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 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.

Meet the student care team

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!

Jeanne

Hola! I’m the new French intern of the group, my name is Jeanne – Jeanne being unpronounceable to many of you, so you can call me Jota.

I have been living in Spain for almost a year now. Spain attracted me with its sun, its beaches, its traditional food and especially its inhabitants, which for me have one of the best mentalities in the world.

I’m delighted to have integrated into the team at AIL Málaga, because it’s great, dynamic and very close. I’m really loving the contact and meeting new people, AIL Málaga is the best place to work and discover new cultures.

My main hobbies are fashion, traveling, and going out with friends. On my sunny weekends off you can find me on Calle Larios shopping or strolling with my friends in this beautiful historic center.

Brooke

¡Hola! My name is Brooke and I’m from England. I have chosen to work in Spain as part of my studies to experience other weather conditions besides constant rain and darkness! Málaga is the perfect destination for me because it offers more things to see and do than the majority of other beach towns & cities. I believe that you can find something here for everyone; whether you are interested in history, Spanish culture and food, or if you are like me and just love to shop and drink cocktails by the sea!

I am a very creative person so the majority of my hobbies are different forms of artistic expression – whether it´s traditional outlets such as drawing and painting or methods more related to people such as fashion and make-up.

I believe everyone should encourage themselves to try new things, so I am very excited to meet people, improve my language skills and explore different places while working here in Málaga.

Peter

My name is Peter Kasinamunda, I was born in Zimbabwe but I have spent most of my life in Malaysia. I am glad that AIL Malaga has decided to make me part of their team. I hope I can learn quite a lot during my time at AIL and that I will be able to contribute positively toward the school.

For the short time I have been Malaga, I have fallen in love with the city. Malaga is beautiful, and it has so much to offer: from the heritage of the city to the delicious food. This place has a little slice of heaven that can easily attract anyone.

I consider myself logical and very analytical. I like spending time exploring how a system can be improved and made more efficient. My hobbies are reading books and watching Formula One. I believe that for people to grow we should get out of our comfort zone and venture in to the unknown. Life is an open book, write your own story.
