ABOUT US

Practical, Relevant, Fun

Spanish for Veterinary Professionals was designed by a veterinarian and a teacher, currently based in Colombia. By combining language learning techniques and animal case-based content and vocabulary, we optimize your time and effort. We loved creating this course and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

She is a mountaineer, rock climber, ice climber and is currently a Spanish-learner in Colombia. She is the Senior Veterinarian for Animals Asia's Veterinary Welfare Training Program in China.

He has spent the past 20 plus years traveling around the world teaching English as second language, is a certified dive instructor and is currently the Head Teacher Trainer of TEFL Colombia as well as the founder of English Gamer Zone

Hi! I'm Eddie and, I am an online teacher. I have taught English and Spanish to students of different ages from around the world for many years. My lessons are encouraging and fun, always trying to make my students laugh and have a good time, motivating them to enjoy the class, feel free to speak, and, see learning as something interesting. I am patient, engaging, and, passionate about helping my students achieve their goals in a comfortable environment. I love sports, music, and watching movies. I also love traveling and of course, I love teaching.

Hi, my name is Daniela Echavarria and I'm a language teacher and translator with over 5 years of experience. I was born in Santa Marta, and currently, I live in the same beautiful city in Colombia. Growing up, I was fortunate to be surrounded by artists, teachers, and militaries, which helped me develop a passion for teaching and sharing knowledge with others. Besides teaching, I enjoy hiking and reading, and it's not uncommon for me to combine the two activities. In my free time, you can find me exploring new hiking trails and reading my favorite books with a cup of coffee. But my biggest joy is my furry companion, a 13-year-old mutt, Chandys, who I adopted as a sick baby. Despite his health challenges, I'm happy to have him in my life, and he's the best furry friend I could ask for. In addition to teaching, I also do translations for manuals, which has been an exciting and challenging experience. I love helping people communicate and break down language barriers.

Gin being standoffish

El Señor Gin, our Quality Control Officer, was a sad stray kitten in China when adopted by Mandala in 2013 and now watches over us from wherever kitties go when they pass from our world. 

 

He traveled to 4 countries and enjoyed being able to boss us around to maintain our high standard.

Gindles still judges everyone and makes sure our Spanish courses are purrfect, o si no, nos mira con su cara de desaprobación.
