About Adriana



Welcome to my website. I hope to meet you soon in person (or online) so I can hear all about you! For now, I would like to introduce myself, so you know who is Ole! Academy. Feel free to contact me and discover who will be teaching you. 
My name is Adriana, I am Spanish (100% like the jamon iberico). I was born in Pamplona a small city in the north of Spain, surrounded by mountains and with a really interesting culture, full of traditions and popular festivities like San Fermines. This has had a big impact on me, causing me to develop a large passion for the Spanish language, culture, food, and nature. 

I studied biology at the University of Pamplona and a master's degree in education. Since this period I worked as a teacher and as a biological researcher in different places: Pamplona, Zaragoza, Barcelona, Malta, Denmark, and the Netherlands.


In 2016, I met the love of my life, a Dutchman from ‘s-Hertogenbosch. This made me decide to move to the Netherlands in 2017. No regrets until today. I not only love my husband, but I love the Netherlands and the Dutch people. They are straightforward and down-to-earth. Off-course I miss my family, the Spanish food and culture. But through teaching Spanish I keep my Spanish spirit very alive.

In the Netherlands, I started as an account manager and translator at an organic food company but I missed teaching, and the Spanish culture, because of that I decided I wanted to become a Spanish Teacher.  So back to school!  I started at the International well known Instituto Cervantes in Utrecht an educational program to become a Spanish teacher. I directly felt this was it for me. 

My international degree, varied educational programs, experience in education, international projects, and my passion for teaching and Spanish roots are the perfect ingredients to get you to the Spanish level you desire in an efficient and fun way. Whether it is for holidays, culture, business, or social relations.

Because I love learning I am constantly improving my knowledge about teaching Spanish by following several pieces of training through the year. 

I am looking forward to meeting you. Please feel free to book your first free lesson, without any further obligations. If you have any questions, doubts, or suggestions? Please feel free to contact me. Use the contact field in the right corner
