Spanish with Lorena
|languages||Catalan; Valencian, English, French, Japanese, Spanish|
I have devoted all my life to language teaching. I have a Degree in English by the University of Barcelona.
I have completed a course for teaching Spanish in International House Barcelona.
I have also completed training in Universidad Menendez Pelayo about how to include new technologies in language classes and how to use media for teaching Spanish.
In London I did PTTLS: Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector. Really interesting training about teaching adults and how to adapt our classes to different needs.
I have completed Foundations of Teaching for Learning by Commonwealth Education Trust (Coursera).
Finally I also did a training with International House about Teaching Spanish for Specific Purposes.
I keep on learning, specially from my students. I hope we can learn together soon.
Here you have some testimonials from my students:
"I had previously taken some lessons in Spanish a few years ago and was looking to pick-up where I left off. Lorena's classes are engaging, concise, she takes great consideration into how I want to learn (particularly as I'm very busy) and also sensitive to the fact I do find learning a language a challenge. However, after having now completed a few lessons over Skype (which is incredibly convenient for me), I now feel I'm on the way to acquiring a second language." Simon
"Lorena is a very effective and hard working teacher. I really enjoy learning
Spanish with her. She prepares each lesson carefully, with interesting and
creative tasks (e.g. making online surveys?!) which are really fun. Using Skype for lessons has also worked out much better than I thought it would!" Louise
Experience: 10 years
I'm Lorena. I'm a native Spanish teacher from Barcelona based in Okinawa. I have an English Degree and an extensive Spanish teaching training (International House, Instituto Cervantes...). I have devoted my professional life to education and I have plenty of experience in language teaching.
Are you looking for innovative and highly motivating classes with real and fun materials? Are you bored of attending the same classes all over again with repetitive and ineffective methods? Do you need a Spanish teacher that align with your level and schedule needs? Are you preparing a travel to Spain or South America and you want intensive classes? Do you need help to prepare for an exam? Get in contact with me, I would be very happy to give you more information about me or my methods.
Looking forward to hearing from you,
