Su di me

Hello and welcome!

My name is Daniel, and I am a Professional in Modern Languages and a Master in Translation. I come from Bogotá, Colombia, and I would like to tell you why learning languages with me is a good idea.

First of all, I am passionate about languages and teaching. I like to see language teaching as an ideal setting to exchange cultures, share experiences, and build knowledge. Your desire to learn a new language and my eagerness to share knowledge can help us become a great team!

Secondly, your classes are planed based on your needs. I can adjust contents considering your way of learning and topics of interest. I know that learning a language is not always easy, but we can make it enjoyable!

Finally, you can improve your pragmatic competence. Research on second language acquisition encourages teachers to teach pragmatics (proper use of language in a given context). Let’s talk about language and culture!

In line with my language background and taking advantage of my experience as a translator, this is what I offer you in Spanish:

* Talk about your topics of interest
* Improve your pronunciation
* Learn and use idiomatic expressions
* Work on your presentation skills
* Get prepared for job interviews
* Perfect your language skills for business purposes
* Understand and use grammar properly –from A1 to C2–
* Improve reading and writing skills

I can also help you improve your English language skills as stated in the list above (from A1 to C1), and we can use my knowledge of French and Italian to leverage your learning process.

I invite you to book a trial class to get to know each other, talk about your language needs, and organize your classes. ¡Nos vemos pronto!

Oh, there are three interesting facts about the Spanish language in my introduction video. ¡No te los pierdas!
