About Catherine Fortin


I’m a border girl from El Paso, Texas and my first words were agua and galleta.  We’re surrounded by Spanish, and even if you think you don’t know a word you’re happily mistaken. My mission is to give you some Spanish to speak every day that is fun and useful, the best stuff too: food, culture, and travel.

I taught Spanish for ten years to grades 5 to 8, and I taught in bilingual schools in New Mexico before that.  Now I teach Spanish to private groups and I tutor high school and college students too.

My business partner, Diane Farrug, and I e-publish Spanish and French lessons and activities through our entity foreignlanguagehouse.com.  We also offering consulting services to businesses and schools.
