My name is Nuria Ortega Riba and I am a Spanish teacher. I am a graduate in Hispanic Studies: Language and Literature from the University of Almería (Spain) and a postgraduate in Teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language: Language, Culture and Methodology from the University of Granada (Spain).
Throughout my entire academic experience, I have worked in an international environment with students from different backgrounds and ages, which has helped me teach children, as well as adults interested in learning Spanish in their free time or because a good command of a second language was compulsory for their jobs. In my former role as a teacher in several language schools and, most importantly, in the Center of Modern Languages of the University of Granada, I taught each level of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages: from A1 to C2.
In my professional practice, I use a communicative approach when teaching, since my students usually want to learn how to use Spanish in everyday life situations, which explains why my lessons are so dynamic and enjoyable. However, since there is no perfect method to teach or to learn a language, I provide a personalized methodology and syllabus depending on my students’ needs and skills, so that I can efficiently develop their abilities in the language journey. Having said that, single online lessons are another option within the services I provide.
Other than that, as much as I love my mother tongue, I am passionate about literature and culture. I like to introduce art, cinema, creative writing, to name but a few, in my lessons. Movies, series, books and other audiovisual additional sources are perfect for language improvement. We will use textbooks and printed files, indeed, as well as online materials: webs, magazines, social media...
