My name is Carolina. However, most people call me Carito. I am a Spanish teacher for foreigners and I am from Colombia. My mother tongue is Spanish. I have also learned French, Italian, Portuguese and English.
I have experience as a Spanish teacher at Sergio Arboleda University and in language institutes in Bogota and Oslo. Teaching is my passion and I thoroughly enjoy being a language teacher. In the years I have been abroad, I have worked with students in one-on-one lessons. I have lived in Hungary, Brazil, England, Germany, and Norway.
I have a bachelor’s degree in Modern Languages from the Pontificia Universidad Javeriana (Bogota, Colombia) and a diploma in Teaching Spanish Grammar as Foreign Language from Instituto Caro y Cuervo in Bogota. I also made an exchange in Brazil to learn Brazilian literature, grammar and pronunciation of Portuguese in the Pontifical Catholic University of São Paulo (PUC-SP).
Besides, I have a Master’s degree in outdoor education called Transcultural European Outdoor Studies (TEOS). This master's degree was awarded by Erasmus Mundus. I studied at the University of Cumbria (England), the University of Marburg (Germany) and the Norwegian School of Sport Sciences (Norway).

The master’s programme focused on the importance of outdoor environmental education for self-development, teamwork and sustainability. This was an Erasmus Mundus master, with a semester taking place in England, Norway and Germany.
