Sebastian Rodriguez

I am a native Spanish lecturer and have a Masters degree in Language Education. I have over twenty years’ experience teaching across a wide range of settings and levels including undergraduate, AS/A Levels, GCSE and Adult Education. I have carried out research in the field of adults learning Spanish in creative ways. Before this chapter of my life in the UK I was an actor and then a theatre director for ten years in Spain. So my teaching is often creative and entertaining! I’m passionate about my language and love helping people learn more about Spanish and Hispanic culture. In my spare time I love going to the theatre, being in my garden learning about plants and trees or sitting down developing my knowledge and love of red wine!
