About my job:
  1. Do you have any advice for learning Spanish?
    Live in a Spanish-speaking country.
  2. What do you most like about your job?
    I love the fact that I am around people of different nationalities who speak different languages, as it makes me feel close to other parts of the world when I learn about different cultures. I have also spent a lot of time abroad teaching Spanish and it has helped me to keep my Spanish roots by sharing my own language and culture.
  3. What has been the most interesting experience in your training?
    All of the places that I have worked in have given me experiences that have helped to expand my knowledge and improve my teaching methods. From a personal point of view, one of the most interesting and rewarding experiences would have to be working in rural communities in Cuzco (Peru) where I worked for 8 months on different projects (education, health, tourism and many others).
  4. For you, what is the most important thing about teaching Spanish as a foreign language?
    Firstly, I believe teaching languages should involve promoting interaction amongst students by making them interested and motivating them to learn. I believe the best way to do this is to create a relaxed atmosphere in the classroom and form a good relationship with my students.
