Get to Know Me!
If you want to learn Spanish, your are on the right place! I am Natalia Salguero. I am a qualified and experienced Spanish teacher from Barcelona.
I have always loved travelling and meeting people from different countries and cultures. I am also interested in languages – both in language learning but also in the language acquisition process itself.
I believe there is a connection between the language we speak and the way we see and perceive the world. So the more languages you speak, the more different interpretations of the world you get! Language learning actually affects your brain – and I mean in a positive way! Mastering a foreign language gives you brain cognitive benefits, it is like exercising your brain!
I am currently in the process of learning Mandinka myself – a bit of a challenge as it is totally different from Spanish! what a brain work out!
But not too worry, I also have the time to help you with your Spanish. I want you to speak Español!
I have been there
There I was, 18 years old, enrolling in my English Studies BA at the UAB (Universidad Autónoma de Barcelona).
I thought it will be a piece of cake, I was good with languages, but this was no joke.
All the lectures were given in English, notes had to be taken in English, if you had something to say, you had to speak English, …it actually made sense but I was not expecting it for some reason.
My English level was not great, I studied a lot of grammar in High School but I could not really speak or understand the tutors, so I panicked a little bit. “what was I thinking? I don’t get it! How am I going to take notes even?”. I decided to do something about it and I went to London to improve my English- and have some fun in the process.
I came back from London a year, and a bit later with a good English level that allowed me to finish my degree, and look at me now! I am fluent and I can communicate effectively! I can even help Spanish speakers with their English.
You may wonder, “ok so, are you telling me I need to move to Spain for a while?”.
You could (and if you really want to you should), but there is no need to. There is another very effective way to learn Spanish. Why don’t you try my customized private online lessons? Save yourself the hassle!
