Why study with a native teacher?
There are key points to be observed when choosing a teacher to learn a new language. Experience, tranquility, patience and didactic teaching in class must be taken into account. These factors make the student feel confident in the choice of teacher that will guide their learning.
If you have a native teacher it will be even better, as there are many points related to culture, pronunciation among others, that only a native teacher can easily explain. In addition, they have a greater control over the use of language and the use of their personal skills to communicate effectively.

English for Kids and Teens
Humans begin to learn from birth. During the first years of life the brain reaches its maximum maturation potential, and for this reason it must be used to stimulate it from a very early age. Learning a second or third language at an early age will promote the development of the child or adolescent, stimulating their motor, social and intellectual formation.
Children. At Mi Profe Nativo we know how important it is to work with children, therefore our method was designed so that they learn, but also have fun. In this way you learn by playing, singing, listening to stories, using audiovisuals, coloring, sharing, following rules, among others.
Teenagers. The English course for teenagers focuses on issues that are directly related to age and topics of interest. Learning English not only allows the adolescent to excel in academic studies, but also in everyday activities. For example, with the use of the internet, adolescents have access to endless information. This facilitates interaction with other cultures (music, movies, books). Here is the time when learning English can be key to assimilating such information.
Recommended material: dictated by the professor.
This course was designed for people who want to improve their English in a fast and efficient manner. Whether your English is good but you feel out of practice, you are starting from scratch or you have years of studying without being able to dedicate fully.
