Meet the teachers

Verónica

¡Hola! I am the madrileña teacher, the coolest! 😀

I started teaching ten years ago and I was hooked on this profession, I discovered my vocation. The passion for teaching Spanish led me to Manchester, where I was teaching at the Cervantes Institute. A few years later I decided to come to AIL Malaga to live in one of the Mediterranean paradises.

I like to be a teacher because, I enjoy helping others to learn and I’m keen into making the Spanish lessons useful for the students by adapting my methodology as much as possible to the students’ needs.

I’m very enthusiastic with my work and I am also a perfectionist. During my free time I like going to the cinema and read Spanish teaching article.  I love Malaga for its cultural diversity, the really pleasant climate and the Mediterranean dishes.

Noemí

My name is Noemi, I was born in Canarias but I have lived in Málaga since I was 6 months old so I feel 100% “boquerona”. Since I was little I wanted to be a Spanish teacher because I really like to communicate with people and I enjoy giving Spanish classes. For me, the most important when you’re a teacher is well-knowing the language and teaching it in a fun and practical way.

I like teaching all the skills, but if I have to choose, I prefer the grammar, because it’s a challenge for me to teach it in a simple and attractive way for the students.

I like to work in AIL Málaga for the great atmosphere and spirit of the school. During the classes, I get to know my students to adapt  the class to their needs. During my free time I like going to the beach, drawing and going out with my friends to enjoy the weather and the food of Málaga.

Macarena meet the teacher ail malaga school

Hi! I am Macarena, another one “boquerona” in AIL Malaga. As a little girl I used to dream about being a journalist. I had my little, secret diary in which I was collecting all information about my relatives and writing short stories. Now I m mainly surrounded by books and notebooks because I have decided to be a teacher! Inside of them I m putting together information how to improve lessons to make them be the best for my students.

When i ve finished my study, I decided to make my life even more colorful and joyful. I ve packed my belongings and gone to Norway to experience the adventure of my life. Despite the low temperature outside, Norway has welcomed me as a Spanish teacher very warmth. Immersing in a culture and its traditions, I ve experienced unforgettable enriching time. But above all I ve discovered my passion to teach Spanish!

I consider myself as a very cheerful girl who loves jokes and laughter. Even when the topic of the lesson its grammar, the atmosphere is great and together we are having fun. Furthermore I like teaching a past tense, by talking about events of the past we can get to know each other better.

In my free time I enjoy watching thrillers and dramas. My favourite are “Seven” and “Desde mi cielo”. Have you ever watched them? Moreover I love travels. I would die to visit Cuba! I think its citizens are pretty similar to us in Malaga. Always grinning, living a chearful and pure life.

Juanlu

Hola amigos. I am Juanlu the authentic “extremeño” in the school. If you want to have a good time in classes, I can tell you a secret – I am the funniest one in all school!

I was born in Merida, the millenary city capital of Extremadura. When I finished my studies on Law, I feel my passion for teaching Spanish: I packed my belongings and I travel to the capital of the byzantine empire: Istanbul. This life-changing adventure lasted for 5 years and I got the most of every single day. When I return to my beloved country I was welcomed into the AIL Madrid family and now I am also part of the fun AIL Malaga family. Travelling and feeling new experiences has always being my passion and the most enriching memories I have. If you like travelling I strongly recommend you immersion yourself in the culture and language, it will change your mind and future!

Now that I live and I am able to lost myself in the secret corners of Malaga, I can undoubtedly say it has stolen my heart: the narrow historical streets, the smell of “biznagas” and the taste of the sardines slowly cooked in the fire, has made me discover the essence and charm of this city. When you are here with us you will truly love its ambient, relax on the beach during the day and have fun in the centre full of pubs and discos, which never sleeps.

As a teacher I love working with people and make them feel the Spanish language as a fun and powerful tool for their future. My students always emphasize my patience and creativity so even preparing to the exam its fun with me.

Rafael

Hello everyone! I am the “cordobés”,maybe you have heard about Córdoba for its Cathedral-Mosque (yes, they both are together). When I was a teenager I did an immersion course in Ireland and I felt in love with the whole experience. Since then I have always wanted to share that enriching experience with students from all over the world who come to learn Spanish.

I consider myself as friendly guy who loves meeting people from all places. I really enjoy helping our students to make their stay unforgettable. I am very passionate about practicing tennis and watching football matches. My favorite football team is Real Madrid. Even though I am a big fan of Spanish food (paella, tortilla, flamenquín…), pizza Carbonara is always the first option when I want to treat myself.

Verónica

Hello! I am Verónica, the Willi Fog of the school. Although I was born in a little village in Córdoba, I have lived in different Spanish cities, like Málaga and Huelva, where I studied in the university. Furthermore, I have lived in several countries like Italy, Ireland, England and the United States. After having this “little” tour around the world I decided to come back to Málaga because “how we live here is like nowhere else in the world”.

I have always loved to meet new people from other countries, and in AIL Málaga I have the opportunity not only to help them but also to teach them a bit of our culture and language.

In my free time I love dancing, I am “salsera” and “bachatera”, I love latin music. I also like to travel and to ride my bike.

The two things I like the most in Málaga are a delicious cake called “palmeras of kinder” from the “Casa Kiki”, a bake shop which is just 2 minutes far from our school; and also the seafront promenade where I usually skate, walk and enjoy the sea.

Silvia

Silvia student help meet team ail malaga

Hi everyone, I m Silvia! A native Madrileña (Madrid) with a heart from Malagueña. In my leisure time I traverse the world to discover its endless beauty. Malaga its my little piece of paradise to which I always come back with a sincere grin on my face. Here a sun shines like nowhere else in the world!

I truly enjoy relaxing on sandy beaches decorated by palm trees which reaches the sky. Meanwhile taking a refreshing bath in the sea, listening the sing of colorful parrots and letting sun rays to heat my body… It is what I was missing the most when I was living in London – all 15 years! But above all it was a wonderful experience which taught me a lot about cultural wealth and its differences, letting me grow as a person. Immersion in a different culture and language made me be a self confident person, fluently speaking in English with many new friends from all over the world.

After 10 years of work in many various language schools, as an experienced worker I ve decided to join the AIL Malaga family. That school is very different from any I have ever seen in my life. A team is so close to students, able to help them any time they need, and so am I. Together we create student friendly place which is a second home for us.

In the evenings I rediscover my passion to cooking traditional Spanish courses and exploring hidden charming paths of Malaga on my electric scooter. Lets have fun!

Pamela

Hi guys – I am Pamela. A polish girl with an English name living in Malaga. Good combination – it cannot be boring! I love trying new things, so my life is full of adventures and good memories.

I am coming from a small town in Poland, called Sulechów. Since I was young I loved watching Argentinian telenovelas, my favourite one was “Muñeca Brava”. My love to Spanish language was growing along with me. In 2016, I visited Spain for the first time. It was like a long holiday called Erasmus Program ;). Studying both in Spanish and English was crazy for me. Guess what! Yes, I ‘ve fallen in love with Spain completely.

I’ ve recently finished a masters degree in psychology and now in AIL Malaga I mix my passion with marketing and language skills. People here are more than friendly and fun. What I love the most of Malaga is going to the beach, the “always sunny” and warm weather and the historical center of Malaga. If I could, I would take some of exotic Palmeras to my garden in Poland!
