HELPS YOU START SPEAKING SPANISH
Núria, how can you help me?
I’ve been teaching Spanish for over 18 years. Wow, time flies by!
Why did I become a Spanish teacher, and most importantly, how can I help you?
I guess without knowing it, it all started when I was a language student myself. I remember years of studying English at school, being bored to death learning long list of verbs: break - broke - broken … I’m sure you get the gist.
The first time I went to England to practice my English, I remember the journey from the airport to the house I was staying in.
It all looked so quaint to me. There I was, being charmed by the scenery. I felt as if I were in an Agatha Christie’s story. The spell was broken though, by the time I met my host. What did he say? I don’t know to this day. I guess he was just being polite and asking me how I was. I didn’t understand him. I felt awkward and embarrassed. After so many years of studying English at school, I couldn’t speak the language.
Let’s fast forward the story. I went back to England for a few more visits and eventually I moved to London for 6 years. There I worked, and studied Linguistics and Spanish at Birkbeck college, University of London. Came back to Barcelona with my Scottish boyfriend, today my husband, and trained as a Spanish teacher.
Shall we practice Spanish together?
I’ve been in your shoes.
I know about the frustrations of learning a foreign language, the awkwardness and the embarrassment. That’s why I made it a personal commitment to make sure my students always feel at ease and enjoy the process of learning Spanish. I believe learning a language is a gift that you give to yourself.
