Six years ago, I went to the big Colombian city (Bogotá) as I wanted to learn English and be able to talk to people from all over the world. That's how my intercultural journey began. I am proud of saying that I am following my dream and that I have traveled to quite a few countries in the process. By doing this, I have been able to meet amazing people who had a positive impact in my life and personality. This could be your story too, so that's why I'm here: to help you shape an intercultural awakening.
This lifestyle has also been my job over the last two years. Most of this time I have taught Spanish in language schools in Bogotá. My students have been teenagers and adults coming to Colombia to travel, study or work.
--Because structures are important, but the experience is what is worth remembering--
Now, with the tools that I have learned in my ever-evolving quest of becoming a great teacher, this is what I offer you:
By being a teacher and a learner myself, I know that finding what needs to be done to effectively learn a language depends on the student. Therefore, when you join me, you tell me about your goals from the very beginning, then I tailor the best contents and we work from there.
As a Colombian, I take the lead and the responsibility of showing you my lovely culture and the heartwarming people I represent. This is when we become friends and not see each other as a teacher and a student. This is a two-way road where we share stories and learn from our cultures with no pressure.
In my classes, I always include topics that deal with daily life issues and real situations where language interactions happen. Spanish is so rich and we can endlessly talk about Colombia, Latin America, the world around us and all it has to offer; while we do this, you will internalize some linguistic contents naturally.
There is more, but I don't want to make it boring. ¡Es hora de aprender Español!
Spanish teaching for foreigners coming to Colombia. My students were mostly adults coming to Colombia to travel, study or work. I also led culture and language immersion activities to enrich the learning process of my students.
Students usually stayed for a brief period of time at school (2 to 4 weeks), it was enough for them to adjust to the city, the lifestyle, the people, and the language.
