Perfectly tailored Spanish lessons for Beginners-Intermediate (A1-B2)
*For syllabus of course, check below Language is an art and culture. This is one of the biggest realizations i have made during my journey to become a polyglot (Until now I'm improving my Dutch, and I know Spanish, English, French, and Arabic). Therefore, I like to share that passion I have through teaching Spanish the most, as it is one of the most beautiful languages I know. I prepared a fun and in-depth course specifically tailored for beginner/intermediate Spanish learners. This course tackles grammatical rules (starting with the present), pronunciations, and differences between Spain and Latin America. Moreover, I also like to teach some interesting facts about numerous Spanish-speaking countries, since as I said, language is culture too. A small overview of my course: My course is divided into 3 phases (Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced). Kindly note that throughout these courses, always new vocabulary will be taught. Beginner: Greetings, the personal pronouns, the present form, reflexive verbs, numbers from 1 till 1,000, the past simple, imperfect, present perfect and their different usage. Regular verbs and the three verb forms, important irregular verbs, different usage of some verbs (ser/estar), (traer, llevar) Casual conversations in different scenarios (to present oneself, to ask for directions...) Intermediate: Elaboration on adjectives, adverbs, demonstrative pronouns, personal pronouns, numbers from 1,000+. In-depth into verb conjugations: present perfect, past perfect, conditional. Conjugation in conditional statements. Introduction to the subjunctive that indicates uncertainty, and the imperative that indicates an order. Casual conversations in daily life Advanced: Here, practice will make perfect. Overview of everything learned, with elaboration on tougher verb tenses, such as the present perfect and past perfect in the subjunctive form. More detailed vocabulary.

Meri
Flute and Piccolo lessons (They can also be in Spanish!)
Hello everyone! My name is Meri, and I come from Spain. I am now studying in Leuven my Master on Flute Performance. I have already finished my degree on Flute and Music Pedagogy. I have been 7 years teaching and I honestly love it, I love kids, music and of course playing the flute, that’s why I choosed this line for my life. My method is really open since I fully adapt to the needs and interests of the person I am teaching. During this 7 years of teaching I have been in 4 schools and I had a lot of particular lessons, that results into having a lot of material to work with (for flute and also for music theory). As I am studying my master now, I can teach from a basic level until an advanced one. The lessons can be focused on preparing some auditions, or simply having a great time with the flute and the music and playing songs or themes that you are interested with! An of course, we can combine both! In any case, we can discuss about what you expect, need or want from the lessons and I will happily adapt my lessons to your needs!
