I'm interested in the communicative education; I believe that language is a social tool to create bridges between cultures and the best way to learn a new language is to learn to express ourselves naturally. I believe that the practice of cognitive work and the use of games in the classroom (plus group work: even if it is only with the teacher) are the bases to learn to feel comfortable with the new language. I like to teach from literature (reading) and cinema (audivisuals, etc.).
I am a student graduated in Humanities (2012-2017, UPF) and I am currently finishing a master’s degree in training of teachers of Spanish as a foreign language, at the UB. I have been teaching as a private spanish teacher during this few years and I also have teach in some language institutes in Osijek (Croatia), Barcelona (Spain) and this next course... in Riga (Latvia) and after that I'm planning to go to live in Scotland. I can offer to you: ¡Spanish online classes! So if you are interested just check! :D

When you meet an enthusiastic teacher you can feel it, and Laia is one of them. I also like the way she introduces culture into her Spanish lessons, so you can learn language and culture at the same time. Highly recommended!
Laia is a very nice person. Her classes are very dynamic and interesting. I really recommend her.
