Carla Jones

¡Hola! I’m the Founder Director and a qualified Spanish Teacher.

+ I got into this gig because...

...languages are cool! I grew up partly in Spain, got back to the UK and decided to pursue my passion: first Uni, then international Communications gaining coverage in Latin America before diving into secondary teaching. I qualified as a Spanish teacher at the Institute of Education and taught young people before hatching a plan to teach adults and launch a radically unique Spanish school.

+ Check out my tune from the Spanish - speaking world...

...'Rumbera' by Systema Solar.

I chose it because it’s fun, upbeat and represents a cool sound from the Carribean region of Colombia that makes you want to move.

+ My biggest interest in language-learning is...

...the cultural exchange. All the languages and cultures you learn change the way you perceive and experience the world. Also, languages are an open door to meet interesting people, places and different customs.

...going around exploring London, working on my illustrations, visiting museums and exhibitions or enjoying live music while drinking a beer.

+ Check out my tune from the Spanish - speaking world...
