Deutsches Sprachdiplom C2 & 10 years of teaching experience in Spanish, German and English
italki teacher since Nov 23, 2021
Hi my name is Macarena Mejía and I'm a community tutor here on italkie, I've been a language teacher for German, Spanish and English for almost 8 years now. I'm a medical student about to get my medical degree. I have a profound passion for languages and for how the brain and our bodies work, so by combining these two started asking myself: "how do babies acquire languages without studying?"
Me as a Teacher
If it's not ENJOYABLE, it's not right.
Language learning is supposed to be FUN, if it isn't, it's just because you are doing it WRONG.
I've learnt languages throughout my life and I know how stressful classrooms can be. That's why you can be sure that with me as a teacher you are not going to feel like you are taking lessons.
Acquiring a language is peaceful, enjoyable and exciting... let me show you how I do it.
My lessons & teaching style
I give two different lesson types:
1. Conversation practice:
- We can talk about any topic (I can propose it or you can)
- For example, I do medical conversation practice
2. Personalized fluent plan:
- We will talk about your goals, your available study time, your personal interests and I will design a personalized plan for you.
- Personalized study guide
- Online google document
- Personalized content for you tu immerse yourself in your target language (this includes: books, podcasts, youtube channels, articles, movies, tv shows and exclusive learning materials)
- The opportunity to have someone who is as concerned as you to acquire your target language.

Great lesson! Macarena's approach is so smart and effective and her positive and encouraging attitude really makes me want to study and practice as much as I can.

Heer teaching style is very different from the typical teaching style I am used to but very helpful for the way I learn. I am so excited to continue learning from her

Macarena went out of her way to provide helpful language instruction, not only during our class, but before and after. I hadn’t realized our trial class was just 1/2 hour, yet she was kind enough to keep talking until 10 minutes before her next one (Sorry about that!). Her conversations were very engaging. She has a breadth of knowledge on a variety of interesting topics.
