About me

I have been teaching languages in London for a good few years now from Bromley to Greenwich to Wandsworth. Now I am in the East End. I have also worked as a Lead Practitioner for Languages for the Specialist Schools and Academies Trust through which I met many inspirational teachers of languages. I have also been lucky to be involved in the writing of some textbooks and I currently contribute online resources to Pearson.

You will see that most of the things I post are in Spanish as this is what I teach – no French at all on my timetable. I will endeavour to redress the balance whenever I can. Nevertheless, the ideas can be adapted in some cases to other languages.

I am really interested in the use of technology and incorporating cultural understanding into lessons as well as finding new contexts for presenting language.

A request to everyone using the resources posted – if you repost any of the material could you please acknowledge where you found it? THANKS!

FINALLY, if you need to get in touch with me, just write a comment on any of the posts + this will share your email with me and I will get back to you.
