Irene Carrasco

¡Hola! I’m an Assistant Teacher and Programmes Assistant.

I got into this gig because:

I love to teach, I started in Spain with pre-school kids, then primary students and now, in London, adults. I qualified as a language teacher and I know how difficult it is to learn a second language. Its great to help people learn and watch them improve their Spanish!

Outside of Stripey Spanish you will find me:

Reading a book in a park, doing exercises (sometime dancing, but I’m not a good dancer :P) or enjoying a beer with my friends.

Carla Jones

¡Hola! I’m the Founder Director and Lead 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.

¡Hola! I’m a teaching assistant.

I got into this gig because:

Teaching is my passion, I started teaching in Spain doing extracurricular activities with children and then in an NGO with adults in Peru and now I’m qualified as to teach Spanish as a foreign language. From experience, I know how difficult it is to learn a language, but it is definitely possible if you have patience and enthusiasm. I give you a lot of positive energy!

I got into this gig because:

I think its great to learn a language, especially so you can actually talk to people when you go travelling. I love working with people, all our students are so lovely and its great to see them develop and become amazing at Spanish!
