I have lived, worked and studied in Germany, Switzerland, Spain, France and the United States of America. I like to engage on student's level of interest and make it fun. Immersion is what I believe to be the most successful method in breaking down barriers in communication, especially when it involves a foreign language. Structure is the foundation of a language as laid down in its grammar. Classes are a mix of text work, grammar and phonetic awareness with vocabulary building.
I have been teaching languages since 1998, and co-owned a language academy in Irun, Spain. Since then, I have taught online and on site classes to many individuals around the globe and have had interesting opportunities to work as an interpreter in various language combinations.
My students seek to improve on their skills mostly for social reasons or to improve their chances in their career and yes they have grown, because they are all great communicators, and not only in one language.

Claudia really takes the time to find out about your interests and incorporates them into the class. This really makes it easier to understand different concepts the way she helps to present them. Honestly, every class session there is never a dull moment. She creates an atmosphere that will make you feel relaxed at all times but also still keep you thinking. I highly recommend Claudia to anyone that wants to learn a new language in a fun exciting manner.
