I am currently enjoying working as an in-house language trainer, travel writer and translator from Spanish and Italian. I have a BA Honours degree in Language and Literature from University College, London, and a Master’s degree in Education and Applied Linguistics. I maintain an interest in my field by studying regional dialects and the comparative development of Romance languages. I am involved in the design of my own practical, non-grammar based, authentic materials as a supplement to general language courses. In my free time I prepare job seekers for job interviews.
