My name is Adrianna Coronado. I am the English Teaching Assistant for this school year and I would like to share some information about myself.
I am from Milwaukee, Wisconsin (USA) and I recently graduated from Mount Mary University in Milwaukee, with a degree in International Studies and History. Although I did not study education, I have plenty of experience working with both children and English learners. I have spent many years doing work with the two, such as translating at school conferences for parents, tutoring adults learning English as a second language, and I worked in child care for two years and have done volunteer work in schools for many years.
In my free time, I enjoy dance, soccer, reading, and traveling. So far, I have been to Mexico, Spain, France, Italy, Argentina, Uruguay, and Puerto Rico. During my time here in Germany, I hope to see more of this country, as well as other parts of Europe.
Although I am from the United States, my family is from Mexico and consequently, I speak both English and Spanish fluently; and in high school, I studied Latin for four years as my foreign language. It is because of this that I understand how frustrating it can be navigating multiple languages and the challenges that come with learning a new language. I hope to use my own experiences in learning languages to help my students in their journey to learning the English language.
