I believe that language classes should be communicative, focusing on the use of the target language as much as possible and including authentic materials. Students should know their objectives and how well they are improving thanks to the teacher´s feedback given as needed.
I was born in Madrid and I have always lived in a small town in the North West of Madrid with my family. I always loved foreign languages, especially English, and the English-speaking countries. I love travelling and I always wanted to live abroad and teach Spanish as a foreign language. After studying English Philology, I really enjoyed the subjects of linguistics and teaching methodology and I decided to do a postgraduate course in teaching. My teaching experiences have been very positive, and I realized how wonderful and fulfilling was to be able to share my own culture with the students and how much they enjoyed learning about others in order to realize about their own identity.
