¡Hola! My name is Cecilia and I am a native speaker of Spanish from Mexico City, Mexico. Currently, I live and work in Moscow, Russia. A training course for teachers of Spanish as a Foreign Language by International House Mexico started my adventure in this path of life. I have an undergraduate degree in communication from the National Autonomous University of Mexico and a Master’s in teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language from the International University of La Rioja, Spain.

I specialize in test preparation (DELE) and Spanish for tourism. I have taught individuals and groups of students in person and via Skype, aged 8 to senior citizens. My students have come from all over the world, including Russia, Germany, Japan, USA, and France. I love sharing my country's culture through my classes in an easy and fun way.

Besides teaching, I love to travel, learn new languages, read Mexican literature, and sing.

"My company is expanding to latin america and we could not find anybody in Moscow who could offer our staff flexible Spanish lessons at a reasonable price. A friend of mine who works at the Bank of Russia recommended Live Lingua to our company and we have since contracted them for Spanish as well as English lessons. The staff who is working with them are very happy with the classes and have made good progress." Evgenia A. - Administrator

"I am retired, and one of my life goals in live was to get the superior certificate [on the DELE exam]. I studied in a number of immersion schools in Spain and Argentina, and even took some of their DELE courses, but I was never able to pass to this final level. Thankfully one of the students I had class with in Spain mentioned you guys. I am glad I found you, and thank you for helping me pass this last hurdle. I would definately recommend Live Lingua for DELE tutoring." Ingrid B. - Retired

"write for new travel German guidebook and have been traveling around Latin America for the last few months. I spoke a bit of Spanish before arriving, but wanted to have regular classes with a teacher to brush up on some small points and polish it as I was traveling. It was a great help to have[my Spanish teacher] available to answer any questions about regional phrases and customes as I traveled. I highly recommend Live Lingua." Jan E. - Travel Writer
