I'm a very ugly montser!!

What better way to learn about facial features than to sing a song about a really ugly monster with 6 dirty ears?! We're also practising grammar by using "have got" to talk about the different parts of the face. So it's a fun and intinuitive way of acquiring new vocabulary and grammar. The students are having a lot of fun but I think the teacher's having an even better time!

Meet the teachers!


L’Andy és un vetarà de la nostra escola, fins i tot en alguna ocasió ha fet la substitució com a director del centre. L’Andy també ha endut cap endavant un projecte de cursos online, fa seminaris per professors nous i també és “levelleader”per un parell de nivells. I sense dubte és la estrella de les Pantomimes!

I've been teaching since 2003. First in the Costa Brava before joining Cambridge School in 2012. 

1) Where are you from? 
I'm originally from Dundee, Scotland. It's just over an hour's drive from Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland. It's known as the 'City of Discovery' because the ship, 'The Discovery' was built there. It took Captain Scott to the Antartic on his doomed expedition to reach the south pole. Dundee is also home to the brand new Victoria and Albert design museum designed by a famous Japanese architect. I'm also a big fan of the once great Dundee United who knocked Barcelona out of the UEFA cup in the 1986/87 season but who are now languishing in the Scottish Championship league.

2) What did you do before becoming an English teacher? 
I studied Law at University and briefly worked in a solicitor's office before deciding it wasn't for me. I've also worked in publishing in London among other things.
3) What brought you here? 
Love, the usual story. My partner's family emigrated here from Argentina many years ago and we decided to start a family here. We have an eight year old daughter called Aila.

4) What is it like living/working here?
Fantastic. I live in the Costa Brava and I'm surrounded by beautiful mountains and beaches. It's only an hour's drive to the Pyrenees and the south of France, too.
5) What do you do in your free time?
I love singing. I used to sing in a choir in Sant Feliu de Guixols called 'Cypsella' and have recently joined the CS Sant Celoni choir.. I also love to act and often appear in the school panto. I do yoga twice a week which helps me relax. My friends have a converted water mill in the French Pyrenees near Canigou and we often go there to chill out.
