Hello everyone. My name is Lorena. I have taught both Spanish and English as second languages. I have a Masters in Applied Spanish Linguistics from Michigan State University and I am currently working on my Masters of Education (Máster de Formación del Profesorado) with a focus on foreign languages at Universidad Miguel Hernández while I work teaching ESL to both children and adults.

I am passionate about language learning/teaching. During my first Masters I focused on Second Language Acquisition. My mother tongue is Spanish but I also speak Valencian/Catalan. I started learning English when I was five and loved it so much that I majored in it at University of Alicante as an undergraduate. I also speak some French and a little bit of Portuguese.

This blog is about the future, both the future of teaching via using technology and gamification, and about teaching how to express the future in English. If you want me to talk about anything in particular, please comment and let me know and I'll do my best. You can also follow me on YouTube and Twitter for updates on my blog and more ESL articles/resources. Once I begin student-teaching next semester the blog will become a diary of my activities in the center.

Thank you for being with me in this new adventure and I hope you find my blog useful :)

  1. Hi Lorena, nice to meet you!
    It would be wonderful to learn about British series or documentaries and the way to watch them for free in order to improve our English. I think it'd be a good entry to read. Looking forward to hearing from you.
