About Me

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
I was born in Barcelona ... a long time ago. I grow up in this town, but now I live a bit far from here. I studied at the University of Barcelona and in Huddersfield (near Shefield, Halifax, Leeds, Manchester, Liverpool, ... not very far from York: quite nice places and better people), and I've been teaching Catalan, Spanish, Phillsofy , History and English for a long time ... since I was 16. What happened? Very short, I promise: I was walking down the street two years ago, from just opposite this private school, and I thought myself: well, you might enter this place and see. I like English language very much ... and the UK, ... but I don't have a poster of the Queen on my bedroom's wall. It was a sort of a blind date. And there she was: her smile, her diligence, effectiveness. Eva listened to me. And after two weeks she was texting me for a class. "Please, Xavier, can you cover for some classes?" And here I am. (That was two years and a half ago, at the Academy English Studio where I have been an English teacher for more than two years, untill 13th March, when the lady in charge said literally that she would pass my 59 students to another teacher because I had no Internet at home, as I had recently moved to another town and had not had time to set the Internet, and nobody could have possibly known about that horrible and destructive confinement). More than 20 years teaching and learning with my students. Online classes. Spanish and Catalan teacher, too.

Aina
Catalan classes for any level taught by native speaker
Hi! I'm Aina, a 24-year-old Catalan native speaker currently doing a master's degree at both Helsinki and Copenhagen Universities. My objective is for you to make the most of the lessons. That is why I will personalize your classes by adapting them to your needs: we can speak about your specific goals and discuss the best way to achieve them. I can help you with pronunciation, conversation and fluency, grammar, vocabulary, writing, reading, listening... or a combination of everything. If you are interested, while learning Catalan I can also introduce you to the culture, history and traditions of Catalonia. Don't hesitate to contact me with any doubt you may have. Fins aviat (see you soon)! :)

Noemi
Tuition of Catalan; discovery of language and culture.
- Currently a student in a Master's degree in Public Administration, I graduated from a double license in law/LEA (applied foreign languages) and a year of hypokhâgne (preparatory class for the Grandes Ecoles). I therefore think I have the necessary resources to best help young students at the college/high school level to reinforce their learning and increase their results. - In addition to my training, given that I am trilingual (Spanish, French and Catalan) and that I am of Catalan origin, this course is mainly aimed at learning the language (written and oral) and its culture; history, links to current events, etc. - These courses can therefore be used both for students curious to know more about this identity and for those who already have some basics. - My way of teaching (homework, interventions, type of exercises...) will adapt according to the expectations and needs of the student.

Meritxell
Language teacher (Spanish, Catalan or English) in Belgium
Teacher of Spanish and Catalan (mother tongues) and English based in Ghent, I offer group lessons (in small groups) and private lessons for all levels and all ages online or at home (I am transported) . With a long international experience as a language teacher for individuals, but also in language schools such as Berlitz, International House or even for the CNED, I will be able to meet your needs with individualized strategies. Through audio, video or written media, students will be able to develop their written and oral comprehension skills in a modern and fun way. You understood ! If you want to sing "Vamos a la playa" and "Me gustas tú" well, know how to do las patatas bravas, understand series like Élite or read Don Quixote in the original version, don't hesitate to contact me!

Queralt
Learn Spanish (and/or Catalan) in a simple and fun way
Spanish is a very useful language. It will allow you to communicate with people from many different countries. With an easy and flexible method, we will go through the basics you need in order to learn this language. If you already have some knowledge of Spanish, we will focus on improving it progressively. If you are curious about Catalan, I can also help with that! Method: daily work, vocabulary, easy but useful sentences, music, applied activities and more.

Laura
Learn the language with a local teacher who will adapt to your needs! :)
I am a multilingual translator who has been working as a language teacher for 4 years now. As my parents are Spanish (Catalan) and French, I am native in the three languages. I have also studied abroad, so I have a C2 level in English (with the Proficiency Certificate). Hence, I also prepare students for all the Cambridge English exams (First Certificate-B2, Advanced-C1 and Proficiency-C2).

Marta
Private Spanish or conversation classes online
Hello! I am Marta and I come from Barcelona, Spain. I have given private lessons in Spanish, English, Catalan and other subjects (biology, mathematics) in my native country since I was 17 years old. Now, after obtaining my university degree, I continue to teach private Spanish classes both in person and online. I always look for student motivation in all my classes, so that they are dynamic and effective. Whether you are looking to reinforce the language or if you just want a conversation class, do not hesitate to contact me! I teach classes at any level, age and for any reason, I always try to adapt the class to the student.

Ona
Learn CATALAN ONLINE with a certified native teacher
I am a native teacher from Barcelona, with a degree in History and as a Spanish teacher for foreigners. I have been teaching Spanish and Catalan private lessons for over 10 years, but I’ve also taught in the context of cultural associations and the French and Catalan national education. I am always happy to be part of my students’ learning journey; no matter what level you have, we will learn plenty of things together! :) I offer dynamic Catalan online classes adapted to each person and their needs. My lessons are oriented to all levels, using the language in real and pedagogic contexts. As a teacher, I am very interested in letting my students learn not only the language but also the Catalan culture, as it is a fundamental aspect to really be able to succeed in the learning process. In order to do so, we will work on all the different competences (oral and writing skills), grammar and vocabulary, of course, but also I like to use some real texts, videos, songs, etc., so we can get the chance to learn from real instructional materials and discuss the news and culture. The most important thing is to try to communicate in Catalan so you will become more and more fluent. We will get there step by step! I’ve helped a lot of students pass their exams, prepare their interviews and resumes, or just be comfortable in their oral practise. I am used to teach a language from scratch, I have long experience teaching high levels as well. Please, contact me for further information and let me know how I can help you.

Αποφοίτησα στην Ιστορία της Τέχνης από το Πανεπιστήμιο της Βαρκελώνης και έχω εκτεταμένη διδακτική εμπειρία, ειδικά για υποστήριξη στην μάθημα . Στα μαθήματά μου, μου αρέσει να δίνω μια σφαιρική άποψη της γλώσσας στον μαθητή, συμπεριλαμβανομένων ασκήσεων λεξιλογίου, γραμματικής και προφοράς, κατασκευάζοντας κάθε μάθημα με βάση τα ενδιαφέροντα και τις ανάγκες κάθε μαθητή. My name is Francina, I'm from Mallorca (Spain) and I recently moved to Athens. I offer Spanish and Catalan lessons for all levels and ages. I graduated in History of Art from Barcelona University and I have extensive teaching experience, especially for classroom support. In my lessons, I like to give a global view of the language to the student, including vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation exercises, whilst constructing every class based on the interests and needs of every student.

Hi everyone, I am moving from Barcelona, Spain, to Denmark to study for a master's. I am young and motivated to catch you in my native language and culture (Spanish or Catalan).

They have a nice time with some random stories and games that pop up in my mind during lessons.
