Hello, my name is Adrian L. and I'm 27 years old and currently living in Spain. I am a native Spanish speaker and teach Spanish. I have been an online Spanish teacher with Verbalplanet.com since April 2019. I can speak the following languages fluently: Spanish, English. I am currently offering a free initial trial lesson for new students.

About me

Hello, I am Adrián, an English Studies B.A from Madrid, the capital of Spain.

I am 26 years old and I would like to teach Castilian Spanish to English-speaking people. Castilian Spanish differs from Mexican/South American English in so much more than accent. Word choice, pronunciation, mannerisms, diction and fluency are a whole different matter. European Spanish is not widely popular today, but the language of El Quijote can be funny and useful in both personal and business settings.

Qualifications & Experience

I studied in the UNED, the biggest Spanish University as of now. I minored in Translation and got a Honor Mention (9.8 out of 10, in the Spanish system) in "Inglés Instrumental",

a subject that tracked the degree of perfection in terms of grammar, vocabulary and oral understanding.

I have been working as a freelance teacher for the Academia Unamuno, in Madrid, for two years now. I mainly teach English to young Spaniards, but I sometimes also teach Spanish to English-speaking foreigners.

Teaching Approach

AS A CASTILIAN SPANISH TEACHER, ENGLISH IS NOT ALLOWED (you can speak it, though).

I will try MY BEST to NOT SPEAK a single word of English during the whole lesson. You can speak English all you want, but I will focus on immersion and fluency as opposed to memorization or vocabulary. My method is simple: try to THINK and SPEAK in Spanish for an hour a day. Does that sound difficult to you? It is not.

Just had my first lesson with Adrian. As an adult learner I found his relaxed teaching methods superb. He tends to speak only in Spanish which I thought was excellent. ( my level is very basic, so please don't let that put you off) I've tried a few Spanish teachers but in my opinion this guy is outstanding....he really knows how to connect with you and you instantly feel confident enough to try and converse in Spanish....even if you only know a few words, he gives you the confidence to want to try. If you try him, believe me....he will inspire you and not disappoint you.
