Hello! My name is Amparo. I am from Valencia (Spain)
I have lived in three different countries: England, Portugal and France so I know how difficult can be to start learning a new language when you are a foreigner. I love to meet new people and to discover new cultures so I become a spanish teacher and I love my job
Now I have 2 years experience teaching spanish for absolute beginners and beginners (A1/A2)
I am Cervantes Institute certified Spanish teacher but I’m always looking forward to learning new methods to teach Spanish as a foreign language in an easy and funny way.
My style of teaching is interactive and dynamic creating simple and specific classes where you can learn and practise the spanish for real life
How do you prefer learning? I can adapt the classes depending on your preferences and goals.
I will be in contact with you by e-mail to solve any doubt that you have.
What I offer in my lessons?
You will practice the four skills: reading, listening, writing and speaking.
The content belong to the A1-A2 Spanish CEFR and to Plan Curricular Instituto Cervantes. I organize all this content in 9 units.
Every lesson you take contains three parts:
1. Introductions. Every language content (grammar structures, vocabulary…) will be introducted in a communicative context. You will learn it inductively: I will guide you during these introductions and you will conclude (with my help) the rules and the communicative use by yourself.
2. Practises. Once is introducted and you have concluded their communicative use and form, it will have to be practised with exercises (Formal exercises that are focused on practicing the language form, and communicative exercices that are focused on using the language content in a communicative context).
3. Revisions. Out of class, you will have to revise this content on a regular basis. My revisions are the typical homework but with a use of technology (read further).
At the end of this course you will be an official A2 Spanish student. I offer you the opportunity of taking exam to check "officially" that you have achieved your goals.
