Hi all: My name is Imogen. I am a linguist by education and profession. I learnt Spanish in South America but went through the British Education System with French. I have spent most of my career as an MFL teacher specialising in all things Latin America and I speak French and Spanish fluently. Spanish is my strongest foreign language. I am now mostly a teacher of English for Academic Purposes and ESP English for Specific Purposes to post graduates wanting to study in this country. I publish resources and also teach one to one. I have always been fascinated by the idea of adding another type of language to my many bow strings and now I have a further personal reason. My 9 year old nephew has down syndrome and uses Makaton. Since BSL and Makaton are related I decided to learn them both at the same time.
