What you get: someone highly qualified and experienced in both translation and education. Twenty years teaching adults and young adults, and an MA in Translation with Distinction.

Language coaching services

Presenting at an international conference or attending an international fair? Need an injection of language confidence? Perhaps you want some language advice or would love to practise your presentation or pitch on me so I can advice you on pronunciation, intonation and even organisation? That’s what I’m here for!

I can particularly help with Spanish if you are a non-native speaker but also with English if you are a Spanish speaker as I’ve lived in the UK for twenty years. With twenty years Spanish teaching experience, I’ve helped tons of people of all backgrounds and ages with pronunciation, grammar and cultural insight.

I can also proofread your conference papers or slides if you’re a researcher presenting in a Spanish-speaking country.

Testimonials

Pili was one of the greatest influence on my language learning process for Spanish. With her help, I completed three years of Spanish in two which allowed me to study BA Spanish with Portuguese at university one year earlier than expected. Her calm yet attentive approach and in-depth knowledge of her own country and region’s culture and society drove myself and the rest of my class to success. Five years later I’m now a qualified Spanish and Portuguese freelance translator and interpreter. (Matthew, MC Linguistic Services)

I got an A for Spanish which I’m thrilled about so thank you so much for all the help you gave me because it made a huge difference!! I’m actually now considering studying Spanish at university which is amazing!” (student now majoring in Spanish)

This exercise is magnificent. The text flows like a stream in the woods. It’s simple, natural, clear… Fantastic! And the contextualisations are very well thought out. (Rosa Llopis, Trágora Formación)
