About Miguel


Bio

¡Hola soy Miguel! I’m originally from Barcelona where I grew up speaking Spanish and Catalan. I learned Italian in college then English when I later lived in London. I know what it’s like to learn a new language as an adult, and I remember what helped along the way! I graduated from the University of Barcelona with a degree in Italian Philology which involved the study of language and its origins. I was also awarded the European Union Scholarship Erasmus at the Università degli Studi di...

¡Hola soy Miguel! I’m originally from Barcelona where I grew up speaking Spanish and Catalan. I learned Italian in college then English when I later lived in London. I know what it’s like to learn a new language as an adult, and I remember what helped along the way! I graduated from the University of Barcelona with a degree in Italian Philology which involved the study of language and its origins. I was also awarded the European Union Scholarship Erasmus at the Università degli Studi di Milano where I learned Italian. Life eventually to took me to London where I learned English and later to New York City where I started teaching Spanish. Life had come full circle!

One thing I’ve learned in over 15 years of teaching in groups and one-on-one is that every student approaches the process differently. I customize each program according to the students’ needs and style. For example, I have taught businesses better ways to communicate to their Spanish-speaking staff, first generation Americans who want to speak with their grandparents, fluent speakers who want to read, write and maintain practice, and even Hollywood actors trying to pass as native speakers for TV and film!

My classes are personable and fun with a focus on speaking from the first day. Having learned English and Italian later in life prepared me for being self-conscious, so I know what it’s like, and we throw that worry out the door! I will make you comfortable speaking and guarantee that we’ll have a lot of fun while doing it. It’s all about communicating your thoughts in a new way. You’ll be mastering basic conversation in no time. It opens up a whole new world.
