The life and language of Spain, and more …


Having retired from Spanish language teaching, I have created this blog to pull together many of the articles, books and language tips that I have built up over the years.  I have converted many of my teaching products into eBooks that can be accessed easily and cheaply on my Amazon Author page where you can also find out a bit more about me.

With retirement comes the opportunity to branch out into other areas of interest and I hope to complement this material with more general reflections of interest to me, and hopefully to one or two of you as well.  I am a member of two associations Asociación Cultural Jacarilla 2012 and its section Mujeres por Mujeres and the Adapt Theatre Group.

Some time ago, I produced six videos to help with people with their spoken Spanish, entitled Spanish pronunciation for English speakers and you can watch them these links: One, Two, Three, Four, Five, Six. and here are two videos to help with the uses of Ser and Estar and Por and Para.

For Spanish speakers learning English I have three videos – Las vocales en inglés, Las consonantes en inglés and Como hacerse entender mejor en inglés.

Apart from language teaching I have indulged in some stand-up comedy and if you’d like to see the results, here they are.  Firstly my stand-up comedy show Not Mentioned in the BrochurePart One, Part Two, Part Three and Part Four and my forays into Spanish stand-up in the guise of Juana la Loca.  This video Mi arból ginecológico won first prize in a micro-theatre competition, and here are some others:  Mis Secretos para una vida equilibrada, and Juana performing live in the Jacarilla fiestas 2014 and 2019.
