I am an EFL teacher and teacher trainer working for the University of Catamarca (Argentina) and freelance. I have been teaching foreign languages (English, Spanish, and more recently Portuguese and French) for around 18ys in formal and informal contexts and for different ages and levels. I volunteered as Regional Manager of Spanish South America Language and Travel group, and, although I am not working with them, I support Spanish immersion programes as such.
My main research and training interest areas are: use of games, unconscious acquisition of grammar in Foreign Languages learning, ICT use in teaching FL, autonomous learning.
Updates and other interesting information are in www.spanishsouthamerica.org

This was the best of the best Spanish class that I have attended on WiZiq. The class was well organized. The teacher was patient and great. If any one really want to learn Spanish, I will recommend you to take Miss EdithLuna Villanueva's class. She is an excellent and fabulous teacher.
