Country: The Canary Islands, Spain
Education: MA in Teaching Spanish as a foreign language (University of Salamanca)
Teaching Experience: 6 years
I'm dedicated to teaching, in general. I think it's a matter of vocation as I've found my ideal role in life from a very young age. For this reason I graduated in Pedagogy, but the choice to teach my own language came later, and was the product of wonderful real-world coincidences that have brought me great personal satisfaction.
There is nothing comparable to teaching people who want to learn and communicate with others allowing for greater integration between people. I'm very keen on enriching students learning experiences and thoughts as something truly unique.
From level A1 to B2
For me, going to class is quite an experience, because many times you don't know what you'll find, or what you'll learn that day.
We try to do activities with which our students are comfortable with and have fun. Taking away the fear allowing the confidence to speak to assert itself. When this happens, it never ceases to amaze me that many times we feel like friends, we laugh and we share intimate ideas, etc.
In conclusion, being a Spanish teacher for foreigners, is about investing time in teaching. It involves travelling around the world without actually moving away from the classroom. It's pure satisfaction.
