Sobre mí

I am an English professor, in love with literature and keen on linguistics analysis. I love learning about mythology, history, physics...knowledge is a Diamond and I am still putting pressure to my bit of coal. I fancy comics, science fiction, horror....I am a huge fan of supernatural Tv series and love movies and music. I firmly believe age is a state of the mind and that one never stops learning. I started my learning trip in Telecommunications, then I studied English Philology and did my Master in Education, followed by a Doctoral Thesis in linguistics. Apart from English, I have studied French and German and my research has been focused on the study of Discourse Markers and linguistics in general. I have worked as highschool, vocational training and university professor. I have collaborated with several institutions in diverse areas from Music to translation, terminology and documentation or subtitling. I have been instructor for Cambridge, TOEFL, TOEIC and Trinity for many years, still doing so, and I am currently developing my career as professor and researcher in both Complutense University and CENP, teaching English for different degrees: English studies, linguistics, literature, graphic design, interior design, advertising, business and so on; I am both  TFG and TFM tutor and wish to be PhD tutor too. As I said, I love reading, this is the link to my goodreads profile:
