About the Founder
I had taken several Spanish classes in high school. However, I was never confident with my speaking skills until I actually began focusing on conversing in the language, one-on-one, in an informal setting (at my dining room table) with a friend via internet. I had tried Rosetta Stone and several similar language programs, but found that there is no program that can compare to speaking with a real person. Instead of just focusing on grammar, the main focus was on actually learning how to speak the natural way, the way that a baby learns language. It was then that I decided that I wanted to share the gift of language learning with others.
I have always had a love for language, so it was no surprise to my family and friends that after graduating from college, I made the decision to work abroad and immerse myself in the Spanish culture and language. After college, I spent the next couple of years in Spain teaching English as a second language (ESL) to at-risk youth at Ortega y Rubio Middle/High school and Santo Domingo y San Miguel Elementary School in the small town of Mula, Spain, and traveling to 14 countries on a shoestring budget. I want to share the gift of language learning and global citizenship with others. I feel that it is very important for everyone, especially at-risk youth, to learn different languages and about cultures other than their own, because it will enhance their education and open doors of opportunity, just as it did for me.
