Hi I am Theresa from Germany 😊

Living in Mexico for about 2 years now has not only taught me Spanish but so much more about the beautiful culture and country that I can call my home for now. I am always curious to learn a new language. Therefore helping others to open their world by learning new languages is a beautiful aspect of my work at Zaloa.
