About Me

I´m a 27-year-old British guy living in Barcelona. I work as a university English teacher and I have my own business (called Exile English) for Spanish university students who want to go and live abroad. I´m interested in photography, philosophy, politics and Manchester United. I can speak Spanish pretty well because my girlfriend was born in Venezuela and she helps me out a LOT...

Llevo 4 anos viviendo aquí en Barcelona y me encanta aun mas cada día. He aprendido castellano mas o menos en la calle, hablando con la gente, mis alumnos, y con me novia que es Venezolana.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I want to make friends, get to know other cultures, and especially learn new languages. I´m an introvert who works as an extrovert, so making good friends can be tricky for me sometimes. I think couchsurfing is a great way to meet like-minded people (it´s how I met my girlfriend!)

Y para practicar español! Si quieres hacer un intercambio, dime!!

Teach, Learn, Share

My favourite English sentence;

All the faith he had had had had no effect on the outcome of his life

What I Can Share with Hosts

Excellent jokes, underwhelming limericks, a love of food, English & Spanish practice, good conversation, interesting stories, mad selfie skills, the ability to immediately identify any actor´s previously most-famous role whilst watching any series.

Tmb se chistes en castellano, eh, mas que en ingles... y son BUENOS a pesar de lo que podrías haber oído...
