Hola a todos!
My name is David Martínez Floria and I am the Spanish Teacher in St Andrew's College Junior School. I have been working with children for four year in different countries including Spain, Ireland and America. I love teaching my language, my main goal is to make the learning of Spanish enjoyable. It is very important for me to take into account the children's likes and interests and connect them with the culture of the language that they are learning.
My lessons are very interactive and close to the reality where the language is going to be used. I use many resources to help the student to reach a significant level of learning, like little workshops, exchanges with Spanish schools, Spanish recipes and more. I have a little language assistant, his name is Pepe, he is from México and guess what? He is a real Robot.
Learning a language is all about interactions and connections. Our classroom is the place where the children experiment with the Spanish culture and language and where they create links which are going to be meaningful for them.
Language is an important key to understanding the world.
