Spanish

 
Corey Friedman

Corey Friedman

Hey there! I’m Corey, a lead tutor specializing in Spanish, and this is my third year working at the CWLT. As an 11-year student of Spanish, I can’t speak enough to the merits of learning foreign languages. In studying abroad in Madrid, Spain, I got to see first-hand how knowledge of a foreign language allows for a significantly higher degree of cultural connection. My experience of studying, thinking, and living in Hispanic contexts has broadened my horizons a thousandfold, inspiring me to be a lifelong learner of languages. Whether it’s been to look at an essay, study for a test, or just share a linguistic passion – I have always loved my experience with students at the center and warmly invite all Spanish learners to stop by!
