Über Mich

Bonjour! :)

My name is Laura, I am 25 years old and am currently living in Cali, Colombia. French mother and British father, I grew up in Switzerland and attended bilingual schools and universities. I have been teaching children and adults, in-person and online, for several years. I have lived and worked in several countries including Colombia, Spain, Hong Kong, and New Caledonia.
French and English are both my native languages, and I speak Spanish fluently (advanced). Therefore, I will be able to help you whichever one is your mother tongue. TOEFL and DELE certified, I have acquired the skills necessary to assist you, whatever your goal is: a new work opportunity, travel plans, discovering a new culture, preparing for an exam, practice, or simple curiosity! I am able to teach children, teenagers, and adults.
Language-enthusiast, I also speak Portuguese, Italian, and German at intermediate levels, and would love to welcome students from all over!
In my classes, after having established your goal and objectives, I use support materials such as videos, articles, current news, exercises, songs, activities, etc, depending on your level and topics of interest. Together, we will work on your listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills, including pronunciation, expressing yourself on various topics, grammar, vocabulary, from beginner to upper-intermediate levels.
Hospitality management graduate, my particular areas of interest include hospitality, tourism, culture, languages, travel, sport, dance, food, music, and many more.
I look forward to learning more about your motivation for learning more about my language and culture!:)
