About me

Hello! I'm James and I want to share my love of languages with you! I study Modern Languages and Linguistics at Newcaslte University and am currently teaching English as part of my year abroad in Normandy/Valencia! Learning a language or languages is, in my opinion, one of the best decisions you can ever make and I want to help you achieve your linguistic goals. I firmly believe that anybody can learn to speak any foreign language with enough effort, and if they learn it in the right way (the one that works for them). I am currently spending a year teaching in France and Spain as part of my degree and it is reinforcing my passion for languages. I also really believe that when learning a language, the culture is as important as the grammar, and I love sharing the cultures of other countries with students.

About my sessions

My priority when teaching is always to help the student to achieve the goal that they have set for themselves. This means that the student has the power to direct the style of learning and the content we cover, which makes the learning more enjoyable and effective. Of course, if the student is preparing for an exam, the syllabus will be covered in detail, but always in a way that makes the student want to cover it.

Questions James has answered

Why can't you say actualmente to mean actually?

Traditionally, 'actually' meant 'currently' in English, as it does in Spanish now. How we use the word in English has changed, so now we use it to mean 'in fact', but in Spanish, that change hasn't happened. This means that in the phrase 'El perro está actualmente en la playa' the translation would be 'the dog is currently on the beach'. If you wanted to say 'in fact, the dog is on the beach', you could say 'de hecho/realmente/en verdad el perro está en la playa'.Traditionally, 'actually' meant 'currently' in English, as it does in Spanish now.
