¡Hola! My name is Juanma. I am from a small village, called Calamonte, in Extremadura, Spain. I majored in Translation at the Universidad de Granada. After that, I got a Master’s degree in Teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language from the Universidad de Salamanca.

I worked as a Spanish teacher in the United States (Texas) with the Language Assistant Program of the Spanish Embassy. Back in Spain and while doing the Master’s degree, I volunteered for the university, where I taught international undergraduate students.

Among my hobbies, I enjoy traveling and practicing outdoor sports, so I am sure that being in Colorado will be a great experience. I also love learning languages and knowing new cultures; that is why I am looking forward to live within the Colorado College community, where I hope to make a good contribution by spreading the Spanish language and culture and, at the same time, learn from it.
