About Carla

My motto is "only practice improves our ability to communicate effectively in our second language".

My goal is to empower people's skills in spoken and written communication in both Spanish and Japanese.
I taught Spanish for 10 year to Japanese students in Japan. I am also certified to teach Japanese (basic and intermediate level). I hold a Phd in social science and work at the Spanish Department in Kyoto University of Foreign Studies for 3 years. I also learn Japanese and obtain JLPT 3.

1. Concerning my qualifications for Spanish classes
I attended teacher training at Cervantes Institute and I have taught Spanish for about 10 years. I teach different levels of Spanish, from basic to advance. I have experience teaching adults but I could also teach college students and prepare students to take DELE test.

2. Concerning my qualifications for Japanese classes
I have lived in Japan for about 8 years and I passed the language test JPLT 3. Not only attended classes at University level but also work in a Japanese research group as part of a team where I was the only non-Japanese. On my spare time, I was an invited lecture in a language school and taught Spanish to Japanese university students. My target students are mainly basic to intermediate students and students preparing to take N4 or N5, and particularly those aiming to move to Japan for work or study.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.
I look forward to helping you improving your language skills.
