Have you spent years going to class but still find it hard to understand real spoken English?
I help Spanish speakers improve their communicative confidence and clarity through conversational tasks and activities specifically designed around your needs and interests. Together we can make your language breakthrough.
Learning a language is not like learning mathematics, science, or history. It is more like learning how to play the piano, it is something that is acquired through doing. The only way to learn a language is to expose yourself to it, at a level that is challenging but understandable to you, and to do it a lot. The more you expose yourself to English, the more you become accustomed to it and the more it becomes a part of you, the more natural it becomes to use it.
I teach English the way that native speakers learn it, through conversation and by actually using it to communicate. Out of class I will ask you to read, listen or watch authentic English texts, videos, or podcasts that are suitable for your level. In class we will discuss them. I will provide simple feedback as we go along. We will not spend a lot of time revising grammar rules, memorising lists of vocabulary, or talking about English. Instead we will be using English, and the more you use it the more your ability will improve.
I am interested in learning and teaching languages and have taught English online, and in schools, academies, and businesses in various locations across Spain. I also have the Cambridge University CELTA English teaching qualification. If you are interested in learning English with me please feel free to get in touch.
