My name is Melina Helm. I have been able to see through different WINDOWS from early stages of my life on…My dream has always been to COMMUNICATE with people around the world without BARRIERS, without LIMITS, without BORDERS…HEART to HEART….SOUL to SOUL… Now I speak 7 languages and I’m planning to learn more…
Growing up as a bilingual child isn’t always as cool as many people think…You feel DIFFERENT, you are a LOCAL and a STRANGER at the same time…
As a little girl, my HOME was a small town in the Spanish Pyrenees, where my parents -coming from Germany- moved in the late 80s. Mountains, adventure, being outdoors have always been a part of my life… but I often felt as a bird inside a cage, waiting for someone to open the window that would have taken me into the outside world…

BARCELONA was my BABEL TOWER… just sitting in the train to university, I could listen to an exotic variety of languages…The extraordinary people I met from around the world in this city ignited my passion to learn the many languages of our world… No universal language can bring you as close to a CULTURE and its PEOPLE as the language of its specific community. I wanted to feel the FREEDOM to communicate with real people all over the world.

This has enabled me to create my own methods to transmit not only my linguistic knowledge but also my knowledge about “how to learn” to my students, so that they can set their own goals depending on their needs.
