About Marco

My name is Marco. I am from Chile and I teach Spanish as a foreign language. I have a MA in Applied Linguistics and a BA in translation. Some of my areas of expertise include grammar, literature, reading comprehension, written production and language acquisition. I know the different approaches to language teaching and put them into practice in my lessons. My experience in Italki has been really positive. I hope I can be a real contribution to your Spanish learning and look forward to meeting you soon.
