Book a Class Book a Translation

Alan has been living in Barcelona since he qualified in 2006 with the Trinity Certificate in  TESOL, and 5 years later the Cambridge Diploma in teaching English to adults. He’s an English teacher, teacher trainer, translator, proof-reader/editor and materials writer based in Barcelona.

His academic background is in Anthropology and Linguistics and he’s a keen language learner, having studied six languages in his time; Catalan most recently. So he understands what his students are going through!

Alan enjoys speaking to students, learning about their cultures and lives and helping them to express themselves.

An important part of this is working on students’ pronunciation and building their vocabulary.

I specialise in classes with older learners, in-company English and Exam preparation for Cambridge FCE / CAE / IELTS, among others.
