¡Hola! My name is Julio and I am a native Spanish speaker from Bogotá, Colombia. I have a degree in teaching foreign languages from the Universidad Distrital Francisco José de Caldas with a focus on foreign language educational research.

Besides teaching, I enjoy travel, food, and learning about other cultures.
