I have worked in Tourism and Business industries for almost ten years and simultaneously developing experience as an EFL teacher in higher education in Mexico. It was my passion for teaching and my desire to acquire professional knowledge in education, what drove me to start a master degree in Applied Linguistics for Language Teaching at the University of Southampton in 2015.
