About me

I taught Spanish in Higher Education for nine years before moving into Teaching and Learning Support. Currently I am particularly interested in the integration of Theatre Improvisation techniques in the language classroom. I am researching how 'Improv' can be used as a platform to foster a variety of skills with various degrees of relevance to language learning, from spontaneity to presentation skills. I am also interested in the use of technology for language teaching and learning.

I have a BA in English studies from Valladolid University and an MA in Management of Language Learning from the University of Greenwich.

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.

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