Native teacher of Spanish with more than 10 years of experience in Cardiff

Methodology

I base my lessons on a communicative approach but I sincerely believe that exercises from a structural approach are essential in order to systematize the use of the language. A second language is not assimilated by our brain in the same way that the native tongue. However my lessons are tailored for every student needs and learning approach. The main focus of my lessons is the student to feel confident and communicate in Spanish from the very beginning.

Experience

I am a teacher of Spanish from Madrid more than 10 years of experience. I studied Spanish Philology and I did a MA in Spanish Language. I am writing my PhD focus on the field of teaching Spanish as a second language.
