Hi everybody, I´m from Barcelona and I have been working in adult schools since 2000, teaching English, Spanish and Catalan. I am currently working at CFA Pere Calders (adult school) in Barcelona. I´m really happy to be a member of this incredible community. By the way, I use the Andorran flag because I´m often there and it´s where my parents live.
