My name is Natalia Lyes, and I am the founder of Pasitos Spanish for your Children. I am a native Spanish speaker, originally from Ecuador, but I’ve been living in the UK for the past 23 years. I created Pasitos in 2013 as a necessity to teach my own children. Very soon I found myself doing a Master's degree in the Univerity of Barcelona. I wanted to learn a better method and teach Spanish to all the children in my community.

I have lots of experience working with children of all ages. I have two young children of my own and we live in a bilingual household. I was in charge of running La Casita for 3 years, this is the only stay-and-play group for Spanish-speaking mums and children in Bristol.

I was a radio producer and presenter in the only Spanish language radio show in Bristol 'La Ventana Latina' at BCFM.

I have helped children to prepared for their GCSE Spanish examinations.
