Glad that you are here!
My name is Margarita. Born and raised in Mexico City, I have always been interested in learning languages and getting to know different cultures from all over the world.
After my Bachelor in International Relations I started working for two private language centers in Mexico City and I found my passion: teaching Spanish in a communicative way! So I completed a course to become a teacher of Spanish as a foreign language at Instituto Hemingway, an accredited centre of the Instituto Cervantes (the largest institution in the world dedicated to teaching Spanish- and to foster the cultures of Spanish-speaking countries).
In 2009 I moved to Amsterdam with my Dutch partner. Since then, I have enjoyed teaching Spanish to many dedicated and multi-talented individuals with high levels of creative energy. At the same time I started learning Dutch and some years later I began to study at the Utrecht Institute for Interpreters and Translators (ITV Hogeschool voor Tolken en Vertalen). After having enjoyed living in Amsterdam for almost 8 years, I moved to Utrecht in 2019.
All my professional activities are related to languages, culture, translating and teaching Spanish. So, for example, I am the Secretary of Stichting Sonoro www.stichtingsonoro.com, a Dutch based foundation that promotes musical and cultural workshops for children in Veracruz, Mexico.
In my blog www.nuestraholanda.com you will find activities for Spanish speaking residents living in the Netherlands, such as workshops, concerts, cultural events, parties and interviews.
I love learning! And yes, teaching Spanish is learning!
