Teacher of Spanish Lenguage and Spanish Guitar (flamenco)
Hi! I am a Spanish guy. I'm here in Leuven and if you want to improve your Spanish or your level of guitar (Spanish guitar) don't doubt and call me. I'm being guitar teacher more than 10 years, and I've been a spanish teacher about 1, working with Erasmus people in Madrid.

Would you like to learn Spanish for your next trip or because you would like to broaden your skills with this United Nation's official language? My name is Juan, and I will be helping you with this project! I offer both individual or group private lessons and I'm very flexible with location and time! I am a native speaker from Colombia (the best and most neutral Spanish, according to experts). I hold a degree in Psychology from an British university and my interest led me to focus on the linguistic aspects of this discipline, therefore, I enjoy working as a language private tutor. My expertise is teaching both English and Spanish, and my teaching methods are always tailored to the pupil's needs. I enjoy teaching formal and academic language, however, I am also very successful with beginners. My wife is half French and half British, as a result, this trilingual situation has enabled me to travel a lot and to get to know cultural differences that are expressed through language. Moreover, the experience of teaching Spanish to her personally has provided me the essential knowledge I need to be able to transmit all the diverse aspects of this tongue that are usually impossible to reach in normal languages institutes. I believe it is important that the teacher masters the target native language in order to succeed in the teaching of more complex expressions and idioms, as well as to have a dynamic and quick, but effective, learning experience. I will, therefore, be able to teach you a high level of this language, plus the differences between the Spanish spoken in both Spain and the whole Latin america through lots of fun and engaging activities! I hope you are ready to start this journey and together we will achieve your goals with this fantastic language!
