What do you like the most about working with children?

What I like the most working with children is to be able to show them the beauty of learning a new language, but not only the language itself but everything that comes with it. I love to show them what the culture, traditions, people, food, etc is like. I believe that teaching something they can relate to and find it interesting will make their learning more enjoyable and fun

Have you got any hobbies?

I love doing outdoors activities such as running, cycling, hiking, swimming, etc. I also love spending time with friends and family. I believe that by doing the things you love to do is the key to maintain a healthy and happy life.

Which Kids&Us character can you identify the most?

I identify myself with Pam and Paul. These twins remind me of my siblings and I as kids daydreaming about adventures and other cultures. Now, as an adult I can still say I’m a dreamer but I just don’t imagine adventures, I go on adventures!

Which is your favourite English word?

My favourite English word is courage because it takes courage to grow up and become who you really are in life. Remember, success is not the final stage in life, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.

If you were an animal, what would you be?

If I were an animal or insect in my case I would be a butterfly. These beautiful and colourful insects go through a life cycle and each stage is different and has a different goal just like our lives do.

Which is your favourite city?

I have travelled to many different cities and wouldn’t be able to point at one as my favourite one. However, I would always remember the first city I visited outside my country, Medellin in Colombia. Medellin was the first city in which I discovered a whole new different culture than mine. I have seen more cultures after that but I would never forget that first time I discovered that our world is a melting pot.

Aina Pizà

Aina es natural de Palma y es una chica dinámica, responsable y ambiciosa en el ámbito profesional. Este curso será su segundo año como teacher y su primero como Coordinadora de la etapa Kids. Está graduada en Educación Primaria, especializada en Lengua Extranjera.

¿Queréis saber algo más de ella?

Ha estado haciendo prácticas en dos colegios de Palma, completamente distintos, para poder tratar y aprender de todas las situaciones y problemas surgidos. A raíz de haber vivido una temporada en Irlanda se dio cuenta de que su mayor aspiración es dominar la lengua inglesa tanto como el castellano o el catalán, lanzándose así a la especialización de inglés.

What do you like the most about working with children?

I think what I really like the most is their reactions when they find a solution for a problem which they could not sort out the class before. The gratitude they show when I help with something is also amazing for me, they make me feel really valued and appreciated.

Have you got any hobbies?

A few ones! Depending on the weather and season, I love practising different sports such as Stand Up Paddle, kayaking, snorkelling… but what I enjoy the most is hiking in our Serra de Tramuntana, because I love nature. A part from sport, my other important hobby is healthy cooking, and in the near future I want to study some child nutrition course.

Which Kids&Us character can you identify the most?

I totally identify with Marcia because she lives daily situations which she considers totally fantastic. I love her way of seeing life!

Which is your favourite English word?

My favourite word is “Wonder”. The reason is quite silly, because it is when you feel admiration or curiosity about something, and when I think in this word a quote arises in my mind: “not all who wonder are lost”.

If you were an animal, what would you be?

It is a difficult question, but I think I would be a bird just to feel the feeling of flying and the freedom to go wherever you want.

Which is your favourite city?

Among all the cities that I have visited, I have to choose New York. It is a storm of changes and emotions: you can feel the stress in the subway or in Wall Street and, suddenly, feel the peace and the calm that Central Park offers you. Moreover, you have whatever you want at the moment you want: meals from all the countries around the world, you can enjoy the best places of culture or visit countless famous scenarios… and a long etcetera!

What do you like the most about working with children? 

What I like the most about working with children is to be able to show them the beauty of learning a new language and possibility to communicate with the people from all over the world. Not only is the language itself, but everything that comes with it important. I love to show them the culture, traditions, people, and food as well.

I identify myself with Pam and Paul.  They are eager to know more about the world around them and they are full of energy to accomplish that mission.

Which is your favourite English word?

My favourite English word is patience because it takes patience to grow up and become who you really are in life. With patience in life you can achieve everything. “Haste makes waste” British people use to say. When speaking about learning, well it is a process, so we should take time for it and have PATIENCE.

If you were an animal, what would you be?

If I were an animal or bird in my case I would be an eagle. These beautiful birds are a living example of strength, freedom and transcendence.

Which is your favourite city?

If I have to choose just one, it would be of course my hometown, Trebinje. Trebinje is a charming combination of Turkish and Austro-hungarian period of antique and modern. It is a small touristic town close to the Adriatic Sea and the different mountains as well. It is one of those towns that have a soul, and there is always something special that simply drags you back to visit it again.

What do you like the most about working with children?

The thing I like the most about working with children is to see their progression during each activity. I think it is really important to find what moves the child to learn, we have to find their motivation and enjoy the adventure of learning with them. If the children are having fun, so will I!

Have you got any hobbies?

Of course! I love to run. It is one of my passions. I also like playing instruments like the guitar or the piano. Anything creative is likely to become one of my hobbies!

Which Kids&Us character can you identify the most?

I identify with Alex, because I also want to help when someone is in trouble, travelling and I really like animals.

Which is your favourite English word?

I would say it is “blue”, and here’s why. It may seem just the name of a very beautiful colour, but it can change meaning if you look at the whole picture, as it can be also the definition of sadness. Always look at the whole picture before judging!

If you were an animal, what would you be?

I love all kind of animals, but if I had to choose one, I would be a bee. They can fly, produce honey, work in team and they are very important for the whole world!

Which is your favourite city?

Salamanca. No doubts. It has great weather, very beautiful buildings and the history around them is fascinating. It may have influenced me the fact that all my relatives are from there, but I think I would have chosen it anyways.

What do you like the most about working with children?

The thing I like the most about children is their enthusiasm. Since they are babies they enjoy everything in a different way than adults, and I think that’s beautiful. Besides, when you teach them, the enthusiasm comes to you, even though you are not a child, because they inspire you to be a better person and, of course, a good teacher.

Have you got any hobbies?

I love reading since I can remember, taking a book and getting myself in it. I also enjoy going out with my friends, travelling as much as I can and discovering new things and places. What I also love is watching movies and English shows, I think that’s a very good way of learning English and improving your level.

Which Kids&Us character can you identify the most?

Although I love Linda’s sweetness and innocence, I think the characters I identify with the most are Ben&Brenda. First of all because I love superheroes and when I was a child I wanted to be one of them. Besides, I am always taking care of the good ones and protecting them from the “villains”.

Which is your favourite English word?

My favourite English word is “random” because it makes me remember that everything happens in a random way, without previous warning sometimes, and you are the one that have to decide whether to take it or change it, because almost everything can be changed for something better.

If you were an animal, what would you be?

My answer is so simple: I would love to be a dog, stay in a good house with a great family taking care of me and giving me lots of love.

Which is your favourite city?

I love everything about Mallorca and its cities and villages, but my favourite city in the world is London. I visited it two times but I fell in love the first one already. I would love to live there maybe for some years and learning even more about the city.

I identify myself with Emma, the way she learns about common situations is so enthusiastic!

My favourite English word is “Entertainment”. It was so difficult to pronounce at first, but when I focus on the meaning I just can think of funny things.

If you were an animal, what would you be?

I have no doubt, I would be a dog! I love dogs and I think the affection they receive from their owners it’s just the best feeling in the world.

Which is your favourite city?

I have travelled a lot around the world, but if I had to choose one I would say Reykjavik. It seems a boring and freezing city at first, but when you get to see all the surroundings at winter you will fall in love with it.
