After many years teaching English to Spaniards in a very formal environment (EEOOII), I can now use all my past experience to help native English speakers learn Spanish online. The more specific your learning needs (or issues), the better.

About Marta lang.clas

My background is in my user profile


→ Knowledge of the STUDENT'S MOTHER TONGUE is core to my teaching. I can deal much better with students' mistakes if I can speak their native language.

→ BEGINNERS are my favourite students. I enjoy helping with the FIRST STAGES of language learning really a lot. With ADVANCED LEVELS it’s a very different story.

→ I strongly believe in the usefulness of a SOLID FOUNDATION and the future benefits of having built it carefully, STEP BY STEP from the very BEGINNING.

→ I also believe in the usefulness of promoting CORRECTION (and automatic responses) of some core parts of the language.

→ I don’t have a fixed syllabus or a set of prepared lessons (usual concept of STRUCTURE). Rather, I try to create a personalised framework to hold what the student already knows and help them take the next learning step. For this job I need the student’s strong involvement and maybe some other SELF LEARNERS’ features.

→ Very often, unconscious ineffective learning strategies hinder improvement. By raising AWARENESS OF THE LEARNING PROCESS, many learning issues can be fixed. With students that are happy to learn about, and be in control of, their own learning processes I can usually work much better.

→ I do work on conversation but I don't think 'CONVERSATIONAL' defines what I do.

→ I agree that exams are an excellent tool to orient language learning and can work with that. However, if your exam is around the corner and the EXAM PREPARATION is your only focus, you'll be safer with another teacher.

→ I perform much better over the LONG RUN than over the short run.

→ I can’t work MIRACLES.
