Hi! My name is Fernando. I was born in Spain, in La Rioja, a Northern region famous by its wine as well as for being the cradle of Spanish in the Monasteries of San Millán de la Cogolla. That's why I love to teach people like you to master my language and learn my culture. Throughout my life I have learned languages for work, business, travel and fun . This led me to take classes and make language exchanges. And finally, I became a graduated Spanish teacher to help others to master Spanish.
I can offer you classes tailored to your needs and preferences. I am a patient, organized, methodical, conversational and fun person. I can prepare both informal and casual classes for you to practice your Spanish and a structured and organized class calendar to achieve specific improvement objectives. And if you want to chat, we can talk about the news, comment on movies, series and novels, or discuss about various topics: science, technology, sports, economy, music … let's decide it together!
My teaching keys are:
1. Full immersion in Spanish so that your brain assimilates the language faster
2. The use of visual presentations easier to understand by your brain to learn faster
3. The use of your tastes and preferences, hobbies and passions
I just want to add that my teaching philosophy is based on that learning has to be fun. Learning a language is immerse yourself in a new culture, different and exciting. It is a travel through words. And I want to guide you in this wonderful trip!
