Su di me

Hello! I am Manuel Casanova, a Teacher of Spanish to Speakers of Other Languages. For many years I have developed my career in the tourism industry and I have lived in the Dominican Republic, Haiti, Canada and Finland.


Since 2015, I am exclusively commited to the teaching of Spanish to foreigners. I own over 800 hours of face-to-face lessons and 1,900 hours of certified training including a Master of Science in Applied Linguistics / Teaching of Spanish as a Foreign Language. Among them, I have gathered over 180 hours of specific training in online teaching and editing of learning materials. I am also accredited by the Instituto Cervantes as a DELE examiner.


I am fluent in English and French. I enjoy learning about different cultures, watching movies or documentaries, reading, exercising and listening to music. Furthermore, I love Spanish.

The aim of my lessons is that students are able to perform a task. It could go from something as simple as «greeting and introducing themselves» (beginner level), to «soften an expression of disagreement» (intermediate level).

The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) measures the language proficiency of people who want to study or work where English is used as a language of communication. It uses a nine-band scale to clearly identify levels of proficiency, from non-user (band score 1) through to expert (band score 9).
