About me

After many years as a senior lecturer in Spanish in the School of Languages and Applied Linguistics at the Open University, I  am now Director of Innovation and e-learning for an education company. I am passionate about helping people learn languages, so I run the website, where I offer free courses and resources for adult language learners.
