Sobre mim

Hello everybody! I am Claudia Balleza, a Mexican living in France. I am delighted to be part of this community for almost 2 years now and I am eager to share with you my passion for languages, as well as my experience in learning and teaching them.

Back in Mexico, I obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Modern Languages. It helped me acquire a variety of methods and approaches for teaching Spanish, English and French to a wide range of publics: children, teens and adults. My initiative drove me to start teaching long before having my degree, and I graduated having 2 years of teaching experience. Since then, my background has not stopped getting rich: I have taught in Primary Schools, High Schools, Universities, and in private classes for about 7 years, of which 2 have been online. All of this added up to my passion for traveling and sharing with other cultures makes me aware of the international challenges and opportunities of our time.

What about Spanish? In 2016 I worked as a language Assistant in France in 2 different high schools. I was renowned among the students and my colleagues for bringing enthusiastic and original activities to the class, both for practicing Spanish and for knowing Mexican culture. Presently, I continue giving Spanish and English classes to French students, as well as to people of all ages, interests and backgrounds from all over the world!

My concern is making my students feel how learning a foreign language can be a real delight; because languages are dynamic, rich and flexible... as life itself. This is why I try to combine the 4 linguistic skills suggested by the CEFRL (oral and written comprehension and production), but I also adapt them to my students’ priorities.

I always include authentic documents from daily life (newspapers, radios, music, Netflix) and try to make the student produce as much as possible.

Lastly, I encourage them to be persistent all along their learning and help them to embrace Spanish (or any other language) as a part of their everyday life.

If I could do it, why couldn’t you?
