Jabier's Fun Facts
Hello, my name is Jabier and I am from Venezuela, although I currently live in Chile. I have a degree in modern languages from the Universidad de los Andes in Venezuela and a master’s in international business from the Instituto Europeo de Posgrado. I have taught Spanish since 2007 in Venezuela, Trinidad and Tobago, Germany, Colombia and Ecuador, mainly to adults.
I teach professional Spanish, Spanish for tourism, Spanish for business, medical Spanish and Spanish for teachers.
I love to travel, and I enjoy reading, writing, cooking, watching movies, and sports. I speak five languages, so I am very familiar with the challenges of learning a new one. Let me help you learn Spanish! I will be happy to give you a trial class.

My teaching approach is based on the point of view that languages are not merely signs and phonetics symbols scrambled together in particular orders under certain rules to facilitate communication. Languages enclosed the full content of a culture, countries and regions. Therefore they cannot be marginalized to simple syllabus and scheduled lessons. Should anyone desire to learn and eventually master a language, it is necessary to have a comprehensive approach where each aspect is tackled in the right way. Nevertheless, such approach loses its effectiveness when it is not boosted by the constant work of the student under a knowable guidance. That is why my philosophy for learning a language goes beyond only lessons and handouts; I like to encourage the student to dive directly into the language and turn normal lessons in truly learning experiences.
