ABOUT THE TEACHER
My name is Marina García Rodríguez. I am from Madrid, the capital of Spain and I have studied Modern Languages and Translation in Alcalá de Henares, Cervantes' hometown. Apart from translation modules, I also took some courses of teaching.
Currently, I work as a Spanish Quality Assurance Tester, which main duty is to translate and proofread. For this job, a great knowledge of Spanish and good look for details are needed. As a translator and proofreader, I care about the language and I put special emphasis in learning all new grammar rules and expressions that may change from time to time in order to be updated.
I also have experience teaching both Spanish and English to children and adults and in different language levels. When teaching a language, I am concious that old methods in which the student only learns grammar rules and impossible vocabulary are not longer useful in our society. Therefore, I always try to innovate and teach in a dynamic way both the language and the culture of the Spanish-speaking countries.
