MY Story

I'm Isabel Aguirre

My passion, languages.

I was born in the seventies in Bilbao, a then industrial city in northern Spain that has become a tourist destination in recent decades. 

My love for languages started early as I went to a German school and since childhood I have been in contact with other languages and cultures. Communication fascinated me since I was a child.  That’s why I graduated in German and English Translation from the University of Granada and worked for twenty years in private companies in leading sectors such as the automotive and environmental sectors for important international companies such as Siemens, Mercedes Benz, or Talgo.

I returned to university twenty years later and graduated with a Master’s degree in Teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language from the Menéndez Pelayo University in collaboration with the Cervantes Institute. My final master’s thesis is about the anxiety of the Spanish learner in the online class. I have been working as a Spanish teacher at the Deusto University  with students from all over the world from levels A1 to C1.

I also teach business Spanish to professionals of all nationalities. I am also accredited by the Cervantes Institute as an oral examiner for all DELE levels and as a trainer for the SIELE exams.

Every new student is a challenge for me, I take it very seriously, although in class I always try to keep a sense of humour. I dedicate all my attention to making sure that my students enjoy and take full advantage of each class and thus make progress day by day. My greatest satisfaction is when I check the progress of my students. 

Each person is unique and so I design the classes in a personalized way.

As an expert in language teaching, I am committed to achieving the best results together by using adapted, enjoyable and efficient activities.

My methodology is based on flexibility and on my knowledge of people and their needs. A great deal of empathy and sympathy is always present to make the journey easier. Affective factors are key in the language learning process, with your motivation and without anxiety the results are going to be amazing.

Trust in my experience to be able to reach your goal and speak Spanish in a natural and fluent way.
