Author name: Audrey Kratovil

My name is Audrey, or as my madrileño husband, D., has always called me, "españolita" because of my love for all things Spain. I grew up in the Washington, DC area in a monolingual English-speaking home. I started studying Spanish at the age of 12, and from day one I fell in love with it. I eventually earned a B.A. in Spanish from Georgetown University, during which time I spent a year studying in Madrid, where I met my husband. I later earned an M.A. in Linguistics, with a focus on second language acquisition, also from Georgetown. I’m a Nationally Board Certified English teacher and spent nearly eight years teaching English as a Second Language and later English literature at a large urban high school in Virginia. I left my job in June 2014 to stay at home with my now one-and-a-half old daughter, E., with whom I speak exclusively in Spanish. My blog chronicles my adventures in bilingual parenting. I invite you to join my family in language learning, language teaching, language growing, and language loving, all…¡sobre la marcha!
