Bio

I have been studying French and Spanish since I was a teenager and have used both languages extensively during a thirty-year international business career.

Born and raised in southern England, it was quite normal for kids to start learning the language of our neighbours across the English Channel at a fairly young age, but my "baptism of fire" happened when I was thirteen years old and took part in a three-week student exchange program, when I found myself in Aix-en-Provence.

I have been studying French and Spanish since I was a teenager and have used both languages extensively during a thirty-year international business career.

Born and raised in southern England, it was quite normal for kids to start learning the language of our neighbours across the English Channel at a fairly young age, but my "baptism of fire" happened when I was thirteen years old and took part in a three-week student exchange program, when I found myself in Aix-en-Provence. At this juncture my spoken French was pretty rudimentary, but substantially more accomplished than the English of any of my host family. So I made astonishing progress - because I had to!

Encouraged by this embryonic achievement, I decided to take up Spanish in school and was delighted to discover that it is a less complicated language than French - and SO much easier to pronounce.

Later on I was fortunate to be accepted into St.Catherine's College, Oxford, where I earned my B.A.(Honours) in Modern Languages.

During my business career, I have worked with and coached French and Spanish-speaking bosses, colleagues, subordinates and clients in France, Switzerland, Spain, Latin America and the French Caribbean, and also lived in Spain for ten years. (Twelve years living in Miami, Florida was also a great opportunity to practice my Spanish.)

So, my knowledge of both French and Spanish is both vernacular and academic, and I hope to be able to help you to enjoy learning either or both of these rich languages and their great literature.
