¡Hola! My name is Stephanie. I am a native Spanish speaker from Costa Rica, and I am currently living in Jakarta, Indonesia.

I have a Bachelor Degree in Fine Arts, Licentiate (like a license) Degree in Graphic Design, and an ELE certificate to teach Spanish as a Foreign Language from Open Academy.


I am currently learning Indonesian and Japanese so I know what it´s like to be a student. I am everything I would like my Indonesian teachers to be: I am really calm, I smile a lot, I want you to feel comfortable and have fun in my class, I like repeating myself a lot and I usually like to explain and then give you time to practice.

I like to:
- Laugh and make my students laugh in my classes
- Tell stories
- Make my students feel comfortable
- Create a real bond with them
- Do a lot of practice
- Be aware that we have a lot of time to learn and that it’s okay to make mistakes
- Go slowly and write everything in the chat

When it comes to my teaching style, in my classes we will always have:

- Good Communication
- A lot of practice
- Repetition
- Cultural Background
- We will go at your own pace
- I will teach you how to speak like a real human being and not like a Robot (So important, right?)
- Aaaaand we´ll avoid tacky Spanish that we always find in books and even in Duolingo

I would love to be your teacher, if you want me to speak Spanish like a native, schedule a class with me. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this, and I hope I’ll see you later in class..!!!!

¡Adiós! Chao, Chao. Byeeee :D :D

"just passed my C1 DELE exam, the examiner told me she thought I was already ready to take the C2 level. This is great, I am so happy right now!" Takako I. - Tourism

"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

"I had lived in central america with my parents when I was a child, and used to speak Spanish but as I grew up I forgot. Now I am feeling comfortable speaking again." Slovhenia D. - Business

"If you ever want to improve your Spanish and travel around the world at the same time, this is the way to do it. As an English teacher I move to a new place every 1-2 years, and this way I can keep up my studies where ever I am." Celine T. - Teacher
