« I met Carlos during my Erasmus in Barcelona, my level of Spanish was poor, and he taught me Spanish for a few months in many classes. The classes were excellent and enjoyable, appropriate to my degree in a very focused way, but with the flexibility to adapt to questions, additional explanations or a particular interest because of my subjects at the UB. While taking classes at the University of Barcelona, I needed to progress quickly, on the right foot. I feel that this balance was well achieved by the correct combination of explanations with examples and positive stimulus to move forward and do more when I could. The classes were always intended for oral expression, and that helped me a lot to speak fluently and also to improve quickly in oral comprehension. Just what I needed! Without these classes, I would not have been able to pass the UB's subjects! Many thanks Carles! ¡He was a ray of sunshine! »

Highly Qualified French Teacher - BA with Honours in Modern Foreign Languages at the University of Barcelona (TESOL/ELE/FLE)

Methodology

I love transmitting enthusiasm for languages; to my students. My Online classes are predominantly focused on the communicative approach to help to lose the fear of speaking and being able to express themselves from the beginning. Grammar is essential but always from the point of view that you have to put into practice what you learn immediately. Memorise vocabulary and rules is not what is needed to learn a language, you have to learn, fix and practice so that the results can be seen from the beginning.
In my office, I have a whiteboard, where I can explain in detail the rules of the language, the vocabulary and any questions that may arise. Besides, I have the necessary equipment for listening or even for viewing videos and be able to work online on them. I deliver the material in advance to the class so you can print it and prepare everything before you start. Among the materials, I provide are the lesson and the homework so we can see the progress you make during classes.

Background

I am an enthusiastic teacher of Spanish, French, and English. I got my Bachelor (Honours) degree at the University of Barcelona in 2018 with a 1st/Class I in French and English. I teach Spanish and French at any level, I have spent long periods in France and currently living in the UK. Meanwhile the University period, I obtained the highest possible grade, which once validated in the UK is a 1st or Class I.
The last two years I have collaborated with the NGO "Fundació Educació Solidària" in Barcelona as a teacher of Spanish at various levels and ages, from teenagers to adults. For the same NGO, I am currently working as a translator (Spanish, English, French and Catalan). I have also worked for a self-study centre, the CMR, teaching French, Spanish and English for students trying to access the university.
Mainly proud of my work in the NGO "; Fundació Educació Solidària"; helping immigrants with the risk of exclusion from society. A job that receives the most rewarding rewards because you help people who truly need. I Also collaborate with the CMR, a school that is mostly focused on obtaining the official baccalaureate degrees, the access to middle and high school, as well as the access to the university for over 25 years old. In recent years, I have helped students to access the university by giving private classes in English and French.
The last two years, I have given lessons to university students, especially in the most complicated subjects of English studies, such as phonetics I & II, descriptive grammar I, II & III, among others.
The academic year 2018-2019 I was working at Watford Grammar School for Boys, then, I know well the curriculum at GCSE level and also A-Level. I helped many students to improve their level in French and pass the GCSE exams with good marks. Moreover, I am teaching adults by Skype from Barcelona.

I had been lucky enough to work with Carlos for the last four years as a student/teacher partners at the University of Barcelona. It was a pleasure to work with him, and I can say he is one of the best-prepared teachers regarding languages. He never shirks responsibility and knows how to transmit knowledge, something fundamental for teaching, to students. His expertise in the Catalan, Spanish, French and English languages is impressive, so I can assure you that choosing him as your foreign language teacher will be the best decision ever.

Carlos is an excellent teacher. He is very responsible and friendly and always plans his classes in a way that fits your individual needs. His classes are dynamic and interesting, you will always learn something new with him sometimes even without realising how much you are learning. I would recommend him to anyone!
