Madhulika Karwa

Teacher of Spanish

Passionate about the language, Madhulika has been teaching Spanish at BIS for over 7 years now for the IBDP. Last year the school offered Spanish B SL for the first time and she has taken up the responsibility for the course. Her previous years spent working at the Consulate General of Spain in Mumbai reinforced her love for the language and the Hispanic culture.

She has an international diploma in Spanish as a foreign language (DELE C1 – Nivel superior) from the University of Cervantes, Spain. In addition she has done several courses in association with the Hispanic Horizons under the guidance of Blanca Dean, co founder and director of the institute. She has attended the IBDP category 1 workshop for Spanish ab initio teachers at Oberoi International School in February 2015.

After graduating from Sydenham College of Commerce and Economics she went on to do a Diploma in Social Communications Media (SCM) from the Sophia Polytechnic, Mumbai. She then joined TV18-CNBC as a TV journalist for the next few years with the channel Star Plus, scripting, shooting and editing short stories for The Amul India Show. These varied experiences have enriched her teaching skills where she likes to bring in elements from these different worlds into her classroom.

She now loves her role as a teacher and hopes pass on this passion to her students and make them life long learns just like herself.
