Leodannis Peña Fortuna
Director

Leodannis studied Modern Languages at the Autonomous University of Santo Domingo (UASD) in the Dominican Republic. It is this passion for modern languages that led Leodannis to establish My Spanish Lessons Ltd, as he aimed to pass on this love of the Spanish language, and other modern languages, to others. Leodannis has also complemented this academic background with a number of important educational workshops in Spain and the UK. These workshops have helped to build up the foundations of his teaching method, achieving with these the most valuable knowledge in terms of teaching Spanish as a second language. Through this academic understanding of modern languages, with a focus specifically on how to educate others about their use and value, Leodannis has become an exceptionally skilled Spanish course, online teacher.

Laura Gonzalez
Spanish Teacher
"¡Hola! Teaching has been my passion since I was 13. As a native Spanish speaker, sharing the love for my language and culture makes me so happy. I was born and raised in Toledo (a city close to Madrid) and I studied my degree on English Studies in Madrid where I learned how to teach modern languages to non native speakers and after that I moved to London and studied my MA on Applied Linguistics and Communication at Birbeck University.
 
I love teaching Spanish and I also make sure my students have fun while their learning because I think motivation is key. Also I try to bring much of my culture into the classroom as much as possible, as well as typical expressions that you wouldn't normally learn unless you live in one of the Spanish speaking countries. 
 
I believe that learning a new language can bring so many new opportunities into your life as well as friends and it also improves your memory. Besides, I love seeing the improvement that my students make through weeks and how their self-confidence builds up. 
 
Finally, learning a language that have different sounds and rules can be challenging and quite intimidating sometimes when it comes to public speaking. So, I always make sure the atmosphere is great so that my students feel comfortable and they know they will not be judged if they make a mistakes".
