I started teaching English in Barcelona in 1976, having just completed a PGCE. My intention was to stay abroad for a year or two before looking for a job in a primary school. That ‘year or two’ became eleven or twelve years in various European countries. When I finally decided to come back, I was lucky enough to be offered the chance to become a teacher trainer. The great thing about the job is the opportunity it affords to meet interesting people from every part of the world.
