|It has been proven that the act of learning another language is valuable in many ways. In this hemisphere Spanish is the second language. And the process that a brain goes through to expand and learn another language increases one's ability to learn and score higher on SAT/Achievement testing.
I have lived in South America for 20 years. In fact, I spent my first 20 years living in Cuba, Colombia and Venezuela. I also spent a semester abroad during my junior year of college in Madrid, Spain. Also I have traveled many times to countries in Europe, visiting Spain (numerous times), Italy, France, England, Germany, Czech Republic, Austria and Bulgaria and a side trip to Morocco, Africa.
I believe that these experiences add to my ability to teach the language with enthusiasm.
