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 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!
