Why I teach languages

Nowadays it is essential to learn one or more foreign languages, as languages are used in almost all areas of knowledge and human development. When you learn another language, you can enjoy traveling even more, communicate with residents, do business in a more professional and effective way, and simplify integration if you want to settle in another country.

I love helping other people communicate in a foreign language, and it is important to me that the students enjoy themselves while they learn a new language. In addition, I can also teach the student a lot about the people, culture, history and customs in Mexico when teaching the language. I go through the main four skills needed when learning a new language, which are listening, speaking, reading and writing but I adapt the classes to the student´s needs and focus. A personalized teaching methodology enables a more efficient learning.

Why I recommend Guadalajara as a course location

I love Guadalajara, I was born, here and it is the city I live in. I can say that I am proud to be “Tapatia” (demonym for people born in Guadalajara). It is a big city with all the advantages big cities offer, like museums and cultural events, sports clubs, spacious parks, a wide range of restaurants and cafes, modern cinemas, active nightlife ... and yet Guadalajara also offers tranquility and enough opportunities to relax and enjoy a slow pace. In addition, I find the historic centre to be very pretty, and in the vicinity of the city there are several attractive destinations such as the Chapala Lake, the mountain village Tapalpa, the Santiago Gorge and the town of Tequila, where the famous drink is made. The people here are very warm and hospitable, you will feel really comfortable and welcome.
