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

LSE is a centre for the study of the social sciences and this is reflected in its Language Centre.

Our courses focus on language and society, encouraging you to learn how to use language in the contexts you would like to live, study and work in. We teach people to speak languages, but also teach about language (socio-linguistics and intercultural communication) and offer a range of courses on literature and society. 

We offer English for Academic Purposes programmes, BSc programmes a range of undergraduate degree courses that can be taken as part of a degree and a range of language options that can be taken outside of a degree programme. All programmes and courses relate language study and support to the fields of interest of social science students.
