I help diplomats, expatriates, executives and engineers to achieve success in their social and professional events by speaking Spanish.
I do this by giving online lessons, in which I not only share my Spanish language and cultural skills, but also my life experience in the diplomatic and business world.
I have experienced this success, and I know what you need to successfully deal with these situations.
I was born near Alicante, in the Spanish Mediterranean coast, even though I was grew up in Villarrobledo, a village in the region of La Mancha. I studied Engineering in Madrid and I had my first international experience in Belgium, where I spent my Erasmus. Even so, when I was very young, I spent a summer in Brittany studying French. For over 15 years, I worked in Madrid and other Spanish cities for several multinational companies in the engineering and construction industry.
In 2009, I decided to leave the company and move with my partner to Guinea Bissau, his first destination as a Spanish diplomat. That was certainly quite an experience! There, in Africa, was where I started to train myself as a Spanish teacher.
Three years later, we moved to Venezuela. Thanks to the Venezuelan and Colombian people who I met in Caracas, I discovered the great beauty and variety of the Spanish language, as well as my real passion: teaching.
I have travelled so much all over the world that speaking in other languages and adapting myself to people from different countries and cultures is no longer a problem, but it comes naturally to me. Don’t worry if you don’t speak any Spanish. Initially we can speak in english, french and portuguese.
I was awarded with a Master’s Degree in Teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language by Antonio de Nebrija University, in Madrid, and I am a certified DELE (Diplomas of Spanish as a Foreign Language) examiner.
I have years of experience in giving Spanish lessons to students with different ability levels, nationalities and occupations, particularly to diplomats and expatriates for work-related reasons.
Besides the Spanish language and literature, I would like to share with you some of my passions: music, films, and specially cooking (and eating!). On my blog, you will find easy grammar (and cooking) recipes, expressions and tips, which will help you to speak Spanish in social and professional events. But that it is not all, you will also find suggestions for books, films, places… And of course, for Seville.
He is Camarón, my dog. He is always laying at my feet while I am teaching. If you like dogs, we have a lot to talk about!
I currently live in Seville. If you live here too, we can meet at my place, your place or your company, as you wish. But do not worry if you live far from here. Spanish lessons via video conference bring as good results as face-to-face ones. You will be able to comfortably attend lessons from your office, embassy, consulate or home in order to save time.
