About me

My name is Virginia and I am a fully qualified language teacher with over 16 years of experience. I grew up in Mendoza, Argentina, by the beautiful Andes mountain range. I graduated as an English Teacher and worked in primary and secondary schools and private language institutions in my home town.

I came to the UK and taught Spanish from complete beginners to A-levels at a comprehensive secondary school in Reading for six years. I was then privileged to become the Head of Spanish at a private boarding school in Oxford where I really enjoyed my teaching experience. Eight years later I got married and started developing my vision of a new way of learning, which I call Joyful Spanish.

Joyful Spanish is about bringing joy into learning, getting together, exploring the wonders of the Spanish speaking world, sharing our views and above all – enjoying the experience!
