ANA CAROLINA URRUTIA
Director

Chilean, born in Santiago. She has a B.A. in Systems Analysis from the Technology University Santos (FATEC-BS) in Brazil, and a postgraduate degree (certificate?) in teaching Spanish to Brazilians from the Catholic University of São Paulo (PUC-SP). Her experience is 18 years teaching Spanish and Portuguese Classes as Second Languages, both in Chile and in Brazil, including teaching those languages for business in national and multinational companies. Her classes feature technology, customization, versatility, and interculturalism in both the business area and social life. “After fifteen years of teaching Spanish and Portuguese classes both in Chile and in Brazil, I took the challenge of organizing and structuring a company where I could offer my students personalized and efficient courses. In addition, translation services that rest on complete confidentiality and commitment are offered. Based on this context, Language Center EP (English/Portuguese) was born. All of our students have study programs designed to achieve their goals using a communicative and interactive methodology (with technology use in the classroom). These customized activities directed to the student’s reality always reach their goals. “

MARCOS ATENAS
Spanish Teacher and DELE examiner

Chileno, nacido en Santiago. Licenciado en letras hispánicas, Diplomado en
especialización en enseñanza de español como lengua extranjera, ambos de la
Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile, y examinador certificado DELE. Cuenta
con más de 5 años de experiencia en el área, gran parte de ella fuera de Chile, en
diferentes instituciones y para diversos públicos. “Siempre quise hacer algo, desde
la lingüística, que tuviera un impacto positivo y tangible en la vida de las personas.
Con esto en mente, decidí especializarme y dedicarme a la enseñanza de español
LE. Considero que la lengua es una herramienta para la comunicación y no un fin
en sí misma. Por este motivo, vivo el proceso de enseñanza como un desafío
constante por hacer que cada aprendiente tenga acceso a los recursos que
necesita y que los pueda usar para cumplir sus fines particulares. Así también,
agradezco y fomento el diálogo intercultural que nace del proceso del aprendizaje
de lengua extranjera. Este aspecto ofrece, cada día, nuevos horizontes por
descubrir y enriquece constante y permanentemente a quienes participan en el
intercambio.”
