Javier's Fun Facts
Hello, my name is Javier and I am a native speaker of Spanish from Cancún, México. I currently live in Japan. I have a degree from the Universidad Autónoma de Querétaro with two specialties: Latin American literature and teaching Spanish to foreigners.
I have been teaching Spanish since 2010, mainly to adolescents and adults. I specialize in test preparation (DELE), Spanish for tourism, Spanish for business, Spanish for teachers and Spanish for priests.
I love reading, finding new music and films, and long distance biking. I also enjoy trying new bread recipes and just spoiling his cat. I hope you will contact me for a trial lesson!

I have evolved slowly into introducing more structured to non-structured practice sequences in the last years. I have a certain love for lecturing on cultural and historical topics. I try to find a topic or topics that the student could find relatable and/or interesting, so they are more comfortable speaking out. Speaking, trying and failing is the only way to really learn a new language, as I am remembering myself while trying to learn Japanese.
