Additional information

A lawyer by training, I have taught Spanish as a Foreign Language since 2005. Born and raised in Chile, since I was a child, I have studied English as well as French and German, and always loved languages and their relevance in getting to know about other people and cultures. Once living in this country I found out how rewarding it was to teach a language and share your culture with other people, understanding first hand, the difficulties people can experience. For this reason, I try to inspire in students the confidence and courage to “dare” to communicate in Spanish, providing them with the tools they need in the most practical and attractive way possible.
