Think & love in Spanish 🖤


Un idioma distinto es una visión diferente de la vida.

My name is Gala, founder of Notes by Gala, e-learning website to learn and love Spanish. I was born in Madrid, Spain, where I grew up, studied Art History at University, fell in love, did my master in Spanish Editing, worked in a Museum… Until 2014, when I said bye to the city and moved to the Netherlands, where I live now.

My life has always been like a roller coaster, full of new experiences and many oportunities to learn. I lived in London for some time, started a publishing house in Madrid, worked in Marketing in Amsterdam… but I always knew that teaching Spanish and starting my own company was something for me.

Teaching Spanish is not only about teaching a language, it also means teaching a way of life, a culture, it is like opening a new door to my students. And this is something that I love about my work. Apart from Spanish, I love writing, travelling and reading, spending time with my family and friends, eating out, learning new things, going to museums… Enjoying life!


As a Spanish teacher, I am energetic, passionate and patient. I enjoy talking to my students and encouraging them to give their opinions and express their own ideas in Spanish. My classes are well organized and structured, and always include a bit of speaking, grammar, new vocabulary and tons of positivity and enthusiasm.

After years teaching Spanish, I have shared many experiences with my students. I have listened to their amazing stories and learnt a lot from them. I admire their determination and hard work, and I feel very proud of being part of their journey of discovery. Getting in touch with so many amazing people around the world is a great privilege.
