Hello! My name is Jennifer Niño and I started my education with a Bachelor’s degree in Translation and Interpreting (Spanish, English and German). I have a Master’s degree in Romance Studies: Cultural Contacts and Communication (Spanish and Italian). I am an active researcher and creator with more than 14 years of experience in teaching Spanish as a foreign language. I have worked as a teacher of ELE and DAF in various contexts in Germany: teenagers, university students and adults. I have collaborated with different projects in the ELE world related to the creation of materials, digital tools and Cognitive Linguistics.
I am an active blogger; I create materials for teaching and learning Spanish (profe-de-espanol.de) and German (das-sprachenlabor.de). As a trainer, I have focused on the use of digital tools, e-learning and the creation of visual and interactive materials. I have collaborated with different publishers in the ELE world, ELE International, among others. I am currently working at the University of Applied Sciences in Cologne, Germany, and I have an online teaching project for Spanish and German.
If you give me the choice between buying books and going to buy new pants, I’m sorry, but I’ll definitely choose books. As a child I didn’t have many and that’s why they are now my elixir. They have taught me to be self-taught. My son Emilio has given me the desire to illustrate children’s books, so I go around from time to time, drawing and writing about magical beings or animals that give life lessons.
