Audiria is a online learning tool which, freely, offers methods
to ensure the comprension of a new language learning is the best possible.
1.- Who makes Audiria?
Audiria arises as an idea of two brothers from Málaga (VHSS & COSS)
with the aim of promoting the learning of the Spanish language and
culture worldwide. Two other people of the same family also participate
in the project (EHG from Burgos and CSL from Madrid). Currently all of
us live in Madrid.
The project is conceived as a non-profit activity in which all of us
employ our spare time and week-ends, since each one has his own
professional activity (VHSS is a Chemical Engineer, COSS is an
Electrical Engineer, EHG is a Biologist, and CSL is a Mechanical
Engineer). Moreover, VHSS colaborates with a language school
as a teacher of Spanish for foreigners.
In this picture you can see three of the four members of Audiria
(COSS, VHSS and EHG; CSL was taking the picture) in a working
night, in the following one all of us are there.
AL is from Connecticut in the USA. He began to teach himself Spanish several
years ago when he started working as a psychiatrist in a mental health center
that included some Spanish-speaking patients. He has found Audiria to be an
invaluable resource, and enjoys both learning from and contributing to this site.
