I have always loved languages, being taught my first (French) at pre-prep school age 4. Then followed Latin and subsequently Spanish and Italian. My knowledge and passion for languages has led me to live all over the world following the completion of my Master’s degree at the University of St Andrews in Italian and Spanish. I can now add conversational Mandarin to the list having lived in Shanghai for four years. I am English, and I am therefore hoping to destroy the stereotype us Brits have of speaking English loudly when on holiday (expecting to be understood) by inspiring the next generation to learn many languages by way of interactive, fun and inspiring lessons here at Westbourne House!
