About Me

I am a Spanish native speaker who has recently moved to Ashford, Kent. My academic background is in Political Science and International Relations. Nevertheless, my interest in the richness of my mother-tongue led me also pursue another passion: teaching Spanish to foreigners. As a matter of fact, I obtained an official Spanish teaching certificate (Teacher of Spanish as a Foreign Language) in 2016 awarded by the International House Language School based in Barcelona, Spain. From that moment, I have been combining both my international relations expertise and teaching Spanish to private students and small groups while working in different countries (Spain, Israel, USA, Switzerland and Poland). In my view, politics and linguistics are strongly intertwined: cultural diplomacy is an instrument that serves to exchange different mind-sets, facilitate dialogue among peoples and foster a more democratic society.
