¡Hola! ¿Cómo estás?
Me encanta que quieras conocer más acerca de mí.
Why did an economist make a blog to teach Spanish?
Let me tell you a little story… my name is Aldo Pineda. I was born and grew up in the huge and incredible Mexico City. I studied economics at the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM).
For my thesis, I wrote about the economic importance of students who come to study Spanish in Mexico. Some data from my research found that Spanish is and will be one of the most important languages in the world.
Did you know that there are 500 million people who speak Spanish worldwide? That’s like 67.5% of the population of Europe…wow!
For my podcast, I did an interview with Vania Jovanovich. She has a Youtube channel and speaks perfect Spanish.
Vania knew that when she learned Spanish she would have a huge audience that would be very happy to see her content and that’s why she learned the language
Today, the channel has more than 20 million views, with most of those viewers coming directly from Latin America.
In economics, it is said that language is an economic value because without communication we could not exchange goods and services, so learning Spanish expands your possibilities of cultural and business exchanges exponentially.
Do you you see it? I could not ignore the facts any longer and created this blog so that many more people like you who are interested in learning Spanish would have a place to do so.
How will Blania help me learn Spanish?
I believe that the best way to learn a language is to start speaking it as soon as possible – in the classroom, listening to music or you can even get started by practicing with other spanish-speaking friends.
Through various exchanges and experiences with Spanish students from the United States, it became clear that learning a language has everything to do with lots of practice and motivation – this inspired me to learn English. It also helped me to understand that language is about getting to know one another, to appreciate the value of talking with people, not with apps
I’ll give you tips and techniques that I picked up in my English-speaking background so that you can apply them when you are learning Spanish.
My lack of experience as a Spanish teacher
Maybe my lack of teaching experience helps me see and learn differently.
I have studied English with good teachers but the truth is that I had never learned so much English until I started to have language exchanges with students from the United States and English- speaking countries.
This doesn’t mean that I’m not learning how to teach Spanish. Every day I’m preparing to offer you the best content for you.
Don’t worry, you’re in the right place.
