After having spent a few years teaching Spanish in the San Francisco bay area, don Quijote gave me the opportunity to teach back in my native country. Now I spend every day enjoying teaching people who come to Spain from all over the world – each person with their own unique culture and experiences, but all with the common desire to learn my language. Although I am the professor, in reality it´s the students who teach me through their enthusiasm and passion for learning. Come and visit us, I would be delighted to keep learning from all of you.
