CREATING BILINGUAL MINDS
Languages have always been part of my life. I call Spanish the language of my heart, and English the cultural vision of the world. Transmitting and translating is what I have done naturally. This common thread that runs through almost all my work decisions.
Languages must above all, in my eyes, are source of fun and openness to new possibilities. I mix games, singing, physical movements and manual activities...because each person has a special way of learning. The work of a Translator is not just a matter of words: for me it's about making a whole culture understandable.
