I have had the opportunity to teach a wide range of Spanish, Culture and Literature courses using different techniques, and emphasizing communicative proficiency and cultural awareness. My teaching style is based on real life materials: songs, movies, television shows, poems, visual aids and games. I promote student participation. in all possible ways: presentations, debates, group work, contests, etc. Grammar and writing also have an important role in my classes.
