Academic Director – Spanish Instructor – Co-Founder
Raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Julieta has always had a passion for history, politics, and languages. While earning a degree in Political Science from the University of Buenos Aires, she began to study languages in order to read texts in their original form. With Spanish as her mother language, she continues to refine her English and Portuguese, and independently studies French, Italian, and German. Following her passion, she established JMC Languages in Buenos Aires as a full service language institute, which she operated for four years before moving to Boise. Julieta is constantly refining the Spanish curriculum and the six course books she recently completed for use in Spanish classes at CR Languages. She enjoys Brazilian music, heated political discussions, and making students laugh at/with her in class.

Gine (pronounced with the ‘g’ as in ‘gold’) was born and raised in Bavaria, in southern Germany. With a broad work history, ranging from a legal secretary to an aerobic instructor, Gine brings insight and energy into the classroom that is unmatched. One of her favorite aspects of life in Germany is learning the history behind each and every castle, church, and home, including in her hometown, Weiden, which was founded over 900 years ago. Gine loves German culture and is thrilled at the opportunity to share it with students. When not in class, she enjoys practicing the accordion, skiing, camping, and playing Wii with her family.
What some of Gine’s students are saying:
“Gine is responsive to students’ needs while maintaining the forward momentum of the class. She puts a lot of time into responding to assignments and tests. Best of all, taking German with Gine is FUN.” – Angie
“Gine is wonderful to work with. I always leave the class thinking that it was worth my time and money and that I have learned some additional German.” – Heidi
“I have been working with CR Languages for the German language for some time, and it has been great! I have not had an easy time, but that is what I am there for – to get more fluent. Believe me, this project with Gine works – even with me - so I highly recommend it!” – Paul
