Bienvenidos a la clase de Profe Jimena
Hola, soy Profe!! If you are reading this, then I am or will be your Spanish teacher :) I am from Querétaro, México and I moved to Oregon in 2007 after graduating with a Spanish degree from a university in my home country. It is a pleasure to welcome all of you to the class as I am looking forward to working with you in your journey through second language adquisition.
I hope you find an interesting class where you will learn a different way to express yourself by speaking in Spanish.
Learning another language is a challenging task, yet it can be very enjoyable if you come with an open mind, willing to learn and respect the culture you will learn about.
Another important thing...be patient with yourself! Being able to communicate in a second language takes practice and time! Eventually you'll find yourself "¡hablando en español!
Buena Suerte (Good luck ;) )
