I am from Uruguay but have learned English since I was a toddler. My level is basically that of a native speaker, and I worked as an English teacher for 9 years while at University, preparing students for Cambridge ESOL examinations. I am an Architect, and next September I am starting my MSc in Public and Urban Policy at the University of Glasgow, so I will be living in Glasgow for a year. I have recently taken CAE again, as the certificates I had were from before I started working as a teacher and the University required a recent one, getting an overall score of 207/210.
Although I had thorough formal English education throughout my life always with outstanding results, I feel that since starting to use it for my own specific purposes (academic, related to my field of study) I have gained a new and more native-like use of the language: so I would recommend anyone wanting to improve their level to bring topics, videos, articles, etc they are interested in, that are in English, to gain specific language and feel more motivated.
I am more interested in teaching English. But If anyone required a Spanish teacher, I am guessing it would be mostly for basic use such as tourism. So I would try to use everyday situations, based on what students require. I could also arrange meetings with native speakers from Latin America who are studying at UofG, with whom I can easily connect.
Written Spanish is harder, because of accentuation rules and grammar. But apart from that, I understand that phonetics, the alphabet, and the general logic of language structure can be easily extrapolated from English to Spanish.
