October 2017 - Noah Greenwald

With a great zest for learning and genuine interest in Latin American culture, Noah’s enthusiasm is contagious to all around him. An ecologist who is passionate about protecting endangered species, his desire to connect with the people he meets on trips to study the diverse species of Central and South America is central to his motivation to study Spanish. Having started at Tierra with private lessons together with his teenage son, Noah has progressed through our Beginner series and is now embarking on his intermediate studies with impressive dedication. It is a joy to observe Noah engage with the language so thoughtfully and we look forward to continuing to see him surpass his goals.

Name: Noah Greenwald
Occupation: Biologist
Time Studying at Tierra: 1 year and a half

1) Why are you studying Spanish?

"I love traveling in Latin America because of the culture, but also because I am an ecologist who works to protect endangered species and Central and South America have an incredible richness of species and habitats.  The more Spanish I have the more I will be able to learn from people who really know these environments."

2) What is your favorite part about your experience here at Tierra?

"The small class sizes and friendly environment make it a great place to learn Spanish."

3) Can you tell us of a time you have been able to use what you have learned studying here?

"This past July I traveled to Cartagena, Colombia--a very beautiful city where I was able to put my developing Spanish to work."

¡Felicidades Noah!
