¡Hola! My name is Yaiza and I am from Madrid.
I have a degree in Modern Languages and Literature from the Universidad Complutense de Madrid and after my undergraduate I moved to France where I studied a Masters Degree in Translation at the Université d’Angers.
Working as a Teaching Assistant in a Lycée made me realise that I wanted to become a Spanish Teacher, so I began a Doctorate in Linguistics Applied to the Teaching of Foreign Languages to further my knowledge of the subject.
I have been teaching Spanish at Angers at various institutions including the town hall, the business school ESSCA and the University. I am also an official DELE examiner (awarded by the Cervantes Institute, Palermo) for A1, B1, B2 levels and I have worked as a examiner for the Cervantes Institute in France examining B1 and B2 exams.
In short I am an enthusiastic teacher who loves to share her passion for the Spanish language and culture and I am looking forward to inspiring this Spanish spirit in class and as De Waal said: “with languages you are at home everywhere” so I am looking forward to seeing you in my class and making you feel at home.
