Meet Chris, one of our English teachers.
Hello, my name is Chris I teach at Speak Your Mind Diagonal and I am from Glasgow in Scotland. I have been living in this amazing city for just over four years now. I guess I should tell you a bit about my past and what brought me here.
Firstly I feel very lucky to have the opportunity to be writing this as I believe this is a very special school and method that puts the learner´s needs first, ok with that out the road, down to business!
I was born in a town just outside of Glasgow in Scotland and spent the beginning of my life there. I moved around as a child and have lived on a farm in the country, a flat in the city and a house in a town. All this before High School!
As an adult I had many a great experience from building a playground in Tunisia to owning my own bar and music recording studio in Glasgow. My hobbies and interests are quite varied, I love music and I am an avid collector of vinyl records, I also part run a monthly music night in Grácia!
I have a dog that I enjoy taking to the beach or the mountains for a nice long walk. I found my way to Barcelona by chance, I met a very beautiful Spanish girl in Glasgow who was moving back here to finish her master’s degree and I felt obliged to come along and give her moral support, the rest as they say is history.
I have been teaching now for four years in Barcelona and I have to say it is one of the most rewarding jobs I have ever had.
