About Mariel:

Hola che! I’m a passionate traveler and after spending 4 years visiting different countries and cultures about the world as a digital nomad, I’d say I’m an Argentine but also a citizen of the world. I love discovering new cultures in very authentic ways, always trying to see through local people’s eyes.

Apart from learning about other people’s cultures, I love teaching about my own. Argentine culture is quite interesting as it actually brings together many cultures. I really love to teach Spanish, especially the Argentine dialect, and I’ve been doing it for some years, that’s why I decided to start my own podcast and academy.
