Favourite Places in Barcelona:
My favourite places in Barcelona are the narrow streets of the Gothic Quarter and the Borne. I love getting lost and finding my way around the interesting corners of the Ciutat Vella. I also love the Gracia neighbourhood for its terraces, atmosphere and second-hand bookshops. My third and last favourite place is the Poble Sec neighbourhood for its delicious pinchos (tapas).
I am a very artistic person and whenever I have free time I like to do some kind of craft: painting, macramé, refurbishing old furniture, decorating? My other great hobby is music. I love singing and playing the ukulele.
Being a Spanish teacher means being in constant contact with people from all over the world. At the same time as I teach my language I learn about their cultures. I love to see the enthusiasm of my students to learn Spanish and that they are able to communicate no matter how little knowledge they have of the language.
