Hello, my name is Begonia and I am a native speaker of Spanish from Madrid, Spain. I am a certified ELE teacher and have degrees in Philology from the Universidad Complutense in Madrid and journalism from the Universidad de Navarra. I have lived in several countries, including the US and UK, and have taught Spanish since 2015 to students of all levels and ages.
I specialize in professional Spanish, Spanish for tourism and Spanish for business, as well as test preparation for the DELE or ECELE.
