Über Mich

¡Hola!

My name is Álvaro. I'm 31 years old and I'm your first-class Spanish coach.

I would define myself as a natural language geek. I studied a degree in Translation and Interpreting for Spanish, English, and German. I'm also a Master's in Language Teaching.

Furthermore, I am a specilist in phonetics (teaching you how to speak in a comfortable way and adopt a natural Spanish accent) and learning techniques with a broad understanding of linguistics and experience in learning over 15 languages at different levels.

Looking for a SPANISH teacher? Then you're in luck!

I have ten years of professional experience in translating (at Nintendo and Amazon) and teaching (through online sites as well as in person at Sagrada Familia El Pilar school).

My lessons are UNLIKE anything you've ever seen.

I use conversation as a way of enhancing fluency (any topic will suit our needs), but there's much more to it:
- I make tough grammar look simple;
- I serve content to you in digital formats;
- I teach you just the vocabulary you need;
- I teach you about mentality and learning;
- I shake up your pronunciation and accent;
- I prepare an efficient learning plan just for you;
- I suggest sources, material, YT channels, TV programs, etc.
- and more.

I cannot thank you enough if you really got this far. And because actions matter more than words, I'm giving you a 10%-off coupon: enter "menudaganga" when purchasing a lesson or pack.

Are you ready to step up your game?

Message me and fasten your seatbelt. :)
