Esther - Kids' Coordinator

  • Ph.D in Hispanic Literature and Theory of Literature by the University of Valladolid (Spain)
  • Master in Special Needs Education at the University of Oslo


Beside of teaching Spanish language lessons, I am responsible for teacher’s training, as well as maintaining and ensuring quality in teaching. My goal is to consolidate an appropriate working atmosphere in order to promote the teaching of Spanish language and culture in the most pleasant and appropriate way for our young students.

Studied in Hispanic Literature and Theory of Literature by the University of Valladolid (Spain), My Ph.D. focuses on inter-textual connections among cultural texts, claiming the notion of Literature as an enormous single book ready to be used by readers and writers. I have published several articles in pear review journals as well as chapters in specialized books in Spanish.

With more than eight years of teaching experience, I am conscious of the importance of attending diversity in the classroom and situating the student in the center of the teaching-learning process. My desire to excel as a teacher led me to Norway, where I took a Master in Special Needs Education at the University of Oslo. This degree has broadened my knowledge about teaching technics and methodologies, which I am willing to apply in Spanish World.

“During the past 5 years, I have been teaching Spanish in England, Spain and here in Hong Kong, where my love for teaching language has grown while witnessing how learning a second language can bring a positive and enduring impact on life. It is there to enhance the culture, understanding the values, norms and manners of others. People learn who they really are through the learning process and find out how others communicate and live.
Teaching is a challenging career, nothing but rewarding. It requires the best of the teacher but also the aim of learning has to be intentional for the student. There is where the magic and the communication happens, teacher and student are sharing knowledge and both are learning about themselves and their cultures. Could any job be more exciting?”
