I’m Argentine, body, and soul. I grew up in Quilmes, a neighborhood in the Buenos Aires area. I was always into languages. After I graduated from high school, I studied English Translation, and my first jobs were as an English teacher. I’m an English literary fan, and if you’d known me as a child, you would have probably found me immersed in a Harry Potter book or in a Jane Austen’s novel. I also dug a lot of music in English too.
Then, something amazing happened. I started to travel. A lot. I spent 4 years of my life traveling across South America and Europe. And, weirdly enough, I started to love my country even more than before (and I didn’t know that was possible!). I encountered a lot of people from around the world who were really into Argentina and its culture, and I started to appreciate my origins in a brand new light.
That’s when I started to teach Spanish to foreigners. And not any kind of Spanish – my Spanish, the Spanish from my homeland, and it’s an incredibly rich culture. I’ve been doing this for almost 10 years now and I can’t be happier. I found a powerful vocation of connecting people to my country through teaching Spanish, the same way I feel connected to it wherever I go, a feeling that intensifies every time I come back home from a trip abroad.
So, now, I invite you to this amazing journey. I would be extremely glad to walk you through what it means to talk and feel like an Argentine!
