What or better said, who is ´Spanish Courses Altea´
Spanish courses Altea; My name is Javi Mateo, I am a Spanish citizen from Alicante and based in the beautiful village of Altea. My background is in the world of pedagogy, psychology and nursing. Though originally I was an English teacher, I have become a Spanish teacher after studying through Cervantes Institute and Spanish Courses Altea is the consequence of that. While achieving my studies I worked in different fields such as Sports, Leisure and Hospitality. Furthermore I taught at different national public schools, a Norwegian private school (currently teaching there). Further I instructed Dutch trainees for a Dutch firm here in the area of Altea combining all this while teaching private students.
Spanish courses Altea; I am passionate about languages, I am studying Dutch and Norwegian grammar to apply that to my Classes with Dutch and Norwegian students and I have a basic knowledge of Dutch and I am starting to speak this beautiful language. Dutch has been connected to my professional and private life for years.

A sunny scenery with picturesque towns along the coast and in the interior, the Costa Blanca offers an incomparable frame of beauty, nature, pleasure and culture.
To finish my introduction I would like to point out that thanks to my students I have become a better teacher. I am convinced that teaching is something bidirectional. I am not the only active part in the process of teaching, from you, my students, I learn a lot and it makes me, without a doubt, a more empathetic and attentive teacher to understand your necessities, and that is why, I want to thank you in advance because I am sure that I will learn a lot from you. We all gain in the teaching process. You learn from me and I learn from you.
