About the lesson
My teaching method is systematical and entertaining, but I’m very open to adapt to my student’s wishes, interests and needs and to negotiate the method with them. The learner must be convinced about it in order to be motivated.
I enjoy working eclectically. You will interact a lot orally with me during the class, but you will also normally train intensively your reading and writing skills and the listening comprehension. I work mainly with a textbook, but also a lot with songs, voice messages, film scenes, short stories, newspaper articles, games, etc.
I try to foster as well the learner autonomy, by giving many tips, recommending apps and other learning materials and by giving homework.

I was born and grew up in Argentina. I lived in Spain four years and studied Spanish at the University of Alicante. That is the reason why I know both varieties of the language well. I have been living in Vienna for 16 years.
I completed a degree in Linguistics at the University of Vienna in German (focus: language teaching and learning research). Moreover, I obtained a master’s degree in Spanish as a Foreign Language at a Spanish distance learning university. Since 2017, I have been teaching at the Latin American Institute of Vienna.
I’m now working on four books, one about differences in vocabulary among Spanish-speaking countries, one about language didactics, one about communication and one about my travel adventures.
Nicolás is a very committed and good tutor! He helped my son a lot and is uncomplicated and open to all options (home visit, online, etc.). Thank you Nicolás!
For our schools we need more teachers who are as competent as Nicolas. He is an authentic, patient and very nice teacher who also speaks perfect German. He chats with you in his mother tongue about everything and you don't even notice that you are in the middle of learning Spanish. Nicolas adapts the pace and subject matter to his students. During the class, he describes words in Spanish that need to be guessed. The lessons with him make learning fun and no questions remain unanswered. I recommend it to all age groups!
We can also warmly recommend Nicolás! He has a very patient, flexible, empathetic and cheerful nature and knows how to motivate us again and again with his charming character. Nicolás designs the lessons very diversely and caters to our individual needs. He does not strictly adhere to the guidelines of the books, but instead brings us closer to South American culture with songs and texts from his homeland. Thank you for the additional information on recommended literature, films and apps to bring us closer to the Spanish language. Muchas gracias por todo.
I can highly recommend Nicolás. I've been studying with him for almost 2 months now and I can say that he has helped me improve my Spanish a lot. He also explains well and always thinks about which exercises are best for the day before each lesson.
I know Nikolas from a group Spanish course and can only warmly recommend him! As an Argentinian with a long stay in Spain, he is the best native speaker. In addition, he can tell a lot about cultural backgrounds. Nicolas is very committed, competent, humorous, interested in fellow human beings, empathetic and open-minded. He is very good at explaining even the most difficult content and is very patient. At the same time, with his happy nature, he brings a certain ease into the lessons, so that it is really fun to learn Spanish with him. He is always perfectly prepared and very creative. Has a wide range of teaching methods through which you don't even realize what you've already learned. Nicolas is the best language teacher ever!!!
I can only recommend Nicolás. He is very nice and patient when you don't understand something. The lessons with him are also exciting and he has immense knowledge that he likes to share, which helps one understand the Spanish language better and makes the lessons interesting and exciting. The lessons with him really bring out something. My Spanish has improved a lot and I am now able to successfully complete Spanish at school.
My daughter has been learning Spanish with Nicolas for a few months. He is very reliable and has a good feeling about what is required in terms of demand and support. His passion for language shows in his broad knowledge and the ability to pass this knowledge on, adapted to the needs and level of knowledge of the learner. My daughter has finally gained access to the Spanish language through him, and learning with him is clearly a joy and success. Thank you Nicolas!
We can recommend Nicolás as an excellent, reliable, friendly and very good Spanish teacher. Nicolás responded immediately to our request within a very short time and an appointment was made very quickly. Nicolás was on time, which is very important for us and he was able to explain the material to my daughter very well and to awaken the joy of the language again.
Through his enthusiasm, Nicolás not only brings you closer to the language, but also the energetic feeling and the way of life that defines language. An authentic and personable teacher.
Nicolás is an excellent Spanish teacher! I had no previous knowledge and am always amazed at how much I was able to learn with him in a short time. He makes the lessons varied, funny and entertaining. In doing so, he responds to individual needs and can easily identify where support and help are needed. What I particularly like is the mix, how the lessons are designed - texts, books and (especially important) conversations. You don't even notice that you're already in the middle of studying. I can really recommend Nicolás to everyone with a clear conscience! His diverse knowledge, his patience and the joy with which he teaches the Spanish language are just fun! We need more teachers like him! ¡Gracias, Nicolás!
Nicolás is a very good tutor. He adapts to your level of learning very quickly and makes the lessons interesting. His affable nature makes it easy, especially for younger students, to enjoy tutoring.
Nicolas is an excellent tutor! He is very patient and can explain very well. The hours with him are very varied and my Spanish has clearly improved. I also have better grades in Spanish at school now. In addition, you not only learn Spanish from textbooks, but also everyday Spanish and get a good feel for the language.
Fun, inspiring and very effective. Simply great.
Nicolás is flexible in terms of time and thanks to his help I was able to prepare for the class test in Spanish, which I finally passed with a very good mark.
I had a Spanish oral exam and Nicolás helped me speak Spanish fluently. With his motivating nature, I found the language to be a lot of fun and got a very good mark on the exam. So it was worth it :) I can recommend Nicolás to everyone who likes entertaining and varied lessons and wants to improve their Spanish quickly.
We can really warmly recommend Nicolás, my two sons have improved a lot in Spanish. If you are looking for a competent, reliable and charming tutor, you have come to the right place with Nicolás!
I would very much like to recommend Nicolas !! He is very good at explaining and helps a lot as a tutor
