¡Hello! My name is Erika Montoya, I am Peruvian and I live in the northern Italy, my native language is Spanish and I am a certified ELE Teacher (Español como Lengua Extranjera), certification that I obtained in Barcelona, Spain. I’ve specialized on online lessons, but I also teach to groups and individuals in person. I use the communicative method, so it focuses on communication, but without neglecting grammar. What is of concern to me is to listen to my students or future students in order to know their needs, therefore, I am able to adapt my lessons to what they expect from a Spanish course; to practice it or to prepare for specific exams (DELE, CELU, etc.).
I also speak English and Italian, but my lessons are almost entirely in Spanish. It is important for that you understand that lessons online are quite the same as the ones in person: we are going to use video, text books, audios, we speak through Internet and exercise during the lesson and, if you’d like, I even give you some homework, so you can reinforce what you’ve learned during the lesson, I will correct it and examine it with you, so we can discuss together subject that you believe needs further study.
Look forward to teaching you! ¡Hasta pronto!
