Melina Vicén Martín

I studied History of Art but life led me to teach Spanish while living in Italy and I discovered my great passion and vocation, teaching ELE. That is why I trained as a teacher through a master's degree at the University of Alcalá de Henares. During these years I have continued my training by taking different courses from the Instituto Cervantes (preparation for the DELE among others). I have worked in Italy, France and Spain for different institutions (academies, schools, universities, centres accredited by the IC) and with students of different nationalities and ages.

I have a degree in Hispanic Philology and Textual Interpretation from the RESAD. I combine my teaching work with my artistic side. I have taught several subjects: Language, Literature, Theatre and Spanish for foreigners. I specialised as a Spanish teacher in an intensive course at Cálamo&Crag and started my career in England. For some years now, I have been giving classes for companies and academies in Madrid to students of different ages and nationalities. I continue to train myself by attending seminars and courses on ELE.

The DELE Spanish diplomas are official degrees accrediting the degree of competence and command of the Spanish language, which are awarded by the Instituto Cervantes on behalf of the Ministry of Education and Professional Training of Spain.

There are 6 different levels of Spanish exam included in each diploma, with different calls throughout the year. Each diploma grants the level of language skills (A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2).

DELE diplomas are internationally recognized, and enjoy great prestige, not only among public and private educational institutions and authorities but also in the business world and among chambers of commerce. They are an official guarantee in the evaluation and certification of language proficiency in Spanish. In our school we help you prepare, so that your level of Spanish is officially recognized and that you can obtain the best results on the exam.

When I got to know its facilities, location and price offer I did not hesitate, now I have been several months, and I love the classes, the people and especially the teachers! The teaching model is super fun and very rigorous. I’m sure I will reach my goals of speaking Spanish and starting university in a few months …
