Introducing Ruben Bornez Fernandez – our Spanish Language Assistant

Rubén comes from Ciudad Real, in central Spain, where he recently obtained a degree in English Studies and Literature. Rubén hopes to become a language teacher in the future and will start a Masters Degree in Teaching after his stay in Australia. Over the past few years, Rubén acquired valuable teaching experience thanks to internships in the USA and Ireland, where he worked as a Spanish Assistant in universities. Rubén also has some experience with younger children and teenagers, as he worked as an au pair in England and as an English Tutor and football coach in summer camps. Rubén has recently completed a 150-hour course in teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language, including a brief internship, and is excited to put himself to the test with Australian students.  It is a dream of his to teach English to students as education and languages is a passion of his.

He is currently working with our Year 9 APEX students studying Spanish for the first time, as well as the IB Diploma Spanish students.  He can also been seen out on the football pitch as Assistant coach for our interschool football (soccer) teams.


We look forward to welcoming Ruben to our College for the semester and using his expertise in our language classrooms.
