¡Hola! My name is Rocío and I am a native Spanish speaker from Costa Rica. I am certified to teach Spanish through the Tica Spanish School and the Instituto Cervantes. I also took college courses in teaching Spanish and Literature from the Universidad de Costa Rica. I have been teaching Spanish to adults since 2007 in Costa Rica and since 2016, have specialized online teaching. I have taught students from Belgium, Germany, England, China, and Japan, and prefer to use Zoom rather than Skype.
I specialize in teaching test preparation (DELE), professional Spanish, Spanish for tourism, Spanish for business, medical Spanish, and Spanish for teachers. I believe it is important to teach about culture and traditions along with the language.

Since 2021 I am studing specialization in Teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language at the Technological University of Costa Rica(TEC in Cartago, Costa Rica).

Outside of teaching, I enjoy watching movies, reading a good book, cooking, and traveling.

"I spend the whole day working with computers so the idea of being able to learn on them as well has always been appealing to me. With Skype installed on my computer, iPhone and tablet, I can pretty much have classes at any time using a variety of means. It is like being able to take my [Spanish] classroom with me. I believe this is the future of language learning and Live Lingua is leading the way." Bronn A. - Tech Support
