I'm a diploma-qualified teacher trainer with extensive experience in teaching English in Spain, Italy, France and the UK. After I obtained the DELTA in English language teaching at King's College London, I went on to work at one of the top language schools in the UK, where I featured in a teacher training DVD which accompanied the latest Longman edition of How to Teach English.
