How would it be a Spanish school without teachers?

How would it be Learn More than Spanish without its magnificent team?

In our blog, we have been talking about the Spanish language, about the Colombian culture and about Bogota city.

Our goal at LMTS is not only to help you learn Spanish but that you get to know the authenticity of Colombia and its people. We want you to feel close to us; to our country, our traditions and our language.

LMTS is more than just a Spanish school, it’s a place where all cultures converge, it’s a place where people feel at home while learning a language.

Nothing we do would it be possible without the outstanding job of our teachers and the administrative team.

We know many of you wanted to visit us during 2020 but due to the pandemic, it wasn’t possible. Instead, many of you have decided to start – or continue- learning Spanish online.

You have had the opportunity to interact with some of our teachers but you still don’t know all the team.

That’s why we have started a series of short articles in which we introduce you to the LMTS family (i.e. teachers, administrative team and students).

Let’s start with one of our teachers.

Meet Luis González, he is not only one of our Spanish language teachers but he is also our academic coordinator.

Luis has been working at LMTS since 2017 and he loves working with us.

Luis says:

“What I like about my job is that there is a very positive and calm atmosphere.

This allows us to develop new strategies, to do research, and to do different things to improve academic processes. To improve students’ experiences and for them to have good results in learning Spanish.

I also like that there is a great work team. That allows us to grow constantly, both as a school and as a person.

It’s really like a family, and I like that a lot.“

Once all borders are open and it is safer to travel, we hope to see you in Bogota!
