Axia College / Univ of Phoenix (Business Management)
Growing up in Colombia, South America, gave me the opportunity to learn a type of Spanish which is considered by many as one of the best. One of the alumni of the school I attended, outside the city of Bogota, won the Nobel Prize of Literature for his book “One Hundred Years of Solitude.” The school is keen in promoting Linguistics, written and verbal communication; Spanish was of exceptional prominence. I was fortunate to enjoy the benefits of this type of learning and nurture my love for the Spanish language. I was exposed to, and became familiar with the ways it is spoken in different Latin-American countries, as well as in Spain, where I lived for two years.
For about six years I worked as a Business, Legal and Medical interpreter. This discipline gave me a practical view of the importance of identifying and maintaining the spirit of the language when translating or interpreting from one language to another. This way, and though my travels to other countries around the world, (56 countries) I also became aware of the importance of comprehending the psychology of the language as part of the language-learning-process.
I would like to share these experiences with my students, and hopefully stimulate their desire to experience how gratifying it is to communicate in other languages and see a totally new view of our world.
If you are committed to reach a level of proficiency in fundamental Spanish language skills, I can guide you to achieve your objective. The process will be both, entertaining and practical, and intended to stimulate quick learning of the grammar and vocabulary in context.
If you are a student and your goal is to achieve good grades, catch up, or stay ahead of the class, I’ll help you succeed and demonstrate your ability to “ace” your tests. - Classes will be engaging and fun!
