mejorar mi español, learn how to dance
I live in Cambridge, I am an English teacher. I recently spent 15 months living in south america and am now worried I am going to forget how to speak spanish! I like meeting foreigners!
This is hard to sum up. Especially as I have been socialised in a climate of British cynicism. I guess I would say I try to be openminded as possible. I like arguing vociferously and passionately about perhaps trivial things, but try to keep myself aware that I may well be wrong.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I live in a small apartment with my parents so I cannot offer you somewhere to sleep, but would like to meet for a coffee/beer.
Phenomenal. Whilst in Ecuador I had planned to spend two days in Cuenca. Because of couchsurfing I met some amazing people and ended up staying ten months.
learning languages, eating, reading,
Music, Movies, and Books
movies: anything by woody allen, historical/political themed films are also good - I have been watching a lot of ken loach movies recently
music: salsa, latino pop (is that a genre?), andres cepeda, bob dylan, the beatles.
books: some novels but mainly non fiction. Currently reading a book about wikileaks. The last book I read was The Road to Wigan Pier. Last book I really enjoyed: Bad Girl by Mario Vargas Llosa
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Most of my experience living in South America (Ecuador and Argentina) was fascinating. Interpreting at a narcotics anonymous meeting in the Ecuadorean amazon, and accidentally living in a shantytown in Argentina have made for good stories
Teach, Learn, Share
I can teach you some English, or some spanish if you happen to be learning.
I am willing, and hope to learn about almost anything, especially if it conflicts with what I already think!
