José holds a degree in Education, two Master’s degrees (in Applied Linguistics in teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language and Spanish language teacher training), and a Doctorate in Business Management with a specialisation in online Spanish language teaching. He has worked as a Foreign Language teacher more than fifteen years in five different countries. He has an extensive experience in both living and teaching in foreign countries. He has travelled much of the world participating in conferences, congresses, and workshops. For the past ten years and before coming to CIS, José worked at the City University of Seattle in Bratislava as a Spanish teacher.
