Julio FoppoliHi, this is Julio Foppoli here, author of LEARNING SPANISH THROUGH JOKES? – YOU GOTTA BE KIDDING ME! and a few other products out there.

I am a teacher of English as a Foreign Language as well as a teacher of Spanish as a Second / Foreign language. I have been teaching for over 24 years now with an objective in mind, to help students bridge the gap between languages in the shortest amount of time possible. I have worked in many private and public institutions in my home country, Argentina as well as in the United States since 2004.  And since 2003 I have been teaching Spanish live online at www.esaudio.net. I’ve worked with students from all over the world and I love it! It’s a been a very enriching and fascinating adventure for me (and hopefully for my students as well)

I have many different websites, each one to cater for different needs:

And PUPPETS ON FIRE, although this one has nothing to do with education. It’s a website that offers custom-video-productions using puppets  for businesses, online marketing, etc. You will see some of my work on this website, but most of the content her is educational. Here’s a sample of the work I do for businesses, in this case this video was created for an insurance company! 🙂


Why did I decide to create this website? Well, it’s simple. If you are here I’m sure you want to learn or improve your Spanish. But if you are like many other Spanish learners, sometimes, despite your best intentions to study hard, life gets in the way and ruins your best plans. That’s where www.spanishthroughjokes.com comes in.

Unlike most of my other programs, which are more serious in nature and systematic, and always push you to your limit to get measurable results fast, SPANISH THROUGH JOKES has a laidback approach. Its content can be used during a coffee break: If you have 3 minutes, you can work on one of its quick activities and not only learn something useful but also have a blast in the process. Simple as that! No rules, no deadlines, just learning Spanish through jokes, memes, funny videos, and anything else I might be tempted to throw in!

Well, I don’t know what else to tell you about myself. If you have any questions, just contact me and ask me!

Best of luck in your quest for learning this beautiful language! And remember, it’s not all about grammar, vocabulary, listening and deadlines. Just take a little break every day, have fun, and learn Spanish through jokes too!
