About Javier GC

GRAMMAR STRUCTURE ANALYSIS AND LANGUAGE COMPARISON I love to help beginner learners of different languages to understand how their new language works compared to their native language. POLYGLOTISM I love to help polyglot-wannabes in their efforts to study several languages simultaneously. I can offer multilingual conversation practice in several languages and orientation on how to deal with polyglotism. THAI LANGUAGE There are lots of teachers for most of my languages, so I would like to offer Thai lessons to beginners or pre-intermediate learners. I can teach/help you with vocabulary, pronunciation, grammar, reading, writing and conversation. *Explanations can be in English or Spanish (French, German, Portuguese and Italian are also possible, though I will probably combine them with English).

    Paedagogic Aptitude Certificate, which licenses you to teach some specialty (in my case, I chose "English as a Second Language") in High Schools in Spain. For a year, you are trained in teaching methods, paedagogy and psychology of the student. And then you have to develop a project and carry it out at some schools.
