Hej! This is Mónica and I come from Barcelona, but I currently live in Sweden where I am working. I speak fluent Spanish and Catalan as native languages, and in an advanced level, English, Norwegian and Intermediate Swedish and French.
I have a background in Geology and Physical Geography with specialization in Glaciology.I am also teacher of Spanish/Catalan and Norwegian. Certified teacher of Spanish by IH.
My hobbies are hiking into the nature and travelling, learning new languages and yoga (Bikram, hatha and Ashtanga).
I am a certified teacher of Ashtanga yoga as well.
PROFESSIONAL CAREER AS TEACHER:
My first teaching contact was 23 years ago, but professionally I started teaching Norwegian and Science face-to-face, and mainly online, about 12 years ago.
I focused also in teaching not only to teenagers and adults, but also nurses, doctors or engineers that wanted to move out to Noway for a better professional career improvement.
My professional vocation and passion is teaching so, I have helped lots of people/students to be more independent achieving their goals and manage well the use of other languages, specially Norwegian.
The methodology used in my classes are based on:
- Language skills by organizing learning situations, and involving students in controlling their own learning by:
> Doing a classification and characterization of the different types of oral and written language skills.
> Using good strategies for the production and comprehension of texts.
> Providing with useful resources and activities to practice those skills.
- Language practice by using:
> Tasks and activities to practice grammar, and other type of activities that can help for language and speaking.
> Working in reading, communication skills and production of language by discussing different topics and also reading material.
> Speaking and listening by having a good vocabulary list from different fields/topics, common phases for each linguistic context (using listening and interactive resources).
> Written skills and text comprehension - written activities that will expand your vocabulary and the ability to use grammar properly which will also nurture your communication skills.
Based on every student level and own performance.
- Language analysis mainly grammar focus:
> Creation of effective activities for learning grammar.
> Evaluation tests to check level during the course and see weaknesses in learning process.
For our classes will be necessary to have:
- Good internet connection.
- Zoom or Skype platform.
- Be eager to learn and have a great motivation to improve your future!
