Native spanish teacher
Interaction and fun
This is me, the teacher
Hello there, this is Gaby. I am the one who is behind all this. Nice to meet you! I am a native Spanish teacher who was actually born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and currently lives in Valencia, Spain —after six years of travelling around the world. I know how it feels to be learning a foreign language: I learnt English myself and it really opened up a wide portion of the world to me, specially while travelling. That is why I can help you take your basic Spanish knowledge to the next level... I've been there! :)
About life, langagues, learning, people, travelling...
I care about what I do and I like to do it right.
I've been teaching languages for years.
