“Language is the road map of culture. It tells you where its people come from and where they are going.”
Rita Mae Brown
I am a graduate of the University of Valladolid in both Spanish philology and German philology. In Germany at the University of Freiburg I obtained my masters in Romanistik (a multidisciplinary study including Spanish philology, German philology, and art history).
I have more than 20 wonderful years of experience as a professor of Spanish as a second language, primarily in German universities. Currently I am on leave from the University of Sarre (German) where I have formed part of their Spanish language department within their Foreign Language Centre. In this capacity I have worked with students from A1 up to C1 covering diverse topics that have included: conversation skills and business Spanish.
Currently, I am an online professor of Spanish as a foreign language. In addition, I offer German lessons and work as a German-Spanish translator.
I am an official examiner for the Instituto Cervantes and as such I have overseen many exams. Furthermore, I am also an official preparer for the SIELE.
Beyond this, I am passionate about the language, but what I enjoy even more is a process in which the student learns in a fun and joyful fashion, the basis for continued motivation.

DELE and SIELE
