Miguel, It seems a great idea that you and Maria play a dual role in the process of your and her own learning -being a teacher and being a student.
It may help if you could describe a particular instance in which Maria helps you with Spanish and a particular event in which you help Maria with the computer game. For example, it is unclear to me whether Maria helps you with Spanish as both of you play a computer game or whether she helps you in other circumstances (playing non-computer games, informal conversations, etc.).
Providing enough information about how you and Maria help each other makes it easier for people to understand whether learning can be seen as collaborative, child run approach or other(s) approach to teaching and learning.
