Meet the teachers

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.

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

I started teaching 10 years ago at the institute Cervantes in Manchester and I work in AIL Malaga becuase I wanted to live in a Mediterranean paradise called Málaga.

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.

Álvaro

Hello! I’m Álvaro. I was born in Málaga and I love this city. I have always wanted to teach Spanish. I really like to get to know my students and teach them my own language. It is very pleasing for me when they are engaged with the class activities and we learn a lot about each other.

I like to work in AIL Málaga because the atmosphere is very welcoming. I love to teach new grammar structures and then practice them speaking with fun exercises.

I am an open minded and friendly person. During my free time I like going jogging and watching Real Madrid’s games. I really like Malaga for its vast history, the simplicity of the people and varied leisure options.

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.

Pina

My name is Pina, I’m from the south of Italy (the italian Andalucía :-)). I have always loved Spain and since I have studied In the University of Complutense in Madrid I wanted to continue living in Spain. I moved from Madrid to Málaga because I wanted to discover a new city and have new experiences. I have always felt attracted to Andalusian culture, Flamenco, the Arabian style of its historical past, the joy of its inhabitants and the constantly sunny climate of the south made me choose Malaga as a new destination.

I’m very happy to work in AIL Malaga because it gives me the opportunity to meet many people, each with their own story. Every day is a different “movie” and I learn new things.

My main hobby is music. I am a singer and dancer of  traditional music in southern Italy. Before coming to Málaga, I used to participate with my group in international folk festivals all over Italy. When I’m not working at school, I like doing excursions to discover new parts of this beautiful city, visit museums, go to the beach and playing my guitar!

¡Hola hola! I’m Katarina, the slovakian girl!  I came to Malaga with an internship program and since I arrived I have fallen in love with Andalusia, the Spanish culture, the friendly people, the delicious food and also this city. Moreover  I find  it a very beautiful country full of happy and generous people and Im also interested in learning the Spanish language.

I have to say that from the beginning of my internship I feel part of this language school’s family. I’ve learned a lot and I really appreciate the friendly environment, team workcreativity and the whole idea of noche de copas  in which we go out with our students to know them better and practice Spanish. Join us partying!

I am an active and friendly person and a movie maniac, few of my favorite ones are: Godfather, The Departed, The Shutter Island, Warrior. I like practicing various sports such as taebo, tabata, yoga, wakeboarding, swimming, scuba diving and more. My great passions are also traveling, meeting new people, spending time with my family and friends and also enjoying things which life offers us.

Claire

Salut! I’m Claire, representing France in the school :-). I came to live in Málaga because the last year I was in Ireland for my Erasmus and I met my “malagueño” boyfriend. As I had to start the year with an internship, I decided to come here to work and improve my Spanish (Two birds with one stone!!).

I enjoy my work in AIL Málaga because the people are very nice and for me it’s a very important point to have a nice work environment. Moreover thanks to my internship I have the opportunity to improve my Spanish and my English.

I’m a curious person who likes learning new things and help people. I love to do horse-riding, playing basketball, reading and travellingI love Malaga because it’s a beautiful city, I like the beach, the parties and here the people are more friendly and welcoming than in France.
