When I discovered my love for English at the age of 7 in the United States


Publicado por Consuelo

When I was 7 years old I emigrated to New York from Santander.  As all young children do when they are immersed in a language, I quickly learned English and, although I spoke Spanish at home with my parents, English immediately became my primary language.  After being in the U.S. for 30 years, I decided to move to Spain for a year or two because I wanted to experience life here and to know my cousins better, but it's already been 21 years and I'm still here!  I met my husband in Madrid and soon had two children, a boy and a girl and, although I do miss the States a lot sometimes, Spain is my home now (again).  When I was in the U.S. I felt deeply my Spanish roots and had great love for this country.  Now that I am living here I realize that I have two identities, two cultures, and while it is very enriching, it can also be difficult, because you are never completely one thing. There is always a side of you that is missing the other side.  I love to give my conversation classes, and I feel more like a "coach" than a teacher.  I love to talk with my students about every subject, and love to see their enthusiasm and desire to improve their english.  I've been very lucky with my students - they are constantly teaching me new things and have always have been, and continue to be, lovely people.
