¡Hola! ¿Qué tal?

My name is Mónica and I am a native Spanish speaker living in Prague for over 12 years. Since 2008, I have been teaching Spanish as a foreign language — now focusing on one-on-one online lessons for adults, mostly beginners and intermediate speakers via Zoom or Skype.

At the moment, I offer:

  • online lessons of general Spanish (for beginners and intermediate students), and Spanish conversation (for intermediate and advanced students)
  • language coaching for self-taught students of Spanish looking for a help (all levels) and new learning approaches (beginners and intermediate students)
  • coaching on using Spanish language for both students and Spanish teachers

I have a university degree in Applied linguistics for teaching Spanish as a foreign language (University of Jaén, Spain) as well as in the Philology of Romance languages (University of Oviedo, Spain; University of Basel, Switzerland). In 2005, I received the prestigious Award for the best scientific work in Spain in the national Arquídemes contest.

As an online Spanish teacher and coach, I have students all from all over the world. My pricing differs per case and the frequency of our lessons — single lessons from €25 per hour, monthly plans from €55 per month, and consulting from €40 per hour. I would be happy to give you a more specific offer once I know your needs and expectations.

I also speak several other languages, so feel free to send me an email and I will be looking forward to our first online conversation.

Firsthand recommendations

Highly recommend Monica to anyone who enjoys autonomous online learning. What a brilliant and fun way to learn espanol ;-) This kind of learning gives me the power to regulate and control my own learning activities. And Monica does a great job … she is extremely patient and tailors resources to where I need the most attention. My Spanish has improved massively since taking the first class in August. Monica is an enthusiastic, friendly and well-prepared tutor. She provides heaps of material to go through the study period, you can work at it at your own pace without pressure on your schedule. Monica creates various resources (with focus on all 4 skills: reading, writing, listening and speaking) with awesome exercises where learning and practising feels natural and fun. I love this type of learning as it allows me to use various resources simultaneously — I can read, look things up, watch videos, and listen to different versions of accents while I study.

Mónica is a teacher with a capital T. She is always prepared for her lessons – we use video and audio materials, and games. The time I spend with her is very entertaining, and I get to learn a lot of new things. I have been studying Spanish for only a short time, but Mónica has already done a great job preparing me for my trip to Barcelona, where I did not have any difficulties with my everyday needs (hotel, restaurants, etc.). If you want to learn Spanish, you have to study with Mónica. She is the best teacher!
