Antonella Abatilli
Teacher of Spanish

Hi, my name is Antonella, and I teach Spanish on Monday and Wednesday evenings.

I speak Spanish during the lessons, but don’t worry I will help you to understand me with photographs, gestures or drawings. You will be able to communicate in Spanish from the first lesson and gradually build your vocabulary based on practical context. My lessons are communicative and practical; the idea is that you learn Spanish in everyday context and speak as much as possible!

Before moving to Bristol I lived eight years in Valencia (Spain) where I did my first degree and where my relatives live now. I did my teacher qualification at IH in London. I really enjoy teaching and the opportunity to meet and work with new students. I am also studying at the University of Bristol where I have the chance to meet people from all over the world. I love living in Bristol because is a lively city that offers many cultural events. I like going to the cinema, theatre, music concerts and I also love playing hockey. When there is a chance to take time off, I love to travel to know new places and meet people.
