Ander is the COO of SammTalk, born in Basque Country but based in Oslo. He studied Translation and a MA in Linguistics and Spanish Teaching as a Foreign Language. He teaches Spanish at a Norwegian high school as well as to adults. He is very keen on language acquisition, memory and motivation in teenagers as a key for the language learning process. Ander’s native language is Spanish, but his daily languages are English and Norwegian.
We see the mission of our startup, plus Taylor’s research and Ander’s work as a teacher, as a part of broader efforts to enhance the growing up experiences of children and young people in the communities where we live. So the opportunity to connect with others working in the same sphere just made sense, and that’s why we applied for EYA.
We’re really pleased to have been selected as a winner in the Connecting Cultures category and look forward to congratulating, and bonding with, the other winners at the EYA Festival in Graz."
