Meet Fabiana: Sharing her Pasión with the GLN

Fabiana is one of the gifted and amazing volunteer language teachers at GLN, and this is her story:

“Any student in my Nearly Native Spanish class can tell you where I am from– Venezuela! I grew up in Caracas, the bustling, dangerous, valley-city that is the capital of Venezuela. I love everything about the country: the music, the dancing, the geography, the people and of course, the language. I love sharing my love for Spanish and all things Latin and Venezuelan with my students. I have been teaching at GLN since 2007 and often run into former students in DC (some of them have become my good friends). It is infinitely rewarding to know that there are people walking around DC that speak Spanish just a little bit better because of GLN and volunteer teachers like me. One of the things I most enjoy teaching to students is beautiful Spanish words. Llover, merienda, mariposa and alabanza are some of my favorites.”
