Comprehensive English: Conversation, grammar and reading comprehension

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
Normally the foreign language is learned in an unnatural way by focusing on grammar and writing, when in reality we know that a language is learned first by speaking and then by reading and writing. Just as young children do, remembering and associating.
Learning to use and enjoy a language is the basis for learning to read and write later. With this inversion of the order of the factors, the learning of grammatical rules and spelling is not forgotten, but rather they can be learned more easily as soon as they begin to acquire oral skills.

Xavier
English teacher. All levels and ages. Like teaching while learning.
Experience of more than 20 anys donant classes d'anglès i català a grups reduïts d'ESO i Batxillerat i classes de repàs in the sector de les Humanitats. I have been teaching English for many years. I have taught small groups and individuals for review (ESO and Bachillerato). I move. I am looking for stability and continuity for the entire course. Teaching is my vocation. In the mornings I work in a telemarketing company in BCN in a multicultural environment where English is our vehicular language and from 4pm I have availability. I am currently an English teacher at the English Studio Academy, in Cornellà de Llobregat in the afternoon shift. All levels and ages. I shuffle the possibility of dedicating myself to teaching also in the morning, as long as the offer for this time is of interest to me. In the afternoon shift I am autonomous. I am looking for stability and continuity in the Academy or similar for the entire course and in the summer. My name is Xavier. 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. English Studio, Academy of English in Barcelona, where I used to be a teacher until Covid 19 knocked at the door of our lives, and teachers and students had to be at home. Professional Objective: English teacher.   Morning shift: Professional experience More than 15 years in several Contact Centers as an Agent or as a Team Leader or Supervisor. Companies: Teletech, Telefono Permanente, MST, Teleperformance and Promofon. As a Team Leader / Supervisor: more than three years in Teleperformance and Promofon, (ONO), making sure the group of Agents were appropriatly trained and equipped to resolve doubts, problems and change requests; Makintg sure the team could respond effectively to Account Managers `requests for further information and, when necessary, take proactive action to ensure they were aware of an issue. And last but not least, every day monitoring work, keeping an eye on the activity of premium learners, ensuring the team was taking the necessary proactive action, either by phone or email. I had to support very often other colleagues in accordance with business needs and to share ideas to improve business practices and the quality of the service. More than 20 years as an English teacher. Also, Spanish, Catalan an Humanities subjects. Qualifications: Central University of Barcelona, Law Studies. Fluent English and intermediate level of French. Native level of Catalan and Spanish

Irene
Certified Spanish tutor with 10 years of experience. English, French, German and Russian spoken
Do you want to travel or live in Spain and feel confident? Do you have some trouble speaking and would like to work on your fluency? Are you preparing DELE or SIELE? You always wanted to learn Spanish and have decided that the time might be just now? I can help you! Some of my students were also in the same place as you. My name is Irene García Núñez. I come from Guadalajara, a town close to Madrid, but live in beautiful Barcelona. I understood very early that I like not only learning but also teaching languages and studied my Masters of Linguistics Applied to Teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language. I have lived in France, India, Germany and Russia teaching Spanish. During these 10 years of teaching, I learnt a lot about different methods, people and logics. I have a vast experience with very different students, their needs and the adequate resources for them. I know how to adapt my classes to what students want and need so they make the most of their time and money. I think it is very important for students to feel comfortable and safe. I like learning about my students′ personal interests so we can use them in the learning process. This way what we do and talk about makes sense and is relevant for them. I also speak English, French, German and Russian. I can explain in the student′ s mother tongue if necessary although my goal will be to speak Spanish from the very beginning with affordable exercises adapted to your level. I follow mainly a communicative approach though the goal pursued by the student is what defines the final design of the class. I love teaching and learning new languages because it brings us closer.

ENGLISH AND GERMAN CLASSES FOR WRITING AND SPEAKING - ALL AGES/ALL LEVELS
Growing up bilingual in German and English was as challenging as it was exciting and an experience that inspired my love for languages. Now I would love to share my knowledge on effortlessly mastering the ins and outs of these two infamous languages with you! The lessons are hands-on, easily understandable and true-to-life, so you can go and use what you've learned right away. Moreover, I like to customise the lessons to the topics and hobbies that interest you so that we can build progress on familiar sole, have you make better connections to the language and have an overall better learning experience. If it works with your schedule, I would also strongly recommend that we make homework a part of your class structure. I am confident we can use whatever foundation and experiences you have to help you meet your language goals - whether you just want to smooth out the kinks or start from the very beginning. You and I can figure this out together!

Sofia

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).

English, French, Catalan and Spanish; school support, learn at your own pace.
Notions and advanced content of the subject, according to level. You will learn to organize your study time for a better learning of the subject we are dealing with. It is about supporting the knowledge acquired and not understood in class, not to torment the student, and not to learn or with private lessons.

Jed
Accent Training and Conversation for Students and Professionals. (Intermediate level of English required)
Greetings students! I’m Jed, an experienced Interior Designer with 4 years of experience in teaching in an International School in Bangkok, Thailand. I lived in the US and Canada for a total of 6 years and I speak a bilingual level of English. For this course I will use a program that focuses on the vocal aspect of speaking english, you will learn the phonetics of different letter combinations with instructions on what to do with your mouth, tongue and breathing to be able to speak more clearly. Please note that I will not teach grammar. The goal of this class is to speak clear and easy to understand English with a neutral accent. What makes this course helpful to you as a student or a professional? Confidence! Being able to speak for university or professional presentations in public.

Anhelina
English lessons for beginner - intermediate levels (A1-B2) + Native Speaker
A passionate and creative student with more than 10 years of experience in communication in the English language. I am here to help you discover the world of English in a fun and very practical way. My main goal is to improve your speaking by using only English during our classes, as well as enhance your grammar, reading and listening skills. The classes with me are engaging and full of creativity. Moreover, I differentiate myself from other tutors by using my own methodology in teaching. My lessons are a combination of many books, where I pick the most efficient exercises to learn and make a personal "book" for each student depending on what requires more work. From time to time, I organise a group call/meeting, where my students and I communicate with each other over a cup of tea. That way, my scholars get to be in a multicultural environment, learning how to understand English with different accents and build connections with others in a new language. I have completed an IELTS (International English Language Testing System) examination in 2019 with a CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference) level of B2. In my last EF SET (EF Standart English Test) in 2022, the results have shown an Advanced English Level (C1). In addition, I have studied bachelor's in Psychology in English for 3 years. These days, English is my first language to use in day-to-day life, which allows me to practice it 24/7, always finding something new for myself to learn. As for the lessons themselves, they are online (Skype, worldwide) or face-to-face at the student's location (Barcelona). If you have any further questions, please, do not hesitate to send me a private message, I will always be happy to answer! See you soon! :)
