G’day! I’m Alicia, and I’m so glad you’ve found my site!
I’m an Australian woman who has a great passion for both the English and Spanish languages. I was born in Sydney, Australia and I grew up with my family on the Gold Coast. I graduated from university in Darwin and moved to Melbourne in 2012, where I currently live and love.
I have a degree in communications and I have worked for over 10 years in Marketing and Publicity. I have learnt to communicate in a wide variety of English contexts, from academic to journalistic, to advertising, content writing and creative storytelling. In my years as a professional writer, do you know the most valuable thing I learnt? The most useful skill you will ever have is THE ABILITY TO COMMUNICATE.
English Teaching to Spanish Speakers
I started learning Spanish in April 2016 for fun, and I fell in love with learning! Since then, I have made so many Spanish speaking friends online and here in my city as I searched for opportunities to practice. Throughout my language exchanges, I began to understand how hard the English language must be for Spanish speakers. I have the same problems – in reverse!
That’s why I started this website.
