Academic

Fernando

Academic Coordinator and Spanish Teacher

Fernando is from Madrid and one of his greatest passions are languages: he speaks French, Portuguese, Italian, Greek, and English. It was in his linguistic-cultural immersion courses in these countries that he discovered his teaching vocation and decided to become an ELE teacher. In addition to his master's degree in teaching Spanish as a second language, he continues to study at the Cervantes Institute (e.g. to use their AVE Global virtual materials), and at the university, through congresses. By officially certifying the languages he speaks he also obtained a qualification to prepare students for the official Spanish exams SIELE and DELE.

Another of his passions is art and culture in general. In his spare time he likes to swim, paint, play the violin, travel, go out with his friends, cultural activities of all kinds, read, enjoy the city, nature and the sea, and get to know other languages and their cultures.

``Madrid is a very diverse city, there are many people with whom to practice Spanish, and the inhabitants are very welcoming, they interact easily. We have great weather, a rich gastronomy, a broad cultural offer, large urban parks, and the nature and mountains close. The nightlife here is incredible, you can go out every day! What more reasons do you need to come? ``

Natalia

Spanish Teacher

Natalia is a pedagogue specialized in social and educational topics, focused on the application of different didactic methods oriented at the students’ needs.
It has always been her vocation to become a teacher, so she has been giving classes for a long time. During her years at the university she had the opportunity to try her luck in different schools but she found her true place when finishing her training in her first ELE group. That happened more than 10 years ago and every day she enjoys her dream and her passion in class with her students.
She has carried out her profession in various ways: online, private, in large groups and for all levels. She loves to interact with students and help make them have a great time here. She also enjoys reading and walking around her hometown, Madrid. Traveling is one of her great passions as well.

``There is no better place to learn Spanish than the center of Madrid. Come and enjoy its amazing people and culture. I will help you discover a wonderful language and an even more wonderful city, where you will meet interesting new people and have the time of your life!``

Javier

Spanish Teacher

After graduating in Philosophy at the University of Madrid and obtaining an ELE teaching certificate at the Cervantes Institute, he has spent years teaching Spanish in different European countries: as a private teacher in Siena (Italy) and Cork (Ireland) and at public schools in Vienna (Austria).
Traveling, closely experiencing the cultures of other countries, and learning their languages has always been a source of inspiration for him, both personally and when it comes to understanding the learning and teaching of languages.
“If reading, history and art are my favorite hobbies, it is no less a good conversation about the day to day, about life, about us. Now back in Madrid, I'm waiting for you here, at NLC, to share with you my enthusiasm and everything I've learned in this time. And of course also to learn from you!``

Rubén

Spanish Teacher

Rubén has a degree in Business Administration and Management but he discovered a new passion and began his adventure as a Spanish teacher. He started with online classes, as a hobby, and liked it so much that he took the ELE certificate for teaching at International House. Since then he has not stopped teaching and is wondering why he didn’t do this before. His passion for teaching is reflected in each of his classes.
Rubén loves to travel and getting to know other cultures, even more when it is combined with teaching. He volunteered as a teacher in Thailand. Reading is one of his main hobbies and his topics of interest are history, current affairs, and new methods of teaching.
“Each student is a new experience, a new challenge and a new hope, to accompany them in their progress and introduce them to our culture.”
