    Hello, my name is Alba Casé and this is my first year in Kids&Us. Although I’ve lived in Callús all my life, my family has always had a connection with an American family, they used to come every summer to our house since I was little, therefore I learnt English by natural process. Last year I decided to go study 12th grade there and stay at their house. I went to Thomas High School in Webster, a town in upper New York state and it turned out to be an amazing experience! Currently I am studying a degree in Digital Business, Design and Innovation in La Salle URL (Barcelona). My hobbies are traveling and sports, I used to play handball and I coached little kids a couple of years ago. I loved coaching kids so I can’t wait to open my horizons and start teaching!

This is my fifth year working as an English teacher and my third school year at Kids&Us. It is also my first year working at the Kids&Us Head Office.

    Hi there! My name is Alexandra. I was originally born and raised in Romania, however what’s really running through my veins is Hungarian blood.

I got my degree in Translation and Interpreting from Pompeu Fabra University (English & German).

What I most like doing in my free time is running, going to the gym and driving while listening to my favourite music.
