Hakkımda

I started studying English when I was six years old and now, twenty years later, I have a deep knowledge of the English language, that's why for a long time I taught English to Spanish natives. That was only until I travelled to the UK and got asked to help with Spanish learning for English speakers. Since then I have gradually fallen in love with my language and I love teaching it. I find it amazing, fun and, yes, it's difficult, but I love seeing the progress that students make from the typically said "Quiero dos cervezas por favor", to having a complex in depth conversation about culture. I am currently completing a general course in ELE (Español como lengua extranjera) and have worked in Academia Uruguay with adults from all around the globe.
My approach to language learning is a bit of a "pay as you go" attitude, only it should be "learn/teach as you go". More clearly explained: not only I believe, but I KNOW that every person is a different world. I've had students from all nationalities and each one of them had their own pace, their own strengths, their own background and studies, their own interests.... I could go on and on. What I do is take my time, which is usually the first two lessons, to study the cases and then plan according to each student's specific needs. For instance, I've had groups in which there was a literature teacher and an accountant, so I've learned to manage situations like these and plan a class in which there was time to process information for the students whose strengths weren't necessarily in languages and a bit of extra work for those who were faster. I use a lot of extra material, meaning not just from the class book, from videos and games to literature and news. Also, interaction is the key of a productive and fun lesson, nobody wants to hear a monologue.
To sum up, I think the main core of my teaching style is being flexible. Yes, I'd much rather never having to translate vocabulary but sometimes it helps so I do it, I also try to speak in Spanish all the time but with beginners nothing can be set in stone.
