Fiona is a certified EFL/ESOL teacher and worked full time as an English language teacher in Spain for 6 years. Between 2013-2017 she started and ran an English language teaching project for refugees and undocumented migrants in Madrid, recruiting other teachers to join the programme.
Although on the face of it we’re teaching English, we’re also exchanging cultural knowledge and increasing understanding among people from all over the world. While empowering those who have been negatively and unfairly impacted by conflict or persecution, we’re also learning such a great deal from them in return. I am so privileged to be able to see the impact we’re having each day, and to work on and learn from such an incredible venture.
