field of acquiring a language naturally through comprehensible input. I've been coached by some of the most experienced teachers in the world in this area like Ben Slavic or Robert Harrell, among others. Thus, I'm going to use the TPRS (Teaching Proficiency through Reading and Storytelling) method, the most complete of all those in this field, which follows the same principles for which kids acquire their native language. Your speech will be natural and spontaneous and the student will always enjoy a safe environment in my classes. I'm truly passionate about languages and thanks to this approach I already speak five of them myself and I'm pretty close to being able to communicate in a 6th one. And believe me when I say that I don't waste a single minute of my time consciously studying languages and their grammar rules. As I said in the video, I'm going to teach you mainly Spanish but also English.
