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.

    • I love languages and work in Diversity and Inclusion work for an LGBT charity, and so wanted to combine my love of languages with being inclusive, which led me to sign language. I hope that I will be able to learn to sign clearly and well and that this skill will aid me in learning how to create inclusive spaces for Deaf and signing people.
