Curso de Inglés

Marilou es una profesora con amplia experiencia y preparación. Trabajadora incansable, inasequible al desaliento y con unos excelentes principios.

Ha impartido clases en tres continentes, varios países de distintas culturas, y habla cuatro idiomas. En Paraninfo se encarga de los cursos de inglés, tanto básicos como avanzados, por ejemplo: Preparación para exámenes de Cambridge, English Business, TOEFL y TOEIC.

Marilou, además, es una persona excelente: simpática, comunicativa y divertida. Es una de esas personas que se diría que tienen un don especial para enseñar. Sus clases son divertidas, amenas y muy productivas.

Su abuelo, de origen español, le decía de pequeña: "Marilou, aprende español, que un día te ha de servir en España". Ella no le hizo mucho caso. Quien le iba a decir que, después de vivir y enseñar en tantos lugares del planeta, vendría a la tierra de sus antepasados. Es muy querida, valorada y apreciada por sus alumnos: tanto por la excepcional calidad de sus clases como por su gran valía como persona.
