Nationality, gender or educational background should never stop us from striving for the life we want.
Hoy tengo el placer de presentarte a Estefy, una profesora de español de Argentina que vive en Valencia, España . Conocí a Estefy hace poco tiempo, primero solo por Facebook pero mientras tanto charlamos por Skype también. Estefy es la profesora perfecta para ti cuando quieres aprender más que gramática y vocabulário porque su enfoque está en la cultura y como el idioma y su uso nos enseña mucho sobre un país o una región y su gente.

Later on, we became friends because we both lived in Portugal and had the chance to see each other in real life,
