Gokulananda Nandan Spanish Teacher and IBDP Examiner

The student will be offered tailored classes based on the requirement of the student. So that the students can taste the success, they will be trained in cracking the questions in exam and provided numerous worksheets for practice. Being an IBDP examiner and freelance editor, I will be able to empower students with the inside story of IBDP exam, creative writing, and editing.
Communicative Language Teaching (CLT) methodology is used for Spanish language learners so that they get to communicate their thoughts and opinion in Spanish. These students will get to know the similarities and differences between Spanish and Indian culture.
Those who would like to take online classes, will have a unique experience of technology-led
classroom. With the incorporation of pen tablet and Canvas Instructure - a digital assignment platform - into the classes, the online students can also have an experience of a physical class.
I look forward to talking to all of you interested in learning both Spanish and English. And last but not the least is all students will be provided a demo class of half an hour.
