Hi, my name is Linda Lopez and I am an experienced teacher of Modern Foreign Languages, having worked in the state sector for 30 years.
I love languages and the sense of achievement you get from seeing beginners gaining in confidence is fantastic.

I use as much Spanish as is feasible in class and my lessons are very interactive in nature.
