¡Hola! My name is Maricarmen and I am a native speaker of Spanish from Guanajuato, Mexico. I have an undergraduate degree in teaching Spanish as a Second Language from the University of Guanajuato, where I also did graduate work in education. In addition, I have a certification to teach English.

I have been a Spanish teacher since 2015 and have taught mostly adults, from university age up. Most of my students have been from the US, Europe, or Asia. Besides general Spanish, I can also teach test preparation (DELE).

In addition to teaching, I love creative writing, painting, and short stories.

"My [Spanish] classes are great and my teacher is wonderful, you have a student for life" Virginia J. - Retired

"In my line of work I deal with a lot of Spanish speakers and need specific vocabulary. [My Spanish teacher] was able to work with me to create a custom program to teach me exactly what I needed. Now if a Spanish speaker comes into the office I am the personal they normally call to help." Shahanna N. - Social Worker

"For anybody who really wants to learn Spanish, the Live Lingua schools is the best option. From my teacher to the staff they have all been great. I felt like I was really part of a school and that the people actually cared about me and whether I learned Spanish or not. I have recommended it to all my friends." Gina S. - Store Manager

"3 years and still going. I started with Live Lingua with no experience in Spanish, and just a few months ago I went to Peru for vacations, and everybody was really impressed with my Spanish level. It felt great." Ann Marie L. - Trader
