Lesson Details

Spanish

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
Hi! My name is Kate and I have been teaching Spanish for more than 4 years, both in private schools and online. I have a DELE certificate (Diploma of Spanish as a Foreign Language), as well as a «Competent Language Instructor» certificate that I got in a well known language school in Kiev, where I worked after I completed a course dedicated to Spanish teaching methodology. In addition, I have two years of experience as a translator in different projects and one year in a Spanish company in Kiev.

I'm 28 and I'm from Ukraine so my native languages are Ukrainian and Russian, but I started learning Spanish when I was nine years old, so I have been learning it for almost 20 years. I have studied very intensively for the past 7 years and I'm still looking for new topics from which I can learn. I'm in permanent contact with native speakers from Spain and various Latin American countries so I can easily explain to you the differences between distinct varieties of language.

I have traveled to Spain several times, and I have also worked in Equatorial Guinea, which is a Spanish speaking country in Africa. I currently live in the USA. I use Spanish every day and I continue to do my favorite job of all: sharing my knowledge of Spanish with any and all interested people.


¡Hola! Me llamo Kate y desde hace más de 4 años enseño español, tanto online como en escuelas presenciales privadas. Tengo los certificados DELE (Diploma de Español como Lengua Extranjera) y «Competent Language Instructor», este último lo obtuve en una reconocida academia de idiomas de Kiev en la que trabajé, tras completar el curso de metodología de la enseñanza de español. También tengo 2 años de experiencia como traductora en diferentes proyectos y un año en una compañía española en Kiev.


Tengo 28 años y soy de Ucrania, por tanto, mis idiomas nativos son el ucraniano y el ruso pero empecé a aprender español cuando tenía 9 años. Llevo casi 20 años aprendiendo el idioma, de forma intensiva desde hace 7 y cada día intento aprender cosas nuevas. En mi afán por aprender, estoy en contacto constante con diferentes personas de España y Latinoamérica, por eso soy capaz de explicarte las diferencias entre las distintas variedades del idioma.


He estado varias veces en España y, durante un tiempo, trabajé en Guinea Ecuatorial (un país hispanohablante en Africa). Actualmente vivo en Estados Unidos, lo cual no impide que use el español cada día y que siga haciendo mi trabajo favorito: compartir mis conocimientos de español con cada persona interesada en aprender.
