My name is Belén Martínez Botella.
I am a Spanish teacher
and the founder of Spanish BMB.

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 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!).

This is my story…

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.

Together we can develop a personalised course of study, so that you start immediately to succeed in Spanish events
