About me:
  1. Are you from Salamanca?
    No, I was born in a town called Cáceres but I grew up in the Basque country and came to Salamanca to finish my studies.
  2. What did you study?
    I began studying Classics in the Basque country but I then decided to change to Spanish Philology.
  3. How long have you lived in Salamanca?
    About 30 years.
  4. Where would you recommend going in Salamanca?
    I love the courtyards in Salamanca (Fonseca, Escuelas Menores, Anaya,…) but I recommend going to the convents, especially the Convento de las Dueñas. Don’t forget to bring your camera to take lots of photos!

    Nothing special, I like listening to music and spending time with friends.

  1. How long have you been teaching at ISLA?
    I have been here since the beginning and we are celebrating our 25th anniversary.

    Getting to know new people and learning about other cultures and experiences.

    I will continue teaching and improve the way I teach by introducing more useful methods.
