Information about Monica
Hello! My name is Monica and I currently hold a BA in Modern Languages (Spanish and German) from the University of Birmingham and an MSc from the University of Oxford. As part of my degree, I have spend a year abroad studying at the University of Heidelberg (Germany) and the University of Santiago de Compostela (Spain). The focus of my graduate studies was on Latin American politics and contemporary history. I am very passionate about travelling, languages, philosophy, and historical linguistics.
As regards my languages classes, they are not only focused on grammar and vocabulary, but also on many aspects of Iberian/Latin American and German/Swiss/Austrian culture and I can tailor each class to suit my student`s needs and personal interests. I am a very friendly and approachable person and have worked as an interpreter and translator for the past 5 years, dealing with clients from a wide range of socio-economic backgrounds and ethnicities.
