Gonzalo

Co-founder of Spanishclasseslive and super teacher at the Academy.

Hello! My name is Gonzalo and I am from Granada. I lived there for 24 years, grew up and studied English as a Foreign Language pedagogy. Also trained as an ELE teacher and as a DELE examiner at all levels. For almost 8 years I have been living in Warsaw, the capital of Poland, where I have worked as a Spanish teacher with children and teenagers, in private schools and at the Instituto Cervantes in Warsaw.

My motto is “there is no better way to learn than having fun” 🙂

Love soccer, both watching and playing it, learning languages and getting to know new cultures, cooking, dancing, singing flamenco and acting.

Fran

Co-founder of Spanishclasseslive and super teacher at the Academy.

Hello! I’m Fran and I’m from Elche, a city very close to Alicante. In 2015, just when I finished my degree in History at the University of Alicante, I moved to Poland to do pedagogical studies and several training courses for ELE teachers of expert level organized by the Instituto Cervantes and also to achieve the DELE examiner certificates for all levels.

I have worked as a Spanish teacher in a Primary and Secondary School in Warsaw (Poland) and at Cervantes Institute in the same city.

I am a soccer fan and a History lover. I love spending time in the with my friends and family, but most of all teaching Spanish while having fun.

Rafael

Cognitive grammar specialist teacher trainer

Hi! I’m Rafa, and although I’m from Úbeda, the land of olive oil, I’ve been living in Granada, the land of my dreams, since I started as an ELE teacher back in 2000 in CastiLa, a wonderful school accredited by the Cervantes Institute in front of the Alhambra. Now I am the academic director and responsible for teacher training. Although I’m not much for labels, some teachers and students call me: “the magician of grammar” and that represents very well my great passion: Cognitive grammar and its application to our classes to make our lives easier every day.

I tell them that it is not magic, it is cognitive grammar.

My 5 year old daughter Lucía, her mummy, a good book, writing, cinema, playing football and spending time in good company fill my life with moments to smile every day.

Cinthia

Academy Superteacher.

Hello! My name is Cinthia and I am from Gran Canaria. In 2018 I graduated in Spanish Language and Hispanic Literatures in Gran Canaria and in 2019 I finished my Master’s Degree in Teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language in Madrid.

After my Erasmus experience in 2015 in Poland, I discovered the world of teaching your own language to foreigners and how interesting this could be. Working as a teaching assistant at the Eötvös Loránd University in Budapest determined my future, until now. Since then, I have trained as a DELE examiner and I have been doing what I love: teaching Spanish to foreigners. I am currently living in Madrid, where I am working on my doctoral thesis on Cuban poetry.

I am fascinated by literature and art. In my free time I write poetry and also paint pictures. I also like to cook for my family and friends.

Elena

Academy Superteacher.

Hello! My name is Elena and I’m from Granada. I studied History of Art in my city and then I went to England to improve my English and to work. When I came back, I did a Master’s degree in Education at the University of Cadiz and trained as a Spanish teacher.


I have experience at all levels and I am currently completing the DELE examiner courses at the Instituto Cervantes. In addition, I have the official tourist guide accreditation in three languages: Spanish, English and Italian.


I love sharing my language and culture, photography, art, learning continuously, spending time with family and friends, and meeting people from different countries.
