Solana was born in the US but she’s lived in Argentina most of her life. She has a teaching degree and a bachelor in English Language with Literature and Film orientation. She has lots of experience as a teacher both in English and Spanish, but she has also worked in the television and radio industry as a producer. She’s worked for MTV in Buenos Aires and Mexico City, and she’s also lived in Barcelona. Her enthusiasm and energy are unstoppable and contagious.
Callie is another yankee who loves Buenos Aires. This mountain gal left Virginia with a degree in International relations and linguistics from the University of Mary Washington (fun fact: named in honor of the first American president’s mom). After living for a year in Thailand, she met a friend and fell in love with his lunfardo» (Argentinian slang) so she immediately moved to Buenos Aires!
She loves cooking almost as much as she loves eating, and she will never say no to a glass of Malbec. With or without wine, she is always smiling and her smile is contagious to every teacher, student and pet at BAse!
Santiago Hamelau holds a Licenciatura en Letras. He is a writer and loves literature. He is a language enthusiast and gets a kick out of grammar and lexical puzzles. He enjoys bringing texts by Hispano-American writers to the class so that teaching Spanish includes also the transmission of its vast culture. He always proposes games and activities for students to read, write, listen, draw, act and imagine, because he believes that learning a new language means learning to create again the world that surrounds us.
David is so fan of watching films, and that’s how he teaches. He feels like a subject who’s performing different roles in class. He can be serious, funny, mysterious, smart or silly, perfectionist or relaxed. He really enjoys it. He is also usually amazed about how much he can learn from people. So, what a deal! Perfect combination, He teaches you languages, you teach him some other things in exchange. Thus, each class is a piece of Life Cinema. He did not go to Cinema faculty though. He is Bachelor in Arts and in the process of having his Master course degree as Discourse Analyst. There isn’t going to be enough class time for all, but you guys can try at least.
Laura is a playwright and theater director. She loves the Spanish language so much, she moved to three different Spanish-speaking countries so as to get their accents, their specific vocabulary and local expressions and their culture. She lived in Spain, Bolivia and Argentina, meeting new people and writing theater. Some of this artistic world finds its way in her classes, which makes them fun, creative and intellectual.
Adrián does not like to be in pictures, but in real life he’s always there for anybody who needs him. We haven’t caught him red handed with a smile, but still he is quite funny. He did stand up comedy and if you’re lucky enough, he’ll grant you a joke. He’s in charge of all those tasks teachers hate to do: paperwork and maintenance. Oh, and above all, he is in charge of all our asados!!!
Well, Praga is not really one of the teachers, but she does tech us lots of stuff too. She has one blue eye and one brown eye (that’s right!), her spots are brown and she is absolutely deaf (fortunately for her, imagine what it would be like otherwise, she lives in a language institute!!). Friendly and always alert to see if she can score something to eat, you’ll meet her soon…
