Nuria Sabadell
Local Program Coordinator

For the last six years, Nuria Sabadell has been the program coordinator in Spain. Her energy, intelligence, and contacts not just Gijón but in all of Spain have added immeasurably to our programs. The Sabadell family accounts for the terrific friends and families that we enjoy in Gijón.

Nuria has worked as an entrepreneur and administrative assistant for many years.  She has also participated in organizing public relations for events, concerts and different presentations. This has led her to develop great capabilities in conflict resolution and to get to know her country and customs.  

She is now a Social Worker, where she leads home visits to the elderly-- including helping take care of her mother at home.  She is also a local volunteer for the Red Cross International and supports a local Animal Shelter.

Her greatest passions include traveling and getting to know other cultures.  She has traveled to Mexico to learn the Rassias Method in depth and she is convinced that there is a "before" and an "after" in language acquisition through this methodology.
