Hi, I’m Gerda. Originally from Austria, I decided to make London my new home inIMG-20170418-WA0015 1993. In my 30s I completed a degree in English and Spanish, and this is when Esther and I began hosting Weekend Courses in Medina de Rioseco. I enjoyed it so much that I decided to get into teaching myself. I retrained and became an independent German language coach leaving full-time employment as an Area Sales Manager in the Food Industry.  I’ve been a freelance teacher ever since, teaching small groups and one on one lessons for Lingua Diversa and Professional Language Solutions . In 2015 I completed an MA in Education: Culture, Language, and Identity and in my spare time I love cooking, eating, traveling and going for long walks especially by the sea…yes, and I enjoy taking photos and reading and singing even though I’m not really good at it but that’s part of the fun…and finally I love to laugh at life.
I started this blog to motivate myself and practice writing in English whilst studying. I hope you enjoy reading about my interests, thoughts, experiences – anything really that pops into my mind that teases me until it’s finally released on this site.

        How many languages do you know in total?
        I’ve always been fond of learning new languages online.

        Not that many 😉 …German (MT), English, Spanish and a very rusty school French, hehe. And Asian languages are there on my list of languages to learn!

        I know the Asian languages and the rest you know are on my list 😀
        Good luck for learning 🙂
