My Students

What I like the most about my students is their innate curiosity and their desire to explore and conquer the world.

They are curious and fun, but Persistent is the trait I admire the most, because I have seen their struggle when they are trying to learn Spanish, but they don’t give up.

They always keep trying.

My classroom is a place full of smart people who respect cultural differences and have a huge desire to travel around the world, because they want to understand and learn more about this huge community called world.

My Project

My kids want to learn Spanish as a foreign language. They are very interested and motivated, but the English-Spanish dictionaries are torn apart and many pages are missing.

This resource is very important in this class, because it will allow my students to learn independently and my aim as a teacher is to help them to become autonomous and self-sufficient learners.

This tool plays an important role in the process of learning a foreign language, because they will help them to learn new vocabulary, find out other grammatical information about a word, practice pronunciation, check spelling of words and the students improve their own language and learn and variety of words in both languages.
