My name is Adam and I am 31 and from England
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!
I am artistic and very creative. I am also hands-on and ready to get stuck in, I am athletic and physically able. I can also help with computers, I have teaching experience with young kids and adults, I have worked on building sites so I have basic building knowledge and skills.
More details about my language interests
Happy to help with English conversation and/or exchange it for Spanish practice
I love being active, and beach life. I have also started learning the guitar and drums. I (try and) draw when I can and have tried to start reading a lot more.
