  • Description

    My name is Adam and I am 31 and from England
    About me:
    I am currently a Spanish teacher in a boarding school in England but I have just handed my notice in so I can see more of Spain and Latin America next year. My aim is to work in San Sebastián until November when I go up to Andorra or Baqueira Beret to work a ski season. After that hopefully I can go to Central America.
    I have a degree in Hispanic Studies (which included Spanish, and teaching English in Madrid for 1 year), and then I did a Masters in fine art. After that I started working at a brewery, then I travelled a little in South America, now I teach Spanish. While in South America I volunteered on a ranch in Peru for 2 months which was awesome, and taught me about horses. I love playing rugby and cricket when I can. I also really enjoy building things - tables and benches and beds mostly. . I still make art and sometimes have commissions, usually portraits or figurative work.
    My main goal is to speak as much Spanish as possible, also to have a complete change of environment for a year.

    Anyway, that's the plan! let me know if I sound like someone you could use!
    Un abrazo
