Personal

Hi! I´m Sara María, and I was born in Valencia (Spain), but now I´m living in Madrid for 11 years. Teaching Spanish is my passion, and I´m also interested in understanding the world we are living in today, so I like to read the newspapers and to be informed about the politics, the economic and social issues, because I do mind the people that are behind that news all over the world. I also like to listen Podcast and to watch documentaries about History or any other subject. I like dancing and I have been singing in choirs since I was a child, I love to sing many kinds of music, but I prefer opera. I go to my home city, Valencia, as much as I can, and I love to spend a complete day next to the beach to have a walk, to think or to meet my friends, as we have sunny time there even in wintertime!
