Learning a second language can sometimes be quite a difficult and painful process. We tend to try to force this new language structure on to the existing mental framework our brains have built for our mother tongue.
Instead cognitive learning is an organic teaching method that enables you to learn in harmony with how your brain is designed to work. Our teaching methods allow you to build new neural pathways and networks (not jam existing ones), so that words and language come to you easily.
Cognitive learning is flexible and allows for the fact that each of us is different, with a unique blend of learning styles, goals and objectives. I work with each of my students in a structured way, using appropriate techniques, so that they learn the language to their desired level in the easiest and most efficient way possible for them.
I have a Master’s Degree in Linguistics from the University of Buenos Aires* with my specialist subject being Cognitive Linguistics. I have also attended the International House Spanish Teacher Training and I started the UBA Training Program in Teaching Spanish as a Foreign or Second Language. I have been working as a Spanish teacher since 2006 and throughout these years, I have taught over 700 hundred private students from all around the world.
In addition, I have had some work published (link) and I have also spoken at the 7th symposium organized by Argentine Association of Cognitive Linguistics. I have recently started an internship to conduct cognitive linguistic research at University of Buenos Aires under the tutelage of Dr. Claudia Borzi.
I’ve learnt some Italian, basic French and I resumed my Swedish studies not long ago. I am interested in gender studies, politics, economy, linguistics, languages, psychology, and humanistic in general.
