Hi there! I am Javier, I am from Bogotá, Colombia. I am a certified Spanish teacher from International House Barcelona, I’ve been teaching foreigner students for about 7 years, I have had the opportunity to teach students of all levels and of all nationalities; including preparing them for international exams.
I am an open-minded and flexible person, I like art, music and culture in general. My lessons are communicative based on topics of different interests and multiculturality, this way, we can explore the real use of the language and thus understand its fundamentals. I also approach to understand the students needs working on their proper communication necessities, focusing the goals by having an engaging class in order to create an appropriate learning environment.
I always run a diagnosis lesson, so I can develop a personal plan evaluating the process needed in different ways; always within a friendly atmosphere of conversation where the student has the main role. Finally, I use specific didactic books which include audios and oral production, in addition to some materials that I have developed myself through my years of experience. Learning must be as fun as it has to be challenging. Welcome to my Spanish lessons!
