WE LOVE WHAT WE DO
I was born in Motril, Granada. Since a very young age, I was very fortunate that my family sent me to study abroad. I spent five years in the UK. This experience was fundamental in broadening my understanding of other cultures and people.
I landed in Seville on a spring morning for my first job teaching Spanish language and culture for North American study abroad students.
Seville exceeded all my expectations, the colors and bright light, the welcoming of people, traditions, life style and food. Seville was unique and a world apart from everything I had seen before;Traditions and popular fiestas were still well alive in Seville: Semana Santa, Feria de Abril, el Rocio, flamenco festivals and bullfighting. What better place to teach Spanish to foreign students and share the passion for our culture?
Now, after more than thirty-six years, I still feel the same passion for sharing our language and culture with hundreds of students from all over the world who come to Giralda Center every year. As Founder of Giralda Center I am very proud to introduce you to our team of Spanish teachers and administration staff under the direction of Charo Trigos. They are a solid and well cohesive professional team, full of energy, vocation, experience, innovation, professionalism, commitment, and above all enthusiasm for their work.
Os esperamos en Sevilla. ¡GRACIAS!
CEO and Founder
Because they create the kind of energy that makes you want to learn. Because the exciting rhythm of the class will thrill you as you learn, so much that at times you won’t believe it when the teacher says, “class over for the day!"
Because they believe any work well done must be done with enthusiasm. Because they chose this profession. Because they love to communicate with other people. Because passion is the word the students most often repeat when they say goodbye.
They are aware of the obligation their work implies. They know that dynamic learning needs good organization and expert handling, with absolute seriousness on the job.
Because for our teachers, innovation in education means investing in research to get the highest results in learning. Because they understand that innovation means working in teams, being flexible in dealing with others and constantly evaluating their work to achieve the best results.
Because at Giralda Center our programs are tried and tested which makes for a smooth running program for the teachers and students. Our courses follow the Instituto Cervantes curriculum and each day and week is planned in detail, including our activities and culture program so that the students benefit from learning in harmony.
Because all teachers at Giralda Center have a minimum of 8 years teaching Spanish as a second language and they have the skills and patience to understand the struggles that foreign language students face when learning a new language. They have the know-how to help our students make the most of their time and learn.
