Sobre mí

Hi! I'm Allison. I'm a native English speaker from the United States, living in Spain. I've been tutoring students from around the world in conversational English for over a year now. Because I love it so much, I decided to earn a certificate to teach English as a foreign language (TESOL). I'm taking the in the second half of my TESOL studies now.

They say that 20% of language learning should spent learning the rules (like grammar and vocabulary), and 80% should be practice. That's what I'm here for! As a foreign language learner myself, I personally find this to be true. I spent a year learning Spanish in the classroom, but it wasn't until I found a really nice lady to talk to outside of the classroom that I developed a relationship with Spanish. We talked about subjects that interest me and use vocabulary relevant to my life. Because I felt comfortable with her, I got over my nerves and just talked, even if I wasn't perfect. The point is to communicate. Plus, even Native English speakers don't speak perfectly. That's a secret language teachers never tell you. ;)

So let's practice together! What do you say? Hope to see you on the Verbling platform!
