I have created a course of lessons focused on holiday basics to ensure that people can grasp the essentials. Working alone students can learn the vocabulary based on power-points and go through quizzes and videos. Then in a group they can come together to practice what they've learnt ask any questions and back up their understanding and be given extra materials to help them as required.
I graduated in Hispanic Studies in 2002 and have taught people of all ages and experience for 10 years. I made sure students passed their exams and made the most of the holidays and felt confident in conversations during international meetings.
I can only travel to student's homes to teach as per government guidelines so please be aware of this when booking.
