OUR SPANISH TEACHERS
In Paraninfo Academy we have assembled a permanent team of trained native Spanish teachers, who are great professionals in teaching Spanish to foreigners.
In Paraninfo, our teachers are the key to a student having a successful and comfortable experience while learning Spanish in Madrid. Our teachers are highly qualified with many years of experience and understand the needs and interests of adults, teenagers, and children. They encourage students to actively participate in the learning process and help them to reach their full potential.
Our teachers have extensive national and international experience, they are creators of ELE teaching materials, and are constantly participating in training seminars and courses. They are all DELE examiners.
Our teachers love teaching Spanish, they love their job, their school, and being with their students but above all … they are our quality assurance which attests to the 45 years of experience teaching Spanish to more than 10,000 students.
OUR TEACHING PHILOSOPHY
Who better to tell you our philosophy than our teachers:
Spanish students often say that Spaniards speak very quickly. They also tell us that they have difficulties differentiating between SER and ESTAR, between POR and PARA, between the Indicative and the Subjunctive, between LE and SE, and between the Pretérito Perfecto and the Imperfecto.
It is true that for people who speak Latin languages, Spanish is easier to learn. But the truth is that we know many students from all backgrounds who have reached very high levels of Spanish: Chinese, Arabs, Russians, Japanese, among others…
We want to help you to delve into the Spanish language in a gradual and orderly manner. Without forgetting three very important things:
- The first, that your interest and curiosity are the best resources you have to learn a new language.
- The second, that nothing is learned without constancy.
- And third, that learning a language is much more than sitting in front of a book and doing exercises.
Languages are learned by reading, telling stories, listening, talking, asking, doing interesting things, walking with others, eating in groups … Only those who have something to say can learn to express themselves and we will create opportunities for you to express yourself in Spanish and learn more every day.
It does not matter if you are already able to read a newspaper article or if you can only say “hello”. Whatever your level might be, we will receive it with all the respect and attention it deserves. Our most valuable learning tool is your desire to learn.
