We are excited to announce the newest member to our team, Lia, who joins us from Buenos Aires, Argentina! You can learn more about Lia below, or view her personal page on our website, including testimonials from her students, here: http://lingo-live.com/lia.html
Lia has over 10 years experience teaching Spanish and also has experience conducting Business English, Crash Courses and intensive language courses in companies. Her experience also includes preparing students for international exams such as Cambridge and Toefl, TOEIC, DELE, BUSINESS SPANISH AND BEC.
Lia has her educational degree from Teachers Training College and is an undergraduate translator at Instituto Lenguas Vivas Posadas with a specialization in science, literature and technology. Currently, Lia is also taking up a program in Education at ITACA University, México.
In her own words: "For many years, I have been organizing E-Learning programs and trainings for students from all over the world. I teach English and Spanish online through communicational tools such as Skype or virtual classrooms. My clients are important companies such as Coca-Cola, Johnson Group, Mustang Systems and Melitta France, situated in Europe, the US and Latin-America. For each student, I create a learner profile in order to find out the student’s needs, objectives and interests. Thus, I am able to develop my own pedagogical material, focusing on the student’s progressive learning and personal development. In addition I have a wide experience in DELE training and Business Spanish for business people and professionals.
On the other hand I have experience in translating various documents such as contracts and other legal documents, general business documents, marketing material, diplomas, certificates and websites. My language combinations include Spanish-English and English-Spanish. I also have experience writing marketing-related articles in Spanish and English for different clients.
I am also organizing Spanish immersion courses in Buenos Aires for foreigners desiring to learn Spanish in an environment where the language is spoken by natives. These immersion courses distinguish themselves from ordinary lessons as lessons are conducted while students immerse in the Argentinean culture: they might take place on a boat on the Rio de la Plata or on an Estancia, while visiting museums or during city tours. Last but not least, I am committed to my job, I am creative and responsible and I enjoy working with groups and people from my own country as well as from foreign countries. I enjoy exchanging cultural experiences and I am always open for the questions, ideas and concerns of my clients, students and my business partners. Together, problem-solving and reaching objectives is more interesting, effective and enjoyable. "
