Kathrin Achenbach

Spanish, Upper Level 3 and Middle School

Kathrin Achenbach was born and raised in Germany, and studied Romance languages and psychology at the University of Siegen. Her passion for language brought her to Madrid, Spain where she taught at the Inlingua International School of Languages. She has since worked as a teacher and translator in Buenos Aires and Barcelona and traveled extensively through Central America and the Iberian Peninsula. Kathrin has a special interest in applied linguistics and how a second language is effectively acquired, integrated and maintained.

At the heart of it all is the exploration of how people use language to express themselves, make connections, share knowledge and bridge diverse cultures and experience.

She is also the executive director of WEAVE Community, a local non-profit, which cultivates opportunities for honest conversations between diverse social, cultural and economic groups.
