¿Qué tal? My name is Laura and I'm a qualified teacher of Spanish as a foreign language and DELE examiner from Barcelona, Spain. I am passionate about communication and languages and that is why I decided to study Journalism and to get a diploma as a professional Spanish teacher.
I am currently living and working in Germany as a teacher of Spanish as a foreign language at Instituto Cervantes Berlin and Sprachkombinat language school, also in Berlin. I have lived in the UK for more than three years and I have studied a bunch of languages, so I am aware how tricky is to get started and master a new one: I have studied French and English for several years and Mandarin Chinese as well. At the moment I am studying German!
How are my lessons? First, I listen my students to understand their main motivations and goals when learning a language. Also, I briefly asses their level to identify the points we can work towards. Then we can talk together about the most suitable study plan for you (duration, topics...). Another key aspect for me when teaching Spanish is that you speak and listen the target language (Spanish) as much as possible during our lesson, as it is necessary to train your ear and lose the fear to speak and make mistakes, in order to be proficient, and here is where I can help with our online lessons! About the materials I use, I am mainly following the book Aula Nueva Edición (Difusión publishing house) and I combine some material from this book with material I have created myself and some material from books Bitácora and Gente Hoy (from the same publishing house). *Note that I won't ask you to buy any material as I will provide all*
IMPORTANT NOTE: My availability is never fully updated because I am working as a freelance and my timetable changes constantly week by week. If you are interested in booking a lesson, please send me a message letting me know all days and times that you are available and I will get back to you as soon as posible. Many thanks for your cooperation and apologies for the inconvenience.
If you have any question, don't hesitate to ask me, I will be very happy to help!
