"My alma mater gave me a lot»
Tatiana Koneva graduated from the Faculty of Philology of PSTGU. Having gained teaching experience at the Russian State University for the Humanities and PSTGU, now she lives and works in Spain.
Now I am in the city of Malaga in the south of Spain, wh ere I have been living for the last three years.
I came here thanks to my higher education. I graduated fr om the Faculty of Philology of PSTGU in 2012. It was a specialty, 5 years of study. My first language was Spanish, the second was French. We were taught both languages from scratch. When I graduated from university, French was at the B2 level. After coming to Spain, it helped me determine my professional future. I passed the exam for the C1 certificate in French here after a little learning and was able to enter the magistracy, as well as undergo pedagogical training as a French teacher. Of course, my alma mater gave me a lot. First of all, the level of teaching, as well as visits to Spain, wh ere I got acquainted with the culture of the country. At the university, we had constant communication with native speakers invited by teachers. They gave lectures and participated in conferences, and we accompanied them around Moscow. All this prepared me for what I am doing now.
At the moment I am teaching French to Spanish people in a course. I went to graduate school here to teach French in middle and high school. I hope that from next year I will be able to work as a French teacher at school, perhaps even at the university. It hasn't been decided yet. I always remember with joy my years of study and see how well I have been trained now in order to grow professionally in the future.
