My name is Adriana Martinez, “Adri” for my students. I’m a native Spanish language teacher, I live in Bogota, Colombia, one of the Latin America countries. At present, I work freelance as a teacher of Spanish as a foreign language on the internet.
I have been teaching Spanish for over 14 years. I started teaching before graduating from the university by developing didactic materials and after my professional degree; I started to teach native Spanish for native speakers. First with the role of tutor of Spanish for children and then that of teacher of Spanish, writing and spelling both in primary and secondary schools as in some universities of Bogotá-Colombia, with the latter emphasizing the teaching of writing, oral expression and the techniques of argumentation used to give and defend one’s own opinion.
In 2012, I inducted in virtual teaching at an Academy that teaches Spanish via internet to Koreans in Seoul, South Korea and I worked until December of last year (2016). I was teaching Spanish in intermediate (B1-B2) and advanced levels ( C1, C2) and sometimes in A2 (basic). Therefore, I have extensive experience in the preparation of international exams (DELE, FLEX, OPIC) as well as different methodologies for the classes of conversation, writing, grammar and immersion in Latin American culture.
