About me

I received an MA Language and Literature in Education (Modern Foreign Languages) from the UCL Institute of Education (IOE), University of London.

I joined LSE in 1997 and teach Spanish language and society undergraduate degree options. I also co-ordinate Italian non-degree courses.

Prior to joining LSE I worked as a Spanish lecturer and visiting teacher at Imperial College, Regent’s College (European Business School), University of East London and the Cervantes Institute amongst other teaching institutions.

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.
