About me

My background is in teaching English as a foreign language. After graduating I taught English in Granada, Andalucía for 9 years before returning to work in London. I have worked at the Instituto Cervantes, SOAS and since 2008 in teaching and learning support at LSE.

My undergraduate degree is in Modern Languages and Political Studies and I have an MA in Lifelong Learning from the UCL Institute of Education (IOE). I have two very diverse interests: technology for language teaching and learning; improvisation techniques for language teaching and learning.

About the Language Centre

The Language Centre here at the London School of Economics reflects the specialist nature of the School itself, namely, a world class institution where the quality of teaching and research is paramount.

LSE is not just a multi-national university but also a multi-lingual one.

We offer English for Academic Purposes programmes, undergraduate degree courses and a range of language options that you can take outside of your main degree programme. All programmes and courses relate language study and support to the fields of interest of social science students.

The Language Centre is part of LSE’s Academic and Professional Development Division.
