I’m Cristina, a polyglot (fluent in 7 languages and currently studying other 2) and certified foreign languages teacher from Barcelona. Learning and teaching has always been my passion as well as my job because I think there’s always room for improvement and practice makes perfect. I have experience in language academies, banks, schools, companies, groups of all ages and one-to-one tuitions.
My method or 10 key points to success:
. Pre-Assessment of your level, strengths and weaknesses in your first lesson and Continuous Assessment to verify your improvements or detect doubts you might still have in every lesson.
. Learning in an encouraging, comfortable and friendly atmosphere with an extremely supportive teacher.
. Selected materials and tailor-made lessons to cover your needs.
. Developing multiple skills in every lesson: reading, writing, speaking, listening, grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation.
. Enhancing learner’s autonomy by developing healthy study routines, time management, memorizing techniques and ways to continue practicing after our lesson.
. Authentic materials and course tasks to replicate real communication and situations, always with a guided and structured conversation.
. A language focus part in every lesson (grammar or vocabulary) is fundamental, because accuracy is as important as fluency.
. Discovering and reflecting about the target-language culture is a basic part of learning a new language.
. Organization and planning while setting your goals at the beginning of your language-learning adventure.
. Constant feedback between student and teacher concerning difficulties, tastes, needs, etc.
. General language lessons for those students willing to improve at 360°.
. English, French and Spanish Test preparation lessons for those who want to get a certification.
. Conversation lessons, if you only need to maintain your level and achieve fluency.
. Business lessons for professionals to perform efficiently in their target language.
. The Polyglot Experience for those looking for the greatest challenge ever – having a conversation in multiple languages, constantly switching.
