"¡Hola! ¿Qué tal? My name is Belén and I am from Madrid, the (other) city that never sleeps.
After obtaining my BA in Translation and Interpreting at Universidad Alfonso X el Sabio I trained as a teacher of Spanish as a second language at Universidad Complutense de Madrid. I moved to the UK in 2013 and qualified as a teacher at Kingston University in 2015. Since then I have worked at a number of secondary schools teaching Modern Foreign Languages and in December 2017 I decided I also wanted to teach adults.
I like my lessons to be dynamic and fun and I encourage my students to ask questions, reflect upon their progress and take pride in their achievements. Every little step counts!"

This is the first course in our A2 Elementary levels 4-6. It’s a 20 hour course over 10 weeks aimed at students who have already completed A1 levels 1, 2 and 3. You will follow an established model of teaching through spoken and written activities, extra reading, tests, reviews, ideas, and games in pairs or groups.
We use powerful learning tools such as presentations, images, videos and audio tapes that stimulate our lessons and encourage students to engage with each other in developing the four essential skills – reading, speaking, listening and writing.
This was a really worthwhile trip and I would recommend it to anyone wanting to brush up on their Spanish or consolidate their knowledge.
The activities were very fun and interactive. A great way to speak Spanish and learn vocabulary. Overall a great week with a great bunch of people. The restaurant options were good.
Paula is a vibrant and gifted teacher who taught us a lot about Spanish culture and art with great enthusiasm. The group gelled very well and I enjoyed the classes very much. It was all made even better by taking place in such a lovely town.
