real language for real life
I’m a British-born professional translator and language teacher working with Spanish and English. I live in Auckland, New Zealand’s largest city.
I help people translate text from one language to another and learn language skills.
Language, like life, is constantly changing. I create texts and teach language that is current, relevant and accurate.
