He enjoys reading personal construction and always tries to keep up to date with the latest developments in the professional field.
``I'm a bit of a geek and I love scientific advances, even though these are sometimes beyond my comprehension. Knowledge in general is my passion.
I consider myself ambitious and in the future I would love to create my own projects and manage my own team. Visiting new countries is the cure for intolerance and ignorance``.
``I do my administrative work from the reception desk and I really like being able to interact with the students and help them with whatever they need``.
She enjoys reading, listening to music, dancing, walking and enjoying every moment of the day with the best of her smiles.
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? ``
Her long experience as a teacher has allowed her to know different educational, academic and cultural environments and all of this has made her see that the development of a lifetime in the field of teaching Spanish is, without a doubt, her vocation.
``I discovered this vocation many years ago, when I left for France as a language assistant, after graduating in French philology. That's where my interest in teaching Spanish was aroused, and since then my passion has been teaching Spanish to foreigners, and where better than in Madrid, in the Puerta del Sol? Come and meet us, we are going to surprise you``.
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!``
The Spanish language has always been her favourite subject, from an early age. She has given private classes to Spanish kids on weekends while studying at ESCUNI, not only of language studies, also of all subjects. But it was the fact of giving classes to foreign children with school failure due to lack of knowledge of the language that reaffirmed her vocation: to be communicator.
She has many hobbies: she likes travelling and getting to know other cultures, reading (poetry, philosophy, history...), going to the cinema and theatre, swimming, dancing, wine tasting, national and international gastronomy, flamenco and a large etcetera.
``I believe that teaching Spanish to foreigners is a continuous exchange of cultural experiences, very enriching for everyone``.
“I have been working for many years in the world of strategic consulting, helping companies in the integral management, giving much importance to training at any level, from top management to basic personnel and, in general, I advised on all matters related to business operations.”
Parallel to the world of consulting, he has been working in different schools of business as an Academic Coordinator, an Admissions Coordinator and as the Head of Creation of New Programs.
“I am passionate about the world of education, dealing with students and helping them when they ask me. Therefore, in the Business Management and International Relations Course we work together to get to know the business world from different points of view, from the point of view of an entrepreneur and from the point of view of a person who works in a company. As it is a very practical course, students see real or fictitious situations that occur in companies on a daily basis, and together we look for the most appropriate solution to the problem at hand.”
He loves music, country bikes-especially if they are old, and spending time with his family and friends.
He's only 25 years old and he speaks Tamazight, Arabic, English, French and Algerian sign language in addition to Spanish that he studied at NLCollege :
`` Thanks to NLCollege, what an amazing experience i have at the school, and i am still enjoying every second of it helping students to come to Spain and chase their dreams guiding them in their new life experience that will pave them the way for their successful development, and like i am always saying, if i am not making someone else's life better then i am wasting my time ``.
One of his greatest passion is making change in the world to make it a better place for everyone, helping people with his wisdom, knowledge and experience is what makes him satisfied.
`` The world can't change by itself only if each one of us makes himself a better person for all the world ``.
He's in love with humanity and his heart is big and the doors are always open, he loves philosophy, biology, origins sciences, linguistics and getting to know new cultures from all around the world.
