My first degree was in history and politics and thirty-five years later l took a Modern Languages degree in Spanish and German. I now speak basic Italian and some French. I have travelled to over 40 countries and lived in German-speaking Europe and in Spanish America and in Spain.
I have taught history and maths, but l decided after witnessing a particularly terrible Spanish lesson for my secondary school students that l maybe could make a better job of teaching languages that the teacher that l observed. So l went back to basics and learnt two languages from the bottom up.. Then went back university to do a Modern Languages degree.
To brush up on my classroom teaching skills l did a Level Three Teaching Assistant Diploma in 2011 after l returned from individual tutoring in Vienna. Where l taught English and Spanish. Previously l had taught English and German in Spain. The level three course involved ten weeks of classroom teaching practice as part of the qualification. It was a great refresher and informs my tutoring, although l have returned to the individual rather than classroom teaching.
I live in central Birmingham and l am a cyclist...In 2005 l cycled a thousand odd miles from Stockholm to Vienna to take up a teaching post in a military school and technical college. I use a bicycle in conjunction with the train to stay fit.
