Biography

I have always loved languages. After finishing my degree in Spanish, I couldn’t wait to live abroad again, so that I could improve my languages further and find out more about the people and cultures I studied. I taught English as a Foreign Language both in France and Spain after graduating.  When I returned to the U.K., I enjoyed a successful career in international market research, but still kept studying Spanish, French and European Business to Master’s level.  I worked as a primary school teacher and languages co-ordinator before I joined the Primary Education Team in January 201
