How long have you been teaching for and how long for Cactus?

I have been teaching for four years now and I started working as a Spanish teacher in Leeds for Cactus two years ago. I teach Spanish at the Cactus centre in Leeds.

How long have you been living in the UK?

I have been in total 8 years in this lovely country, first in London and now in Leeds, and I love both cities!

Where were you born?

Like genius painter Picasso, and the actor Antonio Banderas, I was born in beautiful Málaga.

What is your degree and teaching experience?

I am a qualified Spanish teacher with a bachelors degree in English Literature, I have been teaching in schools and now I´m exploring the adult education sector.

Have you ever worked in another field?

I have worked in different sectors: retail, office, marketing

What was your best teaching experience?

The first time one of my students (a 12 years old girl) smiled at me me and said “that was very helpful, thank you” after a one-to-one reinforcement lesson.

What is your favourite book and why?

Mmm, it´s very hard to pick just one! I´d say “The Never ending Story” because it doesn´t matter how many times you read it and at what age, you can find something new everytime.

Do you have any specific language learning tips?

I think you can always add some bits of fun to make the lesson easier to learn and remember!


Hope to see you on my course!
¡Hasta la vista!
