Teaching Approach:

What is my bases of Language learning? My bases of Languages learning focuses in the widely tested thesis that the Language are learned by context. Based on it, the centre of learning becomes the student and his interests. The Spanish Language becomes the vehicle of expressing these interests, so learning it becomes easy and fun, as when we were toddlers and learned our mother tongue. Grammar and writing is something that my students learn after this natural process.

What kind of tools do I use to put it in practice? I am a fan of the new technologies. I believe that its implementation is really great for the learning of children and adults. I think it’s true in all the subjects, but specially in Language studies. So the used of videos, tablets, apps, audios etc. in my classes are very common. I addition the young people love it, so it is double motivation for him.
