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.

Paula Corella
Spanish private lessons in Utrecht and surroundings
I am Paula, 26 years old, from Barcelona, and I would be pleased to be your Spanish teacher here in the Netherlands :) I have been living in Utrecht for more than a year and I have been teaching here the whole time. I am very flexible with the schedule and the structure of the lessons since I try to adapt to each person's needs. I have a few useful books that I follow for the lessons, normally one that provides the main structure and the others for extra exercises and games. - If you are a beginner we will use different materials to learn vocabulary, first useful expressions and basic grammar while, every now and then, having fun with some games. I always give homework and (if adult) I expect the learner to be independent in this sense. Send me a message if you are interested :) Hasta pronto! Paula

Francina
Μαθήματα Ισπανικών και Καταλανικών από Ισπανίδα φιλόλογο. Spanish and Catalan classes, native speaker.
Tο όνομά μου είναι Francina, είμαι από τη Μαγιόρκα (Ισπανία) και πρόσφατα μετακόμισα στην Αθήνα. Προσφέρω μαθήματα ισπανικών και καταλανικών για όλα τα επίπεδα και τις ηλικίες. 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.

Noelia Salcedo
Catalan and Spanish for beginners and advanced students
In my classes I will be happy to teach whatever the student is up to. Having the interests of the learner before the class in order to have time to prepare some activities and materials, I am open to teach both Catalan and Spanish as I am bilingual. If students want to learn grammar and vocabulary, or they are more interested in slang, or they even want to learn about cultural elements, I am open to everything. As I don’t know Dutch, the lessons must be in English; but if the student is advanced I will speak Spanish or Catalan, however, if any misunderstanding I will change to English. I am a student with a degree in Humanities, so I know a lot about literature, history, art and philosophy, so if the student needs help with these subjects it would not be a problem at all.

Ona Pascual
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 also I’ve taught in the context of cultural associations and the French 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.

Elia
Spanish or Catalan lessons for beginners - STOCKHOLM
Spanish / Catalan native girl living in Stockholm. As I don't speak Swedish, our lessons will be in English. In our classes we will practice: - Grammar (can be difficult at the beginning but we'll try to make it as easy as possible). - Conversation in standard Spanish or Catalan (Practice is a must) - Culture (is an important way to get to know other countries better) Please let me know if there is any particular interest you may have to add to our lessons.

Cristina
Catalan and Spanish for all ages and levels by a native speaker
This class is for anyone who wishes to learn Catalan and Spanish, regardless of age and current level. Do you plan to become a master of the language of Ramon Llull or Miguel de Cervantes, or do you simply need a crash course for that upcoming test? Leave it to me! :) I try my best to tailor my classes to each person's strengths and weaknesses: the first step is always an informal interview to get to know each other, get a general picture of the current state of play and then properly customise the following lessons. Some people have it easier with more “standard” classes, while others need more unconventional lessons. I pay close attention to the student’s learning process: do they remember words better when they hear them, or when they see them written down? How long do they need to get into the lesson, and for how long can they keep their attention? Are there any underlying misconceptions that are hindering their improvement? To me, it's very important to keep the student's motivation up. I honestly believe that an easy-going and relaxed environment is key for anyone to learn. Patience, active listening and appreciation from my side are a given in order to keep shame and discomfort out of the room.

Catalan Language and Culture: a Practical and Fun Course
Catalan is a romance language used by more than 11 million in Europe. Nowadays Catalan is fashionable because of its social movement in Catalunya, the fame of Barcelona and the multiple touristic attractions. In this course, the learning process is practical and combined with an immersion on the Catalan culture. My method is based in creating visual scenarios in which you will discover the words to use and the right way to make sentences in that situation. Once we can have a small conversation in that scenario, we will repeat it at the next meeting and it will be included in our "refresh quarter" which is a 15 minute revision on all the words and ways of saying that you keep learning. My focus is on connecting the language to your needs and wishes to make sure the learning is well grounded.

Learn Spanish / Catalan through your favorite topic
Learning a new language can be bored and disappointing. However, it could be very exciting! Let's do it! We will learn Spanish or Catalan class using music, cinema, Spanish History, Barcelona, Catalunya, football, or basketball as a vehicle of knowledge. Or whatever you need! I prepare the classes in particular to each student, according to the level, the hobbies, and the age, of course. The first class is a kind of interview, with the parents or the student, or both, and it's for knowing ourselves in order to see the options and clarify the purposes and the goals. Enjoy learning Castellano or Català!

Spanish and Catalan online classes for all levels. Native speaker
Learning languages can be hard and frustrating. Wether you want to learn instrumental Spanish or Catalan just for fun or work hard to get that certificate you need, we can make this journey fun and interesting. I think there are not bad learners but teachers who have not adapted enough. That is why I believe the best way of teaching is getting to know our learners both as studients and people. Therefore, creativity and commitment are key to me.
