Favourite places in Barcelona:
The Gothic area and Grŕcia are my favourite areas. Outside of Barcelona I recommend Sitges and any of the towns on the Costa Brava.
Travelling, learning about new cultures and different people.
I like everything about Barcelona from its size to its colour as it moves from season to season. You can enjoy contemplating the modernistic architecture on Paseo de Gracia or losing yourself in the narrow streets of the Gothic area- it’s priceless. Gracia is also one of my favourite areas. I like BCN for its contrasts; it combines the old and the new with ease. And of course, the sea makes the city special.
My special interest in Spanish Language Teaching is preparing students for the DELE exam. As a certified DELE examiner myself, I know just what students need to pass the exam. We have a 95% pass rate at Camino!
