Carmen Peña, is from the Dominican Republic and came to this country at the age of 20. She understands how hard it is to learn other languages especially when you are not young. She’s had some experience as a teacher, at the high school level – there she taught both Native and Non-Native Spanish speakers. But before Peña started teaching, she was able to experience one semester in Spain in order to improve her Spanish skills. Since she loves to travel and learn about different cultures, it allows her to understand and know the basics within the culture – in order to expand her knowledge. Carmen loves teaching and helping others who want to learn or continue learning another language.
