I am from Montevideo, Uruguay.
My passion for teaching my native language began in 2004 when I took a one-year long course in “Teaching Spanish to Speakers of Other Languages” in Uruguay. I loved the subject so much that I decided to specialise by studing a 4-year long degree at the University of Montevideo: “Spanish Teaching for secondary school level“. When I finished my degree I received a grant from the Spanish Government to take a Masters Degree in the Spanish Language at the University of La Coruña, Spain, in 2009, and an MA in Linguistics at the University of Santiago de Compostela, Spain, in 2010.
Since then, I have been an MFL Spanish teacher in Spain, Uruguay and Poland. I have also participated as a speaker in several congresses organised by the Spanish Linguistic Society and I have written contributions for the Latinoamerican University of Social Studies.
