Information about Carmen
Hi! My name is Carmen and I`m a Spanish teacher. I was born in Granada, a cute city in the south of Spain where Carmen means `big house with garden`. There, I graduated in philosophy, and learnt there is a word in my language to name the colour clouds turn at sunset. Amazed by that, I moved to Madrid to study arts and, trying to see as many of those clouds as possible, travelled a lot. I ended up in Boston, Massachusetts, where I became a Spanish teacher so I could discuss the details of that colour with everyone (I should add that we discussed other things, too). Back in Madrid, I decided I wanted to know how a human learns to use colours that don`t exist in his or her mother tongue, and got a masters degree in Teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language. Now, I`m living in London, where I continue my cloud research (English skies often have one or two...). I`d love to teach you the name of that sunset colour and every other crucial word you need to know in my language.
